Tommy and I are quickly becoming that ‘old married couple’. Eating an early supper…Going to bed at 9:30…Sitting for hours working on puzzles. We have no shame though. We actually quite enjoy our lifestyle, 😉While we were in Colorado on our honeymoon, we bought a 500 piece puzzle of a panoramic mountain view. It’s an absolutely gorgeous picture, and when we bought it, Tommy was concerned that 500 pieces was not going to be enough of a challenge. We looked for a 1000 piece puzzle, but after finding none that we liked, we settled for this one.
It wasn’t until we started to put it together that my dear husband decided this 500 piece puzzle just might be a little challenging after all. You see, the picture itself is challenging because of the blue sky, mountains, andcolorful trees. But then if you look at the pieces themselves, they don’t fit together in a straight line. Instead, they curve all around and match up in the most peculiar ways.It took us a while to even get the border finished. We seriously sorted through the pieces 3 times before finding all the edge pieces. The sneaky little boogers blended right in! But once the border was complete, we were hooked and making quick progress.We had one of our friends, Cameron, (a boy from our youth group) over one evening and it wasn’t long before he was hooked too. He and Tommy spent some time sorting the pieces while I worked on some classwork, and then we all spent time piecing the sections of the puzzle together.A couple evenings later, Katie and Chris came over, and Katie helped Tommy and I complete the puzzle. I’m not going to lie, we were pretty proud of ourselves, and we can’t wait to start another one. But we’re going to enjoy this one for a little bit first, as it sits on display on our ‘puzzle table’. Do you enjoy puzzles? How many pieces do your puzzles usually contain?
In case you were wondering, I did indeed just type this post in order to procrastinate from my AR History homework. Aaaand now it’s my bedtime, so I guess it’ll have to wait until another day. Good thing I have until Sunday, 😉
P.P.S or is it P.S.S ….I can never remember..oh well.
My parents are coming to visit tomorrow evening. They’ll be here for a few days and I couldn’t be more excited to see them and have them see our home now that it’s finally all put together!! Safe travels mom and dad!!! 🙂
