Q Is For Quiet

 I am a queen.
Of my own kingdom.
I'm sure you can relate. Are you not king or queen of your home?
Ah, you see where I was going.....
But no, my royal status is not important much these days. What is important?? Peace and quiet!!!
Yep, that's me!
The family calls me the quiet police.
Have they not heard the term, Silence is Golden?
During the summer months. the kids are out of school and make much more noise than I am used to when doing what I need to do in a day. It's not like I get a summer vacation from life, so my days are pretty much routine. Anal for some, happiness for me.... anyway.... Then the hubby gets almost three weeks vacation. Ladies, I know you feel me.... I love him even after thirteen years, but day in and day out after three weeks I am going insane! I couldn't wait for him to go back to work! I should feel terrible, but really I don't. A few hours apart a few days a week keeps a marriage happy, not sad.
And I get my silence. Happy wife is a happy life they say, whomever they are....
I live for silence in this busy, noisy, buzz of a city I live in. Half of a million people all doing stuff at once and I live in the heart of it. I live for those moments I get with no music, no tv, no anything in my background. Just the buzz of the outside trying to get in my bubble, and the tick of the clock.
That's when I know I can do some of my favorite things like write poetry, meaningful blog posts, or read. You know how I love to read. I'm the type who gets distracted easy so sound is a no-go when I read. That should be a no-brainer though.

So, how many of you are as anal about quiet time as I am??? I know I am not alone.

  2. Ah, nothing like the sound of silence! I love the first half of the day when I get my quiet time save for the wheeks of my guinea pig. I call that my 'happy hour' when the boys are in school and the hubs at work!

  3. I too need my quiet time. Thankfully I get a lot of it during the day while everyone is gone because with the amount of noise they all make when they come home I'd lose my mind :)

  7. Oh yes, I join you in your pursuit of quiet -- I've been known to turn off the A/C and be warm rather than constantly listen to it!

  8. I was a nanny for a family of 4 children that was SO noisy compared to my house growing up. I was always asking them to do things quietly. Sometimes we just need quiet time

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
