Brain Chatter and Calm

There is no TV, no music, no extraneous noise in the house right now.  I can hear the whirr of the ceiling fan, and the windows are open, so an occasional street noise floats in.  Sometimes, the quiet is so blessed, so heaven sent. I was sitting outside, but it was cool, and I decided to move in.  It would be pleasant outside, if I had to be there. I am just a cold woosey.

I am grateful for so many things:  I have good family and friends. I have a job I enjoy. I have a house in which to live, and transportation. I can pick my food choices, for the most part, without worry. I can pay my taxes.

I have plenty of activities which I enjoy: knitting, reading, being involved in NASW, and being on the board of Catholic Family Service, Inc .  I am a dues paying member of the Heritage Fiber Guild and the Llano Estacado Audubon Society, although my involvement in both are minimal.   I take classes through the Osher Life Long Learning Institute at Texas Tech University   I try to attend the monthly meeting of the Barnes and Noble Mystery Book Club

I enjoy following the sporting events at Texas Tech University, specifically the Lady Raiders Basketball team, and I follow the football team. I had tried to follow softball, but that did not work for me.  Maybe, with the new coach, I should try again.

I am still and always will be a Red Sox fan and a Yankee fan  I rarely watch the NBA games, simply because I am only a Celtics fan f and their games are rarely shown in this TV market. I have been a long time NASCAR fan  This is an endearing and enduring gift from Lisenby, for which I am so thankful.

I am sure there is more that life could offer. Yet, I am so blessed with everything I have.  Thank you to my family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances for your contribution to my life.
