We Called Them Foothills

I've always been impressed with people who climb mountains.  Like really impressed.  It is something I don't think I'll ever be able to do.  When I was young, I read a book about a woman who climbed Denali and was fascinated.  It takes a strength and endurance that many people do not have, including myself....

Celebrations and Improvements

With over 200 children and 4000 eggs, this year's Easter egg hunt at the neighboring park, Dos Picos, was crowned a success! Andy and I stuffed nearly 900 eggs ourselves (whew!) and helped with set up and crowd control for the community Easter celebration on Saturday.  Fearful that I would be forced in to wearing the...

We've been asking ourselves these questions since our front hydraulic leveling jack broke a couple months ago.  We still have not fixed it because we are parked on a mostly level cement...

Making a Life

How do you pick up one life and transport it to a new spot?  The short answer: you can't.  After coming back from my trip to MN, it hit me...everything has changed.  It seems obvious that going back (I want to say "going home") would make me a little homesick but I had no idea...

Biding Our Time

A brief update of the last couple of days: Still on the hunt for new jobs opportunities here in Ramona.  We are just looking for part time work to fill in the gaps. Great news!  We are finally set up to make soap again here and hope to be able to sell it at the... Continue Reading →

The Struggle Continues

We are driving down the foothills from beautiful Ramona towards the coast, checking out the amazing views we have come to deeply love, when some unfamiliar noises accompany our regular symphony of interesting noises on the Jeep.  These are new and these are scary.  We look to one another, hoping that perhaps the other person didn't...
