We took a tiny trip north to the forest. It was a quiet weekend (except for Sage's cries echoing over the lake and through the woods). We made smores. We fished. We walked. We gathered firewood. We cooked by campfire (which was Kaya's favorite part). We kayaked Lake Valentine (which was Sage's favorite part hands down). We slept under the trees under the stars. We rested. We camped. We welcomed Autumn perfectly (and honestly we were not even aware at the time that that very night was the fall equinox).
I had not been to this particular spot in nearly 30 years and I have very special memories of going there with my mom as a child. Things looked much the same but completely different too. We visited nearby campsites as well, like a mini tour of the southern part of Kistachie National Forest. We are all looking forward to more short weekend adventures in Kistachie and experiencing little bits of our great state as a family.
that's our spot across the lake in the middle...can you see it?
can you see the struggle here... sheesh
Sage took this pic through the tent in the morning. I like it.
It's moments like this that make it all worthwhile, to watch him play with his 'tick' in the fire. Innocent, natural child's play in the forest.

It was October of 2007 and I took my new love to my old home to visit my dear friends. There is this majestic gorge at the end of a lovely coast road that was only blocks from where I used to live. After meandering through what sometimes seems like underground you come to the edge of the cliff, high above the Pacific Ocean. A lovely place to admire the sunset.
I miss this place and many people I left behind there.

Spring is easily my favorite season but the little introductions of crisp air, especially in the mornings, makes me happy to welcome Fall. Eager even. It is so refreshing to feel the air cooling off. Being that I spent many years on the sunny coast of southern California where pretty much everyday feels like this, these are my favorite kind of days! Inspiring, motivating and just plain lovely. Naturally.
My garden is growing over with the wonderful Cosmo. I seeded a few areas a couple years back and its popping up all over our backyard, making its own place. I love the wispy wild & free way about them and the bold orange of its blooms. The morning glory vine that I have never seeded or planted is volunteering itself and taking over too, smothering some of my chosen plantings. That I don't like so much! I honestly don't know much about plants and gardening, not more than what I like and love really. I enjoy following my intuition and doing what feels right. I like to take the seeds that have dried on the flowers center and spread it throughout the garden with anticipation of where it might grow-up. I revel in Sage's innocent play with worms or as he calls 'em snakes. Lately he is getting such sincere excitement with those crawlers, he lightens me up with a smile. Ahh playing & working with nature. Real joy.
