JIGSAW JOURNEY

Standard

JIGSAW JOURNEY

Here’s how it’s been going on the Jigsaw Puzzle Journey.

I finally finished the one called “Tasty Treats”, yesterday evening. It took me about 18 days, of working on it for a couple hours a day. I wanted to give up a few times, but kept going. Sometimes, I’d only find 4 or 5 pieces in a session. It was pretty hard. I did have a little help toward the end from my husband, who found quite a few of the pieces. He kept saying – you can do it, keep going. 🙂 We thought a piece was missing. In the photo (if you enlarge it), you can see where the missing piece should go, but we did find it later, under some stuff on the table. Now, I’ll tear it down, and start a new one. Here’s the finished “Tasty Treats’ one.

This next one is by the same puzzle people, and is called “Cereal Boxes”. It is another 1,000 piece puzzle. I imagine it will be just as huge, and difficult as the last two were. Well, I better get started on it. I’ll let you know when I finish! 🙂 Meanwhile, happy puzzling for those who love to do jigsaw puzzles.

P.S. I did get a brand new puzzle for Mother’s Day, from my daughter & family. It will be next on the table, and is only 750 pieces! 🙂

GHOST RULES – GIVE & TAKE

GHOST RULES – GIVE & TAKE

Toy Ghost

Puzzle piece that was missing – now found

So, most of you know I love talking about ghosts, and writing about my true ghost stories. Well, my resident ghost has been up to silly tricks again. Ghost likes to take things for awhile, then gives them back. There’s been lots of incidents like this in the past. Most of these are just harmless things to take notice of, or be annoyed by them.

This latest one is of the ‘scratch your head – why’ variety. Here’s the scene:

The living room – we find that a cat toy is missing. This is a cotton-stuffed, fabric toy that I made myself, which we roll in catnip every few days. It is Cricket’s favorite toy. She can lick it, roll on it, kick it, and go to kitty dreamland hugging it. It is always on the little extra couch we have in here, and is never moved from there. She doesn’t ever move it. Now, it is gone. Just gone. We’ve looked under the couch, under the blankets and pillows, on the floor, and in every room in the house, just to make sure. It is gone. It’s been missing for at least a week or so. She has other catnip toys, but you can tell that for her, it’s just not the same. (sigh)

The kitchen – yesterday we find a jigsaw puzzle piece in the floor. There’s nothing strange about that, as I’ve been working the puzzles for months, now, and sometimes a piece falls on the floor. I pick it up right away.This puzzle piece, however, is the one piece that was missing from the puzzle I told you about awhile back…the one of the Sugar Skull. It was a brand new puzzle, but this piece came up missing. I’ve worked at least 4 other puzzles since finishing that one. There weren’t any missing pieces of those, and no extra ones either.

We’ve walked through the kitchen probably a million times, and had not seen this one piece just laying there in the middle of the floor. It would have been impossible not to notice it. But…yesterday, there it was, just as if it wanted us to notice it. I was like, how can this be? It’s been missing the whole time, and now, here it is! Then, I remembered…our Ghost. Um-hmm, go figure.

Missing cat toy = take away

Find missing puzzle piece = give something back to us.

Maybe one of these days Ghost will give back the cat toy…but, what will Ghost take away next?

*** I would show you a photo of the missing cat toy, but it’s gone missing!

Cricket wants her toy back
