beneath my feet…

red berries missed by the birds?


winter is over, heat and humidity looms, as the live oak tree throws pollen to the wind and Baron suffers from his multitudinous allergies

I look down at the fallen leaves that crunch¬†under my¬†weight…SNAP!

my trip…

down memory lane

for a little while now I’ve felt totally disinclined to doodle, draw, paint, photograph or otherwise create anything…for myself or either of my two blogs

so I’ve decided to do exactly what I want to do,¬†which is…to spend the next month remembering Don

Don was my husband of almost 27 years, we’d known each other for almost 28 years

he died 22 October 2009 at 0726

age 84 years, 4 months

6 years, 11 months ago

I am not lonely, I am alone, I HATE it

losing a best friend has been more devastating than losing a husband

when this photo was taken I was approximately 1 year old

California Mandarins

“Nature’s perfect fruit”


they’re NON GMO Project VERIFIED


take it from me they really are cute


according to the accompanying information,

they’re E-Z Peel (they are)


Seedless (not entirely, there is an occasional seed)

While this post may appear blatantly commercial, that wasn’t my intent. ¬†I have a fruit salad for breakfast almost every morning, Cuties‚ĄĘ just happen to be one of the fruit¬†choices¬†I manage to incorporate into my¬†salads.¬† I used to use oranges (they have more than the occasional seed) and because I have a lot of expensive dental work in my mouth and because my eyesight is going down the toilet I check each citrusy segment with a flashlight (did I mention that my counter is dark and so is my kitchen) to be sure it is indeed SEEDLESS. ¬†One day while checking segments I started playing around with the flashlight and what the light looked like on a whole mandarin. ¬†The little triangle shape on the bottom intrigued me and as did the shadows that the¬†light made (all this segment checking and the FL batteries are rapidly running out of juice) so I snapped me a shot…
