I managed to get through a week without playing computer solitaire. Yay, me! I had to fight the urge far too many times, but maybe it will get easier. My next step to reclaiming my life and being more productive is to limit my time on-line. This will be a far bigger challenge since the Internet is my main method of communication. And I did do a little bit of tidying—I recycled a few ancient papers.
And now, as promised, some more pictures from our San Francisco trip. I’m writing this on Windows Live Writer, which I haven’t used for a while and never mastered, so we’ll see how it goes.
Anyway, San Francisco is a wonderful, walkable city (assuming you’re part mountain goat). It’s a little like Washington, D.C., that way—except minus the mountain goat bit. And because of all the “hills” and man-made vantage points like the Coit Tower, there are lots of places to take in the view. Here’s a shot of the skyline, I think from the Coit Tower:
And a view from the bay side:
For a more close up “experience” of the hills—Mr. M. took this shot while we were riding on a cable car, though I’m not sure you really get the vertical “feel”:
Perhaps this helps:
This was taken at the bottom of the famously crooked Lombard Street.
Suffice it to say, we got plenty of exercise, even just walking the few blocks to one of the local Starbucks!
