The air through the open window smells like summer and trees, and I can hear frogs and cicadas and katydids. Currently, it's 81˚F, with a heat index of 85˚F.

I like it here.

Tomorrow morning the second set of movers come, the ones with all our furniture and my books and Spooky's art supplies. They'll be here at 8 a.m., and I hope they'll be gone by mid afternoon, but it could be later. I may get Spooky to dump me at the library partway through the day. As for today, we got back to Birmingham late in the morning. We spent the day shifting boxes about to make room for the furniture. We got Chinese takeout for dinner. Selwyn's a little less freaked out than he was yesterday. Lydia loves it all. My mom and my Aunt Ramey came by this afternoon. We got internet.

Sooner or later, I'll feel like I live here.
