Sounds of Home

The sound of coffee brewing and bacon sizzling was my weekend alarm clock.

The gravel of our driveway crackling under the wheels of my Dad’s truck as he pulls in.

The distinct, bird-like whistle my parents would use to communicate across the house to see if the other was home.

Jack meowing ever so loudly when he was ready to venture outdoors.

Young and the Restless on the TV every afternoon from 4:30-5:30.

Don Cherry’s commentary every Saturday evening as we gathered around to watch the Leafs play,

Cheering, goal horns and hockey sticks against the ice filling the living room with anticipation and excitement.

Dad hurling insults at the TV when they weren’t playing well enough.

Christmas carols playing from the yule log Christmas channel every season.

These are just a few of the sounds of my home that make my heart feel warm when I remember them.

We all have our own, personal sounds of home, what are yours?

  1. Distinct bird like whistles… Such a sweet sound indeed!
    Sounds of home… What an amazing thought that is.. I will be spending a couple of months at home with my parents (haven’t spent that long at home ever since I moved out for my education) and I will definitely do a post on sounds of home! Amazing thought, beautiful prompt… Thank you for your lovely post 🙂

  2. This is so beautiful and makes me a little homesick. If anything, my favourite sound at home was always mum whipping something up in the kitchen and the scent of it drifting into my bedroom. Really enjoyed this post x
