Oh, the dreamy sound of a happy sewing machine! It practically purrs. I love that hummm.
Nothing irritates me more than to have to schedule an appointment for my machine at a dealership, an hour away, to "drop off" the machine and then go back two weeks later to pick it up. Several years ago I was given the name of a repairman in the Plano area, he is a dream to work with. I still have to schedule an appointment, but it's like a doctors visit. I drop it off, go to Starbuck's- journal, read, doodle, run errands, whatever, and return 2-3 hours later and take that baby home! He works on all models and I am happy to share his number, just leave a comment and let me know. Your machine will thank you!
The other sound of summer that I particularly enjoy, is that of cicadas or locusts. I know, kind of loud and annoying at times, but there is a certain comfort in the buzz for me. However, I will say that I am very happy that I have air conditioning and can escape the sound by coming indoors. Can you imagine years ago, having to suffer through this heat, day and night and then have the sound of those bugs screeching all. day. long.?
And I mean this kind of heat.
When we go to bed, it's still in the 90's. Which makes it no surprise that my most favorite hummm of summer is that of the air conditioner.
What about you? What sounds of summer do you enjoy?
