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!

Chalk art

I love chalk. I love when the girls draw with it on the patio. I was thrilled yesterday when Alex said, "Look Gregorie, I drew a house for you!" [click on the pic - it's better bigger -- multistory, door and windows on the first floor!]

Alas, what Alex really likes to do with chalk is make a "formula" (chemist in the making???). So, after she drew the house, she got the hose and dissolved a bunch of chalk in water. And then put her hands in it and made prints.

And then walked in it.

The house is nice, but I'm partial to the prints!
