The air conditioner. The occasional computer beep. Traffic outside (faintly). My co worker clearing his throat.

The ceiling fan in my room and the ticking of a clock. Far off, I hear cars on the road.

Kids.

My 6yo is crushing her grandmother in Jenga and laughing maniacally.

The frogs in my front yard are particularly loud tonight.

The washing machine and dryer are both running downstairs and I can hear them faintly.

Like @raum, kids. But I don’t have kids in the house. All the noise comes from the nursery next to us.

White noise machine and tinnitus.

The Seattle Storm playing the Washington Mystics.

Even though their venues are about 2,700 miles apart, they both play in Washington! ;-o

@Brian1946 Pity only the Seattle Storm get representation in the senate though..

Birdsong. They wake me up with their beautiful music every morning, I love it. And the neighbors rooster crowing.

A box fan blowing air conditioned air from my bedroom into the rest of the house.

Road noise usually. I live between two fairly busy streets and I like to open the windows for the breeze. Alternately, on 90+F days I close the windows and the air conditioner is loud.

And I also we have lots of lovely bird noise. From about 3am to 7am they are the loudest thing in spring and summer. Lots of sparrows, cardinals, and robins. Later in the day the big crows caw and the swallows (or swifts?) fly high and twitter while they rid us of bugs.

Hum of the freeway.

Silence, then the almost imperceptible sound of my PC’s fan, then the cry of a seabird and then silence again.
