Global Happiness (A Puzzle & a Contest!)
Friday, December 6th, 2019

UPDATE: The winner is…Becca B!

I’m falling behind and behinder! Yes, things are crazy here. We have mom health issues going on, for which everyone is pitching in. My dd is leaving on a cruise, so I’m moving across the street to watch dogs and cats (11 in all—plus a Guinea Pig!). I have editing jobs lining up, one right after the other. I need to begin a new book or finish an old short story. Doesn’t matter which—I need to write words! And I’m making Christmas gifts, but not fast enough! Everything store bought is bought, but I like to add some pretties to stockings, but production is sloooooow… So, yes, holiday stress is running high.

So…I thought a puzzle would be nice. Something sweet to remind us of how it feels when the holiday finally arrives. Enjoy a moment of peace. And then, comment below, telling me what has you stressed or if you’re made of steel nerves and aren’t stressed at all! I’ll do a random pick and send the commenter the download of their choice from among my 200 releases!

    5:38 for me. I have slow fingers. And I get what you mean. Some folks are so hard to choose for. So, I look for things like a restaurant gift cert. Or a Cheese basket. Or socks and pajamas…

    We are both retired, so I’m the one who makes sure the bills get paid. So between that and the medical bills, I’m stressed although I try not to be. So reading books is my escape. Happy Holidays.

    4:57… and I’m not stressed except for being away from family. But then, being near family has it’s own stresses! LOL!

    What a lovely image, Delilah! HUGS! I’m trying to breathe deeply and not get too stressed. It’s all the little details–cards, gifts, and other things that need creating, addressing, wrapping, mailing… treats to be made… Gotta remember why we do it all <3 Take care!! 3:43

    3:52 Nice puzzle.

    What stresses me out. The simple fact that it is the season. I have a great dislike for this season for a lot of reasons. Most days are okay, but today . . . Not so much. I do much avoidance this time of year. Hang in. Only a few more weeks.

    5:38 – boy I’m slow! Not really any holiday stress here. No kids and hubby and I don’t exchange gifts any more as we just buy what we want.

    I do enjoy spending time with family and friends.
