It's really neat to get to know my area (i.e. who plays honky-tonk piano in the evenings, which house has the the cute kids who play dress up in the golden sunset light, etc).
There are a few highlights on my walks, houses I particularly enjoy because they have good-smelling flowers or pretty garden gates or beautiful bay windows and the like.
So the other day, I went around, leaving anonymous notes describing what I loved about their house along with a neighbor-award of a light-bulb vase.
It was so fun imagining of what they'd think when they found it!
Whilst attempting to hang the fourth and last one, I got caught by the actual home owner! We had a lovely chat and in exchange for my present, he gave me a beautiful history book on our area.
It was a lovely experience overall but one part got me thinking... On every note, I added a message about how I wasn't a weirdo who was gonna keep leaving them notes or anything. That addition was contrary to my nature and detracted from the whimsy but I felt it was sadly necessary.
What do you think? If someone left you an anonymous present without saying that last part, would it creep you out? Or would you not think twice about it?
