Changing Times

One of the things I appreciated most about my time in Arizona was that it didn't observe Daylight Savings Time. (Trust me, nobody wants the Sun to set later in the summer there.) I despise changing the time, falling back or springing forward. Nowadays, it's easier. Our cell phones, computers, cable boxes... they all change automatically. But my inner fourth-grader will always remember walking to school, across a vacant playground and then having all eyes turn to her as she walked into class an hour late. Feh.

Today - watched Pats-Colts. It was fun to watch such a good game without rooting for either team, sort of an "NFL Appreciation" class. During half-time, I put together a loaf of pumpkin bread and a dozen pumpkin muffins. Tasty breakfasts await us this week!

Yay pumpkin! I made pumpkin cookies on Saturday. Still have the other half can... what to do with it...?

Oooh... pumpkin cookies are next on my list. Or pumpkin scones... or both! You can make the pumpkin bread that I did; Greg posted the recipe here. The recipe halves nicely.

Daylight savings is about the only way I ever end up seeing SNL. I go to bed and think... oh well, missed another crappy SNL episode and then I remember "Hey, i'ts just starting! I get to watch a crappy SNL episode!"

I'm glad you've found the silver lining. Me? It just makes me want to eat and sleep more. Bah!
