When daytime temperatures drop into the 60s and nights get a little chilly, I refer to that as “puzzle weather”. There is something rather peaceful about working on a puzzle in the evenings – maybe with some music playing quietly in the background. I also enjoy a good game of Scrabble or if we have a group, Cards Against Humanity.
Let’s prepare for quiet evenings at home by setting out a puzzle for the family to work on. Maybe pull out a couple of games to play, too. I’m going to clear space on our coffee table for the Scrabble board. We have a fairly nice version which spins to face each player but take a look at this one:

It’s attractive enough to leave out all the time. I may have to put that on my wish list. I really can’t quite justify that much for a game but we do have a new puzzle is on its way to our house:
Start thinking about fun things to do indoors as the weather gets cooler. If you have kids, ask them for suggestions, too.
Our assignments for Day 5:
- Set up a puzzle for the family to work on. Amazon has lots of great puzzles but you can also usually find them at thrift stores.
- Pull out a couple of games or set out a pack of cards. Turn off the television and bond with your family around the game table.
- Take a look at the printable checklist you made on Day 1 and pick an item or two to work on.
Treat of the day:
Indulge in a new game, puzzle or even a fresh pack of cards then schedule a family game night within the next few days. Bake some cookies or buy a favorite snack item.
