I can’t conceive of a morning without a cup of coffee. It needs to be very hot. The first sip tumbles through my entire being, letting me know that the day will turn out to be wonderful after all. The delectable coffee aroma caresses my nostrils, laughing off my doubts that things have the ability to turn out just fine.
I have a few tricks and secrets that are guaranteed to make my cup of coffee an exquisite delight each and every morning. The coffee must be of the best quality. I have to prepare it myself, with my own special magic. Then the delicious fragrance begins to spread throughout the whole apartment. It is essential that the coffee is very strong.
My relationship with brands like Starbucks is discussed here.
Here’s a little update in regards to my life these days. The epic renovation of the staircase is now complete. However, it turns out that it’s a little early to breathe a sigh of relief. We have received a two-page letter form out landlord, detailing all the further improvements, constructions, and renovations that are planned for this building in the nearest future. Among the things on the list there were new elevators and reinforcements for balconies.
Added to this is the fact that the next door neighbours are lacquering their floors. And then there are the downstairs neighbours, for whom every day is an excuse to drink and party.
It might not surprise you that, after living in this apartment for nearly 11 years, we are not actively searching for a new place to live. “Searching” seems like such a soft, peaceful words. The term I probably should have used is “frenzied hunt”. How long it will last, and how it will end, no one really knows. Any positive vibes sent in our direction will be greatly appreciated. I am definitely going to feel them.
And now, here are a couple of views of my beloved High Park, with whom we might have to part once we move. Though we are certainly going to visit as often as we can.
