Good Ole Everett

I recently moved back to my childhood home that I inherited from my mom in 1994.  It’s a bizarre thing to be back here, and really have it be mine, to do what I wish.  It’s essentially been a rental since early 1995 and I’ve only fixed things as needed.  It’s time for a refresher and to figure out what we really want it to be for us.  Our “to-do” and wish lists are long, but it’s very satisfying to know that we can do whatever we want.  Renting has its pros, but owning is a whole lot better.

Here are some photos from the move and the view.  It’s one of those rare locations that I’ve always felt I couldn’t get back if I let it go.  I’m so glad that I was able to maintain it over these many years.  It’s a treat to look out the windows.

As I continue to rediscover the town I once knew, I may start another blog about it.  We’ll see.  It is fun to see an old place with new eyes and an open mind.  Tonight I’ll be going to a presentation on Rain Gardens put on by the City of Everett and WSU Extension.  I cannot wait.  We have such dreams for what our yard could be.
