My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Good Neighbors

Blog Prompt: Today is “Good Neighbor Day.” Make a list of everything you can do to be a good neighbor for those who live around you.

We have the best next door neighbors and we try to help each other all that we can. When I moved in, I had gotten a trailer load of mulch for my flower beds and my neighbor came over to help me spread it. When either of us take vacations, we water each other’s plants. We give a key to each other’s house in case something happens. We collect each other's mail if we need to. One time I forgot to pay my natural gas bill and asked my neighbor to go tell them that we were on vacation and would pay as soon as we got back (we live in a very small town). Instead, they went and paid the bill! We have gone shopping and out to eat together. When it snowed, they were great to come out and play in the snow with us! Mainly we are there for each other when we need each other but we don’t smother each other by wanting to do everything together. I couldn't ask for better neighbors!

Can I come be your neighbor :). Only I don't think I would be a very good one since I tend to be a bit forgetful.
