Lots of folks in the area dont have power. I can only imagine the cabin fever they must be experiencing. While I was in the store the other day i happened to see a small ( 300 piece) jigsaw puzzle. I thought to myself " You're 40+ years old and you've NEVER started a jigsaw puzzle and actually FINISHED IT. We're in for a big snowstorm...just DO IT ! "
I made the impulse buy and got it. That was only 1/2 of the battle. When I got it home and opened the bag, I had a sudden panic attack seeing all the pieces laid out in complete chaos on my kitchen table.
I started by putting the most obviously recognizable parts together. ( remember ..first jigsaw puzzle EVER)
I foolishly did NOT start with the borders which I've since learned is the most efficient method to attack suck a task. **note to self.
Im proud to say that after just over 5 hours of tedious frustration.., I DID IT.. I FINISHED MY FIRST JIGSAW PUZZLE ALL BY MY BIG BOY SELF.
Heres a photo of the finished product :
