Stones for Stepping
My sister Janine and I made "mud pies" today -- three, to be exact. The first two were small ones using seashells which our nephew and niece found at Coronado beach. The third will become a centerpiece in a walkway of my sister's garden. "What do you think of this?" "I like it." "How about this?" "It's okay, but try it like this." "Ooh, yeah, I like that better." It was fun to collaborate on making stuff, just like when we were little. How fun for me that she's one of my best friends.
My almost-brother-in-law furnishes his and Janine's house with flowers from his family's florist and greenhouse business. Their well-known El Camino Real establishment has been serving many of what were once San Francisco's "country homes" since 1933. Now I think they serve just about everyone. I love to think about all the creativity going on in their workshops.
