One Piece At A Time

I had planned on writing this post on Friday. I was going to start out by saying that life at our house would be somewhat different over the next several days. No meals would be prepared, laundry would not be done, mail would not be read. Why? I started a puzzle last Thursday night. It was 750 pieces. By Thursday evening, a mere 2 hours after opening the box, I had the border and part of the skyline done. Another couple hours on Friday and I had even more done. I wasn't even going to bother sorting the pieces, like all skilled puzzlers do. I was just working from the box. "Hey! This is easy!", I thought to myself. 3 hours on Saturday and an hour this morning and it was done! I think that's the fastest I had ever done a puzzle of that size. By myself, too! That's right - no help! (The cat tried to rearrange a few pieces.....) The puzzle is called City Lights: Las Vegas Gold II. It's put out by Ceaco Puzzles.

While cleaning today, I decided to get rid of a bunch of my old puzzles. I was going to take them to Goodwill, but I think I'll take them to the hospital. I'm hoping they'll put them in a few waiting rooms. I encourage you to do the same.
