31 Days of Gratitude: Day 2

Day 2:  Grateful for the neighborhood where we live. It used to be a huge suburban movie theater with a vast parking lot and some type of scrap metal business.  About 6 years ago it was transformed into a "walkable" neighborhood. We walk everywhere -- Target, the movies, dry cleaners, urgent care, nail salon, beauty salon, restaurants, bakeries, Paper Source (!!!), etc.  Living here makes it possible to have only one car. In fact, our car sits in the garage on most days.

Our backyard is a tiny deck overlooking an ally. As such, many folks would not be happy living here and would not like living in a commercial/retail area. There's also a ton of construction going on, including right smack in front of our town home. It's a mess but, I love being surrounded by people and, on a nice day, will find a bench and just people watch. Can't beat the show!

MOOD WHEN DONE = grateful!!

  1. I think you are on to something here, J.B. I'd love to be a walk away from anything my heart desires. A really short drive is what I have, to a wonderful walk! I'm awfully grateful for that. and for this reminder to be grateful everyday! thanks...

  2. Sounds like you have a 'near perfect' location ! I LOVE the idea of walking to do your everyday errands, but have a real need to have unoccupied space around me. Talk about direct opposites colliding. Ah well, so glad you have been able to find your happy place for your retirement years.
