Hello there! It’s been another month of especially vigorous puzzling at the Puzzle Ambassador’s Residence, and right after pausing my stopwatch to chase the cat up the stairs and grab a slobber-soaked puzzle piece out of his jaw, I had to wonder whether his contributions were actually helping or hindering my puzzling on the whole.
Ahhhh! The joy of relaxing mindfulness. Just as multi-colored gradients, geometric puzzles share that calming experience. They’re the perfect kind of sort-as-you-go puzzle because the colors are easy to identify.

Happy April fellow puzzlers! The sun is shining, the cold is slowly sidestepping itself and allowing the sun to shine brightly and warmly. I don’t know about you, but whether the sun is shining, the wind is blowing, or it's pouring rain I’m always down to puzzle.

Do you want to know what always, without fail, elevates my puzzling experience?
I’ve always been an outdoorsy, nature-loving gal who tries to do what I can to protect the environment.
