Tea in the Hood

Saturday was our neighborhood's annual tea party. Usually, it is sometime during the Christmas season but this year, it was held in honor of Valentine's Day. About 17 neighbor ladies from three streets showed up which was a decent turnout. I was one of the hostesses this year but didn't do much other than deliver the invitations, make cookie bars and bring the tea. I didn't even have to help clean up!

This is a great way to meet your neighbors and learn of new things going on in the neighborhood. This year, we learned that some neighbors still have roof rats. It sounds like the people who have the problems with them are the ones who have citrus and/or fruit trees in their yards. I wonder what the dogs would do if they saw a rat.
