Sounds of Silence

Since my two favorite guys are both sleeping at the moment, I'm actually enjoying the sound of pure silence. Ok, technically it isn't PURE silence, because obviously the sound of me tapping out these words on the keyboard makes a sound, and the coffee brewing in the kitchen is a faint sound in my ears, but when I say silence, I mean no meowing kitties, no television, no music, no chatter- but silence. I really do understand why they say that silence is golden, because there are times when I feel that it's music to my ears to simply hear nothing. (Oddly, as I typed those words, my cell phone rang with a very LOUD Nickelback playing "Rockstar" as the ringtone.) Since it was in the other room, I didn't answer it, but it definitely broke the 'silence' I was just raving about.

I guess that's just as well, since according to my clock on the lower right hand side of the screen, I have exactly one minute until I have to wake Marcel, which means one minute to actually finish this entry.

I may be back later so that I can actually write about some of the things that have been on my mind, plus to discuss some of Time Magazine's top 50 websites for 2008. I've actually gone through them all- bookmarked them (in their own folder marked Time's top 50 for 08), and plan to spend more time exploring them all when I have time. Some I've heard of, and some I haven't, but already love from first peek. More on that later..... right now I have a husband that needs waking.

enjoy the silence whenever you can... it usually won't last.

Ooh how right you are Dorrie- It's came and went again. Right now all is quiet, but it's cold in here. BRRRRr I almost ran my bath water over because I was goofing on the computer.

Oh and I just tried to comment on one of your entries (the latest) and it didn't allow me- when I clicked comment, nothing came up, but a blank page. Weirddddd.

I really enjoy having quiet time to myself... I get grumpy if I don't have quiet time every now and then *L*
