365 Photography Project_3rd_August Post

Seemingly random this month...ah well.

Thursday August 1, 2013_July reading.
August01_2013_July reading
I finished The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, which when I read it the first time, he hadn't even entirely written. I am glad to have now completed the series. Jesus Land by Julia Scheeres is a memoir I read because Lauren said I had too, it was just that good and she was right. Every Day by David Levithan is the story of a 15 year old who wakes up every day as some new, other 15 year old, different genders, different races, different social standings etc. Mister Monday & Grim Tuesday are the first of seven books in the Kings to the Kingdom young reader series by Garth Nix. Each book is named after a day of the week and each day of the week represented one of the seven deadly sins. I'll try a summation next month when I post about the other 5 books :)

Friday August 2, 2013_We did this month's bookclub, Seriously, I'm Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres, at Katie's, which has this view from in front of her house. The 'meeting' was held in her backyard, under the stars while we drank sangria and munched on much deliciousness and discussed life and, at times, even the book. Lovely evening.

Saturday August 3, 2013_Our first August puzzle of an amazing, and really kind of disgusting, sandwich.

Thursday August 15, 2013_The outside and inside of the Berkeley Rep where we saw No Man's Land, which I have discussed at length already on my journal HERE. They wouldn't let us take photos during the production. So sad :(

You're more then welcome :)

If they ever do The Rosetta Stone puzzle, I hope you'll post a pic of it, I'd love to see. I think for Lauren and me, setting a due date, each Sunday, when the puzzle needs to be done, helps a lot. What amazes me is that each one has its own personality, its own way of being put together, some harder, some easier. I'm not sure why, but it's really true :)

Good luck Taylor and Bryton!

Great puzzles! I truly know I don't have the patience for those anymore.

I wouldn't either...on my own, but with Lauren working them with me, we keep each other going :)

Those puzzles are gorgeous! I don't think I'd have the patience.

They really are pretty puzzles and, on my own, I doubt I'd have the patience to complete one either, but with Lauren, we work off of each others strengths and weaknesses, which seems to work pretty well.

I love the puzzles! Just did one over the weekend. Missing one piece though, argh. :-P

I swear, at some point in the putting together of each puzzle, I'll declare that 'one piece is MISSING!' but it always magically turns up. Sorry yours didn't. Was yours animals, flowers, birds, landscapes?? Hint Hint!

Haha, I always declare that too, and usually it does turn up. We combed the floor looking, but no luck! It was a picture of a flower garden in Holland.

... does indeed sound like a lovely evening. :)

What great puzzles. Glad I don't have to eat a sandwich like that though. lol.

Love that last one too.

Usually we meet on a Saturday morning at a local restaurant which is lovely too, but these rare evening meetings last longer and are more...luxurious, I guess.

I'm glad Lauren and I decided make puzzles part of our summer routine, has been great fun and a learning experience.
