Saturday Puzzle Contest! And More Open Contests!
Saturday, June 11th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…Colleen C.!

We had a 7-hour power outage yesterday due to heavy thunderstorms. It started in the morning and lasted well into the afternoon. We pulled the generator out of the shed to power the refrigerator and make cups of coffee (priorities!). Working by candlelight in my basement office was impossible. It’s a daylight basement. From the front of the house, you think it’s a one-story home. From the back, you see two stories. Well, my office is tucked into the way back of the basement and has no windows. I call it my “mole hole” and that lack of windows is perfect for a writer with W.A.D.D. (writer’s ADD).

However, my basement craft room has windows, so that’s where I settled. The light that reached my worktable was dim, but I had to do something. I’ll be cutting out the watercolor flowers for collaging so the ugly marks around them don’t matter (I didn’t like looking at all the white space!). The ink drawing was kind of fun. I used the dropper on my ink bottle to draw it. I’m going to practice with it more. So, not a wasted day. I learned something.

    There are so many books to read that sometimes it is so hard to choose. But Lexi Blake released a new one this week, Delighted that I am itching to read. I think I will go read now.

    I am about to read Mansplaining which I’m pretty excited about. I’ve been reading quite a bit of former military turned security service lately.

    5:45 – that took me ages.

    I’m reading a lot of thrillers.

    I’m reading a contemporary small town romance series – next will probably be something historical – I tend to alternate genres.

    4:21 I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks. I devoured Macy Blake’s The Chosen One series. Fantastic!
