Cleaning the Living Room

Yesterday I removed three nails from the trim above my living room window. They had held up a sheet in lieu of a more traditional window treatment, but the sheet had been down for, oh I don't know, maybe a year?

Last night we put up the Christmas tree. I found busy weevils snacking on a gold spray-painted pasta ornament I had made with my students 8 years ago. Because I'm sentimental, I:

a) air-hosed it off and hung it from a light fixture.
b) repaired it with glue and dried beans.
c) thanked God for the chance to get rid of it, and junked it along with the box.

You decide.

I would totally go for C. But, then again I wouldn't be suprised to find it cleaned and hanging from your living room fan :). Jan

I guess C because (a)I've never seen pasta hanging from a light fixture and (b)I've never seen a pasta creation fixed with beans. :)

I vote for C. But then, I'm not a very sentimental soul.

B. is the answer...and something my resourceful, sentimental sister-in-law would do. :)

You can breathe a sigh of relief. The answer is C! I threw that ornament in the trash so fast, those weevils got windburn. I'm sentimental, but I have my limits.
