The quick brown fox jumped over the good, but lazy Parker family.

daylight savings

it looks like everything is back to normal in the sparkler household — well, healthy, if not normal.

this weekend we opted out of yet another social event — our fourth missed halloween party / birthday party / playdate in 10 days — out of an over-abundance of caution that viruses (viri?) aren’t a heck of a lot of fun and probably shouldn’t be shared with friends and neighbors.

so, we did what we could to keep sparklet’s mind busy while her body adapts to the time change — even if it meant carving month old pumpkins a week after the passage of Halloween rendered them seasonally inappropriate.

p.s. i absolutely love the picture, above — there is something special in the annual slide towards winter, and in eeking out every last drop of sunlight with your friends before running inside for dinner.
