Puzzles, part 2

Image

Marley and Makyah,

my M & M grandies,

love wearing summer clothes,

despite outside freezing temperatures!

We chose one of ten puzzles left in

collection of brightly colored choices.

This one was seashells!

My first puzzle was built

of 150 pieces in only two hours

with current guy friend who bought

the multiple puzzles box for me

to share with grandchildren.

It was a bunch of kayaks! 

The second one was constructed

with my grandson, Micah of

an Italian narrow canal.

My friends who suggested

here from blogging community

the activity is like taking an

“escape vacation.” 

Their shared memories of doing 

this pastime with family in

childhood looked like fun.

I may have inspired some to

purchase a puzzle or engage

in another long forgotten activity.

Hope you are having a lovely season,

no matter which one ~  

please share how you like

to pass the time away!

Box of 12 puzzles:  worked on

first one with my guy friend.

We completed second one 

with my little shadow,

Micah, who turns a 

nice even, Big 8

while his great uncle

(grand uncle Rich)

Yes, fifty years

between the two!

Today is ~

February 27, 2017.

Happy Monday to you!

Are you working on any

“inside home” projects?

Memories of a perpetual

card table set up in our 

family room with one 

very tough puzzle:

Imagine a month of 

completing a 

Jackson

Pollack

puzzle!!

Winter’s emerging pale colors

Image

Gray, slate blue, baby blue

~~~ Skies ~~~

Swath of peach melba,

just enough to barely see.

Grainy green, scratchy tan grass.

Branches reaching, touching

corner of brilliant pine green.

Just a thought or two to

set your mind at ease.

Mild weather with

no storms ahead.
