Gratitude #17 - quiet

It is deliciously quiet in my neck of the woods! Since I love being in my own head with my own thoughts, I'm crazy about the quiet. Right now all I hear is the cat fountain bubbling, the refrigerator running, and the HVAC system gently pinging because the heat turned off. No TV. No traffic. No blah-blah-blah. Love it!

I love the quiet. Sometimes the quiet is disturbed by a pack of howling coyotes in the summer and the ice floes in the winter but it's still better than traffic.

I thought about moving somewhere lower-maintenance but the thought that I might end up having to hear people-type-things made me re-think my idea.

I'm jealous. I can hardly ever get any quiet. If its not noisy student neighbours, it's someone deciding that Sunday morning is the perfect time to do some really noisy DIY, or get out a hedge trimmer. If by some miracle everything else is quiet then I can hear the bloody knocking pipes of the next door neighbour's water system.

Gah! Sometimes I want to book into one of those flotation tanks to get some quiet even just for an hour!

There is definitely some serious lawn-mowing around here in the summer, but that doesn't bother me as much as, say, someone else's music at a level where I'm being forced to listen to it. I've always wanted to try a floatation tank.

(HA HA, perfect icon!)

Heh, whenever I catch myself sounding like a grouchy old biddy I think "get off my lawn". :D
