Take A Break

When I want to clear my mind or take a break between tasks there are a couple things I like to do. First of all I am a reader. It is very rare for me not to have 3 or 4 books from the library usually lined up to be read. Second I like to do puzzles. I enjoy many kinds of puzzles from jigsaw ones laid out on the dining room table to software like Zuma and Tetris. My favorite puzzles for some time now have been Sudoku. Sometimes I want to breeze through easy ones and at other times I really want to challenge my thinking skills with something more difficult.

I wanted to share with you where I get my puzzles. Some time ago I discovered the site krazydad.com. The puzzles are printable and donations are accepted. It is has lots of sudoku puzzles, mazes, a puzzle form called slitherlink and more.

This is quite an interesting site with puzzles, a blog, screensavers and a bio of the creator. There is even a fun little tool in his freebies section where you can make your own kaleidoscope.
Here is one I made from a scarf I have available in my shop on Etsy. Take the time to check out this site. I don't think you will be disappointed and you might even find more ways to relax.

  1. Your scarves are beautiful. I'll try the KrazyDad site... looks like fun! A good friend of mine lives just up the road from you in Payson. I love Arizona!

  2. I love jigsaw puzzles. My uncle, who was a mathematician, and I used to sit for hours, when I was a kid, and play. Great fun - fond memories! Probably why I love them so

  3. Oh My Gosh - Jigsaw Puzzles! I haven't put one together in years. We used to have a cabin in Lake Arrowhead, CA and it seems we were always working on one up there. I miss that!

  4. Yay for puzzles! I loved doing them, in my pre-kid life... though it seems the cats were ALWAYS taking one of the pieces to play kitty hockey with. When we moved from our last place, there were a good dozen pieces underneath the bookcases! Thanks for sharing.
