My 4th Puzzle and a RAT!

I got another puzzle done!   I am really addicted to these things.  I need to quit doing them because I won’t have any to do this winter.  Does anyone ever do a puzzle again?  I would think that would still be fun.  I got this one at a swap meet here in town for $1.  I was surprised it actually had all the pieces to it, the guy promised me it did, but you know how that goes!  I bought another one from him too for $1, it has 750 pieces in it.  My next puzzle is going to be a Wyland Wall puzzle, it’s 550 pieces and is round. 


We had a rat in the house last night, our cat Jenny brought it in.  I was sleeping really good about 3 in the morning and I heard this little squeal squeaky noise.  I got up and Jenny was running our a piece of furniture trying to find her catch.  I moved the furniture away from the wall and this big RAT ran under the bed.  So then I saw it run from the back wall to another piece of furniture.  Jenny ran under the bed, then tried to run out of the room.  I shut the door on her, but she wasn’t interested in catching it at all. She stayed under the bed and went to sleep.  So Mark got a tennis show and the rat was under a big pillow laying on the floor, he got it cornered and it moved out from under the pillow and he slammed it with the tennis shoe.


I had to take a picture of it so I could post on my blog.  Isn’t that nasty? 


The problem is that Jenny is really an outside cat, but we have this really nice cat door and she can come and go.  So she goes outside and hunts and brings animals in.  I am really tired of it and not sure what to do.  I could leave her outside all the time, but then I would have to remember to keep her food out and make sure the other animals don’t get it.  Or we could make her an inside cat, the problem with that is she likes to go outside, so she would howl and cry all the time at night and drive me crazy.  So I don’t really know what to do with her. 

Anyone need a cat that is a good RAT killer?

A Third Puzzle – Complete

I got another puzzle at Wal-mart!  This was pretty easy to do.  I am really getting into these puzzles.  Anyone else like them out there?  Hello, anyone out there?

Another Puzzle!

I decided to buy a puzzle at Wal-mart, so I got one that looked fairly easy, with lots of things I could pick out, instead of just one big landscape or all blue sea or sky. I started on it last night and finished it today. It was fun, I think these puzzles are becoming an obsession with me!

It’s Puzzle Time!

I have decided I like puzzles.  I have never done puzzles before and I just started buying some for Kasey.  But they are really big puzzle pieces, 26 pieces, floor size, or I even have a 100 piece puzzle for him.  He’s doing pretty good with them and will keep the puzzle out on the table until he finishes it.  We’ve bought a couple of puzzles at garages sales and they’ve had a few pieces missing.  It’s actually kinda funny because you do all the work and then have pieces missing.  Oh, well!

So I borrowed a puzzle from a friend, I thought it was really pretty, a quilt with flowers and a wicker chair.  Well, it had a few pieces missing too.  I can’t take credit for finishing the puzzle though because Mark did a bunch of it.

I think puzzles is going to become my new obsession, and I’ll post each one I complete here on my blog.  It’ll make it feel like an accomplishment.
