Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day

Posted by Brittany

When we returned home we didn’t quite feel that we’d done our best to be neighborly today, so we took all four dogs for a walk down the private road that makes up our subdivision. It’s about a mile long, and since we’re the first house our overall stroll was about two miles. We live in a country-fied pocket of a suburban area, and preserving its beauty is one of the best things we can do for our neighbors and ourselves, so along the way we stopped and picked up any trash we found. By the end of our travels the dogs were dog-tired, and we’d filled an entire grocery bag with trash! We even got to nod at a couple of neighbors as they drove by — waving would have been preferable, but when you’re walking four big dogs it’s not always an option!

If you’re in the Washington D.C area and you have some time on your hands tomorrow, I strongly recommend that you see the orchid exhibit for National Flower Day. Check back then to see how we’re celebrating!
