Smiles and Connections

We took a quick trip to Spokane on May 7th and the Fred Meyer Garden center was hopping and the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile was front and center. It’s always fun to see one of these vehicles and it prompts my mind to start singing that jingle…Oh I wish…

On the highway drive to and from Spokane these fields of yellow were a fun thing to see, too. There has been some debate on what kind of crop it is. Some felt too early for Canola also known as Rapeseed.

This past Wednesday after Dear worked on taping and mudding some ceiling drywall in the Shop we decided to head to Chewelah for early dinner (real early) and after our meal we stopped by this relatively new establishment on Main Street in Chewelah called Mountain Market on Main. We were glad we stopped. So far there are three separate shops in this old restored schoolhouse, Gather, Flora, and The Nest.

We had a nice long conversation with the owner of the building and came to find out we had mutual friends and connections from our times living on the west side of the Cascades. It’s a small world after all. There are plans afoot to expand the services offered in this great building. This will be a fun destination for family and friends who come to visit our corner of the world.

  1. That looks a very special shop love the yellow field, it looks like rapeseed to me. In the uk there are lots at the moment. Jersey only has a few and they are often later. Have a great week. B x

  2. The song will now officially take over my consciousness for the remainder of this day…and if I’m lucky, get a 2nd wind right around the time I lay down to go to sleep tonight. Thank you very much!😐🤣🤣🤣

    Neat sights to see on your trip out and about! Expansive fields of just about anything are always impressive! This photo looks like something out of National Geographic!

    We live in historic Longview Farm. There are still a few historic buildings that have yet to be converted. (One of the largest is now a FABULOUSLY appointed elementary school.) I wish one of them could be transformed into shops like these!!!

  3. Oh how I long to go shopping again in a store such as this! It reminds me of the store my friend and I used to co-own many moons ago. Have a great week Ellen!

  4. My husband was able once to ride in the Oscar Meyer Mobile! It was fun! Mountain Market looked so nice and full of beautiful things.

  5. Singing the jingle along with you now . . . even as Michael Card is singing “You Are Worthy” in the background! Mountain Market sounds like my kind of store!

  6. Oooh that Mountain Market looks like fun!! That yellow field is so beautiful. I thought it was just a field of flowers, it sure is pretty. The Wiener Mobile! Now I have the song stuck in my head…
