Mary Rea | Swimsuit search rarely successful

I’ve never been a huge fan of swimsuit shopping. The suit I wear now was purchased on sale at Rawson’s in Omak at least 10 years ago. Every June, I promise myself I’ll buy a new one, but the purchase becomes so excruciating I can’t force myself to go through with it.

Mary Rea | A chore thing

In Mazama, the day comes when the light coming through the front windows changes. The sun has gotten higher in the sky and shifted to the south a little. It’s a sure sign of spring, but it also illuminates another sad fact: my windows are as filthy as sin.

Mary Rea | Gardening catalogs are sprouting

Each year about this time an avalanche of gardening catalogs cascades into my mailbox. I avidly pour through them, folding back page corners and circling items to order. In Mazama, where the temperature can stay below freezing for weeks on end, seed catalogs are a promise of good things to come.

Mary Rea | Long live leftovers!

Did you see that news item about the 16-year-old can of soup found in the back of a refrigerator at the Chicago EPA office? I can beat that. The other day, while sorting though a box we’ve been storing for a grown son, I came across a Milky Way candy bar with a sell-by date of 1985.

The valley of perpetual fundraising

In school district 350, which includes Mazama, Winthrop, Twisp and Carlton, there are about 1,700 households. There are also approximately 170 organizations in need of money. It’s always for a good cause, and everybody tries to pitch in, but how many spaghetti dinners and silent auctions can anyone attend? That’s what we ask each other.
