Saturday Puzzle Contest!
Saturday, October 1st, 2022

Ugh! So, today is the first time in a week that I’ve felt kind of normal. No huge headache, no low-grade fever, no desire to simply stay in bed. Yay!

I’m thinking that between the horrible heat I dealt with last weekend, my newly diagnosed high blood pressure, and the COVID bivalent booster and flu shots I got during my doctor’s visit, my body simply said, Enough!

So, while I’m tackling my infinite To-Do list, how about you all have fun with this puzzle!

For a chance to win your choice of download from among my backlist of books, solve the puzzle then tell me what you think this picture is all about.  Have fun!

Saturday Puzzle Contest! Theme: My favorite hot beverage!
Saturday, September 24th, 2022

I’m running around, grabbing more art off the walls to throw up in my tent at the Arkadelphia Festival of the Arts. Everything went well yesterday despite the heat (a high of 88 degrees!), and today’s supposed to hit a scorching 97 degrees! Gah. I drank so much water yesterday and was limp in my seat for the afternoon, but I sold some art! Whee!

So, quickly, here’s the Saturday contest! I’ll be back at my desk tomorrow, catching up contest winners, trying to get a handle on my workload for the following week. I’m just a little bit stressed about how I’m going to catch up!

For a chance to win your choice of download from among my backlist of books, solve the puzzle then share what your favorite hot beverage is.  Have fun!

Favorite Romance Subgenres Word Search! (Contest)
Wednesday, September 21st, 2022

Hey, word-puzzle enthusiasts, are you ready for another word search?

This week’s theme is favorite romance subgenres. I think I’ve written something in every subgenre listed here, except sports. I love to read in every one of them though. And no, I don’t have everything listed. I can see a glaring omission—science fiction (one of my favorites to write!). But I did have to keep it to ten answers, so…

Solve the puzzle then tell me your favorite subgenres for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card!

I’m late posting today because a friend messaged my dd to tell us there was a garage sale we could not miss this morning! The woman was selling vintage Pyrex dishes, which my daughter collects. My SIL was game to drive us there and patiently waited while we picked through her junk to find hidden treasures! We came away with so many pieces of Pyrex my daughter doesn’t have room to display them! It’s a great problem for an addict to have. I worked my way down one end of the table, snagging items I knew she’d want, and when we met in the middle we were both thrilled at all our finds.

Then I went through the rest of the tables looking for strange and wonderful treasures, which are what I collect—not that most of my treasures are worth anything, but I’m always looking for the thing that makes me happy.

The item I came away with cost an entire dollar! You have to solve the puzzle to see the tarnished brass (tarnish just means it has been around a while, like me). We looked on eBay to see what similar things go for. The ones we found were promotional type items produced in the 50s. Mine was sold at Knott’s Berry Farm—Ghost Town, California—I have no idea when. The top part flips to change numbers. The screws on the sides change other settings. Now, you have to see what the little treasure is, right? It’s found its forever-home on my desk. 🙂
