Life in Ojai

Monday, August 19th, 2013

We had dinner with some new friends who live in Ojai. I met Harry Mattull at the jury meeting for the new OVA gallery. Harry is a wonderful and prolific artist: https://www.harrymattull.com/index.php . His wife Christie prepared such a delicious meal of sweet potato fries, brussel sprouts and shrimp kabobs. We ate outside in the back yard and they set up this charming setting: mattull

Harry collects antiques and the dinnerware was beautiful green glass. It was pretty and pleasant outside.

Friday J noticed something flapping around in the pool.

We set it down, went to do some errands and when we came back it was gone. Hopefully it was just getting its legs and flew away. Baby birds are so vulnerable where we live, between cats and crows, hawks and blue birds many don’t make it but we did not see and signs of attack.

And here is a pic of the neighbor’s new llamas! They are funny creatures! While we were there one of them spit on the Emu for touching him! ha aren’t they cuties!

Rosebud the Emu

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Residing a short distance down the street from us, “Rosebud” haha isn’t she a lovely Emu! The owners had her since she was an Egg! Rosebud has a blue iridescent stripe on either side of her head and is very tall and likes to stand at that corner of the property to watch people all day long 😀 She scares me a leetle cuz she is snappy! I have also heard that there is a Peacock near by, I can not wait to get a glimpse of him!
