ABC Wednesday ~ Q ~

This weeks letter is ...................Q

Q is for ...............Quiet.


Just the sound of the word quiet is somewhat soothing to me. I love the quiet. My favorite time of the night is after both kids have gone to bed, Ken is already sleeping, and I have some time to myself. All by myself in the quiet. No cell phones ringing, no TV blaring, no video game sounds, and no loud sounds of the kids. Just quiet.

I usually take this time by myself to read a book or have some computer time. Almost all of the lights are turned off in the house and the house is very still. The only sounds I hear are the humming of the air conditioner. Quiet.

I have no pictures of quiet. I could have taken a picture of our recliner in the front room. That's where I sit if I am reading a book late at night. Or maybe a picture of our back room. It looks so different in the quiet without the TV on or kids running around in it.

So right now I am happily sitting in the quiet typing this post. For more great Q words- head on over to ABC Wednesday .

What a perfect post for Q-day! As a former teacher, I can tell you the best part of the day is that quiet that comes when you suddenly realise you're the only one left in the school. *sigh*

I love quiet moments. There is a difference between quiet and silence. I love being out in nature with soft quiet sounds.

Aaah ... quiet! Peace and quiet! We all need some of that!

No matter that you don't have a photo. Everyone has their own image of what quiet means to them.

Thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday! I hope you'll be back next week. :)
