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!

A dog and a cat

I thought the cat was outside. In the pouring rain. I called and called for him and he didn't come. I shut the door, saying, "Dumb ol' cat." I walked into the bedroom to look for the dog. It was dark but I could tell Stella wasn't on her bed. I saw her lying in the middle of the floor. "Dumb ol' dog," I thought. I flipped on the light and saw the cat, sound asleep on the dog's bed. "Hmm, smart ol' cat!" I corrected. Then I said, "Stella, it's YOUR bed, go get in it!" So she did.
