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?
