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!

The sun shining

Today I canned 23 1/2 pints of strawberry-blackberry jam and three quarts of pickles. While I worked on that, the girls painted.

This is Alex's "masterpiece".  When she showed it to Gregorie, Gregorie said, "BEEEE UUUU tiful Poodle!  You did a really nice job on that!"  Okay, Miss Art Critic!  LOL
And here are Mama's oeuvres!
