the sounds in my house

quietness in the living room, where I'm writing this
Andy the Wonder Dog occasionally, obsessively licking himself or the floor around him
Twinkles the Crazy Cat sniffing out the cars left on the car rug last night
Jonah's little voice at the top of the stairs
sounds of fun coming from the bonus room
my fingers clicking away happily on this keyboard
tiny steps trying to sneak downstairs (darn creaky stairs)
the pitter patter of the little feet coming up to stand beside me
voices asking me what's for breakfast
shuffling through the assortment of cars to find the perfect one
the sounds of summer
ain't life grand?
