The View Out My Window

What a nice place to live! Summer looks beatiful and winters looks like a wonderland.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving the comment! I hope you're a regular (or will become one).

Yes, it is quite nice. Among the things I love about it:

- I'm 10 minutes from where I work

- It actually doesn't snow all that often, and when it does, like this weekend, it doesn't tend to stick around for too long.

- I don't feel apprehensive about letting my cats go outside (though the fact that they bring back all sorts of stuff - often still quite alive - is kind of annoying)

- My landlord is a very friendly man

- In the summer, in the evenings, the yard is filled with fireflies

I am so jealous. Seriously.

Well, hello, anon #2! Thank you for stopping by, as well.

Perhaps these annoying aspects of my apartment will temper your jealousy:

- It is a basement in a home, meaning the walls are thin and I hear every footfall on the floor above me. Since the owner is a cab driver, those footfalls frequently occur at 4 to 5 a.m. Plus, the owner has a large-screen TV and a college-age son. For this non-football fan, the last two Redskins games were awful.

- Along with having all the typical home infrastructure (heater, laundry) there is also a water softener down here, which runs (meaning makes a loud whooshing noise, like water forced through sand at high pressure) at 4:30 every morning.

- Because of the above two items, I find myself sleeping with earplugs at night and even wearing them and/or listening to music on headphones a significant portion of the day.

- Being a basement, there is no kitchen to speak of, just a sink and a small refrigerator (and a microwave and toaster oven that I had to purchase myself). I was never much of a cook anyway, so I've learned to adapt to this.

Does that help?

Anon 2 (and 3) here... I'm not jealous so much about your living conditions. Rather I am jealous that you live someplace with real, honest to goodness seasons. And beautiful ones at that.
