Sunshine’s Macro Monday #39
So, here’s the thing…
For the first time in years – many years – I am gravitating towards a (so far) unfinished 750 piece jigsaw puzzle spread out on one end of our dining room table. Almost every day.
As our new viral reality marches on, my mind (or actually my overly active imagination…) flies off in so many different directions that…sometimes…focusing on anything in the here and now becomes practically impossible.
That is…until friends offered us their new…put together and then taken apart…jigsaw puzzle. Which they’ve owned for at least 15 years and never opened until now. Who had time to do puzzles?
They assured us it was clean…
We wiped it down with a sanitizing wipe and let it dry after we finished it.
The sight of all those shapes and colors and patterns that Will Fit Together…
I realized it’s something I Can Do. While Staying Home.
Hence the gravitating…all it takes is a glance at the disordered mess of puzzle pieces…spread out on an old tray. Right next to a picture beginning to take shape. It pulls me over. I sit down…just for a minute…I’ll find that corner piece. I think I see it. No. Maybe for the other edge. I’ll try this one.
An hour later…two sides done. I’m exhausted. In a good way.
Interesting fun fact: putting a puzzle together can clear your head.
I highly recommend it.
