Perfect Moment Monday: Jigsaw

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.
Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.

====================================
We spent a Thanksgiving week-let (5 days) in Breckenridge, CO, in a lovely mountain home that sleeps all 14 of my family members.

My parents, both my sisters, all our husbands and our children hiked, cooked and ate the roast beast, skied (well, not me), held singalongs, and chatted over this:

Completing a puzzle has become a tradition for such get-togethers. Doing so keeps us up waaaaay past a decent bedtime, and gets us up to see some beautiful sunrises.

Moments at the puzzle table are perfect. (Except for when either Sheri or Tami hide that last. puzzle. piece. You know you do.)

  1. Sounds like a fun weekend. I love doing puzzles although since I have cats (who also like to steal puzzle pieces) I have found a computer puzzle game to play.

  2. I love, love, LOVE puzzles, but you already knew that. ๐Ÿ™‚ So glad you had a great time!

  3. Hiding the last piece sounds pretty fishy. If everyone does that, you’d be missing so many!

  4. I so love puzzles. I have not done one in years though… I may have to pick one up for the next family gathering!!

  5. We love doing puzzles too, especially at Christmastime. Sadly, haven’t done one in a few years. Time to resurrect the tradition, methinks…

  6. Sounds like a good tradition we coul one day copy:-)

    Happy BD in advance, cuz I’m bound to forget tomorrow if I don’t say it now!

  7. We are puzzle-haters here (I know- lame!), but spending quality time way past the bedtime sounds peachy keen…

  12. What a wonderful tradition! When I was a kid my stepmom enjoyed putting together puzzles, but she never had the patience to let the kids join in (I would sit and hold a puzzle piece forever, COMPLETELY unable to figure out where it went). Now I think it might be a fun activity to as a family (when Oscar is MUCH older, of course).

    There was a movie where a family was putting together a puzzle and the father would pick up a pair of scissors and cut the piece fit. It was hilarious, but I can’t remember the name of it.

  13. That’s a great puzzle! The Hubs and I adore puzzles and family game night. His family are all over those sorts of things too. Unfortunately, they live on the other side of the Atlantic and my family look at you as though you’ve suddenly grown an extra head if you suggest anything like a family game or puzzle.

    Thanks for your supportive comment on my blog. It means a lot!

  14. I love Breckenridge! I haven’t been up there for a long time, but I love it there! Looks like ya’ll had fun!

  15. I do love a puzzle.

    The snap of a piece going in correctly is so deeply satisfying. And I love the ghostly vision of a half completed puzzle – if you glance at it you can’t quite tell if the image is arriving or disappearing.

  16. It was killer. But worth it.

    ๐Ÿ™‚

    And yes, you can all hate me for the beauty that is Breckenridge

    ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Dang – that sounds like the perfect Thanksgiving to me! Miss being up in the mountains around the holidays. Spent this year in Kentucky. Not as exciting as it sounds and definitely not as wonderful as being up above 9000ft. So, I am completely jealous – but that’s okay, I don’t begrudge you a perfect moment in the very least. :0)

    Happy belated Birthday!

  18. We do puzzles at the family beach house every summer–I always swear I wont do another–I get frustrated easily ๐Ÿ™‚
    Looks like a MONSTER puzzle!

  19. I’m sorry, I couldn’t read the rest of your post after the word “Breckenridge.”

    My Dad used to take my brother and I there every year. We would eat Doritos for lunch (that’s what happens when mom stays home!) and ski like crazy. It was awesome.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. What a wonderful thanksgiving you had. Yay!

    And HAPPY BIRTHDAY miss lori! I already commented to you on facebook, but there is nothing wrong with wishing someone happy birthday more than once, right?

  21. It was killer. But worth it.

    ๐Ÿ™‚

    And yes, you can all hate me for the beauty that is Breckenridge

    ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. I wish I had the patience for puzzles!

    When we ski, my favorite part of the whole trip is spending nights in the cabin playing board games. Even more than the skiing itself.

    What a perfect holiday!
