Winter Wine Walk @ Stone Griffin Gallery — The Aftermath

Downtown Campbell's Winter Wine Walk was last Wednesday, and we at Stone Griffin Gallery hosted Naumann Winery.

The next day I noticed a bag sitting on the floor behind the counter — looked inside — and saw that it contained most of the corks from the bottles of wine that was served for the wine walk.

I decided to spill them out on the counter and take a photograph! So, here are the corks on the counter, visible behind the corks are three small, 5" x 7" original oils by Terje Nordberg.

Downtown Campbell stages a wine walk twice a year — usually February and September. They are great fun, so be sure to attend the next one!

Classico Gelato is certainly one of the better Gelato locations that i have visited and of course it helps that they are my neighbor.  A sweet treat to relieve stress, one small nibble at a time. I recommend to anyone in need of relief to visit this establishment and enjoy a plethora of flavors.

Post Partum Fitness Hits The Streets Of Campbell

Moms and babes take to
 the streets of Campbell
By California standards, it was a chilly Tuesday morning. I was excited and apprehensive to participate in Baby Boot Camp.  My babies are both in their twenties now but I certainly could use the conditioning. And these ladies had all recently given birth so I thought I wouldn't stick out for my lack of fitness...too much.

Ten participants and their babies (with strollers in tow) began their fitness workout with a power walk/jog to the grass area below the water tower in Downtown Campbell. I quickly fell behind and by the time I arrived the new moms were lunging and squatting with gusto. I stepped in line only to realize that these exercises were much more challenging than they appeared. Once the lunges and squats were completed we did a hand and foot crawl on the cement (which was cold). Thankfully, it was time for another power walk/jog, this time to Campbell Park.  Again, by the time I arrived the group was well into repetitions of conditioning exercises.

One of the babies started crying. I took this as an opportunity to be both helpful and to save face. I'm sure the mom knew it. She graciously allowed me to hold her baby for which I was grateful.

Baby Boot Camp is a stroller fitness program that offers classes nationwide. Their slogan is "we offer fitness for you, fun for your child." Their mission is to enable women to be the fittest they've ever been without worrying about who will watch their baby. They offer programs for all fitness levels (well, maybe not mine, lol) including prenatal and postpartum. They believe that healthy women are better moms and better moms have happier (and healthier) kids.
