Puzzles



So, last weekend I decided to do a puzzle. May of you may not find this unusual; however, as a general rule, I prefer to watch other people do puzzles. Watching people lets you see the work progress without experiencing the frustration firsthand. I've been know to do the occasional 100-200 piece kids puzzles, and I even did a 300 piece puzzle over Christmas with my sister Da's help. Why did I decide to do a puzzle, you ask. Because it was a sphere. What could be more exciting than a spherical puzzle? So, I took it out of the box and began to do it. This particular puzzle has numbers on the back of it, but I was going to try it without the numbers, as that would have been cheating. I connected several of the the fish and then I became frustrated. After an hour of frustration, I began to use the numbers, so that I would actually finish the puzzle. It took quite awhile to even figure out how to use the numbers and even with the numbers, the puzzle was hard enough, as pieces seemed to fit in places where they did not go. I actually finished this puzzle and have posted the pictures with this blog. Not only did I finish the puzzle, I had an enjoyable time working on this puzzle and bought two more to entertain me for another few weekends. I'm off to work on another one

So, since Da is "Keeping us guessing" as to her new job, I was in hopes that you would share what her job is. I also thought I would give you something else to read on your blog.
Cheerio!
