When was the last time you purchased a jigsaw puzzle? I can’t remember when I did, which has led me to consider doing this for our prompt this week.
- Go to the store and buy a 1000 piece puzzle.
- Set out the pieces on your dining room table. If you don’t have a usable table for this purpose, set up a card table.
- Make it your goal to get the outside pieces in place the first night. Then see how long it takes you to fill in the middle.
The great thing about doing a puzzle together is you can’t be on social media at the same time, and it lends time for you to actually talk.
For a more creative way to enjoy a jigsaw puzzle together, try this idea.
Summer is not obligatory. We can start an infernally hard jigsaw puzzle in June with the knowledge that, if there are enough rainy days, we may just finish it by Labor Day, but if not, there’s no harm, no penalty. We may have better things to do.
