Q Is For Quiet

My hubby calls the the noise police. I like my quiet time that much.
I hate when the tv is too loud, or sirens and car alarms are going crazy.
I prefer the calm quiet sounds of nothingness.

Even Bjork likes it quiet. Enough so, she sang a song:

So what do you prefer? Quiet calm or Noisy nature?

  1. I am SO SO SO with you. I love quiet. I find it odd that quiet unnerves some people. Great song choice too.

  2. Hi Freda,
    I like peace and quiet myself. But that's a little hard to find now a days. Since the twins were born. Have a great day!

  3. Hey Freda! It depends on what mood I am in or if I have a headache. LOl

    If I am writing, I don't mind background noise, as long as it is kept a reasonable volume that does not pull me out of what I am doing.

    I work in the City which is loud all the time. There are the rare moments, say on a Monday night where all is quiet.

    When I come home, my neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful that I immediately relax.

    So for me I think I have to factor in mood and atmosphere.

  4. I don't mind noise, except when it's too loud. I find myself turning down the TV or radio just a couple notches fairly often.

  5. I love Summers background noise in the country or a relaxing rest with the background noise of the ocean.
    I have a hard time with complete quiet.Great post for 'Q'.
    We do get some weird and quirky Spring weather in the Atlantic Provinces.

  6. I like it quiet--but not too quiet. :) Soft instrumental music playing in the background might help me when i'm writing a scene, but often i keep it quiet when i'm editing.

  7. It all depends on my mood and what the noise is. I don't like the TV playing but music in the background is fine. When I'm working outside I'm always wearing headphones listening to music.

  8. Cool video. It depends on my mood and the circumstance. Over all I prefer calm quiet, but there are good times for noisiness as well.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.

So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
