This morning as I sipped my Amaretto tea and listen to the rain fall on the metal awning over the deck and listening to the birds chirp, I recall my hubby finally making one good compliment about our new community and that is that ” it is so quiet.” It is very nice and quiet in the early mornings and during the evenings.
Being able to meet neighbors and chat once in a while has been a delightful adventure for me. I say adventure because I was raised in the city of St. Louis, use to talking to neighbors all the time. Then raised our children in a very rural area, nearest neighbor was about a quarter mile away. Now I have the luxury of quietness like in the country but also the opportunity to chat with neighbors once more.
