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.

Fred’s growing up

Now it’s getting exciting.  We went out to see our boy/house, Fred, this weekend.  It’s starting to feel like the house we’ve been imagining, with walls that show how the slanted/shed roof will give us a wonderful tall entryway…the outlines of the rooms laid out on the now-framed floor…and a general physical representation of the house that will, pretty soon now (next Spring), become our home.
