It was unplanned, but one day during this wonderful holiday week, this 1000-piece puzzle was started. Through sickness among all of us here, a happy holiday, and mischeviousness of one of the dogs, the puzzle was completed just before the trip back to North Carolina. Except, of course, for the one missing piece, which appeared nearly chewed in one of the dogs' mouth a few days ago. We just didn't know which piece until today.
Nora loved it and declared that it should be put together with puzzle glue, and that will happen. Perhaps a tiny picture of Milo will fill the gap where the missing piece belongs. Maybe it will hang in Nora's room.
I am so sad that everyone is gone. It's the same every year. My house is too quiet and my heart is aching. Family, all of them, are so precious.
