Weekly inspiration No 43 – Patience

Standard

 Patience is a virtue,

as they say….

In the dictionary it says:

the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.

 

 

Many problems wouldn’t be problems,

many irate exchanges,

many road rage incidents,

could be avoided if people had more patience.

 

 

Be patient is sometimes very hard,

specially when we are excited.

This could be me……

 

 

Be always humble, gentle, and patient. Show your love by being tolerant with one another.
(Ephesians 4:2)

Hot tempers cause arguments, but patience brings peace.
(Proverbs 15:18)

 

Nature is patient

 Adopt the pace of nature,

her secret is patience.

Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Have a peaceful and patient day!

With love

from me

How to enjoy a puzzle every step of the way!

Standard

I have been sent a 1000 piece puzzle by Debra to enjoy and to review.

As I love puzzling, I was very happy.

It is a brilliant way to relax,

to practice patience and

look at pictures in real detail.

This time it was ” The Brighton Belle” by Ravensburger.

A Premium Puzzle with Soft Click Technology.

On opening the 1000 pieces were neatly packed in a bag. It included a leaflet showing the artists biography and additional picture for reference. As I can see from the included small catalogue that it is a new addition to the collection 2016.

The Drawing by Trevor Mitchell shows the 1st class service the Brighton Belle used to bring for 40 years. An excellent choice of the picture as it has many different colours and lines to be identified on each puzzle piece.

There is more information about “that the magic of fine rail dining in the 1930s, complete with attentive white jacketed Pullman stewards and those sumptuous surroundings” It will be recreated and the Brighton Belle will be in service again towards the end of 2016. If you like to read more please go to the Brighton Belle website. Rather interesting!

The 1000 pieces are great card quality which you can be sorted easily without the danger of breaking them or the fear of the actual picture coming off.

Through the many different objects and people on the picture one can sort really well into colours and also shapes depending how you as puzzler prefer it. I prefer sorting in shapes first then colours.

The great thing with a Ravensburger, once you find a piece and it fits – it really fits, it really ‘clicks ‘in.  It does have the soft click technology- not just a word- you can really feel it. You do not have to doubt if it is the right place as each piece is individually shaped. This is a big bonus and gives us puzzlers extra help especially for not such established puzzlers. The shapes are distinctive and sometimes you don’t even need to look at the picture so much. While doing piece by piece you feel and see the excellent quality.

See my progress….

My favourite moment is when I put the last piece in, I feel a sense of achievement and I can see the picture in full big glory.

I very much enjoyed doing this puzzle, it didn’t take long and even my children stopped by to put the odd piece in the right place. I can recommend this puzzle to all puzzlers out there and it would be a good start for someone who has never done 1000 pieces.

Enjoy!

Patience

Standard

Patience is a virtue as they say.

“The hardest test in life is having the patience to wait for the right moment.”

I am known for my patience and I was tested last week.

I have tomato plants for the first time and I am watering like crazy and care for them.

They had flowers and the first little tomatoes came out.

I was so proud.

Sept 15 (1)

For a long time they have stayed green.

– All through August and have not changed.

– Mind you we had not so much sun nor heat.

“Be Patient. Good things come to those who wait!”

I asked my sister if I should pick it green and let it ripen indoors.

She advised me to wait a bit longer….

… and guess what … the week after ….

I am so happy to say they are getting colour.

Sept 15 (9)

Thanks to my sister, she will read it here too – ‘Thank you’ –  I waited and was patient.

I will enjoy this tomato more than any other one before.

Be patient!
