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!

Another Sierra Day

My fingertips are so sore from this:

So I'll be light on words and long on pictures!

Today was made frustrating by a refrigerator that didn't come,  a new stove that didn't work (unless you consider an oven that resembles the gates of hell working), and a kitchen design that fell flat.

I had planned on moving the frig from its original place, where the hanging baskets are now, to its current location and putting the DW where the frig was.  But even this old frig is way too large to go there.  And the new one coming (in August, grrr......) is much larger...  So, I think the frig has to go back where it was (after we finish tiling -- oh, my poor fingers), the DW alongside, the double sink to the corner, then counter, stove, counter on the other leg of the L.  It will work out.  Eventually.

So this afternoon I needed to relax, breath, get some fresh air and perspective.  So the girls and I took a stroll/hike around our property.  And I felt much better.

I envy your handiness! I have never tiled anything...let alone redone an entire kitchen!

Love all the pictures of the girls! You have some good looking kids! And their parasols are beautiful! I want to go to your cabin!
