I also included a photo video of our family celebration of Paulina's 73 birthday, which was on April 4th in my last post. You can view all of 'em since we returned in Feb.
We made reservations for a vacation in the Berkshire Mountains, beginning on May 13th for 2 weeks, as well as a 2nd vacation at Myrtle Beach for 12 days beginning on November 11th. We've also given some thought to a special trip for us and our beloved Mr Lucky to tour Europe in anticipation of Paulina's 75th Birthday, .. a cruise to Spain, then a month seeing the sights of Barcelona and Tuscany.
The only real event left, before we leave, is for a return to Hacienda Del Sol for Easter, and I've included last year's family fun. We'll be the same group, with much of the same food and fanfare, but we're always ready for Easter, the top Christian holiday times.
I'm also suspending most of my hobby business activities to try and update our movie database. My priority is on the movies as we plan to leave as much of the home staging as possible, and I want to use our library for the new Plex Server.
Naturally, we're excited about our upcoming six months, which will allow us to fully enjoy our Summer Place in the Adirondacks. We're also expecting lots of family and friends to visit (as we've held back due to the work, etc).
There's lots of side activities also happening, i.e., shopping for a more trip friendly car, thinking about what to do if and when our house sells (Holiday Inn for sure) until we decide on our future.
Short term it's the best alternative in that for about $3,ooo/month, we don't have to do anything more than pack light. We now believe, we can enjoy Schroon River from May thru November or later .. and, may only need a place for 3-4 months.
Long term, we may want more property and/or a house for enjoying a more personal lifestyle and the great outdoors. Considering we now know we want "Endless Summer", we're currently thinking about property and a home somewhere in the South .. i.e., Hot Springs, AK and Bowling Green, KY. But, since we haven't begun our search yet, that's very tentative.
I don't expect another update until we have something to show for it, that is in May during our vacation in the Berkshires. And then, again in June after we've arrived at Schroon River.
So, I hope your life and vacation plans are going well. Also, Happy Easter for you and yours,
