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!

Recent Alex-isms

A:  I want some bread, Mom.
M: Okay, I'll cut you a slice.
A:  I want the trunk, Mom.  Not that side, the TRUNK!

(aka, the heel/crust/end)

The other day Alex asked if she could wear one of her new dresses that I bought for the cruise.  I want to keep them pristine so I told her, yes, as long as she stayed inside and didn't eat anything.  Soon after:

A:  Mom, I'm hungry.  I want something to eat.
M:  Take off the dress and I'll get you something.  What do you want?
A:  I want to keep the dress on, Mom. 
M:  You know that I don't want you to get it dirty.
A:  How about an apricot?  That's a good idea, Mom.  I need an apricot.
M:  An apricot???  What???
A:  I can put an apricot on and not get my dress dirty.  
M:  Oh, an apron.  Yes, yes, that is a good idea...
