TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Some classic books are so famous that you think you know them even if you haven’t read them: Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, To Kill a Mockingbird, Oliver Twist…. Some I’ve read and some I haven’t, though all are on my shelves. Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl was one of those […]

Winter Snow

Winter Snow

  We’re grateful to Dave Tushla for allowing us to share more of his photos of Yosemite. We thought visions of snow would be perfect for this holiday season, even if we’re celebrating it in seventy degree weather. Location: Yosemite National Park Date: Early December 2015 Type: Black & White, no filters or Photoshop   […]

Merry Merry!

Merry Merry!

    To spread the visual merriment of the holiday season, here are some scenes we saw around town…                       A friend of ours who is Catholic laments the lack of crèche displayed nowadays. We found a couple…       The above mini-crèche with […]

Chunky Clam Chowder

Chunky Clam Chowder

Clam chowder has always been a favorite of mine. Even as a child when I ate around the clams and only ate the potatoes—it was still my second favorite soup (after my grandmothers cream of asparagus). This clam chowder has a lot going on—I like to add a bunch of vegetables and bacon to add […]

4 Friday Photos

4 Friday Photos

Kate Carvellas came to our attention once again when she posted “4 Friday Photos.” We then perused more of her “days” and found more images we wished to share, and we’re grateful for Kate’s permission to do so. And, if you enjoy the gift of giving art for the holidays, Kate’s having a sale of […]

Our Perfect Gift: A Book

Our Perfect Gift: A Book

We dream of a bottomless gift card to Vroman’s, endless armfuls of books hauled from the many Little Free Libraries around (only to be replaced or shared again, of course), a 2-week vacation where we’re grounded, directed to sit and read and only read (it must be a command in order to prevent the ever-looming […]

Have You Seen? Decorating Rose Parade Floats

Have You Seen? Decorating Rose Parade Floats

There are thousands upon thousands of roses, daisies, carnations, marigolds, seeds, bark, grasses, and even fruits and vegetables. Thousands upon thousands of organic materials that must be placed and attached by hand to create the magnificent floats for the Tournament of Roses Parade. Come see for yourself as volunteers head into the final days and […]

Seed Bakery

Seed Bakery

It all started with Joseph who was born in a barn. Next to a wheat field. Who grew up to mill whole grains, Ferment, And bake bread.   Though inexpertly poetic, the above intro is not entirely true¹, but it’s humorous, and we like funny. And we like good, lovingly made homemade bread. We actually […]

A Zorthian Winter Solstice

A Zorthian Winter Solstice

Apparently, we have Winter Solstice on the brain as this is the third article in this week’s edition of Hometown Pasadena in which we mention this “shortest day of light.” Christina Sirgun Powers of Yoga for Balance in Altadena has been teaching kundalini yoga for twelve years and on December 19, she’ll be up at […]
