And I’m so happy. I love the beginning of summer, but the last days just kill me. The temperatures in the high nineties (sometimes even the low 100’s) – it’s just too hot. But the last few days there’s been fog in the morning, and the temperature has dropped abruptly to the mid-80s, which feels positively TEMPERATE. My air conditioner isn’t kicking on every half-hour all night, and the air coming through the windows in the evenings is cool.
And even when it’s in the mid-80s there’s a slight undertone to the air. A sharpness under the heat that hints of colder days moving in. I got a chill getting out of the shower last night for the first time in months.
It makes me think of cold nights and apple cider. Of Christmas trees and cloudy days and soup and sweaters. I love it.
And by March or April I will be sick of the cold and the rain and ready for Spring again. 😉
