Spotlight Friday: puzzled

As kid I always was surrounded by puzzles. I loved doing puzzles. As I got older I learned to entertain myself with word puzzles. But I always came back to jigsaw puzzles, more pieces the better. Jigsaw puzzles had something calming for me.

When I was a teenager my mom used to start big jigsaw puzzles on the dining or kitchen table, I mean big as in thousands of pieces. Someone of the family always joined at some point and the conversation was started. When it was time for lunch or dinner, she just threw a tablecloth on the puzzle, we ate and after that went back to puzzling.

I started this in my family early on, and I love this time with my kids where you can just sit together create something together and either have quiet time and listen to music or get into really good conversations.

We just finished a 750 piece the other day, even our cat got into it. The next day the kids already asked for the next puzzle. I guess I have to find some more.

So this made me look for anything puzzle related on Zibbet.
