Such a simple pleasure. Open windows.
Today is the first day in ages that the morning temp and humidity is low enough to let some actual fresh air through the apartment. The AC recycled air was stifling.
I do get a decent breeze wafting through, not fine ocean breezes, but even 287 road noise breezes are better than closed windows.
The view, such as it is of an empty lot that I suspect will one day be another big building, means I can throw open the five windows in this place, three in the living room, two in the master bedroom, with abandon!!
I expect to finish the Splendid and The Vile today. Yesterday, feeling pent up inside, I took my iPad and went outside around what’s to be the pool. Lots of other people with the same idea but the heat was oppressive and most residents, myself included, gave up the ghost after a half hour or so.
I watched some of the Giants game last night. One of my kids and his family went to the practice game earlier this week and said the stadium was raucously joyful. Fans are hopeful. New coach. Some new recruits. Alas, not enough to stave off the Jets last night! 🙃
Happy Sunday. I hope this gets you outside to enjoy the fresh air.
UPDATE: The downside to all windows open? I smell what everyone is cooking for breakfast. I think my closest neighbors are having a Denver omelette, lots of onion and pepper aroma wafting in to my apartment! 🙄
