Fred in the snow (inside and out)

January 18th, 2013 by

When I woke up this morning and saw the snow on the ground, I did something that would not normally happen: got dressed before I’d finished my coffee (!!!!), got in my little red Miata, and drove on icy roads–fishtailing every once in the while on the way there–to take pictures of Fred with his fresh white topping of snow.  The unexpected benefit was that there’s now heat inside, so when I opened the door to take a few interior shots my glasses steamed up and I said “ahhhhh.”  The morning sunlight is just beautiful out on our land, and it streams through the windows and skylights with utter abandon.

best Christmas present ever.

His first serious project built in the woodworking studio he put together here in order to build wonderful things for our new home: a beautiful small desk for me, of walnut and ash, to set my laptop on and write when I visit his shop.  The only present I can imagine bringing more tears to my eyes (he also put together the gorgeous curved ornament stand on top of this desk) will be next year, when we have Christmas in our new home.  He even covered that with a printout of a SketchUp.  NOW I know where he’s been these long hours…

Hindsight is always 20/20, isn’t it?  In retrospect, I wish I’d hung a wreath from someplace on our rapidly-growing home–there is no front door, as yet, to hook it onto, but someplace…ah well.

It’s been a while since I posted exterior shots, so herewith: what ahnF is resembling these days.  He’s got a nice face, don’t you think?  And if anyone doubted this house would be Modern, with a capital M…or is that Contemporary with a capital C?…these shots of the garage wall and my lovely tall L-shaped kitchen window trio should put those doubts to bed like a little kid on Christmas Eve.Garage wall, from the west.

From the inside, it’s my first initial.

Looking more and more house-like, eh?
