This Week – Puzzle Champions

Last week’s post mentioned a local puzzle competition and I’m happy to report that we won! Here we are with the 500 piece donut puzzle and the basket full of goodies we won. There were only 5 other tables and it was a fun family night for all.

The rest of the week was crazy busy. Election training and family in town for two days happened over the weekend and into the Monday. Gage got spacers in his mouth in preparation for an expander and, eventually, braces. I hosted book club for Other Birds and I WILL get a separate post up because it was a great book that led to a fun themed menu.


Other Birds by Sarah Addison Allen. A comfort read. Look for a post this week.

Blackwater Falls by Ausma Zeharat Khan is the first in a series about Detective Inaya Rahman and I really liked it. It’s politically relevant and I’m looking forward to the next one.

I’ve read 5 picture books about China that will show up in a post soon.

Read 7 books. 62 for the year.


Nope, 2022. If you’re looking for something different this is the movie for you.


Sammi is turning into quite the puzzle model lately.

Plans for the Weekend

A friend started a virtual Romance Book Club and today is the first meeting. The sun is out so I’m hoping for some time outside.

What about you?

      My son was so happy to win the puzzle competition. Personally, I think they definitely should have had wine for the adults, lol!! Nope is slow moving, which my husband didn’t care for, but I was in just the right mood for it. Hope you like it.

    So many blogs are reporting about puzzles. I think some of the action is due to the prolonged winter in many parts of the country, but your puzzle competition is a neat wrinkle in this news.
