Someday, in the not too distant future, the windows will be open at night. There will be crickets and lightening bugs. And we’ll try to decide if it’s too humid (or “close,” as my mother would say) to leave the AC off to sleep. And we’ll hang laundry in the sunshine and be worried about dandelions taking over the lawn. Even in the midst of this brutal winter of 2014, we can count in these things happening again.
