Puzzle for a Rainy Day

Jigsaw puzzles can be a great way to pass time on a rainy day (or rainy week as the case may be). With both time and rain in abundance, I figured there is no better time than the present so I biked down to the local thrift shop to snatch up a puzzle. One thousand pieces for $.50 (not bad), however the pieces kind of smell like smoke (not good). The scene is of a beach, with trees, people sunbathing, waves, and lots of sky. Anyone hankering for a challenge, I'll set aside all the sky pieces for you.

Speaking of puzzles, I ran across this one the other day in my internet meanderings. It is simple but challenging. I'm somewhat ashamed to say that it took me the better part of an hour to solve although I did solve it. Anyone familiar with tangrams (Mrs. Doran alums, I'm looking at you here) should have a hoot of a time with this one.

I say, let it rain!

Time and a puzzle!!! I'm jeolous. I absolutely love puzzles. I tend to loose steam when the sky is the only part left too. Have fun :) ---emily aka The Nevada Junior 2nd Place Puzzle Contest Winner 1992

I haven't seen a puzzle in well over a year, and yours was the second one in the same day.

Ok, here's the real question: What do you do when you finish a puzzle. I spent a good couple of days finishing a big puzzle with Jenn and once we were done she wanted to take it all apart and put it back in the box. I just can't bring myself to do that after investing my time.

I don't know if anyone else has menioned this to you Wren, but that tan-looking piece over there on the left definitely goes together with that other tan-looking piece one to the top and middle. Also I'm pretty sure that some of those blue ones are sky pieces. You thank me later with a check in the mail. :)
