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
