Working Puzzles, Making Friends...
Thursday, January 30, 2020
This was a fun one and it's finally done!
I enjoy working on puzzles at the library and meeting others who enjoy the same (although I've found that some people sit at the puzzle table simply because they want to meet people and that's fine by me). Doing a puzzle at our public library does have its drawbacks.
-When you are done for the day all pieces that are not connected to at least one other piece have to go back in the box. So when you are putting that border together you really want to have time to assemble it after locating all of the edges. Once the border is in place I usually shuffle through the box to find particulars rather than dumping all the pieces out to sort which would end up being a waste of time because I can't stay all day you know.
-Some people put pieces in the wrong places and you can spend all your time trying to correct that issue.
-If you aren't there to put the last piece of the puzzle in place you don't get to see the finished puzzle.
I can live with all of these negative issues. I've made some really good friends at the puzzle table and hope to continue to do so.
Sometimes when my daughters are done looking for reading materials they sit down and join me so they've met my friends, too!
Keep moving forward! — Kohl
