"It's a. . .
beautiful day in the neighborhood," and beautiful weather for little boys to -
enjoy the sunshine,
play in the dirt,
eat out of doors,
play with friends,
listen to the breezes in the trees and birds chirping, bask in the 60+ weather and sunshine, chat with neighbor friends, gaze at the little green sprouts popping up in the yard and be surrounded by lousy music played by a group of kids who might be aspiring to start their own rock band! Last week I came to the conclusion that the only thing worse than living in the same cul-de-sac with this not so musically talented group was the fact that they are rhythmically challenged as well! So, as they sit armed with a drum set and electric guitars in a garage (which reverberates every sound) and flip through radio stations, they get so messed up in the beat that I think I am going to have a nervous break down! I came very close to going over there and asking them if they had to play such disgusting music, could I please show them how to do it correctly?! I am beginning to think summer will be extremely loooong if we have these "concerts" for hours upon end as we now do on Saturdays. Thankfully I have gotten to know the "host" family (The other musicians appear from other parts of the subdivision.) and feel that maybe we can peacefully work out some "quiet times" if need be. It can get very frustrating when you are in your own house, playing your own music and still cannot drown out the thumping of the drums!
So, as for today, "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood," and it's a very quiet day in the neighborhood! I think we'll have lunch outside, too and enjoy a Southern Spring that is on its way.
