I am a puzzler. I love puzzling!
My mama got me a crazy hard puzzle when Sweet P was little. I tried to work on it once, or twice, but there was never a spot out of the reach of chubby little hands that I could commandeer long enough to make the whole thing.
I broke it out the day Sweet P finished school, thinking the kids and I could work on it together and finish it up in a few days. They're pretty good at puzzling, too, but I sort of overestimated their skills. This isn't your traditional puzzle. It's a photomosaic. 1000 pieces.
Little M tried every so often to place a piece, but quickly gave up. Periodically, one of them would come up to me and say, "You're making good progress, Mama!" So sweet.
Anyway, it took longer than I thought it would, but today I finished it.
And we all shared a Joyful Moment. They're sitting on a kitchen chair trying to look triumphant, although it kind of looks like they're riding a roller coaster the way they're leaning.
It looks like he's, ya know, leaning. (Name the movie!!)
And Joyful Moment #2 (as if finishing a Winnie the Pooh puzzle wasn't enough, right?!). Last time I was at Trader Joe's, I couldn't find my mostest favoritest unsulfured apricots. They told me there were a discontinued item. I almost cried. Went there for some milk tonight and--yahoo!--they're back!!! It's not a good photo, but I had other things to do. Like eat half a pound of dried apricots.
Life is good.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments that aren't at all puzzling!!
