At the moment, I seem to be stuck on the Twilight Zone. I'm continually amazed at the storytelling. In one short episode, the flesh out characters and totally nail a plot that freaks me out. How do they do that?
I won't be talking about my own storytelling because this blog is about everything else that interests me.
I've missed blogging and found Facebook just too restrictive for everything I like to do.
I'm finding that sometimes some features on Blogger won't work. Don't yet know if it's Blogger or this computer.

My personal favorite is the rock house built into the side of a mountain. It looks half traditional Alaskan fur trapper's combined with the Hobbit Hole.
Of course, there are a range of styles when you talk about the cabin, everything from totally rustic to ultra-modern log mansion. I'm more on the rustic side. I wouldn't want to go anything more high-tech than an antique cookstove from the 1940s. But, that's just me.
The lakeside cabins were cool with their own docks.
I really like the ones with the huge windows all glowing in the night.
There are also some floorplans and décor suggestions too. And one with an adjacent lighthouse. Some like to take old cabins and transform them into modern oasis, which is cool. Not for me though. I'll take that old butter churn and use it the way God intended, thank you very much.
Of course, the rest of my family...uh...not so much. They like to recharge their iPhones and such.
There's some landscaping plans and ideas too. I really like that. I told my husband he must landscape in such a way that it looks awesome, but it looks like it just happened.
Oh, migoodness, there's one picture of a seriously cool kitchen that has an enormous farm sink and ragged old green cupboards.
Another cabin is half-built out of shipping containers.
My favorite is still the Alaskan Furtrapper's Hobbit Hole though.
Definitely get this book if you're at all curious about getting away from it all!

1) Get into Winter Camping, including snowshoe.
2) Write Grizzly Bear's Child and Sugar Crash, rough drafts at least.
3) Perfect Dutch Oven Cooking
4) Have sit-down meals at the family table with good manners displayed by the entire herd of offspring.
5) Establish my chicken flock, rabbit herd, worm bins, and garden.
6) Put into practice all the lessons on compassion I learned by receiving so much of it during this past, very difficult year.
That'll do! I'd add 'lose weight,' but I figure Winter Camping will take care of that.
