Red Canoe puzzle

This is one of the reasons I haven’t gotten a lot of reading done recently. This 1,000 piece puzzle was extremely difficult, and, while we usually finish a 500 piece puzzle in a week and a 1,000 in two, this one took us almost three weeks!

    I can’t understand the appeal of doing puzzles. I feel the same way about crosswords, sudoku, reading James Patterson or playing solitaire. Just time killers. I would rather read or watch movies.

    • I understand, Steve, but for us, it’s something we do together and we enjoy the challenge. I can’t read all the time, and this is a welcome break. I have to be in the right mood for a movie.

    That is a lovely puzzle, and looks very hard, although it has been years since I have done a puzzle. I would enjoy it if there was anyone around to do it with me.

    • It was one of the hardest we’ve done, Tracy, with all the sky and water looking alike on the small pieces. The rocks were no cinch, either. We like working on them together. We split the puzzle in half width-wise and each do “our side”. We almost always have one in progress.

    Nice one. We used to do puzzles like that, including one of Monet’s gardens. My parents always had a puzzle going.

  4. I’m with Steve. I’d rather be reading or watching a movie. But my mother loved doing puzzles. I used to bring her a puzzle when she first entered the Alzheimer’s Unit and she would complete it in a few days. Later, it would take her a week. And later…she just couldn’t complete a puzzle any more.
