Weekend delights:

     It was finally sunny enough when I was home that I could try out the eclipse glasses and binoculars I bought for August. That was neat, especially since I could see sunspots on the sun with the binoculars!

     On Saturday morning I got over to the natural foods coop to get ingredients for homemade granola. While I was there, to my delight I discovered they had queso fresco--the young white Mexican cheese quite similar to the Puerto Rican one, and which my aunt got me spoiled on down in Florida. Of course I had to get one, and it was delicious. (Hoping to make the granola next weekend.)

     Saturday afternoon I forgot just how crazy long the extended edition version of Return of the King is, with the result that I pedaled 37 miles on my exercise bike and was quite tired the rest of the day and rather tired on Sunday too. That tied my highest daily total and was the highest I've done in a single session!

     Happiness is finally finishing a recalcitrant illustration and getting to enjoy the fact by making it into a puzzle in my puzzle software. Such was my pleasure Sunday afternoon with my alternate version of 'Cold Hillside.'

That is some miles you got in on the bike.
You have puzzle software? How does it work?

The software can take any picture and make it into a puzzle you do on the computer. You choose how many pieces it has and how they're shaped/how hard they are. I am unable to stop a puzzle once I've started one, so I keep them 350 pieces and under! (the pieces would get too tiny if there were more than 500 anyway).
