Wash a car.

Almost every person likes it when their car is clean. Maybe one of your neighbors is not able to wash their car. Why not offer to do it for them?

Make some thank you cards.

In many neighborhoods, there are people who do things for the community. Give them a thank you card that you had made to brighten their day!

Bake a cake

If you know it is a neighbor's birthday, how about baking them a special surprise? They would really appreciate it!


Opinion

There are 22 other options. However, I believe that these 3 made the most sense.

As for washing a car… You want your car or truck to last, don't you? A person needs car upkeep.

As for thank you notes… A couple of years ago, my neighbor gave me something. I gave her a thank you. She thanked me for thanking her as she said it is always nice to have the thank you in writing.

As for birthday cakes, I wish I knew how to bake. Believe me, I have always wanted to bake a cake for my loved ones but did not know how. I am not good with baking. I can cook really good but not bake. While growing up, my loved ones never wanted me near the oven for fear of getting hurt.

This book is nice and practical.

I give this book a 5-star rating.

I love baking but not cooking a meal! Go figure?

I share my baking 'treats' with my 94 year old neighbour, with a 'cuppa' at her house (and sometimes mine). She loves home baked cakes, muffins, slices as she once was a baker for her large tribe of kids.

All council run Libraries should display this book, either to read on site or borrow and maybe our communities can come together as they did in the last century.
I still bake birthday cakes for my adult children and my grand-children. There is always a 'favourite' request and I oblige with love.
