A few weeks back, my husband and Duhgall took a road trip up to the Pacific Northwest to the state of Washington. My husband’s sister lives there, along with her husband and their Queensland Heeler, Miss Dinkham. I shared the photo above on my last post and Mary asked if that was my view. (No, it isn’t but I sure would love to have a place like this!) After Mary’s question, I thought I’d share a little bit more about the home of my dear family that is blessed to have a small slice of pure Heaven on earth.
If you read the two previous posts, you will recognize Miss Dinkham (below) – in a much more subdued state I might add. The stacked rock wall that Dinky is standing on was made by my SIL, and it took her three years to put it together. There is more of the wall that wraps along their property and this is just a small portion of it. My SIL has always inspired me to do more. She is a renaissance woman who can do anything she puts her mind to. One of the photos in this post is of a stained glass window she made for her home and another is of her amazing garden with raised beds for vegetables, herbs and flowers. Years ago she raised her own sheep, sheared their wool, spun the wool and made items with the wool on her large weaving loom. She is a wonderful cook, seamstress, quilter, photographer and gardener. (So, dear sister, if you are reading this…just smile and pat yourself on the back…you deserve it!)
The following photos are images that my husband took while visiting. So come along to see what my family was up to while away from home. Duhgall enjoyed his visit and got plenty of good sniffin’ done whilst there and had a ball playing with Dinky.
My brother in law is a wonderful cook, too, and made the homemade sourdough bread on his grill. They finished up the evening with a refreshing beverage that had to have a pink flamingo stir stick!
(Next time I am making that trip!)
