Pathway to Puzzling...

From down along the banks of the Ottawa River.

Feb. 11, 2020

The Ottawa river is located in Ontario, Canada. Having said that I thought perhaps you would enjoy the fun that goes on in the winter on the frozen river. The photo is of myself and our rehome puggle enjoying the sport of ice-fishing. Ok so we are great spectators...

In the summer the activity that goes on is boating, folks canoeing, jet skiing, fishing, and sometimes swimming close to the edge. Every year there is a Fishing Contest that attracts many of the locals. The dock provides a venue where people gather for the weekend and have a good time.  Now readers you have an understanding of the title for this blog.

My sister Linda found that I enjoyed doing the small feline puzzles so much that she dared to move onto sending another parcel containing small desserts puzzles. How could I resist? They were so delicious to create. The chocolate chip cookie was my favorite. It reminded me it was time for tea. :)

Often I would see these little gems crop up in the Jigsaw Puzzle Connections FaceBook group and the reviews were great to read. The members have certainly opened my eyes to the wide variety, the degree of difficulty, the different puzzle companies and the beautiful image of each puzzle. I’ve been in both awe and intimidated. The impression you get when scrolling through the page is how much people enjoy puzzling. So with that thought in mind I would not give up.

It was a treat how the puzzle pieces did not take long to put together. Also, the quality of the cardboard was pretty darn good. Every completed image was easy to pick up without falling apart.These little puzzles were fun to do, a pleasure to look at when complete. I’d say Linda Richard scored another positive to peaking my interest in puzzling! Could she be onto something? Stay tuned….

When my sister Linda asked me if I would like to blog about my puzzle experience I was not too certain as to how to write about this topic. You see I am a novice puzzler. The Facebook jigsaw puzzle Group I belong to has some pretty amazing folks in it. Their work on 1,000 piece puzzles or larger is fascinating.This has me doubting if I could rise to the occasion. But does it mean placing such high expectations? 

There are some members in Jigsaw Puzzle Connections Facebook Group that find such enjoyment in doing puzzles that are 100, 200 and 350 pieces. The images are simply beautiful. This FaceBook group grows every day. It is wonderful to see people from all over the world, different ages and unique interests in the style of puzzles  they post. Truly, they enjoy the outcome of their work as do the other members.

When I was young puzzles took too much patience. That was a trait lacking in my life. Our Aunt used to say, “patience is a virtue…” well I certainly did not possess this quality. It was something that had to be worked on all my life. The puzzles we had back in our childhood were too boring for me. Those little pieces of cardboard would slip out of place, somehow there were other pieces that landed on the floor. Hmmmm...I wonder...winks. 

So as you can tell puzzles were not high on the list. Now felines - they were my passion! I’d rescue any lost feline that purred it’s way onto our property.

Little did I know that my love for the cat became a source of my renewed interest in puzzles. Did I just say that???? 

 Kittens by the Dozen  was assembed by my sister Linda and if you want to read her review just click on that link.

The small pictures you see throughout this post are my first introduction back into the puzzling world. As you can see they are so delightful. How could I not want to put them together? The best part is that it was a great introduction to Linda’s love of puzzles.

Happy puzzling, Dorothy
