on second thought

hi everybody, happy wednesday! i hope you’re having a good week. we’ve been busy over here cause i’m trying to coordinate a trip next month and tying loose ends up seems to be a never ending task. and trying to have a little fun between working, shooting  and a millions of projects that have only had broad strokes over then, let alone fine tuning any.

what’s going on behind  the work scene is something i didn’t see coming. you know i love my apartment but my life here has abruptly come to an end. most of the time i shoot the view from the balcony and show just the pretty part. but today i’ll share the rest. in the not too faraway distance is a low rooftop. i kept meaning to contact the building to propose a green space. that was a year ago. maybe if i had they wouldn’t be building a new tower this year right in my center line. guess we’ll never know, but it’s a construction site/war zone  as of today so it’s time to move again and pdq.  so it’s onward and hopefully upward. well, coffee just walked in so my blog break’s over. gotta go, have a great high noon!

    I’m so sorry you have to do this all over again, so quickly. I believe we were all excited watching your new place come together! However, I pray you are re-situated very quickly and as painlessly as possible.

    All things come to an end, so more quickly than we want them to. Life goes on, but I know you will miss your place by the sea.
    Happy Wednesday.

    we started looking at what’s available and i hope they’re real!


  7. The Paris Apartment replied:

    yes it’s funny when something comes to a screeching halt! i thought i’d be happy the rest of my days here. looks like the universe has something else in mind!

    Sorry to hear that Claudia. Moving is such a pain.
    I hope that you find something that you like.

    I used to live on the upper west side of Manhattan & I had a perfect dreamy view of the gargoyles on the Museum of Natural History until…..augh!!! a big building went up BLOCKING my view. But it actually gave my apt. more shade, my rug & curtains didn’t fade as much & it was much cooler in the summer. Sometimes interesting things come of change. Good luck to you. I know you’ll find something nice. You have a natural talent for seeking out beauty.

    Hi Claudia,

    I am sorry to hear about the move. But thank you for being so honest and sharing it with us. I have also moved this week and it has been utter madness. As these things are. I hadn’t told my readers, but after reading your post I have decided to share it with them tomorrow.

    Good luck with everything. I hope you find a lovely new spot.

    Oh no! Such terrible news. I do detest moving, but perhaps it’s the beginning of a new wondeful adventure…?!
