Everyone Loves Watermelon!

Everyone Loves Watermelon!

Summer is definitely here and so it’s watermelon season once again. While we are growing our own, this is one from the market. We were sitting on the porch enjoying cold slices of sweet and juicy watermelon and noticed the dogs were completely fixated on […]

A Thing or Two About Tiny Floor Tiles…

A Thing or Two About Tiny Floor Tiles…

After a successful backsplash tiling job, we were feeling good about starting the floors, not to mention we were VERY eager to get floors put in. So much so that I forgot to take pictures of the subfloor after we peeled off layers of crusty […]

Olallieberry

Olallieberry

This is the first time we are growing olallieberries. Really, it’s the first time in many years that I am able to enjoy this flavorful berry and a it’s bonus that they are growing in my yard. The first time I had a taste of olallieberry was in a sorbet that had such a fresh and unique flavor, a cross between blackberry and raspberry. Ever since, I have searched for it on dessert menus and at farmers markets.

Lately, I’ve been enjoying them as a topping on morning yogurt with granola and fresh off the vine. Here, we tried something different and muddled them with gin, a squeeze of lemon, sugar,  and topped off with a splash of soda water.

From this (above), to this (below)!

Perfectly refreshing for these warm summer days. Happy Friday!

Here’s our very first video, an experiment indeed! Hope you like these snipets of the interesting bits. I love it all, but the racing piglets and screaming goat are my fave. Happy Friday!

San Diego County Fair 2013

San Diego County Fair 2013

When I think of the County fair, I think of insane traffic, rides with questionable safety records and of course, the carnies that operate them. Fortunately, we were able to wake up early, which means getting to the fair at the indecent hour of ten […]

Thrifting in Hillcrest

Today we have a gust post written by K: By Friday I had already claimed Saturday as my own. There would be a morning of fine locally roasted coffee from Coffee & Tea Collective followed by a quick tour of the local Thrift Shops. As […]
