wood...aloe...& a man's best friend (insta-style)

so...in all honestly it seems like the little bit of energy i found to blog in the last few years has quickly diverted to the instant gratification of instagram.  it is as easy as taking a photo, filtering it to enhance and publishing it for the world to see...or in my case 40 followers.

in an effort to catch up on my blogging...i am going to share some instagram moments at hillside as often as i can...it will hopefully keep me posting and the creative juices flowing.

this post consists of:
a photo of wood..from a fallen tree..one that came down on a windy night when i was at hillside alone.  i heard the cracking of the branches and i grabbed bmo and ran to the front door.  thinking for sure this was it...thank goodness the tree was a good 50 yards away, but sure did sound like the tree right above the property.
an old terracotta pot that has been painted several times..and the paint has chipped right off.  found at junk store in san diego several years ago. $1
and....man's best buddy..the Mo.

if you want to follow my semi-boring life on instagram you can find me at mrvelvick.

shocker.....i'm back

hi there long lost blogging friends!!  i know i know i know.....i honestly have not looked at brock street or any blogs since right before the holidays, i guess i needed a bit of a break.

hope this finds u all well.

i wanted to give u a little exterior progress report.  the chain link gate is gone....yahoo!!  we extended the stone wall too...and added some stones and of course more gravel.  the saying remains the same "slow & steady...more slow than steady".  progress is still progress....right?
