Thing-a-Day – January 17 – complete a jigsaw puzzle
Day 17 of the Thing-a-Day Challenge
Materials: evening of cooking and relaxing with friends; jigsaw puzzle; fierce determination to finish the puzzle in one night
I spent two days in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, and today there was little time to make much (except food – lots of cooking!). However, someone brought along a jigsaw puzzle. At first it seemed like a wildly optimistic activity for one night, since it had 550 pieces. But once we got rolling, we knew we had to finish it. Also, it was a wonderful image depicting the many varieties of shells in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, so the details of the picture were engrossing as well and spurred us on to finish.
