I know when spring is here. It’s when I can open the bedroom window at night and not freeze my bahtooty off in the process. Saturday night was the first night that I left the bedroom window open and then again last night. But I am thinking of keeping the window shut tonight and not just because there is rain in the forecast.
Saturday night or Sunday early morning. I heard Ollie coughing in the other room or so I thought. As I heard him coughing I lay there in my early morning stupor trying to decide if my son needed some water or an extra pillow. The coughing continued and it was getting worse. I really thought he was going to cough up a lung or a hair ball, at any rate phlegm was defintly involved. As my early morning stupor was wearing off I realized that it was not my son coughing but the coughing was coming from outside the window. It was the cough of a professional smoker. I suppose four in the morning is as good as any hour to go outside and cough up buckets of phlegm… I’m sure it makes for an easy clean up.
And then there was this morning. Adam being the great hubby that he is let me sleep in. I didn’t get to sleep in as late as I wanted. Outside a male and female were singing a duet, very loudly and very off-key. Who does that? Who goes out in their backyard at seven in the morning and sings? I don’t do you?
So tonight I will keep the window closed. But if I do I wonder what I will miss out on? Because barking dogs are just too cliche.
