I have nothing newsworthy to blog about but I thought of dusting my blog with a little post so as to try to have at least something to blog about.  I've pulled a few loops on my rug but nothing worthy of showing, just worked a little on the background. I haven't walked outdoors except to the communal mailbox to fetch the mail.  I admire those who walk even in cold weather. I put on almost 5 pounds this winter so far. I'm not complaining just because...

I've been somewhat inactive for the most part as the sky has been gloomy for days it seems. I guess you could say I've been in hibernation. I need sunshine to function on all my cylinders. lol... I've been doing what is necessary every day but  I've wasted a lot of time just watching some of my favorite YouTube videos. I avoid Facebook and Instagram because I feel they have nothing to offer me personally,   except for making me want more things that I do not need or want anymore as I'm satisfied with what I already have and at 76,  I'm in the winter of my life and I know that material thing won't bring me lasting happiness anyway. By the grace of God, my health is still good except for the usual old age minor discomforts. I'm already yearning for spring and new life.

Here is a picture of the usual after-Christmas puzzle. It measures 38.5 X 26.5 inches. I know that making puzzles is not everyone's cup of tea but I enjoy the challenge. 

Edited: This puzzle only has 1000 pieces and not 2000 as previously mentioned. The other one that I did was a 2000-piece puzzle which I was supposed to show here but somehow couldn't upload the photo because my iPhone was low on battery and I then forgot to upload it before publishing my post.

I think those Cats of the World kind of look ridiculously cute. I started to work on this 1000-piece puzzle after Christmas and finished it in four days. It looked easy but I found it was harder than it looked because some of the pieces were of different sizes and shapes and didn't all fit in straight lines. It was bought secondhand at the church fundraiser and I thought that there were pieces missing but in the end, all the pieces were there. 

I meant to post this photo in my last post but totally forgot about it. 

Wishing you all a peaceful day. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I hope that the sun is shining where you are.

Hugs, Julia
