Day 25: Stalking my neighborhood?

Today was a lot like yesterday.  I’ve been trying not to write about the corona virus because it’s everywhere and I like reading about other topics.  Today I was thinking about social distancing and the variety of ways I’m seeing it.    I’m seeing many people staying at home, others only visit immediate family, while others traveled to a friend’s house in another state to ‘quarantine’ together.  I feel like I’m doing my part in staying home.  I’m getting outside in the fresh air and definitely enjoying the warmish weather we’ve had for the last 2 days.  I’m appreciating the time I’m getting with my family.

I’m also learning a little more about some people in my neighborhood.  Like, the lady with the striped yoga pants takes at least 3 walks per day.  The older gentleman walks with his dog in the morning, but by himself in the afternoon.  The neighbors behind me never come outside.  They have 3 kids.  What could they possibly be doing?  The neighbors beside me take family walks early in the day.  The 2 boys ride their bikes often.  Are they friends or brothers, I’m guessing brothers but I’m not sure.

Hmmm, now that I think about it, am I learning about these people or stalking them…not quite sure.

  1. Haha! I love the ending! On our walk yesterday, a neighbour said, “Oh are you new to the neighbourhood?” To which we responded, “No we have lived here 3 years now!” haha! Clearly we need to get to know our neighbours when this is all over with!

  2. I absolutely love your observations. So funny that you were peaking in windows and now keeping track of others inside/outside habits. My go to greeting when I see people outside is to ask them what number walk they are on today

  3. Hmmm…let’s go with learning. Hopefully in the summer everyone will emerge more ready to interact and, (dare I say?) ready to be a more tight-knit community.

    Nosy neighborhoods, in my experience, are caring ones. =)

  4. This post is funny! Love the yoga pants lady reference. We have a few of those as well. We have the walking man that walks everyday from 7:20 to 8:20. We have the usual dog walkers that pass through yards hoping no one will see them “trespassing”. I guess a lot goes on when you aren’t home.
