How Things Sit in May…

I wanted to get some views of our country bungalow so I would have some before shots since painting the exterior of our home is on our minds.

We are still deciding on the color palette. Our garage and shop are a biscuit color. We aren’t planning on matching the three structures.

While I was doing this walkabout I took some photos of our views first looking North.

This section of our front yard has this lane and to the right are some bushes and trees, a ditch and then the road.

Following our road you will eventually get to the Canadian border.

Southeast you see some of the destruction from a fire a few years before we moved here.

Looking to the East from our property.

We are more and more thankful for God’s leading in our move to this part of Washington State. I didn’t know how I’d manage being so far from a large city and all the conveniences a large city has to offer. We’ve managed just fine. I’ve embraced Wal-Mart. We have many small businesses that we try to support. We have a hospital. Our church is Bible believing (Inerrancy of the Bible), Bible teaching, Gospel centered (Teaching God’s Truth, not stories or opinion), and doctrinally sound. If that was missing it would be tough to live here. Having our middle son, his wife and our two grandchildren here goes a long way in adding to our country comfort. We are able to travel South whenever we feel the need to stock up the pantry with offerings from Costco or Trader Joe’s.  We travel about 70 miles generally without any traffic and at 60 miles an hour most of the way. There are only 2 stop lights between our home and the Spokane area. One of those stoplights is in our town and the other one is in Chewelah twenty three miles apart.  Spokane has all the box stores and a myriad of restaurants to choose from.

Moving onward into the last full week of May and ending with Memorial Weekend. Hope all is well from where you are sitting.

  1. Ellen, thank you for sharing these photos. Your property has stunning views. What a blessing to live in a place where the beauty of God’s creation shines forth so fully. Can’t wait to see what color(s) you choose for your lovely home. I’m so glad you found a Bible believing and teaching church. That’s so critical. Have a great week! xx

  2. I enjoyed seeing the setting for your home now that spring is here. Those trees! My cousin is currently in Whidbey island but moving to San Diego (Navy husband). Northeastern WA is certainly beautiful country.

  3. It is so encouraging to look and see our Father’s hand in our situation! I am glad that you live in a beautiful place, with beloved family nearby and a Bible-teaching church (important)!

    We feel the same about our move six years ago. The timing was perfect and so much good came of it, even though we had not been looking to move.

  4. You live in such a beautiful area.
    We too moved from a large city area (between DC and Baltimore) 8 years ago to our small town in Garrett county, MD and have no regrets at all.
    Any ideas about colors for your house yet? Will you paint it yourselves?

    • Karen, yes, Dear will paint it himself. We are looking a greyish blue (Teton Blue by Behr) with white trim. Right now it’s a greyish green. The photos above aren’t true to it’s current color.

  5. I’m so glad that we visited you in summer of 2019, especially having no idea at that time how long it would be that we would not be able to get together! It’s so good to be able to envision your house, yard and surrroundings. A beautiful spot!
