Jigsaw Puzzles

I hope you all had a great New Year’s celebrating yesterday. This is how I spent my new year’s eve. In the beginning of the evening I was watching TV. Among other I watched the fireworks in Hong Kong at Victoria Harbour live on BBC. Even if I’m not a big fan of fireworks I must say it was spectacular. BBC showed it for, I think, 6-7 minutes. I just googled more about the fire works and it says it last for about 25-30 minutes. My dog would have hated it. He even hates the few fireworks seen and heard around here where we live.

Anyway, when I got tired of watching TV I decided to do some jigsaw puzzles online. I got inspired by reading a blog friend’s posting about her and her family doing a 1000 pieces puzzle, not a online one.

Wednesday night I puzzled online for the first time. Wow, how many beautiful pictures there are and different categories to choose from. Also you can choose what style you want, a classic, elegent plus many more.I happened to find a puzzle with the O’Connell street, Dublin view. As I have visited Dublin (in 1995) and been walking the street it was clear that I’d choose it. You can choose how many cuts you want so for the O’Connell I chose 150 pieces. Yesterday I was looking for more familiar views and found this one. The Old Town Square in Prague. I think I was there in either in 1999 or 2000. This time I chose a cut for 200 pieces. My husband thinks it’s a waste of time. Maybe my he is afraid I will get addicted ! Well, I find it relaxing and listen to music at the same time. I already looked for more street views from other countries I have visited I want to do. Maybe for my next one I will choose to have one in 300 cuts !
