I got home around 8:30 tonight after having dinner with one of my dear girlfriends. It was so nice to sit and talk and not be in a rush to get dinner eaten so I could do my chores.

When I got home, it seemed so nice and quiet without the television on, so I just sat down under a throw, with just my Daylight lamp on, in the otherwise dark house. Liesl is sleeping next to me, only opening her eyes briefly if she hears a noise outside and is deciding whether or not to go bark at it. The only sounds in the house is the mantle clock ticking, and the refrigerator humming. It is so nice.

I am trying to make a concerted effort to not to turn on my television all of the time. There is very little that I actually watch on television. Usually, it is on if I am stitching as my primary activity. I will say that I do love to watch mostly Discovery, Food Network and HGTV. However, my guilty pleasures are Cake Boss and Real Housewives of New Jersey. RHONJ is really junk food for the mind, but all in all it makes me appreciate my boring life. I am not sure I could handle all of that drama on a personal level. LOL

Well, I must go tuck in the furgirl and read my book. I hope you are having a nice, peaceful evening, too.

I love the house being quiet too...when my husband is out of town I keep it nice & peaceful. The TV can be a habit and we forget what it's like to sit and listen. I am a Discovery girl too...especially Deadliest Catch.
