Yesterday I started a home improvement project I hope to add to in the coming days. I saw on the news that some people were decorating their houses for the amusement of passersby. This is especially helpful, the feeling is, as we are free to take solitary walks but must not actually visit our neighbors. Full disclosure: my neighbors have almost never visited me, although they are certainly welcome to do so in better times. That said, I know various pedestrians pass our humble abode, and I am happy to give them something extra to look at.
When Steven saw me coming down from the attic laden with various stuff, he said, “What are you doing?” However, he approved of the project. I put a Christmas ribbon and some tulips on Frankentree.
I put two scarecrows, a pumpkin, and a skull on the porch,.
I hope to add to my porch in the coming days. I think I have more stuff in my house, but I do not rule out a trip to the dollar store. For one reason, I heard they have toilet paper.
Another thing is putting stuffed toys in your window, so neighborhood kids can go on safari. I immediately put a tiger and lamb in one of my windows. Alas, I could not get a good picture of them.
I also put a couple of teddy bears in an upstairs window. Unfortunately it is raining so I cannot get any more pictures today. However, it is a work in progress. I will post more pictures as my decorations improve. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
Our neighborhood did a treasure hunt with foot high letters in windows to spell out Humboldt( the name of our neighborhood). It was a big hit. Almost a 2 1/2 mile round trip if you followed the letters in order.
That’s awesome! I don’t think my neighborhood is united enough for that sort of thing. I go for daily walks, so I hope to find others putting out some sort of decoration.
They started the idea on the Facebook neighborhood free giveaway page.
