It’s my mom’s 75th birthday. The house was quiet when we arrived. Mom was working on a huge puzzle and half was not even done. Doesn’t she know we are having a surprise birthday for her the next day!!! No, she had no idea. That puzzle took up her whole dining room table.
Not only did this puzzle not get done before family arrived the next day, but it became the center of our family time together. Everyone including Brody took a shot at finding puzzle pieces that fit. Did I mention this was a 1000 piece puzzle with a lot of the same colors…which makes it very hard! Mom already had the easiest part done…..the edge! Do you work the edge of a puzzle first?
You sure have to have patience for this type of puzzle. My sister took one look at it and said, “nope, not going to help”…..but she did end of helping with it, along with neighbors, nieces, friends. My mom had a wonderful birthday indeed!
What do you do for family time on a hot summer day?
