Though they may be slightly frustrating at times.

     Today I spent several hours in a hospital waiting room (My grandma has been sick, hence the lack of posts the past week) putting together a puzzle. I think this is probably just another example of how I’m  trying to (somewhat pathetically) relive my lost childhood, though it was nice to get a way from books for awhile, since I’ve been reading nonstop since probably the beginning of the summer (though I am thoroughly enjoying both Jane Austen and Sherlock Holmes).Puzzle-historical-map-1639

    I don’t know what it is, but I like bright, colorful, whimsical things intended for children, which is why I love Candy Land. I know I should have outgrown such things a long time ago, but truth be told there are a lot of things that I should have outgrown that I haven’t. I still believe in happy endings after all. I remember playing this game as a kid, and I always dreamed I could go there and meet the characters. I would make up whole stories about my adventures there… it became much more than a game. I’m also reminded of a Christmas display at the mall that my mother always had to keep me from trying to get into. Not that  I would have done damage, I just wanted to explore.
I wonder where my Candy Land game is. I’m going to have to find that soon. Until then I will settle for enjoying the lovely spring weather.
