I finished puzzle #8 and #9.  #9 was a little hard because of all the black.  I couldn't even do the outside edge first because it was so complicated.  However, the challenge was conquered! 

The Times Square one makes me want to visit there.  Some day!

I only have one left in the box of ten puzzles and one panoramic one to finish.

Yesterday, we had a visitor.  He sat in a little bit of water that was in the basketball hoop.  After a quick bath, he hopped out, stayed awhile and then left. 

This is puzzle #8.  I have two more to go in this box, and then one more panoramic one to do.  Some day, I would love to see Times Square, wouldn't you?

Finally, the bathroom curtains are done.  If you look closely, you will see my goof ups.  But, I won't tell you what they are, you will have to come over and check it out yourself!  Not bad for $5, huh?

My friend, Evy, gave me two boxes of puzzles on Friday.  One box has ten puzzles in it, the other box has one.  I finished seven of the ten puzzles.  The other ones will have to wait another day (my back is a little sore).

Zachary hasn't had his hair cut since October or November.  It was time!  He wanted to grow it out for the summer, but it really looked shaggy.  We picked it out first and took a few pictures.

Just cutting the sides...

Gotta keep going...
The pile...

The pile next to size 12 foot...
The new look - it will need trimming, but first he needs to wash it so I can see my errors.
The clean up...

The final - what a handsome boy!

Training?  For what?  I guess it is a wish for a new bike, huh?

Elyse was riding her 18 mile training lap, when she was hit by a car.  She is FINE!  A little scraped knee, but doing fine!  She stayed in a standing position, amazing!  I guess we are in the market for a new bike!

I found this recipe online and thought "most" of us would like it.  It WAS scrumptious!  Even Elyse liked it (for vegetables, she said).

Before baking...

After baking with the cheese added...

It was delicious!  Although ratatouille is just as good and so much less work.  But this one is so pretty!

Sometimes my bread comes out gorgeous...other times, I get this!

Here's the beauty part:  Notice the gorgeous hair!
