We moved around a lot when I was a child, but no matter where we happened to be living my mother would make sure to find a “Candy Cane Lane” to take us to during the holidays and you have to keep in mind that this was pre-internet let-me-look-it-up-on-Google days. Candy Cane Lane is what she called any street where the neighbors got together and
I sent my husband out into the backyard to take these photos because I’m stuck indoors with some kind of a sore throat and feeling pretty yucky. I hope you are feeling better than I am. Stay healthy!

We share a backyard with two other households. My husband is the one who created and tends to the garden and almost everything there was put there by him. This gnome was not put in the garden by my husband. The gnome just showed up one day much to my husband’s dismay. I like the gnome, my husband does not. I share the gnome with
This weekend I had the pleasure of watching my daughter in the world premier of the opera “Xochitl and the Flowers” at the Mission Cultural Center in San Francisco. The opera by Christopher Pratorius is based on the children’s book of the same title by Jorge Argueta. You should know that my daughter is not an opera singer nor is she in training to become one, but
A couple of weeks ago, we headed to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk for our last visit of the year. We went with our friends and had a blast like we always do.

We went to the 6th annual Discovery Day hosted at AT&T Park. The place was filled with over 150 interactive exhibits to help kids get exited about science hands on. It’s such a great event to help encourage a new generation to fall in love with science, technology, engineering and math. The best part is that admission is free, which means that children of all
Arata Farm, San Mateo’s oldest working pumpkin farm, is about an hour away from our home in San Francisco. The farm has been growing pumpkins since 1932. I was checking out their website and found out that it all came about because in the 1930s brothers John and Clarence Arata planted pumpkin seeds to feed their family’s hogs. Then one day someone driving along the
My 8-year-old daughter planted carrot seeds in our backyard all by herself while her father, who is a gardener, observed. In about 70 to 80 day, we’ll have homegrown carrots. I love that she knows she can grow her own food and has been doing it since she was young enough to walk. San Francisco, CA I showed you mine, now show me yours. ALSO READ: Half
This year on October 15-16 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival celebrates its 46th anniversary. This was our first year attending. Admission to the festival is free. We got there early because I have one of those husbands that HAS to get to everything early to avoid the crowds and leave before everyone else is trying to leave. I’m
Have you ever made masks out of plaster cloth? I did it for the first time this weekend and it was so easy. Plaster cloth is like gauze covered in plaster, just in case you don’t know what I’m talking about. My daughter’s class is getting ready for Day of the Dead and her teachers asked us to come by this weekend and help the
