BLOGGING A2Z CHALLENGE LETTER Q

QUIETNESS

Before we moved on our almost 3 acres on the outskirts of a country bumpkin town, we lived in an apartment in the city. As I stated on previous posts our neighbors were obnoxious and noisy. I understand with so many people you will hear noise but it was excessive. We were miserable and stressed. The people above us was constantly stomping. It was never-ending

We were finally able to get out of there.

It is so nice to sit here in my chair and not hear stomping above me or kids yelling etc. I hear 'natural' sounds. Dogs bark occasionally. Cars pass by on the highway. People mowing their lawns.  Birds are chirping. But otherwise it is so quiet, especially at night.

I know some people like background noise like the TV or the radio. Not me. I like the quiet.

We've been here almost 3 years.

At night, we lay our heads on our pillows and I listen.  It is quiet and I just smile to myself.

Sometimes, I whisper to Hubby, "Listen!"

The first few times he would listen and ask curiously, "What?"

My reply, "That's just it! Quietness!"

  1. I love it! I was 18 when we moved out of the city. Living in a quiet village is so amazingly soothing to the soul... Until Sunday mornings, when people get down to mowing the lawn at 7am :D But still, there is nothing like it.

    1. I understand what you are saying. What is interesting, one of our neighbors mow the lawn at 8 pm sometimes.

  2. I live in a setting similar to yours and I love it. My father was one who always had his radio on to go to sleep. My mother had to adjust, but she did.
