My House

eve 039

I live in the Eastern part of Washington State…on my very own place….13 acres of it, in a 106 year old farm house and I love it.  It is hard clay soil not good for much…a constant battle with weeds but the battle for the simple life, just keeps me going.

It must be in my nature, this desire for the country, big spaces…’cause it’s where I want to be.  I am fortunate..I love it here.  It is never the same from day to day, it can be a harsh environment, at times, one must be poised..always ready for the unpredictable elements.  I am after all, in the country.

  12. Hi neighbor! Loving reading your blog and loving your vintage trailer even more. Your home and property are beautiful! I, too, live on acreage on the West Plains and also love it. It can be harsh (think: WIND) and it gets a little lonely sometimes, but that's why I have my friends and my girls--3 dogs and 2 cats! Best wishes. ~Karen (yeah, I'm Karen, too!)
