    Above My Bed.....

    is a window that I leave open quite often throughout the year. Even in the dead of winter I will open it to let in the cool crisp winds from the outside come in. The sun wakens me and the moon puts me to sleep with the breeze running over my skin....its quite nice.

    My Room.

    Ya, I love sleeping with the window open. I fell into the habit when I had to stay in my room all those years. The smell of outside that comes through the open window is amazing. Magical even. I still sleep with it open today. It makes me feel free now that I can go to the source...

    Fresh Air!!!

    With my asthma (is stage: restrictive disorder acc. to a GP), I wouldn't like to have my windows shut. I need fresh air. If it's cold outside, I cuddle up under a nice big quilt and soak up the fresh winter air. I hate when there's a lack of oxygen in the bedroom, I tend to get...

    A Cool Breeze and the Hum of a Fan

    The sweetest lullabye.  I can't sleep in a room that's too hot, so I like a nice cold room, then I sleep so much better... too bad my room never seems to cool down lol but it helps a little

    I really do. With the window open a nice breeze

    can just flow right into the window and glaze over me :P It makes me shiver then pull my cover over me but it still feels good to feel that random breeze. I'm not a fan of the heat in Florida so getting those nice breezes at night especially after it rains is just amazing!

    As I lay snuggled up with my favorite blanket

    on the couch the cross breeze from the open window and doors makes it's way across my body. The crisp breeze feels and smells so good ..as I lay gazing out the window into the night stars...completely content...I live for nights like these!!

    I love the noise of my neighborhood.

    It's not a particularly safe neighborhood but it's a lively neighborhood. It's comforting to hear life happening. I don't even mind the parties on the weekend.

    When I Can

    I hate the winter, even though I was born in it [January]. The snow...the ice...the cold...the impossibility to walk to the trash cans in the rear or catch a ride to church in the front without falling on the glazed ice on the walks... Springtime. The warmth. Chicago Cubs games...

    I Like to Sleep With My Window Open.

    My bed room windows are always open even when it rains. I particularly love the breeze and the smell of the air during/after a shower. Its jus something that makes me feel closer to nature.

    Open, Close, Open Close Open Close Close Open, Grrr

    I do enjoy a bit of a night breeze caressing my sleeping skin on a warm summer evening...and cuddling up all snuggly under the duvet on a cold winter's night. I don't like being cooped up indoors and usually have doors and windows open whatever the weather. ...

    I love for my window to be open to hear

    traffic of ambulance, cars, buses or taxis honking all night, ESPECIALLY at night. Or out in the country hearing crickets, bats, owls, whatever at night.
