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!
