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!

It's good work if you can find it
This morning, Gregg and Gregorie went to the farmers market and Alex and I went to the U pick farm for the romas to can. We stopped for some breakfast in Woodland Hills and when we went to get on the 101 the ramp was closed. So we headed "west down Ventura Boulevard". We were stopped at a traffic light and Alex said, "Hey! There's Daddy's bike store." Yup, Wheel Works. Then she said, "Mom, this is not where your job is. This is where Daddy's job is. Your job is over there," as she pointed towards Calabasas. "Yes, my job is over there. What does Daddy do at his job?" "He bikes." "Oh, what does Mama do at her job?" "She works. Daddy bikes and Mama works." hmmmmm.....
