The sun is out. Haven’t seen it for a couple of days, which is a good thing. It started raining during the night Wednesday and we had almost two inches of rain by morning. It was a beautiful rain. No wind, no lightening, no hail, just nice gentle rain. And boy did we need it. And then it rained a bit more overnight and this morning to give us a tad over two inches. It is a bit cool today as it was yesterday. Definitely feels like fall instead of the middle of August.
Yesterday, with the clouds and rain, was a perfect day to the start the puzzle I bought back in July. It was one of the things on my list “of things to do when I retire”. Boy, it is going to be a hard one. One thousand pieces, 39 x 19 inches in size. Plan on hanging it above the table in our “new entry/puzzle room. It will be perfect there. Of course, it might be awhile. I haven’t even got the border done. Hubby helped some this morning. That really surprised me since he made it clear that he doesn't like puzzles. He even found a few pieces. Hopefully that hooked him. I sure could use the help. I am beginning to think I should have started smaller. After all, the biggest puzzle I have put together in years has been a child’s 100 piece one.
This is how far I am.
And this is what it will look like when I am done.
When I was a kid, we always had a puzzle in progress on the dining room table. The whole family worked on it. When one was finished, another was started. Did you work puzzles as a kid? Do you still work puzzles or are you not a puzzle worker?
Have a great weekend,
