I want to be on good terms with our neighbors. We’re not on bad terms, just not on any terms at all. Smiles and waves are exchanged with the nice lady across the street, but that’s it. There are no children on our street. The houses are filled with elderly retired folks or 9-5 work force folks.
It’d be nice to know the folks that live on our block. I’d like to be able to let the lady who lives across the street know we’re going on vacation and would she mind keeping an eye on the house? Or be able to greet the new guys who moved in next door by name.
What do you think is the best way to meet neighbors? I thought about making brownies and taking some over to our neighbors with the kids. Then I thought that might be too weird. I’m not sure I’d eat something made by a person I didn’t know. If there were kids, it’s be easier. Children tend to be icebreakers. But there aren’t any children on our street, so that’s not an option.
Any suggestions? Do you know your neighbors well?
