As Promised....

I have been back from Washington state since Monday night. Unfortunately, farm chores and moving have kept me from sharing pictures of my adventure.

I spent Wednesday through Monday visiting with Gracie, "Katmom". Together we attended the Maryjane's Farm Fair 2009. Some of the activities included dinners, a reception, a visit to Maryjane's Farm store in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, wine tasting with our friend, Michele, aka "Huckleberry Wine", an "earth" luncheon, fair, and lots of antique shopping. It was a whirlwind tour of Eastern Washington and an area known as the Palouse. This part of the state is comprised of small towns and vast wheat and grass farms. The countryside is green fields as far as you can see, dotted by an occasional grove of pine trees, and an occasional barn. It is lush, yet austere.
Here are a few pictures of the countryside....
Thursday's dinner out with "the girls"....me, Gracie, Michelle, Karen, and on the other side of the table from left to right: Amanda, Carol, Cheryl, Pat, Gail and Marcie.
Friday night's trip to Maryjane's store for a reception and a chance to meet Maryjane....
Saturday's Farm Fair and trip down the Palouse offered us the chance to tour an old Mill owned by Maryjane....

To be continued......
