yesterday was one of the hottest days we've had so far, warming up to over 80 degrees. i was at chris's until late, eating the world's largest, most delicious sandwich and watching game of thrones, and when i left, the air still held the day's heat. my room has a door that leads to a tiny screened in porch, which might actually be my favorite thing about the place, and i left the door open when i fell asleep to let the night air in. at four in the morning i woke up to thunder and lightning banging into my bedroom. bix was sleeping in his crate, so i dragged him up on to the bed, and we laid there for a while, watching the lightning bursts through the window and listening to the thunder that followed.
