My Happy Place




Growing up it was on the old tree branch that lay partly across the river, or atop Welch Mtn. My mom worked at the base of this mtn so i could easily hike up, and did so numerous times a week. Blueberry season was always wonderful as you could just graze, relax, etc.

Now one of my fav places is this lake, lower Lena Lake. It is about an hour from our home but hubby and i go backpack up often and camp out there, peaceful, quiet, he fishes, i knit by the water. Camping by the water has been something we have enjoyed together since we first married and went camping in northern WA in december. His dad was so made at him for taking his new wife (and preggers wife) camping in december, he didn't really know me yet back then. Now he wouldn't even question it. When he asked why i needed a 4 wheel drive i responded, "well, you just never know when you'll feel like driving across that cow field" Now i just amuse him, in a good way!

It's really important to have a Happy Place like this. It looks lovely.
My Happy Place is the field behind our barn. It's a perfect spot to catch the sunrise or see the contrast of the leaves and the sky just before or after a fall storm. And it's steeped in family history.

What an incredible place to knit. I love the sounds of the outdoors, the fresh air and solitude.
