Monday, we had a guy come and clean our carpets in the living room and dining room. We have a cream colored carpet with a rose pattern on it. It’s pretty…not really us, but really nice carpet that was here before we moved in. It isn’t very practical for having small kids though. We have been kind of negligent in keeping it cleaned as it has been about 3 years since we did it last. The accumulation of spills and spots has turned the carpet a really gross color of brown, and it has gotten so bad that you can’t even use a spot cleaner because it leaves a lighter clean spot. Anyway, we picked up all the little things we could find and vacuumed half-heartedly – I figured that the carpet guy would do a more thorough job anyway. So he arrived and started vacuuming…and to my surprise, collecting tiny things from the floor that we must have missed. By the end of his job, he had a bowl full of more than 40 tiny things that he had found. Last night while I was making dinner I decided to draw a few of them. Max picked out what he thought I should draw.
