Neck of the Woods

Today I learn that the phrase “neck of the woods” refers to a narrow region. A “neck” means a narrow stretch of something. So, in my narrow little yard–my neck of the woods–we love to go outside to catch falling leaves.

When I was a little girl, I loved to catch falling leaves. We thought it brought good luck or that a wish might come true if you were able to catch a leaf before it reached the ground.

So that’s what we’re doing in my neck of the woods today.
