Man oh man, is it stinking hot! We were having a mild summer, but as usual, right around Labor Day things heat up. It was 107 here in Temecula yesterday; it’s 104 right now. I have the air set at 80 and it’s running nonstop. We have four wildfires burning in Southern California; people may lose their homes. It’s a tinderbox. The picture above is of a house burning in Lake Arrowhead a couple of years back, and the picture of the map speaks for itself. I’m taking my youngest daughter out for a pedicure, and then lunch. My oldest daughter and the baby went to the pool with a friend. I would have gone but I had too much to do. Now that I’ve finished, it’s time to relax in one of those spa chairs for a spell. Have a great end of summer weekend all!

OH! I almost forgot to tell you guys, I got the PROOF of my book, Boomer Tales, Please Stand By, and I’ve been working like a demon going over every line with a sharp number 2 pencil. So it won’t be long now before we have a real book on our hands. Yay! Finally.

Great news the book is almost out. You must be very proud, indeed. Fire is always a major problem in the hot, dry months. Take care.

It is really smokey here in Tahoe. We heard there was a fire in Yosemite. I really hate fire season!

Congrats on the book, Elizabeth! I can't wait to read it!

Oh, I envy you for the heat. We had about two weeks of real summer this summer and now it looks already like fall! :(

Burn ban here it's been so hot and dry. Triple digits all summer instead of just in august. I am glad for this summer to be ending. It was actually pleasant this morning. I hope the fires get put out quickly.

Congrats on the book.

As a dedicated lover of SoCal I have been keeping an eye on the news, the fires over the past couple years have been awful. I truly hope that even if homes are lost no one is injured. Try to stay cool...a pedi and spa sounds like a nice way to shake off the heat AND to celebrate the upcoming conclusion to your book project yippie!!
