Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the amazing team at The Broke and the Bookish. This week, the theme is an audio freebee. Essentially we could be any topic we wanted as long as it was something to listen to. I had a really hard time with this one! I just recently started listening to audio books and am only on my 2nd one, so I couldn’t do that one for a top 10. I finally decided on my favorite sounds. So in no particular order, here are my 10 favorite sounds.
Cats purring~ is there really anything better than the sound of kitty purrs. They are a sign of love, trust, relaxation, and happiness.
Cheshire snoring~ when he gets into a really deep sleep, little snores escape and they are so sweet!
The wind in the trees~ just rustling the leaves
Food sizzling~ bacon, veggies, it doesn’t matter what it is, just the sound of food sizzling in the pan is amazing
A full orchestra~ I played an instrument for 8 years, so maybe that’s why I love a full orchestra. I also enjoy a string quartet.
Acoustic guitar~ so much of popular music is so electric, but the sound of an acoustic guitar, accompanied by a melodic voice, is still my favorite.
Waves crashing~ when I still lived in Southern California, I would head down to the beach some mornings just to watch the waves and listen to the sound of them crashing on the beach. One of the most soothing things I have ever found.
Carbonation fizzing~ the best thing about carbonated drinks is the sound of the bubbles fizzing. Of course bath bombs in water have the same sound happening as well.
Silence~ it’s really rare to have complete silence in the modern world, but I do like to take a few moments each day with nothing turned on to just be.
A camera shutter~ I don’t know why, because I hate having my picture taken and I’m a terrible photographer, but I love the sound of the shutter clicking on a camera.
What are some of your favorite sounds?
