A lot of times when I'm here by myself, I go the whole day with no noise, except maybe the washer or dryer, and the birds. No music, no TV.
Y'all know I love some music, and don't know what I'd do without it.
And, I also love me some conversation.
But, you can't put a price on quiet.
We went to the beach this weekend, and my favorite parts were when Andrew and I, and sometimes Big Silas, my FIL, were just sitting under the tent, reading our books or just watching the waves.
Over, and over, and over.
Total peace and calm.
I also really enjoy moments when it's just me at the pool. I especially enjoy it at night, when I don't have to worry about sunscreen.
I love the way sunscreen smells, but I HATE applying it.
There is something so refreshing and relaxing about cool pool water.
Dunking your head under, and you can't hear anything but your own splashes.
And maybe the sound of some leaves rustling in the breeze.
Time to clear your head.
To talk to God.
Now that summer's coming to a close, I will turn to evening rides of back roads with the windows down as my alternative.
