Got a few things done on Tuesday.

Looks like we skipped Spring and went directly to Summer this year. The next three days are the coolest days we've had this month. And they are cool only because of the WIND. They judge wind here by garbage cans - if they stay in your yard - no wind, if they blow over - breezy. The last couple of days it has been - you can't find them. Bill took his anemometer - wind measuring thingy - out back and measured gusts to 56 sustained at 30. By the end of next week we will be back up into the 90's. UGH. A couple of days the Dew Point was in minus numbers - humidity about 2.

Night before last a pretty sunset. Just happened to look outside at the right time. 
Yesterday we took my car, the mustang, to WalMart to have tires put on it.  Just to waste time I decided I'd go to the hair cut place to see if they were open. They were and no one was there. So got my hair cut. Trying to let it grow out a little but can't stand it in the back when it gets shaggy. So got a nice trim.
Did over 5000 steps just wandering around the store waiting for the car to be ready. Up and down every aisle, saw more of the store then ever before. I did wander through toys and much to my surprise found a great puzzle set. Eight puzzles and a good manufacture. The pieces are nice size and not flimsy. Best part only $18.50. A year ago on line it was $40!
So had to do one yesterday afternoon. One of the small ones. 
It took them 2 1/2 hours to get the tires on the car...Luckily while walking around the store I managed restraint and didn't buy the place out. And got some walking in. 
Finally finished the earrings, now making necklace. Pictures later.

Like your round puzzle - I got a 500 piece round one of an owl and was difficult to find all of the edge pieces as some of them were so narrow at the edge they were easy to miss first time around.....no pun intended. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€. But I persisted and got it done. As always I enjoy your photos.

Now that's a nice regular day doing regular things. Doesn't happen much anymore. Lovely and warm here. Nights are still coolish and I walk every morning at 7am before it gets too warm. The beach is lovely and quiet now. Enjoy!

Sandy, I kind of enjoy the round ones, something different. This was only 300 pieces. And some of the interior pieces looked like edge pieces.
Kathy - Hopefully we are slowly returning to "real" life. I am craving going to a restaurant to eat - I want bacon and steak, neither of which Bill eats.
