Hershey’s Puzzle In Progress

Hershey’s Moments – MasterPieces – 1000 pieces

I’m having a great time with this puzzle, it’s exactly what I need at exactly the right time. I’m working on the more difficult sections first – like all the large Hershey’s bars and darker areas. When sorting it I could tell it would be harder than it looks, and so I decided to get the more challenging stuff out of the way early. Now when it’s closer to being completed the sections that are brighter and more entertaining will be what’s left. My strategy may change the further into it I go, but that’s where I am for now.

Life is unbelievably stressful right now, and even if it wasn’t, my brain seems to think anxiety is always the way to go – even when things are calmer. Sometimes I just need to go and sit in front of my puzzle board and get away from almost everything; I put on my headphones, turn the music WAY up and only think about shapes, colors, text, and fitting pieces together.

If I didn’t have puzzles I fear life would be much darker for me. Thank God for puzzles!

    Just back from vacation and catching up on your posts.
    I foresee a trip to the store for chocolate! I bet it will be a great picture when finished.
    I agree – puzzles provide a wonderful mental getaway from our busy, stressful lives.

        Oops forgot to mention – we were in Sarasota and I found a teeny 100 piece puzzle of Sarasota. I have a feeling the micro pieces will be maddening!
