Mary Rea | Keeping an eye on deer

A lot of deer roam through our yard, which is just fine. It’s a chance to get up close and personal with nature. We watch bucks browse on the bushes out back, count points on their antlers and wonder which of the local females they’ve romanced.

Mary Rea | Family Easter tradition

Never, ever, have our boys believed in the Easter bunny. They grew up country kids and saw a lot of rabbits. There was no way such a small four-legged creature could carry around a large basket, let alone hide eggs. But they still liked to have an Easter egg hunt.

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.
