Much on Monday

Last month, I came home to find this beautiful surprise gift for me on my front porch; a bread basket filled with two Lavender bushes and a Cineraria flowering perennial. I have kept them watered and just now had time to plant them.

Isn't the color beautiful? It is a "perk me up" color!

Rob, Ness and Diandra talking via skype. I love it! I wish we did this when he was in Nebraska. Do you talk via skype? We are a little behind on what technology can do.

The sky and sun rising last week taken with my cell phone.

I noticed on two different mornings there were lines like these seen across the sky. One morning, I could actually see in the distance towards the Sierra Mountains, something traveling with the line trailing behind. Can anyone explain what I seen?

Rob made this for me one afternoon with his new juice blender. It was yummO! This recipe makes a pitcher size amount and can be used the next day. So good for you!

1 bag of spinach
1 mango
handful of baby carrots
3 oranges
2 bananas

*Just a note ~ Today is World Water Day! What is your Water Footprint?

My husband Charlie is now installing a hot water recirculation system. He installed one in our home and seen what a difference it has made. Charlie felt it was important enough to put an article in our town newspaper to inform people. The system goes under bathroom or kitchen sinks and works for showers. He feels people are wasting gallons of water while waiting for hot water at a remote location in their house. Your not only wasting precious water, you're also wasting money if you are on a water meter. Last week, we came home to our answering machine blinking with message thanking Charlie for information on such a important matter; for making everyone aware. Please share how you are making a difference... I would love to know!


  1. Wow a little bit of everything. That green drink looked good so I'll take your word that it did taste good. The lines look like they were made by airplanes. Either that or the angels wanted to play tic tac toe.
