I took the dog out at 4:00 AM (she woke me) and I was stunned by the silence, not a peep, and it was almost eerie. But when I stood there, waiting for Cleo to do her thing, I waited and listened and thought 'how often, during the day, do I hear silence?!' And it was amazing. There is so much white-noise, I'm listening to the air vent, radio, dog playing and it's only 6:15 AM. So in 15 minutes Sophie will wake up, then Jordi, and the breakfast will be made; blenders blending, eggs boiling, toast toasting, PLUS all of the other noise. So next time I get up at 4:00 AM to take the dog out I will wait longer and relish the lack of noise.
