Puzzling

Many things about life puzzle me. For example, why does putting a puzzle together feel so satisfying? This is our biggest ever at 3000 pieces, a Christmas gift from our daughter and significant other. Do we still say “significant other”? I am completely out of touch.

Our adult children helped us get a good start on it over the holiday. Then they left Mark and me to pick up the pieces.

We’re getting there. I can taste victory.

I enjoy reading, writing, gardening, photography, genealogy and travel. I have opinions about many things, but am trying to age gracefully and not continually tick people off with them. Sometimes I can’t help myself.

  1. Now that’s a puzzle! For many years we’ve done a Christmas puzzle too–but never more than 3000 pieces. This year we started doing jigsaw puzzles on our iPads a month or so before the time we normally purchase our holiday puzzle so didn’t get one. I find puzzle time to be so relaxing and a good time to think about all kinds of things. Good luck on this one! It looks beautiful.

    1. Do you have a good iPad app? I haven’t looked at puzzle apps for a long time. It is kind of zen for me. I don’t think we’ll be doing any larger ones than this either.

  2. My seven-year-old grandson gets the same pleasure from his lego. I get satisfaction from solving a sudoku before bed.

    Three thousand pieces! That’s a big challenge. Good luck.

    1. I know. I almost wrote an analogy to life, but opted out. Happy New Year Sue. I hope to be around a little more, but I’ve got a lot of loose ends on my desk right now. Take care.

      1. No worries at all Christine.. I am trying better to keep to my email alerts.. but No doubt It will soon go by the wayside when the growing season gets underway πŸ™‚ xxx
