The current jigsaw puzzle is finished and a new one is waiting in the wings. It was part of the "care package" from the family. I will start it later today. I think it will be easier than this one. Watch for a daily report of its progress.
I found that there were two pieces missing. Hope they turn up the next time I vacuum!
I have just dipped into "The Kitchen House" and I think I will enjoy it - also historical fiction. It was also in the "care package" - my daughter and I have the same taste in books.
