I’m feeling a little scattered today, but I’m blaming it on the time change. We moved the clocks up one hour this morning so although it’s only about 3:00, it feels like dinner time. I know it’s only 60 minutes difference, but messing with the clocks is unsettling.

So, today’s post reflects my internal rhythm – lots of little things with no uniting theme.

Once the kids had settled down and the adults caught their breath, I took a few pictures.
Off to New Mexico for a few days…I’ll be on the look-out for good books about the Southwest and, of course, a warm sopapilla!
