It's turned into a family joke that no matter how hard I try to gather everything up, some item or another always slips through the cracks. This year was no exception. Earlier this week I was sitting at the kitchen table eating dinner with Hubby Tony when I happened to glance over at the windows that overlooking the deck. The window farthest to the right still had an ornament hanging from the latch.
And then this afternoon I was walking through the living room when I saw a glint of silver on the carpet. I stopped and picked up a tiny two inch piece of tree garland, which had somehow survived the weekly room vacuuming.
I wonder if I'm really done for the year now.
