It's Time to Play...What Season Is This?

Does anyone know if we even have seasons anymore?  Here in Reno, NV we usually have snow galore in the winter, hardly any rain in the summer. and a nice, dry Spring and Fall.  This week alone, I think we will have had a little of each...in one week!!!  75 and sunny on Monday, windy and 50s today, rain is scheduled (with 40s for tomorrow) and then back up to 60s by the weekend?  Oh my. I have been trying to explain to my Spectrum Super Hero, Cooper (my 15 year old Autistic son and all around super awsome kid), that just because Winter technically ended last week, that doesn't mean we still won't get winter stuff!  I don't think he gets it.  If only it really did work that way.  If only we could plan a lot of our life that way...yeah right! 

I know that many of you out East had  Old Man Winter make a really rude appearance today...even I think that stinks, and I adore snow.  I know, I'm one of those cheery snow people.  Sorry!  If it helps at all, which it probably won't that much, below is a story that will maybe melt a little bit of your heart. 


I hope my boys take note of this fine, young man.  There's a proud, proud mama out there somewhere tonight.  You did good, Mrs. Payne, you did good!

Hope this brought a smile to your face and warmed your heart.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you will again. 

Keep taking some time and finding some Peace from the Puzzle!

The Second Time Around...Peace from the Puzzle

Oh boy, it has been a couple of years since my last blog.  Is there some kind of blogger's confession I can go to?  I was behind the times the first time I did a blog, and I haven't made much progress in the technical or internet world since then.  So with that said, please bare with me. I have started a Facebook page with the same title as this here little blog...Peace From The Puzzle.  A little play on words for the puzzling world in which I live in, along with my two teenage boys, one of which is on the Autism Spectrum, hence the "puzzle" part of the title (*a puzzle piece, for those not familiar, is a symbol associated with Autism).  The "peace" is a play on words, as I try each day to find the positives, and some peace...not just from being a part of an Autism family, but from the craziness and negativity in our world today. 

This poor little blog page is pretty "naked" right now, but as I scratch my way back into the blogosphere, I promise to make it dressier.  Hang in there with me! 

For now, I will sign off, but wanted to get this started before I lost all of my nerve!  Keep coming back, pretty please.  All visitors welcome.  No Autism relationship necessary, if  you just want an escape for a little while, then hop on my blog and sit for a while.  Shuffle around and find some "peace" from your puzzle!

See you all soon!
