Now it’s on to breakfast …and the morning puzzles in the newspaper. (I know: reading a newspaper is so quaint!)
In the morning I like to make a small bowl of oatmeal, with frozen blueberries (partly thawed), a few nuts, and some milk. I flip through the paper for headlines and not-too-depressing news items, and then I tackle the crossword. (I’ve been known to work the Sudoku puzzle too!) My son and I like to work on the “Jumble” (anagrams of words) together, and that makes it a special time for us together.

I used to always leave it for him to do, and in turn he leaves the crossword puzzle for me to do (if not, I give him “the grumpy look”). But recently I got a hankering to try the KenKen more regularly. We each wanted to do it! What to do, what to do? … Drawing on my recent sketch-a-day project, I started to draw the KenKen every morning for myself to do. Here it is:
After breakfast and puzzles, it’s on to the work of the day. Meantime, Mittens and Pickles are getting in their first relaxation of the day.
