Julia and I have been working a jigsaw puzzle. A friend loaned it to us.
It's a very nice Ravensburger puzzle, 1500 pieces -- a collage, I suppose, of windmills.
Of course, we did the windmills first. Julia did this red one.
I did this one. I enjoy jigsaw puzzles very much, except they now hurt my back, and I can't do them at all without my reading glasses. The trials of old age.
Today we had come this far, and I could smell the end finish line. That's when my puzzle-solving vigor increases and I just can't stop!
We put the last piece in this evening. It's a beautiful thing to behold. I like to leave them up for a couple of days, just to enjoy the elegance and hard work.
On a different note, Adam and Sandy and I went to the fig tree and picked more today, 4.5 lbs. more. Tomorrow I'll have some more pints of preserves. The figs are now very ripe, very sweet. We shared the bush with the birds, of course, and the hornets.
