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 all French to me

Last night as we were getting ready for bed, the girls were brushing their teeth.  The medicine cabinet was open and we had this conversation:

G: Mom, can I have some of your champagne?
M:  What?  What champagne,  honey?
G: Up there.  The champagne that's up there.
A:  I think she means your perfume, Mother.
M:  Oh, perfume, Greggie?
G:  Yeah, perfume champagne.  Can I have some, right here [pointing to the back of her neck].
M:  Okay, I guess. Which one do you want?

So Greggie picked the Burberry and Alex picked the Jil Sander #4 and then they each had to have some of the other.  And we all went to bed.  I got to fall asleep in haze of my past scents.  I think I'll stick with my essential oils from now on!  Wheeeeew!!!!
