This is the story of our adventures -- every day and extraordinary; our dreams -- tiny and grand; our gardens -- ornamental and sustaining; this is the story of our journey.  We are a family of four living a mindful, simple life here in Los Angeles County.  We are green, conscious, and forward thinking.  We keep an eye on the past because some of the best things have already been done and bear repeating.  Walk and talk with us, have a glass of wine, taste a peach or a tomato, blow some bubbles and watch them drift up over the canyon ridge.  Enjoy!

What we eat

Today is farmers market day -- Gregg or I go to Santa Monica to pick up our CSA box (we have a subscription in produce that supports a local farm and gives us organic farm fresh goodies) and shop for extras at the market -- this week, walnuts and pecans, heirloom tomatoes, melons; always, eggs, cheese, butter, potatoes, oranges for juice, etc.

Anyway, every Saturday when the produce has been rinsed with the H2O2 and is drying to go in the frig, I look at it and it is so beautiful. So I take some pictures. Today I also started thinking about everything we eat and how it looks pretty even when it's not on the table. Here is what we eat:

That center picture with the bowls of fruit is so eye-catching!

Wow! Thanks. The light in that pic is from the skylight.
