Morning Sounds

Morning Sound I Hate:

loud, obnoxious, stupid, blaring alarm clock

Morning Sounds I Love:

ground coffee pouring into the new, dry coffee filter
hissing and spitting of coffee brewing
slap of newspaper hitting the kitchen table
the dog's contented sigh as she begins her 6 a.m. nap under the kitchen table
rustle of newspaper pages turning
bare feet on a wooden floor
"good morning" from someone who is glad you're there
shaking up of orange juice container
jingle of keys in purse
Mozart's 40th symphony on car radio
"Acuna Matata" blaring over school's P.A. system
"good morning" from someone else who is glad you're there

I have always found mornings hard, and am trying to use the brighter spring mornings we are having at the moment to find things I do like about my morning routine (sometimes after being up most of the night but that is a different story, lol). You are right, sometimes the simplest, smallest everyday thing can bring a great deal of pleasure.

What a delightful and inspiring post. I love early mornings - it's like a flower blossoming. We should all take time to think about the sounds we love!

In another chapter of my life I was a Human Resources Director and while conducting interviews I always asked "what's your favorite sound" - I liked to watch people's reactions as they described their favorite sound. It amazing what you notice. :-)

It certainly looks like the positive sounds of morning outweighs the bad :o) I really have a day to day feeling about morning… some mornings are great, some mornings I just don’t want to go out of bed… I’ll try and remember your post on the bad mornings :o)

Right with you there, we now just leave the curtains ajar and awake slowly to light rather than noise, Tracey. ps Dear jane looks fun.

Great post... I love the coffee pot sound, and bare feet on a wooden floor....
