character!

The best index to a person’s character is:a) how he treats people who can’t do him any good, andb) how he treats people who can’t fight back. Abigail van Buren, Dear Abby Haven’t had much heart for writing this week. Our precious friend Sallie has gone home to be with her Jesus. We miss her!…

foggy donuts

Foggy early…with highs in the 60s! Compared to 100° this is heaven. Too cold and damp for tramping the beach. So, off to the donut shop. Coffee and donuts are…coffee and donuts, except at Dolly’s Donuts in Morro Bay. Here coffee and donuts are an experience!  One that will take up most of a foggy…

serenity by the sea

The serenity of a day spent by the sea dictates our activities.  If it is fair and fine we’ll clamber down to the beach at low tide and walk a long way up the coast, gathering  treasure as we go. A summer squall can blow in as quickly as the tides change and the wisps…

Oh summer!  It’s so-o-o-o hot here in The Valley. In Summer we long to be near the restless sea. So we’re on our way to the coast! Albert Einstein once said, “Logic will get you from A to B.

gardenias spell romance

Some say romance is old-fashioned. I say it’s timeless. It’s beauty has sustained it. It’s style still applies. The world outside my home may be sleek and new, but inside my fence there must the poetry of the birds and the bees, the comfort of shade on a hot summer’s afternoon, and the fragrance of gardenias! Wandering around…

on the right track

I’m hoping that one of these days, I’ll hear God’s voice again saying that I’m doing a good thing and I’m on the right track. I’ve been there!  Have you? Matter of fact, I was there. Hoping to hear God’s voice telling me again, one more time, I was on the right track from the…

new phalaenopsis

Sometimes the things you wish for just fall perfectly into place.   Last month I wrote a memorial to my lost collection of phalaenopsis that succumbed to an infection of mealy bugs last winter. Earlier this week, while walking through the local home improvement store, we found this beauty!  We brought her home and added her to…
