The heat and humidity that has persisted for weeks finally began leaving us today. The house was opened and allowed to breathe in the morning. The cat, which had been complaining bitterly for days that there was simply no entertainment to be had with the house closed, was finally able to sit at the front door and keep an eye (and nose!) on the neighborhood comings and goings. By evening, it was cool and crisp, without quite being anticipation of fall. I am looking forward to a few days of lovely sleeping weather, with no air conditioning or fans blowing.
