Whew! Now that was a busy few days. Culminating with the best condo gathering to date! The weather cooperated (although a bit cool for some), my little family joined in so little people and grandpeople had some fun interacting, and if we saw some some residents strolling by, we went out and brought them in! It was fun! Three couples had just purchased and moved in during the month of June.
I'm hoping we don't become known as the Adult Alcoholic Condo Community! Saturday another neighbor is hosting a coffee and donut party in our Fireside Room. Getting to know each other is vital to have a "community." Sometimes you just need a little help from your friends. Whether a ride to the airport or someone to water your plants while you are away. Lots of tasks that are just too small to call your children or handyperson. But a neighborly hand can make all the difference.
Sharing conversation and opinions and ideas with others, with whom I only have my living arrangement in common, has been a nice boost. Intelligent and funny people are all around me. A few curmudgeons as well, but it turns out they are not party people!!!
