About Time

Happy Veteran's Day! To all who served, or who kept the home fires burning, we thank you.

Well! It has been quite a while since I have posted. For those of you who are new, welcome. This used to be a daily blog but now it is a "whenever" blog...much easier to read and there are lots of great posts for you to rummage through. Don't miss our Index page and List of Recipes and Craft Ideas!

We celebrated the first fire in the fireplace of the season yesterday. Always something to celebrate because it means Fall is officially here to stay.

Still have tomatoes on the vine and hope they quickly ripen before the first frost. It seems that the first frost always sneaks up on us so keeping a good watch on the remaining tomatoes, green beans, pears and bell peppers that are still ripening.

Been chilly at night here in the High Desert and snowed in the local mountains this weekend. Of course, being typically California, it was also 75 degrees today and sunny. Chickens are taking advantage of the weather and are still laying strong.

We have been visited by a plethora of fauna wild bunnies have a few dens, a red tailed hawk (we could do without his visits), a family of wild quail ( sooo cute the babies trotting after Mama with Daddy proudly watching out), baby bats, alligator lizards and a HUGE roadrunner who loves our front fountain.

Hope where you are the weather is cooperating!

I enjoyed the pics of the home-grown produce and the fire. That awkward photo was one in a million!!
