weekend to do


can you tell this horse has become the center of our world? we are so in love. and love everything he is giving back. don't get me wrong - horse ownership is a huge commitment of time, and money. but I truly believe that it is worth every minute and every penny. what we are all learning is worth the sacrifices we have had to make. he is such a gift.

but meanwhile, things do have to get done!

around the house
tape up cement board in bathroom
finish planting out garden beds.

plant seeds (nasturtiums & sunflower) at the barn :)

william krisel a.i.a.


there's a fabulous new book out on the architect of our home. (wonderful for any mcm lover - find it here.) it focuses on his work in palm springs, but also includes some glimpses of our neighborhood, including his own home on jumilla - as well as that of our dear friend and neighbor, Louise, (below) who is an original owner. (and an institution in her own right!)


we're looking forward to an event in our neighborhood in June celebrating Krisel. stay tuned!...

days of the horse

we've spent every day of spring break with Phantom. it is an absolute joy watching the girls get to know him, and him get to know us. we've done ground lessons: join-up, rope work and ground manners, and the girls have ridden him every day, dressage or trail.

he's a horse with a big personality. and somehow perfectly fits with the girls' personalities - as different as they are. i love watching them interact, individually, and together. their team effort in making this work has been noticed. i am very proud of them.


a month in, i couldn't be happier with our decision.
