I hope everyone had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend. Our weekend was full of yard work (when it wasn’t raining), a trip to PBTeen with my step-daughters (they want a room makeover) and a cookout yesterday afternoon. My mom and I spent most of Memorial Day cleaning up around the pool and patio and moving around outdoor furniture. We try to create as many outdoor spaces as possible so everyone has their own spot. The pool will be opened next weekend but my mom and I got the entire area cleaned out and the outdoor furniture set up. The pool house below is under major renovation at the moment. Hoping to share that with you soon!
My parents spent most of the weekend in the Lake Winnipesaukee area of NH where they are looking to buy a cottage on the lake. There are so many lakes in the Lakes Region of NH that it’s a bit overwhelming. They did find one little ranch home that needs a lot of work but the lot is really pretty. I’m not sure if you know this but I have my real estate license and in my opinion, buying a “fixer-upper” is the way to go. I am seeing a road trip in my near future.
This is Meridith, NH below which is my mom’s favorite spot on Lake Winnipesaukee.
My dad is actually very excited about this particular home and is seemingly motivated to renovate. It’s about 15 minutes from Lake Winnipesaukee and the lake is smaller and peaceful. I think I see our 2014 Memorial Day on a lake somewhere.
