A Welcome

Oh my, it has been cold here! And I've been staying inside next to the fire working on this and that. So I really haven't had much of a chance to go meet the neighbors and see how they liked their new home. I hoped they were getting settled in okay.

But, earlier in the week, we had a break in the winter weather. So I thought I would bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies and take some over to the neighbors.

Kind of like a 'Welcome to the Neighborhood'.

I decided to use the good china. It's just so pretty and cheery! And the cookies looked so good on the plate. Can't you just hear them screaming, "Eat Me!" ??


As I approached the neighbor's house, I didn't see their car. I wondered if anyone was home. I knocked, but no one came to the door. Maybe they had gone to the Market. Or they were out visiting.....

I decided to leave the plate of cookies on the chair by the door (after I moved the box). That way the neighbors would be sure to find them when they came back home.


It looked like they had been busy unpacking. Moving boxes and paper were here and there.

There was a lovely wreath hanging by the door.
And the horse shoe hanging over the door - Oh My, how it glistened in the sunshine! I wondered if it was gold ??

I wondered if it came from the Unicorn that had pulled the Moving Van ??


I turned around to leave when I realized I had forgotten to leave a note! How would the neighbors know who had brought the cookies?? So I ran back home and grabbed a pen and parchment. And jotted down this little verse.

Welcome to the neighborhood.
We're so glad to see you're here!

Welcome to the WildWoods
Where everyone is Dear!

{your neighbors in the gray house}


I do hope the neighbors enjoyed the cookies!
