Quotable Sunday ~ My Mom Does the NY Times Crossword Puzzle in Pen


Quotable Sunday is one of my favorite days of the week. I love thinking about my week and a theme that I can relate to great quotes. I was sitting her watching K play with a puzzle and thought "puzzle"! What a great theme! I found this one right away and it made me think of my Mom because she actually does the New York Times crossword puzzle every day IN PEN! Now, I don't think that makes her an egotist but it sure as heck makes her one freakin' brilliant Mama!

    Ha! Love the quote! But when I saw your blog title, I thought 'Her mom must be a genius!' :)

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! :)

    I love the quote! My Mother-in-law used to do the New York times puzzel in pen also. She was from New York and she always replied with a no big deal!

    Love the quote. I hate to do crosswords in pencil, especially the newspaper ones, I don't like the feeling of the pencil on the paper.... weird I know!

    Very clever.

    You know, I've never done a real crossword puzzle. And if I did, I'd for sure have to use pencil. :)

    Happy Sunday!
