I am fortunate to have three large windows in my bedroom. Two of those are sheltered by a large maple tree. When I open them at night, I feel like I am sleeping outdoors.
Add my remote control fan, and I am in fresh-air heaven. Warm sticky nights are easily tolerated with the fan.
Cooler nights, night so cool that the fan is unnecessary – those are the nights I love.
Rain or clear, the cool , clean air rushes in, under its own breezy power, through the open windows. The cotton sheets reflect the cool, clean comfortableness, and it coaxes me to sleep. On those cool nights, I rarely awaken before morning. And when I do awaken, my body feels rested and ready for the day.
Air conditioning, while providing cool, doesn’t provide that same clean, fresh air satisfaction. I love fresh air nights.
