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!

I can't hear you!

Tonight we were all in the hot tub. The girls were swimming/splashing and Gregg and I were talking. He was telling me about how he pruned the trees. We were fully attentive to them, holding them and helping them jump and swim as needed. They were playing and not really paying us much mind until Alex turned on the lights, and turned the lights to her favorite color.

M: Yes, Alex we see. We are talking. Please do not interrupt. If you need something, please say, "Excuse me..."
A: Okay, okay. LOOOOOOOOOK!
G1: Alex, we see, we're talking. Are you being rude and impatient?
M: Yes, we see the aqua. It's pretty, but please don't be so demanding.
A: Okay, okay!
G2: HEY EVERYBODY! Everybody, TALK!!!!!

I looked up, with a WTF look on my face, and there she was, leaning back against the edge, fingers planted squarely in her ears, humming. And smiling.

Um, now, people do that. To be funny. Put there fingers in their ears and say, "lalalalalala" or whatever. WE don't. She has never seen this act. Where did she come from?????
