Summertime Fun

The Magic Onions Blog

Today is the summer solstice, 2016. The longest day of the year. It is HOT here in Southern California today. VERY hot! It’s not quite noon yet and the temps are already 97 °F. My phone says that it will get well past 100°F today. This kind of heat is not my favorite. Today is […]

Christmas Kitten

We had a wonderful Christmas at The Sunny House. The highlight was the arrival of a new member of our family. He is Teddy’s first animal.

Corners of our Home

The Magic Onions :

We moved into our beautiful home almost two years ago. Did you know that my Good Man built it? With his own two hands, every piece of wood, every door, every window. It was a labor of love. He worked on it for two years, after work late into the night… and on weekends, every […]
