Monday goodies...

     Homemade Cambodian egg rolls that Sarin brought in to work to celebrate her birthday. Way too good! (My boss and coworkers decided she should have a birthday every month!)

     A delicious walk home with lower 70s, a nice breeze, mostly cloudy and just fantastic--especially for the middle of June! What a blessing!

     Eeee, and I finally finished my internal story illustration for 'Vigil' then had to celebrate by making a computer wallpaper version and a puzzle that I just spent the last quarter-hour putting together. Wonderful to have that finished (and no more Poser-induced hair-tearing!)
Where I'm At:
book 3: ch 21/pg 163
Emotional Status:

Sounds like a delightful day for a Monday! Hopefully the rest of the week will follow along as smoothly.

Did you make the puzzle with a computer program?

It certainly was. Quite the treat--especially as Shelley brought in some really moist, delicious cake as well. Felt like a Friday!

I do. I love it--I can use any image and make puzzles from it. =)

I'm presuming it's not a jigsaw puzzle but the slidey kind? Yay for finishing illustrations and good food!

*is late, yes, apologises*

Not the slidey kind. I am abysmal at those and would probably spend weeks tearing my hair out!

Here, have a (shrunken) screenshot (That's my 'Bedtime' coloring-book style illustration I'm using.)
The only 'cheat' I use is that I play with all the pieces right-way up (top to the top, not just picture-side facing up, as they're always like that). Otherwise I'd wear myself out having to constantly click with the mouse to rotate them. It's all drag-and-drop and pieces 'clicking' together and the fun of the 'applause' sound effect (and timer count) when it's all done. I love the software way too much since I can use my own images and happily piece together puzzles of t'DoL, Geren, Hileko, etc. And I can choose how many pieces the puzzle will be, every time I play. I just have this compulsive-addict inability to stop once I've started one (which means I must now go and assemble the one I used for the screencap!)

*hugs* Not as late as I am, since my company filter banned me from LJ today *spithissgrowl*

I wouldn't blame you! *abysmal at them too*

Ooooh... Looks quite nice, though I admit I'm not much the puzzling type, alas. I hope you've managed to assemble the picture quickly! ^-^ 'pologies for distracting you, though I definitely hope that you enjoyed the distraction!

I certainly enjoyed the distraction! I haven't been doing puzzles much lately since I've been spending so much time editing. Nice to take a little 'break.'
