Wolf Blood Moon


well it's not easy to take pictures of the moon


there was an eclipse Sunday evening


but you need a better camera to show the red

My own Doodles


This old plan I kind of like


but we need to move the garage


a couple attempts later


maybe change the entrance?


this is plan number 12 or so
the top is where the road is
the screened in porch is on the side of the lane way

I'll likely still draw plant 13, 14....
But it helps you think


update, for plan 13 I changed the stairs

Sun Dogs


Sunday morning, Marc on the grader stopped to take this picture
He called it:
The Sundogs chasing the Cat


I missed the sundogs in the morning
the curtains were closed due to the cold


but they were back in the afternoon

Getting inspiration at Quality Homes


Currently our plan is to build a custom home


but friends suggested to visit some prefab houses 
from Quality Homes


a good place to get some inspiration


and a feeling for how plans look in real life


some nice features in this first house


this house looks very friendly


I don't like the entry way


but love the natural light


this house is way to plain


nope, don't really like it


last one on the lot


this one is wheelchair accessible 


some things I like


I missed the porch that I later saw on the drawing


large bathroom
yes was a nice visit

Felker's Falls


starting at Paramount Park Stoney Creek
we quickly found ourselves at Felker's Falls
Frozen Beauty


no snow on the ground here


but water was easier to spot due to being frozen


a different group then usual


looking up at Devil's Punchbowl


not easy to get closer


some sections we had quite the workout


we did see a train a little later


mostly we were in the shade


but out of the wind it was still pretty good
