Wonderful Neighbors

Hello there - how's the weather where you are? Here it's a little cold. Not near as cold as earlier in the week for which I am quite grateful. It had been quite bitter.
Anyway, I mentioned yesterday that I had snow to shovel. It was around 5 inches - not so bad at all. And before I had the chance to get outside to begin clearing it all away, our neighbor had shoveled our sidewalk. I had to smile. We do this with these neighbors. We shovel each others sidewalks. It's sort of an unspoken thing. One storm we do it for them and the next storm we find ours done. It's fun to do something for someone right? Just a little thing to let them know you appreciate them, you're happy they're your neighbor. A little random act of kindness.
I did go out and shovel that and while I was shoveling I decided I was going to bring something by just to say thank you - just because they wouldn't expect it.  I baked up some cookies today (a new recipe my nephew's wife told me I needed to try) and threw a dozen or so in a little plastic bowl, wrapped with some cellophane and attached this tag I made last night.
I'd found a shovel in the Silhouette store and cut that out. I attached it to a Papertrey Ink tag (Journal Card #6). Then I cut out a few "Thank You"'s using a WPlus9 die (Hand Lettered Thanks).and glued them together.
I just ran next door with my cookies and my neighbor kept saying "You didn't have to do that". And of course I know I didn't but it was fun and made her smile - so mission accomplished..
Hope you're having a good one. Thanks for stopping by.
