Grandson Nathaniel had a long weekend off from college, but he needed to get back early for his work-study job. We crammed a lot of visiting into the 41 hours that he was here.
We were given a marvelous gift from blogger Linda – a jigsaw puzzle made from December photos from my blog. What fun it was! We talked as we put pieces in. Even John found a few pieces, and he is known for never finding any.
As usual, we tended to do most of our talking around the dinner table. David had to work both days Nathaniel was here. We all had breakfast together, and later we sat with David as he ate dinner when he came home. Both days we wandered around consignment shops with Nathaniel. He loves looking at vintage wares and often finds marvelous treasures. This time he bought nothing, and John and I brought home seven little items. Four were Christmas-themed, marked down after the holidays.
Before the three fellows set off to take Nathaniel back (a five-hour round trip), I asked them to pose with the puzzle. Any excuse for a photo! I’ve always longed for a Christmas puzzle to work in December, and now we have it. I predict this will be an annual event that we will look forward to.
