Diane was making a fresh pot of coffee earlier, after dinner. as i was putting food away, i thought to myself, not only does that coffee smell yummy, but the noise it makes as it brews, is a noise i so enjoy hearing! which got me to thinking, how many other daily sounds appeal to me that i take for granted, and guess what? i have come up with a list.
these are some of my favorite sounds in the world;
1. the rolling simmer of a soup on the stove.
2. the clippity clop sound of horse's hooves on pavement or gravel.
3. the crackling noises from a fireplace or campfire.
4. babies cooing and laughing.
5. the sound of rain on a tin roof.
6. the quiet stillness of a snowfall.
7. the sound of rain when you're in the car.
8. new high heel dress shoes in a hallway.
9. the wind howling like there's no tomorrow.
10. splashes of water in a pool.
11. typing noise from a keyboard.
12. bubble paper.
13. when dogs try to speak.
14. a thunderstorm, the louder, the better.
15. sound of the ocean.
16. the rhythmic sound of a train in the distance.
17. flatulence. i find it hysterically funny.
18. my children and grandson's voices.
19. the sound of lawn mowers in the neighborhood.
20. music. all kinds.
there are so many more but I'll save them for another post. these sounds, are not only enjoyable to me, but make me feel comfort as i have associated them all with fond memories. what are your favorite sounds?

how poetic....I did a post on this very thing and I really, really enjoyed it. You know something else that I just love hearing?
there's a bird that we used to have at our feeders when we lived in the country and it was called a "cowbird". It was chocolate brown and black and it had the most awesome sound it would make while sitting in the trees. It sounded like water dropping and landing in a pool..it was so cool to hear. I'll look around the internet and see if I can come up with a clip of it and post it sometime...

Thanks for your sweet comment at my blog.

I love music too, and the sound of my family's laughter. I miss them so!

Oh the high heel shoes sound brought back a hilarious memory that I think I'll share soon on my blog.

I love the sound of rain, and also of shower water. Both soothing sounds. Most of all, I love the sound of a fire, the crackling noises of the wood.

Love this post!

Rain on the roof is my favorite. And living in a house with 3 boys, I agree wholeheartedly with #17!
