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!

Just one minute!

This is Greggie's current catch phrase. It is always said with her arm extended straight in front of her and her hand held out like a traffic cop yelling, "Stop!"

If she wants to nurse: Please, Mom. Just one minute. It's okay. Just one minute.

If she has my lipgloss and is running across the house: Just a little bit. Just one minute. I'll put it back. Just a little bit. Just one minute.

If she is jumping on the bed: Just one minute. I'll be careful. Just one minute.

That is just too cute!

Ariel wrote and composed an original song today. It goes:

Mommy's drivin' me nuts!
Mommy's drivin' me nuts!
Mommy's drivin' YOU nuts!

Marlyn, that is hilarious! "Just one minute!" I particularly love the one about nursing, "Just one minute, Mama." LOL
