Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer

Open Window

For the last few nights, AdventureMan and I have been sleeping without the air conditioner – it has cooled enough that we can do that.

This morning, for the first time, I have the window open in the upstairs lounge where I do my computer things first thing every morning.

When we lived in Kuwait, I missed the open windows. We lived on the tenth floor, and there were no screens. I couldn’t trust the Qatteri Cat not to jump out the window. He is smart in a lot of ways, but not so smart when it comes to windows and being ten stories up.

It is migration time, and our gardens are full of birds. I remember seeing flocks of parakeets, wild bright green parakeets one time, it totally thrilled my heart. Just being able to sit here with the windows open – it doesn’t take much to make me happy. ๐Ÿ™‚
