As spring is trying to get going here in Massachusetts, I have been thinking about how soon we will be able to “follow the weather.” Thankfully, our winter was pretty mild and we did not have a lot of snow. Especially compared to 2014’s crazy snow storms. This spring has been cold, windy and wet. The trees just started to bud and bloom a few weeks ago. Many are still not out with a month until summer! Maine and New Hampshire had snow the other day.
I do not like winter and love the sun and heat. I find myself saying-“just one more winter here” and “we have to enjoy this fall since we may not be back here in a while.” I do like the summers and fall in Massachusetts, but dislike the winters and springs. Even summer is really not warm enough for me here. We get about two very warm weeks in the 90’s. I am so excited to be able to move our home around!
We have still been clearing out clothing, books, knick knacks and selling and donating them. Some shelves are finally emptying out. We have about four boxes of things we will store at Craig’s parents until we find a place we would like to buy land. Some photo albums and photos (we rarely print anything anymore, but these are pre-digital.) A few books that were signed for us or we really like and a few scrapbooks. I would not be crushed if they had to go too, but it would be nice to keep a few memories in print form.
There are a few things we would like to try and see around here before next October. We have been meaning to go to The Boston Harbor Islands (NRA) for a while now. We would also like to get the Boston stamps for our National Park Passport. Maybe the Cape Cod National Seashore ones we missed as well. We would not mind going back to Acadia NP and Minute Man NHP one more time. Stay tuned for a Boston Harbor Islands post soon!
