Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

Over the past several weeks there have been helicopters ferrying workers and equipment overhead as they work on the electrical transmission towers.

It is amazing to see these workers dangling from cables beneath the helicopters as they are transported back and forth and climbing about these transmission towers as they work. Incredible!

I saw yet another snake - king snake this time. What a beauty. (I am not being facetious.)

As long as I see the snakes with plenty of room between me and them, giving me time to respond appropriately, I am fine. Will continue to be particularly careful while hiking this week. It is going to be a hot one!

Definitely that time of year...I had another encounter with a snake today. This time a gopher snake...much less intimidating than the rattle snake.

Had an encounter with a rattle snake. A little too close for comfort. It was coiled and appeared ready to strike. Thankfully, I was able to stop in time and back away.

I saw a Great Horned Owl and an owlet this afternoon. Unfortunately, their nest was lost with the winds over the past couple of days. The two owlets have survived and are still being fed by the adult. Hopefully, they will survive. It is very windy and rains are expected over the next several days.

Today was such a lovely day for a hike. The wind helped clear the air and we had wonderful views from the ridges.

Found a tunnel that goes under a street that let's out near a lake. Never knew it existed before. Turned left instead right missed entrance to lake. BTW it is Balboa Lake in Encino, for my Valley peeps. Ended up walking 50 minutes!!!

Spring is most definitely in the air in our area...earlier this week I crossed paths with a snake and am seeing many bees and butterflies out and about. Last weekend I saw a white breasted nuthatch feeding young. emoticon

Morning, just got back from my walk it's a beautiful day out there. I saw a little brown animal about the size of a rabbit dash into a hole under a tree, I wasn't sure what it was but it was another sign that spring is here. Some one told me that if I changed the number of an emoticon I might get a hidden one, wonder what I will get. emoticon number changed to 112

Yesterday I walked along Main Street in Pleasanton while waiting to meet some friends for dinner. I'd never been there before. It's a really vibrant little downtown strip full of eateries and local shops. Seeing individually owned small businesses was a nice change from the chain stores so many towns have now.

Yes, HEALTHYLADY12, the police caught the San Jose arsonist. He had a history of setting similar fires and shouldn't have been out of jail. You're right--what a truly a horrible thing to do to someone's home.

Yesterday afternoon, my boyfriend, a couple of friends, and I went for a four-mile hike in the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve in King's Mountain. What struck me from our trek along the North Ridge Trail was how clear-cut the this landscape had been back when parts of the Bay Area were still logging country. The relatively new growth of pine covering the hills now provides a testament to how resilient nature can be.

Yesterday, I had a meeting on the Stanford University campus. I had to park quite a distance from my destination, so I got in a good number of steps. That campus is HUGE and seems so shiny and new compared to my alma mater back east. But there was a vibrancy among the mix of modern and Spanish-style buildings. I was inspired by the young students to pick up my pace!

Yesterday, I joined a friend on a walk around her downtown San Jose neighborhood. There's a serial arsonist on the loose at the moment, so we saw two burned-out houses among the beautiful old Craftsman bungalows and stone-faced mansions. It was a shame to see history having gone up in flames. Luckily, no one has been hurt in the fires...yet. Hoping the authorities catch the perpetrator very soon!
