A Sniff of Fresh Air

After the last rainstorm blew through town, the temperatures and humidity dropped.  For the first time in several months, evening temperatures were low enough to warrant sleeping with the windows open.  It’s lovely to feel a cool breeze through the windows and awaken to the sounds outside.

I hear the breeze as the evening descends and the crickets and night creatures chirp as I fall asleep.  

During the day, the cats sit in the sills of the open windows and happily sniff the air.

Come the morning, the birds are chirping and when I step outside to see the sun rise the backyard looks magical in the light.  It’s shaping up to be a lovely fall.
