I like a certain amount of quiet time too . . . I can be very happy sitting with a cup of tea looking out the window or reading a book, stamping. And when I need to write something I need it absolutely quiet to concentrate, can't stand even having the TV on in another room, too distracting.
Cheesecake is safely in the freezer. We had roast chicken tonight for supper and now I need to think of a good recipe for the leftovers.
