Every weekend I turn one of my photos into an online puzzle. Today's that day so jump for joy.
You're getting robbed of words and stories with this puzzle because as it happens I still haven't finished last weekend's weekend crap.
So I'm going straight into the puzzle featuring Lip and his best friend Sterling as they romped and wrestled in the snow late Friday afternoon. Because of the ice, the snow was like a pavlova. A crispy, cracking outer layer with a softer meringue layer underneath.
Which is supposed to be added to tomorrow with more snow, ice and rain on its way.
I will start planning my dinner for that night immediately because we know that I will not be ordering food online again.

The number of days before I'll probably think about having food delivered again.
BIG NEWS - I finished the stand mixer decal pattern and tested it Friday afternoon. A bit too late to get the post written and ready for publishing but the free stand mixer decal download will be posted in the next couple of days.
Have a good remainder of your weekend.
That is the most glorious dogs-in-snow photograph I have ever seen.
I could go seek out online puzzles on my own but these are so fun when they simply show up in my inbox! thanks!
Fortunately in our little nook off Lake Erie, across from you, we didn’t get all that ice and snow, just a glazing that was gone by afternoon. But 15 miles northeast and it was like what you got. It all depends on how the wind blows!
I look forward to your puzzles since I’m up roaming the house at oddly early hours of the morning, but when I get about 3/4 done with the big one it resets! It happens 2 out of 3 times. It happened with the flow blue plates. I don’t even want to attempt the pups because it’s so frustrating, and I’m having a tennis elbow flare up so it hurts after awhile lol. I did go to the puzzle site and create a few puzzles of our new puppy. It’s really easy to use and a lot of fun to create your own. Yet another lesson learned from Karen, that’s why I love this blog!
Mine has reset every time on the large one. My ADHD + a little OCD has me sorting the pieces into innies and outies, and when it resets - I’m finished with it. I must have tried to start over again the first or second time it happened and it did it again. (I also have to admit - at Christmas time, I purchased a working tablet, so I could do these puzzles on something larger than a phone! 😂) I’m loving these puzzles! Thank you, Karen! I especially loved your blue dinnerware puzzle. 😍😍❤️❤️
Thanks Patty! I love my flow blue! ~ karen
Great idea to make your own. I love Karen’s puzzles , there aren’t any annoying ads. However it’s really touchy and reverts to a small size when moving a piece into place.
Love the puzzles Karen, did the big one this morning while four of our grandchildren wreaked havoc around me. Serenity now!
Captivated by Lip & Sterling! And happy to hear Lip has a best bud!
It's so good (for both of you) that Flip has a friend, and enough room, to run around with regularly! Thanks as always for our beautiful picture puzzle day.
As always, fun puzzles. Looks like the beasties were having a grand old time in that Winter wonderland. Despite my severe acrophobic reality, the lifelong flatlander in me does admire natural landscape that goes up and down. Your area is blessed with hills and delightful scenery.
Hi Karen, just wanted to let you know that doing the puzzles you post has turned me into a puzzle addict. Since Christmas I have done 78 On lIne puzzles with an average completion time of 2 1/2 hours....
Wow! I've discovered I really don't even like doing them, lol. EXCEPT I discovered that I love the 20 piece ones. ~ karen!
Great pic of Lip & bf Sterling!
Thanks for the puzzles - a favorite of mine. BUT I can't hardly wait to try the decals. I have a big plan to use them in my garden. No other clues available. I'm very excited.
Just dropping a line to tell you I really enjoy when you post about Phillip....
I like that you tell people he's a dog dog. When I was a kid I got my first own dog, a poodle, Mickey. He was a dog dog too. People look at poodles and tend to consider them fru fru critters. Well my Mickey loved swimming in the lake, fetching for hours, rolling in dead fish, puking up said dead fish, etc. He could catch a frisbee like the best Border Collie you've ever seen. He wasn't barky or bitey, he was just a great companion and friend.
Loves those poodles.
Hi Carolyn! You're absolutely right. They're the doggiest dogs! Lip is TERRIBLE at catching things in his mouth, lol. But he'd stay outside in the freezing cold and snow for hours if I left him. He's VERY boisterous but can calm down when you ask him to - most of the time, lol. I'll have to get back to you on the rolling in dead fish, we haven't encountered that particular game yet. ~ karen!
