the brilliance of an old home
All I can say today is that when my house settles at night, it sounds like small firecrackers exploding in the walls. And somehow, crickets have made their way inside my home. Now, I like crickets and all, but I sleep inside for a reason. And the fact that they are trying to mate to my smoke detector as it beeps, is particularly disconcerting. I realize old homes have their charm, but if they could be a little quieter on the nights I need to sleep, I'd be very greatful.
