Before I moved into this apartment 2 weeks ago I was telling people, “I only signed a year lease. I’m not sure if I’m going to like it there…” Blah, blah, blah.
I LOVE IT!
Here’s a look at the first night in the new place: Nothing had been delivered yet. Picture two floors of empty space. All I had was a twin mattress on the floor downstairs and a couple of suitcases. I’m getting ready to go to sleep, so I walk down the stairs to find this:
He thought it looked just right for him! I shooed him off, went to sleep, and in the middle of the night he crawled in and spooned! He had the whole apartment available! He makes me laugh every single day.
So here’s the neighborhood: when you look down the street, you can see the hills on the other side of the lake, but not the lake itself. Looking up the street is the best part, though. We’re on the very edge of a giant forest with miles and miles of trails. Mufasa, of course, thinks this is grand, and since my iron levels have gone back up, I feel like running for the first time in a couple years.
Apartment’s still a mess, but I adore it. You must come for dinner!
The best part of being here has been that the bus departs from very near my place and whisks me into the heart of Zurich in just 14 minutes. So parties, drinks with new people, work, it’s all nearby.
It’s a gorgeous day in Zurich today, so we’re going for a long, long walk in the woods…
