On this last day of the year, the decade; I thought a nice long hike would be a great way to finish out the year. Aside from 2 surgeries this year and the minor aches and pains of growing older; it has been a good year. I find myself very blessed with family, friends and health.

So here's to a New Year, the second decade of the 21st century and to a long and happy life! May you all be blessed this coming year!

Hiking N.Etiwanda Preserve - 15

Sunday, December 27, 2009 at 5:59 PM

Yesterday instead of hitting all the 'after Christmas sales,' two of my children joined me for a short hike at the North Etiwanda Preserve in Rancho Cucumonga, Ca. It was a very easy hike thanks to the running I've been doing lately.

I was glad I took along my new moleskine as this little flower makes for a great start to a new sketchbook. I have neglected my painting and sketching since I began seriously running a couple of months ago. I really need to find room for both loves.

Yesterday I treated my friends Diane and Dawn to a day at the Huntington Library and Gardens. I made reservations for High Tea to end our day. This was my Christmas gift to my good friends.
We paused during our wandering to enjoy the Zen Garden and sketch the Ginkgo trees.
