Monday Morning Attitude

It’s Monday morning, my least favorite time of the week. Today’s Foto Fix reflects a fairly common theme among my co-workers. Weekend’s over, we start work far too early, and could use another few hours sleep. I took this photo Saturday at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park near Escondido, California. The tigers are brothers from […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

For this week’s photo challenge, Earth, I chose four of my silly selfies taken with my iPhone. They feature me at various stops in California. I’m certain most of us agree, we’re each charged with protecting our Earth, regardless the ignorant people in political power. We must work all the harder to protect the beauty we’re […]

Beautiful Day in the Park

The day before Easter, my family and I went to William R Mason Regional Park in Irvine for a BBQ. What a perfect day to hide Easter eggs, play games, grill hamburgers, eat salads, chips, fruit, cupcakes… completely and utterly wonderful! ~SueBee

Dowager Countess Quotes

(10  photos) Aside from the fabulous costumes on display at the Dressing Downton exibit at the Muzeo Museum in Anaheim, California, I was wildly entertained by printed cards featuring the Dowager Countess quotes. Brilliantly played by Dame Maggie Smith, the Dowager was a highlight of the Downton Abbey TV show. I gathered all my photos […]

Dressing Downton Exhibit at Muzeo

(5 photos) I visited the Downton Abbey costume exhibit at the Muzeo Museum in Anaheim this past Sunday with my son and his fiance. After watching the British TV series, and being taken away to another time, in part due to the costumes, I was very excited to see the exhibit. It didn’t disappoint, and I […]

Origin of Oranges

A recent visit to the Fullerton Arboretum brought air that was fragrant with orange blossoms. I stood under the trees and inhaled sweetness to my heart’s delight. Talk about real life aromatherapy, ahhhhh!! ~SueBee

Henry the Desert Tortoise

(6 photos) Weekend before last I explored the area near Modjeska Canyon and came upon a tiny nature center where I “met” Henry. Having had a tortoise when I was very young, and turtles having been my very favorite animal in those days, I was drawn to Henry. The space he called home was quite […]

Sunset at CDM

(2 photos) Yesterday, March 26 2017, my three kids, their partners and I met for a drink at a favorite place in Corona Del Mar to mark the one year anniversary since my mom, their grandma, passed away at the age of 98 (and a half). My mom was a special woman, we were all […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: It IS Easy Being Green

(5 photos) This week WordPress Photo Challenge, It IS Easy Being Green, was an easy one for me. I’d taken a drive last weekend through some back canyons here in Southern California, and was surrounded by green hills. All the rain this season turned us into a lush paradise. So, in Southern California, it IS easy […]

Modjeska, Off the Beaten Path

(14 photos) It’s often impossible when living and working in the concrete jungle of Southern California to imagine that rustic, rural places do still exist around us… and often within very short driving distances. This past Sunday, I took myself for a drive and a bit of exploring in the region south of where I […]

Turquoise Rowboat

Today’s Foto Fix was taken at Dana Point Harbor in Southern California, using my iPhone. The boat, as well as the matching posts, caught my eye as they’re painted in my favorite color. I took myself on a really nice Sunday afternoon drive, that included an inland canyon I’d never visited previously, followed by the harbor. […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Atop

My interpretation of this week’s Photo Challenge of the word Atop is of an artist, holding the water color painting I ended up purchasing, as he stood atop Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. My son’s fiance, Loren, and I had walked a great distance up a steep hill, and climbed many steps to reach this […]

Poppies at Fullerton Arboretum

The newspapers have reported here lately about the carpets of wild flowers in the desert due to our rains this year. Saturday, driving out toward the desert with my family for wine tasting in Temecula, we were stuck in traffic and dragging along for miles. Turns out, the hills along the freeway were covered with patches […]
