Ken and I put jig saw puzzles together during the holidays. We finished one in two days. It was really fun. It came in the mail in a zip lock baggie and there was no picture of it anywhere. Ken was the one who figured out that it was a 500 piece funny baseball game puzzle. It was fun.
When we finished that one, we went into the closet and pulled another. It is the holidays after all and we were on a roll.
Iâ€™m not sure where we got this one â€” it was of a wildlife scene and 1500 pieces. The picture of it looked quite colourful, but the actual pieces are just this side of the same black, blue, brown, and purple with a touch of red in them. Itâ€™s a hard puzzle. We preserved, but never really made much progress.
Ken taught me when to walk out of a movie, when to quit reading a book, and how when things arenâ€™t fun to throw in the towel.
I give most things a good chance. I make an honest effort. But if Iâ€™m not feeling it, I move on â€”especially if it is not important.
We agreed this morning that this puzzle was no fun, so we found another way to enjoy it!
