A trip into Santa Fe, NM

We were getting low on some items and I needed to change the oil in generator so we drove the 25 miles into Santa Fe.  Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera.  Santa Fe is a neat city with unique southwestern architecture and a rare find called Sage Bakery.   I Googled “bakery” and found this 56 year-old-bakery.  Sandy had a cappuccino and I had a cup of plain coffee and we each had a pastry. Everything was wonderful.  We took home a loaf of raisin-pecan bread that will go great with coffee for breakfast tomorrow.

While in Santa Fe we visited Walgreen's for our flu shot.  According to CDC anyone over 6 months of age should get the flu shot this year.  Did you get yours?
Here was tonight’s sunset.

Next Tuesday we begin a long south-easterly trip that will take us back to McKinney, TX to have a couple of quirky window blinds adjusted and then into Nacogdoches, TX for some fiberglass repairs and finally into Readyville, TN where we hope to remove the carpet in our living room and replace it with tile or laminate. Once we leave Readyville in late November, it will be by car to drive about 600 miles to Illinois to spend most of December with our children.

I will not be blogging as often, but stay tuned.


  1. If you get tile, consider getting a heated tile put in. Tile gets COLD and keeps the inside cold :) I'm enjoying your blog.

  2. Steve and Kathy,
