IMG_1957All the snow has finally melted in the seacoast of New Hampshire, but not before getting one last little snowfall in the middle of April.  Our little crocus bulbs were not too happy about that!  It’s now time to exchange the snow blower for the lawn mower.  The grass is slowly starting to green up now, which means I have to get the lawn mower ready; change the oil and air filter.  We also have to figure out if we need to reseed any bare grass spots. I prefer to do that in the fall, but that depends on the subdivision walk through.

The weather here is crazy still.  Almost 80 degrees one day and then a little bit of snow the next day, just enough to tease you into thinking you can pull your shorts out from the bottom of the drawer.

Wherever you are and whatever your weather is like today, Happy Easter!  We hope the Easter Bunny was good to you this year.  Enjoy your day with your family and friends.  Eat some good food, but make sure you leave room for chocolate and desserts!

Weekend Update

December 16, 2013

It has been a while since we updated the blog.  We have been busy settling into our new home and making repairs as well as exploring our new home state of New Hampshire.  We absolutely love it here. Anyway, our weekends are not the traditional Saturdays and Sundays that some lucky people enjoy.  We have […]

Blizzard February 2013

February 11, 2013

We survived our first big New England snow.  We had a blizzard that left us with 2+ feet of snow with drifts of 4+ feet.  We were fortunate that we did not lose our power during that time like so many people in Massachusetts did.  We were prepared with a stockpile of food, batteries, flashlights, […]

Weekend Update

January 28, 2013

We had a pretty successful weekend with getting things taken care of for our new house.  We had the fireplace service people come today and clean out our natural gas fireplace that probably hasn’t been cleaned in 15 years or more from the owners before us.  It is so clean and beautiful now with huge […]

We Moved To New Hampshire

January 27, 2013

We finally found a house and moved to New Hampshire a few months ago.  We are still busy settling in after hitting some major issues after moving in.  We hired an inspector, but obviously he did not find everything.  However, what he missed resulted in expensive repairs in just a few months of living here.

House Hunting From Afar

September 1, 2012

As you know, we finally sold our house this year.  We then signed up for a 5-month lease in an apartment not far from our house.  The buyers wanted a quick closing, so we did not have much time to find a place to rent.  This apartment also allowed us to have more than 1 […]

We Got Married!!!

August 23, 2012

When we were in New England last May house hunting we got MARRIED!  We have been together for 16-1/2 years, so it was about time.  Nothing big and fancy.  No invitations.  Our families did not know about it…hell, we didn’t even plan it.  We joked about doing it on the drive up, but we didn’t […]

Family Drama

August 19, 2012

On top of all the stress I am feeling from trying to buy a new home in another state, my father at some point during the past year decided he is no longer going to communicate with me.  We have never had a good relationship.  My mother died almost 9 years ago two weeks before […]

Apartment 911

June 27, 2012

Continued from the last post…same night as returning from Lowes Hardware and deciding where to park the car… That night/early morning, we wake up around 1:30 in the morning to a loud noise.  We both sat up and we heard something else again.   It sounded like someone was breaking in downstairs.  Mel was closest […]
