Free Wallpaper Sites and California fires



I like to redo my PC every month or so with new wallpaper....I expect you do too...if so, I get mine from two different sites...the first is from Cross Cards...they have some very pretty paper,
all with scriptures like the above ....some of the months calendar too...another one is the Birds and Blooms online magazine site
these fall leaves are an example....

Its been very hot here this last week, in the triple digits....it was 107 yesterday.......this kind of weather makes me feel lazy, and with no energy....can't wait until fall...but its rather normal for here....August and September are our warmest months....also our fire season as you've probably heard about......really feel badly for the firemen and pray for their safety as its so hot and sometimes windy....the fire that is most close is the one near San Jacinto, the Cottonwood fire, is about 20 miles north of us...we had a job near there yesterday and saw the smoke billowing up....(.I naturally forgot my camera.)....they fight many of these fires with airplanes and helicopters..dropping both water and fire retardent....
I found this photo on a desert newspaper site, the Desert Sun (Palm Springs) many more photos there if you are interested ...just click on the link
So we are keeping as cool as we can, drinking lots of water, sun tea and crystal light.......trying to eat mainly fruit, cold sandwiches, salads, etc. heavy meals are a no no when its this hot.....
