|Our Apartment and the Restaurant Below|
|One of the cobblestone streets right around the corner from us|
Parking in the city is a little crazy at times; everything in the area is either metered or you have parking garages galore if you aren't a resident; Tom and I had planned on going the parking garage route, but I was able to work my charm and get us a temporary parking permit for the month. Although charm might be pushing it, I really just had to ask and I figured the worst the city could do was tell me no. So I marched myself down to the city offices, Ethel in tow, with the lease for the month and low and behold, a glorious parking permit was bestowed upon me and completely reaffirms the mantra, it never hurts to ask!
This apartment doesn't have a television, which might be a breaking deal for some, I find it to be a little slice of heaven. But I am not a big one for TV anyway, back home, it was maybe on for two hours on the weekends when Tom was home and that was it; plus if I find myself lacking entertainment, one can stream via the internet or better yet read! Who needs television when there is so much going on to experience, it’s like throwing moments of life away! Although it is easy to say this now only because the Game of Thrones withdrawals haven’t set in yet, so you know, if anybody wants to lend me their HBO Go account, I wouldn't object!
