30 Before 30 Progress


9. Walk around my neighborhood (I've never done this since I moved to CA).
I finally completed this one! I thought it would be one of the easiest but it's actually hard to find the time to walk around your neighborhood instead of driving it. On Saturday, October 26, I finally found the time. I look a 25 minute walk around my neighborhood. I tried to walk down the side streets that I never really drive and make a loop back to my house.

During my walk, I noticed a few things about my neighbors. Most of them seem to take really good care of their lawns. They have the grass mowed and it's very green. They have plants and trees and have good curb appeal. They also have some really nice iron fences. I was so inspired by the walk, I came home and pulled some weeds up from my yard. I really need to stay on it but it's hard to do everything by ones self. I would like to get a new iron fence around my house but I'm pretty for sure that would be pricey.

I think the next thing I really need to do is stain or paint my privacy fence. I've wanted to do this all summer long but it's just SO hot here in the summer. Maybe now that the days are getting a little cooler (aka from 90-100 to 75-85). I'll have to look into this and recruit a friend. I'm sure it would get done a lot faster. Since some of the boards are newer than others, I think my best might be to paint them. Hmm... decisions.

Anyways, I've marked another thing off my list and I feel I know a little bit more about my neighbors.

I keep meaning to go on a walk with Iz around our neighborhood and show him around!

Walkies are so much fun! We always still lemons and grapefruits off our neighbours trees - I'm sure they love us.
