End of Summer

Last Days of Summer

Hard to believe summer’s ending around here. This weekend it was over 100 degrees F. in San Diego. Sooo unusual. It was a dry heat, but still. We survived by going to the movies–saw The Words and liked it, despite mixed reviews.

Something else I did this weekend was to discover jigsawexplorer.com. Have you tried it? Truly habit-forming. You can even turn one of your own photos into a puzzle. I tortured myself with the pastel rose photo I just posted last week. πŸ™‚ Luckily, the puzzles are small, and take only twenty minutes or so to complete. Unless you do the “challenging” ones.

    100…wow that is unusual. Makes me glad I’m in London, except you have access to better Mexican food. Love the photos.

    We are having an out of season heat waves as well but first it got really cold for a week. Odd.
    I like the first picture a lot. It reminds me of Scotland for some reason.

  3. What a cool photo jigsaw website. I can’t wait to give it a try. Thanks for sharing that.

  4. It’s nearly the same here in France. Not quite 100degrees, but a lot warmer than we expect. Autumn is certainly holding off. I can live with that:)

    I guess I have to admit it as well … summer is rapidly coming to an end. I’ve already made my road trip to Fort Myers plans for November!

    • Already! Cheryl, how’s the house progressing?

        Slowly, Carole. Two months behind and now another delay because the roof trusses were built wrong … backing up to remove and repair! Good thing it was discovered a third of the way into completing the trusses (200+). Looks like it will be spring before we can move in. Snow by February will be thigh deep.

      • Oh, no. Seems like it always takes longer than expected. So glad they discovered the problem before it was too late.
        Well, you have a lot to look forward to this spring!
