I saw this picture last week and loved it because I agree with all of them. Well, maybe not the blades on ice because I get chills just thinking about things scraping on ice. It probably goes back to when we were little and my brother would go into great detail about two front teeth and a giant ice cube - just trying to give me the willies. It worked. And I can not forget that horribly vivid image he painted into my brain.
Anyway, it got me to thinking about other nice sounds.
I've always loved the "sounds of the home".
Coffee (tea for me!) dripping.
Heaters kicking on.
I love all those sounds. They are soothing and soft and just give me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside!
Well, until the dryer buzzes and my heart leaps out of my chest and I break out into a cold sweat. Then my warm fuzzies turn into cold dryer lint. Speaking of dryer lint, do you clean out your lint trap after every load? I do it after every 2 or 3. Husby tells me I don't do it enough. It seems like EVERY SINGLE TIME he goes to empty the dryer (which is probably once every few weeks), I have just washed a load of something furry and the lint trap is puffed out to capacity. Then he lectures me and I tell him it's never like that. Only when he checks.
Just call me Elmer. Elmer Fudd.
And I know what you're all thinking. "What kind of furry things is this lady drying?!"
Well, I can assure you that it is not rabbits. We have furry towels. You'd think from the amount of lint they produce they would be as thin as paper by now, but somehow, they are not. The produce even more furr each time I wash them. It's a sheer and utter mystery of my life.
So! Sounds that I love. Here are some more of my favorites.
When you turn funny and your hip does that little "spring" sound. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Maybe I have a special hip.
Pitter patter of tiny feet.
Pen on paper.
Fingernails on a cash register.
Laughter. Especially from my children.
The turn of the keys in the door when Husby comes home and his soft, handsome voice that soothes my soul saying, "Hi Family! I'm home!"
These are a few of my very favorite sounds in all of the land. What are some of your favorites?
