A little piece of paradise in Cottonwood

Rod & I spent a tranquil & peaceful day & evening at the Inn at St. Gertrude's Monastery.   This order of Benedictine nun's operate a bed and breakfast that offers fascinating history, hiking opportunities or just rejuvinating solace from the busyness of our everyday lives.  I would highly recommend it!

The monastary is located in Cottonwood, ID (about an hour south of Lewiston).  For more information, see their website at www.InnatStGertrude.com

New Friends Searching for Coffee....all the way from Seattle!

I am always pleasantly surprised to see how many brave souls are out there in such of a decent cup of coffee.  I, of course, am always glad to oblige!

Passing Through....

Its amazing how many people stumble across the 'crossroads to the Northern Palouse".  This young couple had just spent the night camping at Heyburn State Park in Idaho and were on their way home to Seattle!  Happy trails.
You never know who you will meet over a cup of coffee!

Friends, Food and Beer

What a great way to spend a Palouse afternoon, Saturday, August 16th.  On Sacred Grounds was filled with 21 guests this afternoon.  We offered a special Palouse Picnic menu:  German Sausage with home-made sauerkraut, apple crisp a la mode and Zythum beer (a wheat beer and dark ale) and a special visit by local artist Ken Posselt of Saint Maries, ID.

Fun was had by all!

Crossroads of the Northern Palouse

Anna, Anna & Mike (and Higgins) on leash are on a trek across the USA.  Starting in Los Angeles six months ago, they are heading to the East Coast in the next year to year and a half.  

Tip your hat off to these hardy adventurers!   Next stop, Idaho!

Saturday Fun at Palouse Cafe

The house was packed this Saturday with a lot of new visitors and friends stopping by for an custom omelette and buttermilk pancake.  We even had some high-flying guests visit! Newcomers are always made to feel welcome and part of the On Sacred Grounds Family.  It's like eating a delicious breakfast at home; however,  you don't have to do the dishes!

 Starting on Saturday, August 9th and continuing to the fall, On Sacred Grounds will be hosting a Farmers' market on Saturday morning from 9 AM till Noon.  The first two vendors will be CasaCano Farms (Madyson and Jorge).  Their farm is located on South Windmill Drive off the Palouse Highway. You can't get more local than that!  Tom Weber will also be around with his fresh, local, organic chickens.  He raises them in a cute little farm next to Hangman Creek!  Becky and Lon Jasper have left some wonderful pre-packaged feta and chevre cheese.  They range in price from $6 to $7.50 a block.  They go great with a salad or on a cracker!
 Don't forget the Thursday Exchange Luncheon!   Elaine's Home-made Macaroni and Cheese is on the menu.  Deputy size is $3.99.  Sheriff portion is only $6.99.  Fresh, deluxe salad will be also available for $3.99.   We serve it hot beginning at 11:30 AM!  See ya there!

Guess who dropped by for a cup of coffee!

The Christian Crusaders were returning from a trip celebrating the organization's 35th anniversary in Republic, WA.  They were passing through and could resist a good cup of coffee!

Also passing through, Kevin and Chandler, son and grandson of Doug & Joyce.  Happy trails to one and all.
