Puzzle Time!

While my daughter was recuperating from having her tonsils out I bought her
these two puzzles. After she finished them, we put a glue glaze on them and put them
in poster frames. She has done several of these and she displays them in
her room. She is a big "I love Lucy" fan and of course loves Johnny Depp! The one
of Johnny is a photomosaic and that is why it looks a little blurry. I also got her the latest
in the Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Series, Breaking Dawn. Of course she loved it! Now
that school as started and she is in her senior year she will not have time for things like
this so it was good she had something to keep her busy those last weeks before school
started.
I was reading Wanda Brunstetter's the third in the Amish series, Sisters of Holmes County.
I really enjoy her stories and this series went really fast too. I don't seem to be reading as
fast as I normally do and this book will only be my 60th book for the year. I have a goal of
100!

Hi Joy~

I am so glad you came by! I am also an avid reader but not as ambitious as you are, what a fantastic goal you have. I know you will be able to reach it. :)The puzzle turned out great, my daughter would faint over that one. I hope to hear from you again soon.
Take care~ Jessica

What nice things you got for your daughter to do while recovering.

I hope that she is feeling well by now.

I always have a book or two that I am reading. I've never counted but I doubt if I read more than 2 a month.... I thought that was doing pretty good... but 6o... or a 100... WOW!!!!!

After all the time to do a puzzle, that's a good idea to put them in a frame.

You've put me in the puzzle mood. We love doing them...but I'm not the best. The pieces just seem to jump out for my DH and daughter...they do 90% and I do 10%:). Both your reads sounds good. I'm reading a light mystery now and enjoying it. Hugs, Linda

Hello Sweet Joy!

I just went to visit a lady from my church today and she was doing a puzzle! She said she always has one out to do and enjoyed putting them together! I am sure when it comes to your daughters birthday or Christmas time, it is easy to buy for her!

Have a blessed and safe weekend!

Hugs,
Maryjane
