Have you seen your neighbor lately

With the weather getting warmer and Spring right around the corner, you'll be getting outside more, working on your yard and perhaps garden. Have you noticed you haven't seen much of your neighbors during the winter? Maybe its time to get to know them again.

The other day I saw one of my neighbors and I thought I haven't talked or really even seen her all winter. It's sad. We get all hulled up in the winter and don't get out as much. With me having a baby I really haven't seen anyone. I stayed in as much as possible with the baby. Trying too keep out as many germs and illnesses as possible.

I thought I should get out and say Hi to them again. My kids usually are out playing with the neighbor kids all spring, summer and fall. But winter time they aren't outside as much.

You could take over some:
Fresh bread
Soda pop with a tag "Just Poppin' by to say Hi"
Popcorn or caramel popcorn with the same tag
Some seeds like peas, carrots, beans, etc
If you like to garden and so does your neighbor suggest a pumpkin growing contest or a giant sunflower growing contest, have a BBQ at the end of summer to celebrate the winner

There are so many ideas out there so get out and meet your neighbor again.


  1. Thats so true. When we lived up North wintertime was like moving away. One final meal together until the first buds of spring show up. Hopefully my neighbor reads this and I've got some cookies coming my way... ;o)

    How's your mama by the way?

    My best, Lynn
