I haven't been doing any jigsaw puzzles for several days, ever since I stopped doing that one puzzle on Wednesday, July 29th! Actually, I had started this particular puzzle on Saturday afternoon, July 25th and two days later was starting to wonder if I should put it aside for a while. I had promised myself that if I hadn't finished a substantial portion of this particular puzzle by Wednesday afternoon, July 29th, I would put it away for a while. And that's exactly what ended up happening.
As for my reading, I finished reading On the Ropes: A Duffy Dombrowski Mystery by Tom Schreck on Saturday, August 8th and immediately started reading The Shack: A Novel by William P. Young the next day - Sunday, August 9th! Three days into this book, I can truly say that the story is poignant and stirring; and seems to be starting off rather brilliantly. I just hope that it continues to be so good.
