A Puzzle & a Contest!

Can you believe I almost forgot to post today? I’ve been posting a daily blog for YEARS, so you’d think it would be part of my DNA by now. But no. So, this is quick!

So far as what’s happening here…? We discovered mold in the basement. Has anyone ever dealt with it before? OMG. We’re tackling it ourselves. Cleaning walls with chemicals, painting with Drylok, pulling up tiles and replacing them. It’s a huge undertaking. The lockdown is feeling pretty convenient right about now…

Our state is starting to open back up. Can’t pay that unemployment if you force people to work. Not getting into that here though. Such sad, sad news, truly horrifying coming from all over the country, but we’re trying our best not to become statistics. We’re continuing our social distancing throughout the dang summer, come Hell or high water!

The goats are growing and growing! Now, my dd wants a lamb (but not as a pet). The big question will be how to keep the little ones from getting too attached!  I’m still pounding away at my story which I have to finish by end of next week. I’m only a little stressed out (cough). I have two editing jobs to finish this week and another to begin. I’ve got all the work I can do. AND I’m keeping up so far with my daily #100dayproject postings!

Here’s today’s:

So, onto why you’re really here!

For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, solve the puzzle, then tell me a little snippet of a story about this woman!

    She’s dressed like she came from a funeral but has the stance she was hurt and turned her back on the one that hurt her.

    Time – 3:22
    Story – Sadness reigns in her heart as she stands on the shore mourning the unexpected loss of her son. The devastation in her heart was at odds with the beauty and peace here on the shore.

    It’s the late 1800’s and she is mourning the loss of her family. She is now alone and an heiress. The water is her calm place. The place she goes to think through the difficult decisions.

    She felt the autumn chill in her heart.

    She’s taken the long way from the carriage house to the main house so that she can take a breath by herself. She doesn’t want to let the grief overtake her but it’s so all encompassing, so all consuming… Just a moment more, then she’ll return to the neighbors and other well-meaning visitors.

    The one she was betrothed to has disappeared, thought to be dead… she takes a moment for herself to see what she is feeling.

    She looks as though she is feeling a loss she can hardly bare. Thank you for having these puzzles they are helping with that part of my brain that has not healed yet. I keep redoing them over and over so my brain and hand work together
