Flooding in Tillamook

Well, that didn’t take long. Before I bought the home I made sure the flood certificate was adequate (home is 16.8 ft above the river and no history of flooding in the home).

Or was it?

My land between the home and river turned into…………the river.

And after.

Let’s not do this again, shall we? These photos taken from my front porch. And the water came up to the foundation of the home.

May there always be work for your hands to do,

May your purse always hold a coin or two.

May the sun always shine on your windowpane,

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the hand of a friend always be near you,

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

 

 

Meditation

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing – just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park? ~Ralph Marston

Blue Willow Lavender Farm Part II!

http://www.bluewillowlavenderfarm.com/Blue_Willow_Lavender_Farm/Welcome.html

This place is a bit tricky to find but I promise if you are a lavender lover and are in the neighborhood it is totally worth your time to walk around, inhale the scents, and absorb the peace of the entire farm.  There are multiple places to sit, strategic places next to trees where there is shade.  The store is amazing and glowing with brilliantly flowering roses and lavender.

Tracy, the owner, is as kind and earthy as can be.

Truly a beautiful experience.
