I'm Back to Doing Jigsaw Puzzles!

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.

First of all, I actually started doing something again that I did semi-professionally for several years after I was married: which was knitting. For about three or four years after my husband and I were married - in fact, just before Mareena was born - I used to knit things for my neighbors and occasionally sold some of these creations as well. My 'business' wasn't all that exclusive; although I generally knitted only by request and not always for payment. So, for the past couple of days I have been knitting a little jacket for myself.

I'm also still working through an amazing backlog of crossword puzzles and sudoku puzzles from the newspaper. So far, I've done approximately 79 sudoku and crossword puzzles from the newspaper, although I have also done some sum-doku puzzles from my puzzle books, too! I haven't really finished an entire sum-doku puzzle book from my collection since Saturday, December 3rd - I have been working through partial puzzles from the moderately difficult to extremely difficult levels!

I have also started doing jigsaw puzzles again. The first puzzle that I chose to do was actually the sixth puzzle out of my giant box of twelve that I have. Yes, I have already done all these puzzles before, but I just wanted to do them again. I started this sixth puzzle on Wednesday afternoon, January 18th and finished it on Saturday afternoon, January 21st!

Actually, I took a slight break from doing jigsaw puzzles after I finished the one called 'Frederick the Literate' on Thursday night, January 5th! Since I had started the puzzle on Saturday afternoon, December 31st, apparently it only took me a total of six days to complete a 750-piece jigsaw puzzle. Not too bad, if I do say so myself!

So, as regards my own reading, the most recent book that I've read was Treasures by Belva Plain, which I finished on Wednesday, January 18th! I actually have two copies of this book in my library, and I read it for the first time over six days in September of 2010 - from September 11th, to September 17th, 2010! I'm sure that someone else would definitely enjoy reading this book as much as I have, so I have posted both copies of this book on the several book swapping websites that we belong to.

I recently started reading Debbie: My Life by Debbie Reynolds and David Patrick Columbia on Thursday, January 19th! I suppose that I'm not really into the story so far, although, according to Goodreads - as of today, January 24th - I've actually read 46 pages out of 446 in Debbie: My Life by Debbie Reynolds and David Patrick Columbia; or approximately 10 percent. Since my own copy of Debbie: My Life by Debbie Reynolds and David Patrick Columbia actually has 374 pages in it; reading 46 pages means that I have read approximately 12 percent.

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! :)
