Thanks to the generous neighbor for all the firewood for the fire pit. I think we’re fixed for a while, and we’ll certainly enjoy those fires on frosty evenings. In our daughter’s cul-de-sac in Cochran’s Crossing, the neighbors bring out their fire pits on New Year’s Eve, and they celebrate in the circle with food and fun. I’ve never seen it, but it sounds kind of nice; a New Years Eve block party.
Thanks to another neighbor for the cup of hot peppermint tea. That was another pleasant surprise. I love hot tea, but forget to take the time to enjoy it. There are times though, when the simplest things can bring the most joy. Very nice and much appreciated.
Another neighbor called last night with an update on the Tanglebrush neighborhood. Seems they’ve got all their lights up now, and they’re quite spectacular. Joyce drove me over there recently while they were still in the process of decorating, and I have to say, it was pretty amazing. Just goes to show you what a community can do when they’re of one mind, and this brings up the subject for my next post about our own community projects.
