May is my favorite month – I mean obviously, esp. since my birthday is coming up. But also because right now the weather is perfect. As in it is warm, but not too warm. And also not too cold. Last night Rich and I walked all the way home from the top left corner of Central Park. Basically the part that is the furthest from where we live. It was such a pleasant night and it smelled of elderflower everywhere.
Today I spent several hours on our – finally – furnished roof top. I worked a bit and I read for pleasure. Although I now can’t wait to sit on the bigger terrace once we have moved. On that note, we have started the lengthy coop application process – which feels remarkably easy this time because we already have pretty much all required documents because of my Green Card application. Also, we have started to pack the first few moving boxes. I love to start with books because they are easy to pack and, as I mostly don’t part with them, I don’t have to think much.
