We have the world’s best neighbor! You might remember that a month or so ago, we had a neighbor issue but that’s resolved. They’re gone! Now, the good neighbors come over and we visit them . . not every day but often. They are absolutely the nicest people. When we mention to someone that these folks live near us and we’ve gotten to be friends with them, all we ever hear is what wonderful folks they are. How was I so lucky as to get her for a neighbor? Don’t go thinking we can talk over the back fence. We are far enough away that we have to get on our little RTVs and drive to each other’s house, but in this part of Texas . . they’re close!
I’ve been giving them eggs and one late afternoon a while back, she called me to meet her at the gate and she gave me homemade chocolate cake and homemade ice cream.
Last weekend, I made a big pot of jambalaya.
I called the neighbor and told her I’d bring some and they could have it for dinner or have it whenever. I took her eggs, a pair of socks I made her for her upcoming birthday, and a big dish of jambalaya. She then gave me a bag of peaches and some apricots that she had put up from their trees, and she gave me beef from cows they had raised (not the cows you see in my pictures). She told me she was just fixing to make a banana cake and they would bring some over to us when it was done. Oh, it was so good! SO very good!
A day or two ago, she brought over a blackberry cake! Yesterday I brought over dinner for them. I think we’re both having a grand time sharing our culinary creations! Life in Texas is pretty darned close to perfect!
