First Harvest

Experienced vegetable gardeners may laugh at this, but I’m so proud harvesting my first zucchini and zucchini flowers this morning that I’m posting about it to celebrate! My oldest daughter, Angelika, gave me a few seeds that I planted May 20 in a small planter area in my back yard, and now I have fresh […]

Avocado and Zucchini Update

My Garden Here and There

I took these pictures while on a morning walk ’round my garden yesterday.

Yesterday I did some spring cleaning on my large front porch… sweeping off the […]

I decided to take a walk before it really started to come down, and then wandered through my yard. I live in a mobile home in a senior community (55+) with […]

View Out My Bedroom Window, Two Ways

I thought I’d share the view, two ways, from my bedroom window. Pictures were taken with my iPhone.  My small, wonderful home that I named Hastings Cottage and decorated in a rustic, beach-shack style, brings me joy each day. I feel so fortunate to live here. Note, the canvas drapes on the right block the […]

At Home

Since I haven’t been out and about too much here lately due to several projects I’ve been working on, I thought I’d share a few random pictures taken at home. The adorable black doggie squishing down the top of my couch is my grandpup, Kansas, belonging to my son and his husband. He was over […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
