we jettisoned the sofa to the porch so we'd have more room for tables. this was universally declared a success.

instead of one long table this year, we had four separate tables of 6 people each. this worked better, and it was more possible to get across the room.

sunset on the sandias. "sandia" means "watermelon" in Spanish, and this is why the mountains are named that. they do this most nights, even without the snow, but snow brings it out.
