~Holiday Time and Simple & Sweet Fridays #249~

I love decorating for the holidays.
We'll have all the kids home for Christmas.
We'll have a full house, but I'll enjoy every minute!!
Here's some photos of our decorations this year.








I wanted to share with you photos of our winter garden too.
In San Diego,
 you can grow pretty much anything you love.





~Happy Holidays~

~New Garden Farm Table & Simple & Sweet Fridays #248~



I wanted to share with you photos of a 
new garden farm table we built.
This is the area of the new table.
We were fortunate to get some fir barn wood from our friends, Kim and David.  David brought the wood out west he obtained from a barn in Middletown Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.  The beam and barn pieces were quite old with aged square nails in the boards.
We started designing the base and configuration for the tabletop.
We cut the 14 foot beam to make the legs and cross piece and make a rail frame to support the tabletop.
The base was 80 inches long and the tabletop pieces 48 to 54 inches so we used oak dowels to secure the six sections to make the tabletop strong and level.
After joining the base and sections we sanded the tabletop before applying a transparent water sealer.  Here are some shots of the finished farm table.






We will definitely enjoy the new table for the holidays!
Here is some photos of our Thanksgiving feast.
We made fish bouillabaisse and crab cakes.
We also made individual
 beef wellingtons, mashed potatoes and butternut squash.
A wonderful family Thanksgiving!

~Shell Beach-Tide Pools in La Jolla~


I wanted to share with you a family trip we took to Shell Beach in La Jolla, California.
It was such a beautiful day.
Birds enjoying the sun!

A beautiful beach to see if you're ever in San Diego!
