My first attempt to do a kindness act was thwarted, as someone had already put my neighbors' garbage bins back after trash had been collected :)). The anonymous RAKer put ours back as well. :)))
Wanted to do today's RAKs on our block, for World Kindness Day, & thanks to our mailman (who mixed up the mail & delivered a few neighbors' mail to us by mistake) I was able to, by taking their mail to them.
Then, one neighbor came over & very sheepishly asked if I would bird/house-sit for her again when they go away for a few days at the end of the month. I recently did this when they went on vacation to Italy, so she felt funny asking again so soon (family business this time, not vacay). I could see she was struggling, so I smiled & jumped in & told her I would be happy to before she asked....little did she know she was doing me a favor by allowing me to fulfill my desire to do neighbor RAKs today. :)))))
Lovin' this kindness game!!
Poor Hook ( their parrot), he is not a happy camper when they go away...he takes a good few days you warm up to me & calm down. Maybe he will remember me from recent caretaking.
