It’s a Puzzle

This is the puzzle we are working

A challenging jigsaw puzzle


This thousand piece puzzle really appealed to me because of the many different cats. I bought the puzzle second hand at a yard sale. We have the most of the edge pieces put together but there are three pieces we haven’t found. These pieces are cut in unique shapes and we think that it’s possible that we will find one of the pieces but two that are missing are the bottom, left corner pieces. They are very dark green grass and there isn’t any dark green grass piece left. We have two of the black cats together but we have a long way to go to complete the puzzle.

It’s fun in a box. “We” are four friends who spend time together working the puzzles. We have interesting, relaxed conversations as we put the puzzle together. We often work on “subsets” in the puzzle and we help each other find the colors that go in those subsets. It’s teamwork!

We usually end our puzzle session with cocoa and cookies. The puzzle itself affects us the same way as potato chips affect people, –we want to fit in one more puzzle piece before we quit for the session.

When we’re done with one, we’ll choose another interesting puzzle to work on.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    It surprising what good conversations can happen when friends spend time together over a jigsaw puzzle. It would take so much longer for one person to do alone, and it would drive a person crazy.
