It was a plant day…

I love chives, they are so yummy. Fun to grow too.


Today was a plant day! I bought 8 succulents and a lavender plant! I was gifted a raspberry plant, some tomato plants and an oregano plant. Thank you Michael! Can’t wait to get them in the ground.

Still looking for a Wintergreen Plant. I know there is one out there with my name on it.  My raspberry plants came back up from last year, with volunteers. I may actually get some if the deer or chicken don’t get them first. I’m still training my chickens to stay out. Are chickens even trainable?


Happy New Year…


Posted by Annie in Opinion, Twain Harte News on January 2, 2019

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.  We had a few people out shooting their guns, some people complained. I don’t think anyone got hurt.  We have a strange mix of people up here: you have ultra-liberals, who I don’t understand, but I’m trying, and we have just as many ultra-conservative and not much in between.

Regardless of your political disposition, we need to listen to each other and try to hear what the other side is saying. Be prepared to change your mind, if warranted.  I have a friend I like to spar with.  His thinking is so totally opposite mine, but I find we have a great deal in common. It’s not easy, but I’ve learned to smile and nod.  

We live in a small community, so lets keep it small and personal.  I like that my mailman knows who I am.  I’m more than a house number. 

I leave you with something to think about…

Twain Harte “Snow” and “Ice”


Posted by Annie in Activities, Family Fun, Field Trip Idea on March 4, 2018

It appears that I haven’t posted for a complete year in Twain Harte Times.  For that I apologize, I’ve been spending most of my time on Facebook. That will not longer be the case.

The Fall is my favorite time of year, with Winter a close second.  I really hate Summer, I’m just not able to handle those hot temperatures any more and it gets hotter every year here in Twain Harte.  I watch the temperature religiously checking in probably 50 times a day.

I used to love the snow, I’d get up at 4 or 5 a.m. just to take pictures of the snow before anyone soiled it with footprints or tire tracks some days.  Oh, how I loved to traipse around in the snow. It was exhilarating.  Now, I just get angry and try not to go out in it at all.
