The Joy of Sounds.........

I posted this little picture simply for "eye candy"; it's just some cute little hanging ornaments I've made and are for sale on ebay for a penny and free shipping. But I am very visual and need to see pretty things and try to post pictures with every post. Not always successful.

Anyway, I was thinking this morning while vacuuming, swiffering and mopping. Sounds are also important to me. I don't like loud music and don't watch television but there are certain sounds that I love to hear. One is the sound of a car crunching on gravel roads (just love it). Also the sound of my sound machine which I have turned to rain or a babbling brook most of the time. I also love the roar of the ocean. A baby's cooing while sleeping is heart wrenching to me. But the favorite sound of all for me is the sound of sprinklers. Yes, sprinklers. I love the ch ch ch ch ch and then when it reverses it's chhhhhhhhhh and then back to the ch ch ch ch ch ch. Those were the kind we had on the acre of our other house - big rainbirds sprinklers. This house has the pop up kind that just emit a rain mist like sound, but it is also satisfying to my ear.

Think about it!!


  1. Oh, I agree about the sprinkler. Another one I love, that many would think is obnoxious, is the mower. It just brings back so many thoughts of warm summer days, lazying about with a book and hearing the neighbor's mower off in the distance.

  2. Connie, this is so funny! I love that you find beauty in the mundane.


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
