I Design Stuff

Office life.


My work days are long and tiring right now. Thank goodness I have a huge window to get lost staring out of, and plants to tend to. I can’t keep indoor plants alive at home, but somehow I’m able to get them to thrive in a midtown Manhattan office building. Go figure…

    So you have a window again and are out of your little cubby? Congratulations, that is a great view! I would get distracted watching the street all day. All I have to stare at out my windows are pastures and sports fields.

    Yes! I moved back to my old area where I sat for years. The cubby-hole got too depressing in the winter, I missed my window.

    (Pastures sound much more exciting than the side of the building across the street! I’m too high up to really see anything down low unless I really try.)

    i remember your special spot by the window. an expansive window indeed.

    love the shot of miss lulu peeking from behind the foliage.

    There is not much going on in the pastures close to my school. The ones coming into the area where I work offer the occasional calf birth. I wish the Alpaca farm down the road was in view of my windows, that would keep me entertained for hours!

    I love Alpacas! My co-worker Sandy drove by the Alpaca farm the other day and two of them were being “intimate” right out in the open! I guess they are not bashful.

    how long is your commute to NYC ? do u drive or bus?
    just curious

    Val, I take the Metro North train from Beacon (a 5-minute ferry ride takes me across the river from Newburgh directly to the train station) to Grand Central. There’s an express train that takes just under an hour, but I usually take a later one (less crowded) that’s about an hour and 10 minutes.

    Not much longer than when I live in Brooklyn (Red Hook). 🙂

    Thanks. We live in Queens now but some day may move upstate somewere. Newburgh just looks far from the city on the map thats why I asked 🙂 Even an hour and 10 doesnt sound too bad.
