I've never been a big movie-watcher. I would never put a movie on by choice, I would always pick a tv-show. So it's no surprise I hadn't seen Fargo before. My husband loves watching movies and watches a ton without me, so I had thought he would've watched it already, but he hadn't, so we made a cozy evening of it.
I figured, since this is apparently a must-watch movie for wintertime, that it would be a story to warm yourself up to. Something romantic or family-oriented. Boy, was I wrong, huh!
When I read the back of DVD case, it said it was about a kidnapping gone wrong, murder and a pregnant detective trying to figure everything out. So I thought, a mystery thriller or something. Wrong again!
In the end I did like the movie. It was just weird enough to still be funny and the accents are awesome! Happy I did watch it!
When I was a kid, I used to love puzzles. But I just didn't make any time for it once I got older. Now that I have a daughter who loves puzzling as well, I get to do it a bit more often, but they're always just 40 piece-puzzles, with cartoon characters on them.
So I figured for this Bucket List Item, I'd pick out a puzzle for me alone. My husband watches a ton of tv shows that I don't like, so I figured I'd use this time to finish the puzzle. What surprised me a bit was how hard it was to find a winter-themed puzzle for adults! I did manage to find this one though:
I wanted to make this puzzle on the dining room table but I couldn't leave it there for days, and since the puzzle was too big to finish in one sitting, I had to find a solution. So I found this:
It's a puzzle mat! You can roll it open, make your puzzle on it and then when you're done for the day, just roll it back up and put it away. This is probably something everyone knows about already, but I hadn't heard of it until I found it and I thought it was great!
I ended up working on the puzzle for about 4 days before I finished it. And I've already gotten another puzzle as a Christmas present, so I guess I can just keep going!
