There is More to Life Than Cooking

I guess I am the opposite of most people.  No surprise there at all though, on many levels.  Most people are spending more time in the kitchen, where I am actually spending less time in the kitchen as we are all locked up inside our homes.  Mostly because Larry is working from home these days, so he is not taking his lunch into work with him, meaning we have MORE leftovers we have to get through.  So I am actually cooking less than usual.  What am I doing instead?  Anything and everything I can to keep what’s left of my sanity.  We do our daily walks with Vinnie.  Hopefully you are enjoying the pictures from our walks.  I work on little projects around the house.  We have been doing our virtual visits.  I read.  And then there have been the puzzles.  We just finished our second lockdown puzzle, with more to come.


We chose the dragonfly puzzle for this round.  It was a lot more challenging than we were expecting it to be because of the iridescence of the pieces.  It was hard on our eyes, especially mine.  I could only work on it for short periods of a time.


The puzzle master and his assistant Nicodemus (Nicky D) hard at work, although they both look a little distracted at the moment.  Another challenge to this puzzle, as with the other one as well, was that our assistant wanted to do the puzzle on her terms, and often scattered the pieces in all different directions, challenging us to find them.  And we wonder how we loose pieces. HMMMMM!  🙂


Finished at last.  Even though time wise, we spent about the same amount of time on this puzzle as we did the other one, Puzzle Me This it seemed more like an eternity to finish this one.  Or maybe that is just time itself that is just seemingly ticking away at a snail’s pace.


Happy Easter or Passover, whichever one you celebrate.  Stay safe and stay well Everyone!

  1. I never go anywhere, unless it’s out to eat! I don’t do that more than once or twice a month, so I’m not missing it yet. But I do miss going to the bookstore for coffee. I love your puzzle. My family did an under the sea puzzle that we got for Christmas, but we finished it long before this virus started happening. Nicky D. is cute!
