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!

APAD -- And a year ago today

I didn't get the camera out today -- busy with bread baking, stock making, stew cooking, garden planning, chicken coop designing, and girl-get-away scheming.   So, today's picture is from a Facebook theme I've been doing -- a year ago today.  We were on the Rio San Juan, Nicaragua.  This was a magical place.  Funny, when I was planning the trip, this place called to me but also gave me nightmares -- our balcony DID overhang the very fast moving river!  I lectured and lectured the girls and the only things that ever fell in were some Crocs -- one from each girl!  Gregg saved them both, in a kayak.
