A BLAST FROM THE PAST ....

....the past few weeks that is and technically that is the past.What I have for you are pictures, pictures and more pictures. Enjoy!

Remember to click on them to enlarge.

A few weeks ago Mark was doing some trimming in the front yard so I went out and took a few pictures. Love my ficus in the large crock that we got from Mark's grandmother years ago. Our Norfolk Pine is doing great but at some point it will be too large for where we have it. We do things like that all the time!


Some flowers in the backyard.

On a clear day you can see forever. We do love our view. My new love is Naked Juice. My Eiffel Tower charm from the Art Fair in Mammoth Lakes this summer. Dylan trimming the weeds on the other side of the fence. They bug us! Dylan at his birthday dinner. Some of my favorite berries. My most favorite is blackberries. A fire in the distance that we could see a few weeks ago.

A storm that came up really fast but never amounted to anything at all!

My little tomato plant. I think I got about 8 tomatoes from it. They are a small tomato but about 3 times bigger then a cherry tomato. I don't remember the name of them.

Mark and I went to La Jolla on the 29th of September for the day. The sun never came out but we had a nice time walking around. We use to live near there and wanted to visit one of our favorite restaurant. Of course it's all about the deep dish pizza! I was so excited to eat that I didn't even take a picture :(

We also enjoy walking around the coves and seeing the seals. The three pictures on the right is a seal who was having a lot of fun rolling around on a rock out in the ocean.

Some views of the ocean.

I was trying to get the water as it exploded against the rocks.

This was on Friday September 30th. The skies looked like they were on fire. See the rain over the mountains?


I will be in Las Vegas on Monday and Tuesday so I won't be around to visit with you.

I will see you for Wednesday Hodgepodge.



FYI: Monday night on LIFETIME is a story called FIVE that sounds like it will be very interesting to watch. It is an anthology of five short films exploring the impact of breast cancer on the lives of women diagnosed and their loved ones. Directors include Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys. Set your DVR!

Looks like you are having way too much fun. Such beautiful pictures you took. Have fun in Vegas.

EmptyNester said...

So you're the other person in the world who loves blackberries besides my brother. LOL

DoodleBug LOVES Naked Juice! We never see seals when we go to the beach- just birds and people. We don't have those lovely rocks either except on one side of Sullivan's Island where I tried to do the same thing you did with the water crashing into them! All of your pictures are amazing!

Have fun in Las Vegas!

Sonya said...

Everything looks beautiful! Have you shown any pictures of your house before? It looks so pretty!

I love the photos. While the SE Atlantic coast is still my most favoritest, your pictures of the waves crashing on the rocks is one of things that I love about the Pacific coast - that we don't get to see on the SE Atlantic coast.

I love blackberries, too ... and have made fans of them out of T#1 and T#2. High time to introduce them to T#3 and T#4! ;-)

Have fun in Las Vegas!

Ron and I have been blessed to scuba out from La Jolla Cove. We may be New Mexicans by location but we are San Diego lovers by heart. It is not okay if we don't make it out there for at least one trip a year. Thankfully, we have family so that is a perfect excuse. Moonlight Beach in Encinitas is another favorite.

Your pictures are delightful.

xinex said...

Beautiful pictures, Debby. Your garden and your view are lovely. The sunset picstures are breathtaking...Christine

Laura said...

Love your pictures. You need to tell me what kind of camera you're taking them with?? Did you take a class in photography ever??? I need to save my $$ and get a nice camera and take some classes. My friend has a blog and her pictures are amazing too. I just told her that she needs to make it into a Blurb book and sell it!! ;-)
Hugs-
