New Neighbors

For the longest time the place next to ours has sat empty. Well, at least for as long as we have lived here (and that's been a couple of years). Hubby and I weren't sure if it needed more repairs than someone was willing to put into it or maybe it was the fact that it was located in the country. Personally, I would have thought that a Country Home would be desirable. But to each his own.

* * * * * * * * * *

And so it sat, through rain, snow and blazing heat of summer. A forlorn little place just waiting for a family to move in and call it Home!

* * * * * * * * * *

One day last week, I noticed a lawn chair sitting outside the door. And a wheelbarrow! Could we possibly be getting new neighbors? Had someone(s) decided to move in??

* * * * * * * * * *

And then yesterday I saw activity by the place. I ran inside to tell Hubby. I wanted us to go over and Welcome them. But he said we should give them a few days to get settled in before we went over.

* * * * * * * * * *

A moving van was pulling away from the place and . . . . is that a Unicorn pulling the wagon? Oh my! This must truly be a magical family that has moved in!

* * * * * * * * * *

I would go offer to help move the boxes, but I don't want to appear to be the 'Nosy Next-door Neighbor'.

* * * * * * * * * *

And so I shall wait till they get unpacked and settled before I go over. Maybe I shall make them a nice batch of cookies or a cake. And I'll drag Hubby along. (I know he is secretly longing to look at their car - he thinks it's a Pierce Arrow!)
