More Puzzling

During the past year and a half I have become quite addicted to jigsaw puzzles. They are so relaxing and I love listening to either an audiobook or music while I work on them. They also remind me a lot of my Dad, we always had a new puzzle when he came to visit me and I think of him with each new puzzle I start. All but one of these (the sewing room) is a 1000 piece. A few I have purchased at thrift stores and usually have really good luck getting complete ones, but three of them were missing just one piece. Ack! Reminds me of when we were young and my sister would take one piece so she could put the last piece in at the end.

Puzzling away the Pandemic

Completed my fourth pandemic puzzle, this one a 1000 piece from Ravensburger. Lots of challenge on this one, especially the different windows. I have a holiday themed one ready but don't want to take this apart quite yet!

Quarantine Day 28

A beautiful Spring day, in stay at home mode, quarantine Day 28. So saddened to have lost music legend John Prine, passed away from complications due to COVID-19. He has brought so much joy to my life since I discovered him through my sister, Kathy. We saw him at The Philadelphia Folk Festival back in 1973 and became devoted fans ever after.
Thanks to Google Play I am able to hear his albums today in loving tribute to him, the first four records so far. I find myself smiling often as I listen, he had a unique way with words and had such a profound understanding of people and the times. A born storyteller. I found out that his father was a tool and die maker, just like mine.

top down day

Day 26 of quarantine and stamping is a wonderful outlet, helping to stay busy and send some love on to someone in need.
This is part of the new release from The Greetery, called Top Down Day. If you have a convertible it would be an awesome day to go out for a ride. Nobody is worried about how your hair looks right now :)

Little Robin Redbreast

These cute cards were made using the Hunkdory "Little Robin Redbreast" kit and sample patterns in the magazine (from Great Britain). I've never done one of these kits before and it was fun and will go to my collection of cards to pass out at the assisted living center for the coming Christmas 2020 season.

Eat What You Love

This is another useful cookbook, your favorite foods made lighter. I couldn't resist picking this up at my old library for 50 cents. Breakfast and muffin recipes in this one are pretty good!
