After almost 10 full days without AC we are finally back to the land of dry, cool air! The repair guy left around lunchtime today, and now we are playing catch up on the things we didn't do all week, like laundry, major cleaning, or even turning on our computers because they made the room so hot.
I have to admit that I will sort of miss having my windows flung wide open each night, even though everything in our house felt a bit like a soggy sock. I loved hearing the deer moving through the tall grasses in the field next door, and realized that lots of things are on the move each night as we slumber away. Some of them made noises that woke me and caused me to bolt to the window in hopes of seeing their silhouettes outlined by the full moon, but the creatures of the night are more stealthy, so I rarely saw whatever it was that screeched, hissed, or maybe even chortled during the wee hours of the morning.
