My 'Puzzle Mania' Has Made a Brief Reappearance!

Hello everyone! I hope that you're all just fine this morning - I certainly am! :) Anyway, I just wanted to give you an update on how I'm doing so far.

I just started doing a jigsaw puzzle that I bought from the Library Book Sale that Mareena and I went to on Monday, June 1st. It's of a very pretty pastoral scene at sunset. I actually started doing this puzzle on Monday evening, June 15th, and managed to finish up about one third of it. Incredibly early on Wednesday morning, June 17th - roughly about 5: 30 or 5:45 A. M. I think - I was jolted awake by a tremendous crash.

I jumped out of bed, my pulse racing, and was immediately and very enthusiastically greeted by Ms. Lollipop purring at the bottom of my bed. I'm absolutely sure that I groaned aloud, but I'm less sure if I may have teared up slightly as I took in the scene spread out before me. It was an absolute mess! ;) lol!!!

My puzzle table was tipped over, and my partly-finished puzzle was scattered all over the floor. And the culprit was cuddled up at my side, calmly kneading my bedspread, head-butting and nuzzling my arm in a shameless ploy for attention. It only took me about ten or fifteen minutes to clean up the mess, but I'll admit that Ms. Lollipop and I had a very stern conversation about her absolutely atrocious (ahem!) behavior while I picked up the pieces of my puzzle.

There were many frowns and loud groans directed towards Ms. Lollipop, and Mareena was sadly shaking her head, glancing down at a patrolling Lollipop and sighing as she helped me collect the pieces. We studiously avoiding looking at each other, because if we had someone would probably have started laughing - Lollipop was proudly strolling around, completely oblivious that she was the reason for her humans being wide awake; she only wanted her favorite treat - 'Dairy Flavored Kitty Crunchies'! After all, we were up and about, so of course, Lollipop must be fed! ;) lol!!!

Anyway, I started reading Ellen Foster: A Novel by Kaye Gibbons on Tuesday, June 16th! This was a relatively short book that I acquired from a Library Book Sale that Mareena and I went to in April of 2014. It's a very good book, I think, but I'm not that far into it as yet.

Till we Meet Again, Glow Brightly as Moonlight


  1. Sounds like Lollipop is a handful. :-)

  2. That she is, Carmen! LOL! Honestly, I probably should have been way more annoyed with Lollipop than I actually was, but both Mareena and I were both so tired (not to mention that Mareena had rushed in from her bedroom utterly convinced that she might have to call 911 to extricate her mother from under something extremely heavy!) I must say that she developed the widest grin on her face when she discovered what actually happened!!! :) We neither of us had the strength to maintain our annoyance with Lollipop for her seeming obliviousness to the situation. We chose to see the amusing side of the whole incident, and since no one was hurt and nothing was broken, that made it easier for us to laugh! ;)


Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
