The Caucophany of Summer!

It was cool enough last night to throw open the doors and windows and let the cool night air in. So as we went around opening up- it grew progressively louder! LOUD! The frogs and crickets and geese and whatever wildlife is out there were glad it was a nice night too!

We moved "closer in" this past year, not as far out in the country as we were before. At the other house we were in the middle of hundreds of acres of prairie and pastures and woods with a dairy farm next door (40 acres away) so in addition to the chirping of the buggies and froggies add the cows and the bellering of houn' dogs. (The dairy owner has nat'l champion coon dogs.)
old house:
Youngest used to gripe that she couldn't sleep because it was too loud out there. She whines that it's "country" sounds she doesn't like. She prefers the City Sounds. Like cars and sirens and neighbors screaming at each other in the middle of the night? (She's reading this). And she's getting 'em in KC. It's not that I don't like big cities, I grew up in LA under the flight path for Santa Monica Airport and I don't miss any of that.
Well, I slept GREAT! Some people have to have white noise or ocean waves in the cd player to sleep at night. I have Summer in my ear, the real thing. With the water, the oak trees and just being in the MidWest, there is lots of life around here.

It all sounds just perfectly relaxing to me. I'll take it.
