Had our block party tonight. I was really impressed with the turnout—I wasn’t sure people were going to come out of their holes on a Friday night to get to know their neighbors. As it happens, there were quite a few people there. It was really cool getting to meet and visit with our neighbors. We met people we’ve never even seen before, and got to actually have conversations with people we had only ever waved to in the past. I hope we have more of these block parties—maybe make it a three-or-four-times-a-year thing. At the very least, I’m thinking that when Halloween rolls around in a few weeks (and weather permitting—we’ve been having some squirrely East Texas weather this October!), I’m going to sit outside with the other folks who just set up a table down by the road. That way, I’ll have some company for the giving of the candy and I’ll get to see all the kids who are walking by.

Off now to bed and rest. I’m once again worn down to a nub at the end of the week. Shouldn’t I be getting used to the work grind by now?
