On a Walmart trip with my 7 year old son, I had the brilliant idea that we should buy a puzzle. I thought it would be fun to do it together, and since we have a whole summer coming up, and sitting in air conditioning with a puzzle seemed rather pleasant.

So we chose one.

The thing is, we chose a puzzle based on the picture, which seems like an excellent idea, except we didn’t actually take the number of pieces into account, so we now have a 2000 piece puzzle with a very nice picture that I’m working on alone.

DSC04012It’s actually rather relaxing! When I’m sorting through some writing knot in my head, or if I’m just feeling rather empty of ideas, I stare at the pieces and see what I can make fit.

I’m getting somewhere with it, as you can see. Slowly but surely! This means, however, that we can’t have anyone over for dinner until I finish it, because it’s absolutely massive and it’s taking up 3/4 of the table, with the center leaf in! (We’ve been eating in a little hunkered family group on one end of the table…)

It’s rather relaxing, and instead of dealing with real life, I’ve been working on my puzzle. So this is what I’m up to when not clattering away fingers to keyboard. Way less exciting than you thought, no?

If you know me personally and happen to be in the area, stop by and sit down with some sky. I’d love you forever. 😉
