It's a tad windy tonight. As I have been sitting here, trying to catch up on blog land a strong gust blew something somewhere creating a house rattling thud.
I called on the man of the house to check things out. One of the pleasures of having a teenage boy around. It was nothing in my small yard so I am assuming it was the neighbors. I will rest easy.
Speaking of neighbors - I live in a townhouse nestled snugly between two others. I had a thought the other night that just on the other side of my walls live two families that I do not know. Two families with their own struggles, drama, joys, and hardships. I been hearing an infant cry occasionally, when I have been in the downstairs bathroom. (For some reason that is the only room where I hear anything happening next door.) Today, the family was outside and I realized they had a baby sometime in the past month or so. I have lived her for 5 months and never noticed she was pregnant though I see her everyday when the bus drops off her son.
I try not to feel guilty for being less than neighborly. Perhaps I should make an effort to get to know them. First I need to get past them using the guest parking spot in front of my house as a personal space for their 3rd car.
Something just slammed outside again. I am going to assume it was a neighbors back door. I will ignore it just like I ignore so many other sounds. Instead I will listen to the wind through my open window and tap tap tap of the rain that has just started to fall.
