National Puzzle Day

Who doesn't like a puzzle?

Well, I'm sure there are people who don't, but I'm not one of them. On the other hand, I don't like every kind of puzzle. I mainly prefer puzzles of the jigsaw variety.

Anyway, Sunday the 29th is National Puzzle Day. According to the article, all kinds of puzzles qualify. Word puzzles, number puzzles, picture puzzles.

For a while, I was using the $1.00 puzzles from Dollar Tree as a reward for getting a certain percentage of my chores on my chore chart done. That worked well for a while, but then I quit needing that incentive. Right now, just seeing the columns and rows of boxes filled in with stickers is enough...

As a result, I have a small stockpile of puzzles: a couple of larger, 1000+ piece puzzles and a half dozen of the smaller Dollar Tree puzzles. Since puzzles are good for the brain as well as for hand/eye coordination and are supposed to be relaxing, I've dug one out and kept it handy.

Here are a couple I put together. They fit the theme of my office kitchen so I sealed 'em up and hung them on the white expanse of hallway leading to the bathroom.

Of course, I've been busy trying to get everything on the chore charts and in the housekeeping planners done, I haven't spent much time relaxing, doing puzzles or anything else.


But it's hard to relax when you have all these things you need to get done. Once January officially ticks over into February, and I get all the annual owning-your-own-business tasks that happen at the start of each new year off my plate, then I'll try to play a little more.

Do you like puzzles? What's your preference? Please share in the comments below.

Do a puzzle of some sort and have a great weekend.
