Are you hearing people talk? birds? wind? household appliances? traffic? Are they the usual sounds, or something unusual?
At the moment, only the sound of the keyboard and a barely audible hum from the laptop.
That is what I love about living where I live. There is rarely any noise. I do get very stressed if I am constantly battered by noise from traffic, people talking, other people's choice of music, etc.
Luxury! I sometimes have to write in the same room as my teenage son practising on his drum-kit.
It is vere quiet where I live, too. When I walk the dog in the early morning, I sometimes stop and listen to the quiet.
What I am hearing would be considered an annoyance. My daughter has the TV on... but in 2 days she will return to school. The house will be dead silent again. It will be empty. I will be alone quite a bit. I adore my kids. They make me laugh, they are sweet and fun and lively. Summer's almost over so I will ignore my eye twitch today as the noise blares. Soon enough they will be grown and I will never get this time back.
I love this answer. In any other writing platform across the net, people might say, "well I hear crickets, lots of construction, firetrucks, etc.". Writers tend to be poetic even when writing answers here.
Seasons come and go. You are wise to enjoy both the noise and the quiet, I think.
Jpop, a lively chatter of Japanese and English, and the clink of plates.
I love my sushi cafe lunch break. my ipad is propped against a conveyor belt full of all kinds of little plates of yummy things for $2 apiece.
(Alas, I just fled here early after my neighbor's shrieking kids made it impossible for me to write.)
That sounds nice-- in fact I think we are going for sushi tonight. My birthday. Any menu recommendatons?
I can hear one of my neighbours yelling at her wayward son. I do believe that she is throwing him out. This family always appear to bring their arguments onto the street, talk about airing dirty linen. I'll post again if this fight becomes physical!
Actually, Welsh is far more phonetic than English, but the alphabet is different, although it uses the same letter shapes.
Well that famous one,
was actually made up by a local shopkeeper in the 19th century to attract tourists.
People in Wales tend to refer to it as Llanfair PG or Llanfairpwll
and if you know that w takes an -oo- sound, then it is easy to recognise pwll as pool...
and so on
a, b, c, ch, d, dd, e, f, ff, g, ng, h, i, (j), l, ll, m, n, o, p, ph, r, rh, s, t, th, u, w, y
j is only used in a very few borrowed words
I remember the Ll makes a klu sound. Llandudno sounds like klandidno.
It's more a sort of hhhllll sound. I found it awkward at first but don't even think about it any more.
Sorry, Rochelle, no Welsh-themed hubs from me, because I've moved the ones I already had here to my own site, where I hope to write lots of articles "all about Wales" if and when I get time to do so.
Right now I'm hearing the hum of my air filter. It's fire season in the Sierra Foothills and I'm laying low in the house, hiding out from the smoke.
Oh, and there's the sound of the air tankers.
My new puppy whining in his sleep. (The little black one is the new pup.)

I am so frustrated right now. Here I am drinking my morning coffee and reading through my HP offerings. And, there they are! Person after person, with names that I have no chance to pronounce, writing articles (usually their first) that just the title alone, MAKES NO SENSE!OK, all of you bleeding...
