  1. Oregon coast. The coastal areas have been depressed for a number of years. Tourism is on the rise - those aren't family wage jobs, though.


    Pansy, I was in SW Washington today and the sun was shining! It was beautiful at Ledbetter State Park.

  2. Good evening,


    I haven't been here in quite some time. Summer flew by. My Mom passed away earlier this month and we had a memorial service for her last Saturday in another city. This weekend my sons are here and we're talking about what we will do with the things she left. There are two old, old wedding bands - we think one was my grandmother's and the other was from a family friend who died in childbirth probably over 80 years ago.


    Mommafitz, I love being the first one up. I hope you and your family stay well. I haven't heard of the flu here although I've heard one case was diagnosed in our state. I need to put hand sanitizer on my list.


    snapshotmiki, From places I've been recently it looks like aprons are making a revival. I never gave mine up. Enjoy your new sewing machine.

  3. Happy Resurrection Day.


    My sons are both here. I'm waiting for my turn in the shower to get ready for church. I just realized the community outdoor service wasn't advertised this year. It almost always rains and then is redirected to one of the churches so probably just as well.


    We're going to a brunch this afternoon and then oldest son goes to work (works where we are having brunch).


  4. It was 54 here today with some rain. Tomorrow will be 55 & lots of rain.


    Those morrels make me want to take a walk in the woods, too. We have not found morrels yet but there is hope.


    My oldest son is living with us and since his work hours are so short he has been making nature trails in the woods near us. We saw it for the first time earlier this week. He built two arches bending two elderberries together and then reinforcing them with every stick and twig he could find, plus a lot of other nice features (when I figure it out I'll add pictures). Today he found two teenagers sitting near "his trail" and a homeless person further in. I hope they don't ruin it or try to camp there.

  5. Interesting. I love jerusalem artichokes. Think I'll plant some next spring. I'm glad I got a heads up on using a container so they don't take over.

    I am about to harvest 4 stevia plants. I'll miss them in the big planter on the patio. Everytime I go out there to check out the garden I pinch off a leaf to chew on.


  6. I loved that series. There is a book (October Song?)that links characters from several books together.

    For my birthday I got the first book in a new series by Beverly Lewis, The Parting (Courtship of Nellie Fisher, book 1).

    I have also been reading a series by Wanda Brunstetter- The Quilter's Daughter, The Storekeeper's Daughter and The Bishop's Daughter. She has other series, too.

    A little off topic, but are there Amish stores where you live? I was surprised when two opened in our area (about 50 miles apart). They are not Amish owned but there are Amish goods sold- beautiful furniture, noodles, candy, popcorn, relish. I do love the swivel, gliding rocking chairs.
