Tripping the Light ... Fantastic?

I stopped for a pause in a busy schedule today. Here's Colton Klein, making a two shot latté for me at Mountain Sage, in Groveland, CA. Colton and his wife Hillary bought the coffee bar and shop from Robb and Regina Hurst, owners of Mountain Sage Nursery and Garden.

It's a great place for locals and for visitors passing through on their way to Yosemite, with wifi, a visitor center, coffee and other beverages, locally made gifts and Yosemite Chamber of Commerce. Follow the links on the site for info on what else is available there.

A phone call woke me up this morning, and contrary to logic, it put me in good humor. I don't wake up a happy camper. My aches and pains and lassitude of yesterday had passed and I left here for a day of meetings with some measure of energy.

Soroptimist had a speaker on its international program in Sierra Leone, followed by a committee meeting for our upcoming Chinese Auction fundraiser.

This evening the Computer Users Group met. Have I mentioned that I love the computer club? Maybe you've at least noticed that reading between the lines. The cable Internet provider for my little town, Sierra Nevada Communications, described progress on their Internet service -- ready for almost all comers now -- as well as other communications services. A lot of people out there still live on dialup. Satellite has made some inroads but it's expensive and goes out when there's snow in your dish. But broadband is slowly spreading through our community. Have you tried loading modern websites on dialup lately? Not a good experience.

I forgot to walk per my new resolution today but did about 3200 steps going between meetings, etc.

Moments ago I tripped over my backpack and sent a bowl of cereal dregs and milk flying across the kitchen, skinning a knee and tweaking my back. I hope this isn't a cause for delay of my fitness regimen!

See you tomorrow.
