Chuy Prius (2005-2017)

Chuy Prius (2005-2017)

Last Friday we donated our 2005 Prius to KPCC.  He was 12 years old and had 172, 172 miles when he quit working.  James and I miss him already; for all the memories we were able to make while we drove him.   Poem for a Prius: or I’ve Never Owned a Car Without a […]

The writing is in the shed

The writing is in the shed

Who knows where an idea starts?  Is it seeing a cool Tiny House in Portland?  A gorgeous mobile home in Carlsbad?  The playhouse at my Nina’s home in Highland Park?  Whatever the source, in January I found myself seriously looking into a shed that would become a writing shed. We ended up at SoCal Sheds […]

Indoor Stylin’

Indoor Stylin’

Over the past few months James and I have been scurrying around the house.  I think the wedding led us to some hardcore nesting at the house. January was spent looking at old videos of Casa Martinez and then cataloguing more than 150 episodes.  I was proud of the work that our team produced.  Many […]

I promised that I would write about the wedding.  It is always a challenge to write about things that our son Matthew does because he is, by nature, a very private person.  As it turns out his wife – not so much.  So I’ll try to write to the middle ground. First, it is true […]

Oh, what a memorable birthday day; no- weekend; no – week

Oh, what a memorable birthday day; no- weekend; no – week

I turned 64 this past Saturday.  Thanks to so many I had a chance to celebrate this fact for almost a week. Last Wednesday I gave myself permission and enjoyed a day at the beach with friend Kathee. James had oral surgery a while ago and was going to have stitches removed on Friday, so […]

Good Days, Busy Days, Lovely Days, Funny Days

I usually write about my vacations after they’ve take place rather than while they are happening for a couple of reasons.  The first being I’m often in some out of the way place where I can’t count on wi fi.  The second, well, I’m on vacation and I’m doing or not doing stuff.  The third, […]

Sí, Se Puede 2016

Sí, Se Puede 2016

Theoretically there are four seasons.  In Southern California there are those who argue that there are fewer.  Don’t know and don’t much feel like arguing today.  I do know that there three major sorts of seasons in my life.  They are the Seasons of Nature, the Seasons of Work, and the Seasons of Volunteering. Since […]
