The weather has been all consuming.
You know it is hot when even under your eyes feels sweaty. It was possibly 100 degrees here today... We draped blankets over all of the windows and hid out in our cave-like house most of the day.
Lili told Alex it was raining on his forehead.
But tonight it cooled down. And a full moon rose. And I made myself an ice cream cone and sat outside alone in our camping chair.
Thinking through some insecurities.
Listening to the loud rhythm of the peepers all around.
Listening to the muffled voices of my 9 year old niece and her friend having a sleepover on the trampoline at the bottom of our garden. giggles rising out of the night.
fireflies rising in and out too.
