“A single photo. No words. Capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.”
eloise: Run free wild child! The Santa Ana winds make you giggle and a day out with your grandparents is always a day full of joy for you!
Another lazy weekend…
Dinosaurs showing up in unexpected corners.
Helping to cook and clean in the kitchen.
Lunch and a walk downtown with the Grandparents.
And a short stint checking out rocks down by the beach.
A quick, lazy, windy and warmish January weekend. (Oh and I finally finished this and I got to start this today. Already enjoying it)!
Happy Weekend to you friends!

It was a very green weekend. Happy St. Patricks’ day to you! The fog rolled in and stayed thick until sunday afternoon. It seemed winter was upon us again. Ellie and Jeff seemed to be feeling better so we did our usual farmers market on saturday but stayed for the annual St. Patricks’ Day Parade downtown. Let me tell you, Ventura has some interesting parade people. It was fun and Ellie seemed to enjoy the marching bands and the chaos of it all. Jeff’s parents joined us and we invited them back to our place for potato and leek soup and hot cocoa. It was chilly that day! Ellie has been trying all sorts of new foods, peas, pear, squash, sweet potato. She surprisingly seems to enjoy the veggies over the fruits. I’ve been trying to add in solids regularly now these days, but it’s harder than I thought trying to make baby food and determining when to feed her etc. We’re working out the kinks as we go.
Sunday we celebrated my Mom’s birthday (it’s the 19th but she has to work). We drove up and over the grade, through the pea soup fog and into a much sunnier and warmer area of Southern California. We spent the day gardening and relaxing and enjoying each other’s company. I made a lemon pound cake for my Mom, that I couldn’t get out of the pan. We dug into it with spoons. Very Good weekend. How was yours?

We took Jeff’s parents down to the beach one night last week hoping to find the Channel Islands information booth. They want to go hiking on one of the islands and needed more information. We found the lovely little information center with its own mini botanical garden and after some exploring of the center and gardens we decided to take a walk on the beach. It was a chilly evening and getting close to the baby witching hour, but that sunset was calling to us…
Thank you to Jeff and his parents for taking some of the pictures (the ones I’m in). It was such a nice walk. The sun going down and the waves and the winter, chilly air made it almost magical. And then as we were nearing the end of the walk, my sweet, sweet baby buried her head in my shoulder and snuggled in close. It was magical alright.
