Mosaic Monday

This is my Mosaic Monday without linking up. On Friday the 23rd of June we traveled east over the Cascade Mountain Range along Interstate 90 to Colville.  When we reach Spokane we head north and connect to Hwy 395 to travel the last 70 miles of our journey. As we near Chewelah we see many familiar signs. In the summertime the streets in Chewelah and Colville are lined with flower displays in hanging baskets and along the road in planters. On this journey we stopped at our favorite Mexican Restaurant in Chewelah, El Ranchito for an early lunch.

Continuing north on 395 you can tell you are in logging country.

We took a back road to get to our kid’s home and enjoyed these great country scenes along the way.

Then we arrived to see who we really wanted to see. She charmed us with many expressions and moods.

Yawns galore before she had another afternoon nap.

Sometimes she needs to express herself and she gets all our attention. It was a nice drive and reunion.

We will have had three full days with the kids before we head home early Tuesday morning. Sunday was the hottest day so far here and today is another hot one with temps expected to hit 93 with possible thunderstorms. With no air-conditioning it gets hard to do anything but sit around in front of fans. It’s cooling down a bit the next couple of days.

Hope all is well in your corner of the world.

  1. I enjoy seeing the sights along your drive. You captured Addy’s many expressions very well. She is really pretty. Praying for your safe travel home.

  2. My daughter is in Spokane attending a business meeting this evening! She flew in this morning and returns home tomorrow. It was nice to see a glimpse of it on your blog, Ellen. Your Addy is adorable and I know every second you spend with her is precious. She is showing lots of personality now–so sweet!

  3. I hope that your son and daughter-in-love don’t hear that. ☺️ Give Mom and Dad a grandchild and become second string. LOL! It never fails.

  4. NICE pictures. We see quite a few logging trucks come through town.
    Love all those petunias. Mine were eaten up by the resident rabbit.

  5. It’s fun to take a back road and vary the trip. Of course, any way to get to Addy is fine, right?!

    Ugh. Those temps do not sound pleasant. Maybe that’s why Addy is being “expressive.”

  6. Loved the pictures of all that caught your attention during your trip to your son’s home, but I especially loved the pictures of sweet Addy. 🙂 She is a sweetie. Hope you had a safe trip home today.
