Woke up early, in 24° heat (75°F). The sun was just rising, so I quick opened the windows to let the cool air in. I fed Auguste and we walked for a while, taking advantage of the morning. By the time I got home, the sun was streaming into the windows, so I closed the shutters and now we are in a sort of indoor twilight. It’s not too hot inside, the morning air and the fans have refreshed the apartment, so we’re ready for another day in the heat!

Happy 4th of July! I have to go to work soon, and when I get home I’ll make a big watermelon salad to take to Andrea’s for the party.
