One of those magical moments in the neighborhood... the morning clouds opened, the sun came out, the birds began to sing, and in a moment the church bells started to ring... yes! Be well... Tj.

You gotta love youth... the courage or maybe it is just the opposite. There are some kids that live down on the corner. Now, I call them kids, they are probably my children's age or around that. So, in their mid to late 20's. They brought home a truck load of snow today, covered their stairs with it, and I think were snowboarding down the stairs... too funny! I just hope they don't break their necks!! Be safe guys!!! Tj.

Wow! Quite a storm... the wind was gusting up to 50-60 MPH? I thought for sure one of the big trees on our street would be blown over... but we awoke this morning and they are all standing! At least on our street. I hope the rest of the neighborhood was as lucky! Be well... stay dry and warm. Tj.

Watching all that is going on in Japan, makes me think about our little neighborhood. How much I enjoy it here, and how terrible it must be to lose it. My heart and thoughts are with Japan. May peace find its way to you.

Wild Turkeys? Driving down the street today about a half a block away I saw some very large birds and thought what the heck are those? A closer look they were a pair of wild turkeys! I don't think I have seen turkeys in the neighborhood before! They looked very much like these guys but were very skinny. Didn't look like a Thanksgiving Turkey for sure! Be well... Tj

The Bed and Breakfast around the corner has this beautiful tulip tree. It is currently in full bloom and after the rain yesterday the ground looks like it is covered in pretty pink snow!

We are getting a new traffic light in the neighborhood. The corner of 6th and W. And it can't come too soon, new pile of auto glass all over the ground. That is a bad corner at certain times of day, when rush hour traffic is whizzing by... and on Sundays when the farmers market is on. But the lights are up and waiting for the electricity... and probably an inspection. Soon!

Not exactly my neighborhood but I had to post this... in Rancho Cordova CA which is about 8 miles from home, a tornado touched down! We don't get tornado's here! Photo courtesy of the national weather service. It was quite a storm but a tornado?? WOW!

The camellias in the little church around the corner and in my yard are in full bloom and beautiful!

It was a beautiful day today, the park was filled with people and the playground was alive with happy kids! What a wonderful sound. Happy laughing children! Be well...

Sunday mornings I am often awakened by the sound of the church bells singing beautiful songs. Today only a slight difference, the hawk was singing too! Tj.

My original intent of this blog was to portray a piece of everyday life in my little corner of the world. I failed at that... I think because I tried to hard, to find different interesting things to post. I wanted grand things, and overlooked the tiny miracles that make up every day. So, back to the drawing board! Today, February 19, 2011... the first day of a new daily small details of this wonderful neighborhood I call home. Here today the sky is mostly cloudy, the trees are bare, the neighborhood is quiet. Snow levels are really low so it's cold! I see a Scrub Jay out my window. Be well... Tj.

In the middle of the City of Sacramento, we have so many critters!  The night varmints are not on my good list.  My dogs have been skunked ...
