Puzzling It Out

I've been a little remiss, partly because I've had some fun times with the computer during the past week, so things computerish have been hit and miss. We've also been getting to finishing the back yard overall now that the weather is better.

Speaking of weather, did you know that I absolutely needed a winter coat on Monday morning? Did you also know that I was hot in T + shorts on Thursday when we had our warmest day since mid September? Did you know that it could snow this weekend?

Anyway, what I really want to post is a few pics of the boy and me finishing the jigsaw puzzle that we gave home for his birthday two months ago. This was the previous week when he stayed home from school due to a cough. Fortunately, he recovered quickly and was fine the next day.





He goes more by the shapes of the pieces while I try to relate to the picture. Neither of us quite understands how the other person does it. But we did do it. Together.

Yay! Good job! I haven't done a puzzle in ages. It might be a fun thing to do with my granddaughter when she gets here in a month.

Well done! My small people like puzzles too. When Max finishes a puzzle he breaks it all up and does it again.... eight or more times!!!!

I love jigsaw puzzles, and now I have an app so I can do a puzzle anytime I want without the mess. He looks very proud of finishing!

Great teamwork. That's a nice colourful puzzle.

We had a bit of .. thick rain here the other day. I'm glad it's warming up again.

Snow!!! Looks like you better get another puzzle to keep you busy while you're snowed-in?

Puzzles are fun times with the Grandkids. A great hobby for the snowy months.

I'm a big jigsaw fan and have seen that particular one on Amazon and think it looks like a nice one to do. Well done. The weather here in the UK is unpredictable to say the least.
