Monday?

The weekend got away from me, and now work is... work.

So I will do another drive by and share what I did for another online group.

I've been working on a jigsaw puzzle for the last 6 or 7 weeks. Not fervently, just while I wait for coffee or dinner (at 7 weeks it's 20 pieces a day). It feels engaging without being in front of a screen, you know?

Guanajuato, Mexico. Never heard of it until I got the puzzle. Anyway, about a week or two into it I finished the basilica in the front and realized that I was missing a piece. Ugh!

I persevered. I figured that I lost the piece. I've been doing it on the peninsula in the kitchen so at any point a random piece could have fallen into the trash or hit the floor where it could have been eaten by the dog, or batted around the house by the cat. I was already invested, I was finishing what I could.

I did that today. Proud but frustrated. I debated drawing a smiley face on my counter in the void for a few minutes.

Then I went back to the beginning. I had sorted edges from guts upstairs in front of the TV. I had looked around when I first discovered the piece was AWOL, I have vacuumed a few times since, so I started moving furniture. And there it was, the little 3-outs that had been plaguing me for a month, hiding under a trunk.

And that's my inspiration for you. Keep going, work around the the hole. Flesh out the whole, and then circle back to find what you need to get it done right. Persevere, perform, produce!

And to the Drive-By:

Big Buddy whould be at 73% How are you doing?

How is your Monthly "How I met..." challenge piece going?

Your flash challenge prompt it: Keep going.

And Now I'm back to the grind! Happy day to you all!

Tell me how awesome your week is going to be!
