Cowboy Puzzle Contest
Friday, April 2nd, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…Pansy Petal!

It’s Friday but feels like Saturday. I’ve been a day ahead all week. I even woke the 17-year-old to put out the trash the day before the trashmen came. Gah.

We had freezing weather last night, so dd was looking for sheets to cover her newly planted garden. The local hardware store didn’t have any garden mesh. So far, it looks like everything survived, except perhaps, the lettuce. πŸ™

The pool is still green, but I hope to get that fixed over the next two weeks. The long-range forecast isn’t great for swimming in April, but I’ll be ready for May!!!! I’ve hit it with algaecide, floc, and lots of chlorine. And I’ll have to do it all again in a day or two. The pool is a time and money suck—but so worth it when the summer heat is miserable. We love swimming at night and watching the bats fly overhead. (Yes, that wasn’t a typo!) We also moved our grill to the pool enclosure and have big plans for meals, drinks, etc., at poolside this year.

As for this weekend, I am hoping not to work too hard. I do have a looming book deadline, but I’ll try to only write the # of words I need for the day. I do have a set of edits that need to go out, but again, I’m not killing myself this weekend. I want some rest and to spend some time outdoors since it looks like we’ll have sunshine! I hope you all find some balance this weekend, too!

    Eight minutes twenty one seconds to complete.
    Not giving away the actual picture but if it’ possible to be jealous of a puzzle, well, damn.

    What he’s thinking? Don’t know. Don’t care. Just want to be the one to know.

    Here it is, my wedding night and what happens? You get drunk and cause fracas that I have to rescue you from. You are so in trouble when you sober up. This not how I planned to spend my wedding night!

    I think he left the party before the rest of the guests because he was done waiting.
