Pretty Puzzling Day!
Sunday, February 7th, 2021

It’s Sunday! For me, it’s time to retool my plan for the week. I’ll edit some but probably won’t write. After I update my planner, I’ll likely do some housecleaning. I need to move a bit because I’ve been way too sedentary this week. I finally started work on my New Year resolution to concentrate on my health. I joined online WeightWatchers and am at least listing everything I eat even when I’m not “good”. This week, I’ll add listing water to make sure I’m doing what I should there. Little things, not everything at once. Tweaks! Trying to make big changes, all at once, is always my downfall. My dd gifted me with an Alice in Wonderland Tervis cup, so no excuses. My water looks pretty and fun!

Anyways, didn’t intend to share so much, but that’s what happens when I’m at my keyboard! Enjoy the puzzle. It’s perfect for a Sunday! And be sure to check out all of this past week’s open contests!!

A bad night to be here… (Puzzle-Contest)

Puzzlers! I chose this photo because I was looking at pictures from my favorite place to buzz into for a long weekend. I was feeling a little nostalgic. Have fun with the challenge!


For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, solve the puzzle then tell me a little story about what you think is about to happen in this dark place…

Puzzlers, “un-puzzle” this! (Contest)
Sunday, January 24th, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…MARG!


I chose this image for you to “un-puzzle” because I’m a very, very mean person. Kidding. (Using my Kristen Wiig voice there!) However, I wanted a challenging puzzle today, so I’m inflicting my desire upon you. So…mean. 🙂

So, for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, solve the puzzle and tell me your time, then let me know what image you think is missing from this illustration!

Thinking about Montana… (Contest & Open Contests)
Thursday, January 21st, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…Lori Sisson.

I’m groggy today. I spent a good portion of the day trying to watch the inauguration while I was editing. Then, because I was obsessed with the TV, I turned everything off last night and painted. By the time I actually looked at a clock, it was past midnight! And of course, this a.m., I still had to be up to help get kids ready for online school and testing. So…groggy.

Today, I have tons more editing to do. Plus, I have to spend some time either writing or thinking about Hardman’s story. I almost have the opening scene done, and it’s a very fun takedown. On a cold-ass river. Guess who gets soaked to the bone by the skip? Yeah, you’ll have to wait.

But here’s a picture of a Montana river. Something to tide you over. I’ve used this landscape background before on a cover. I love it so much!


For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, tell me what “thing” you have to do today. Big or small.
