Memorial Day in New Hampshire

Last weekend we travelled to our chalet in New Hampshire for the long Memorial Day weekend.  The forecast was for cool wet conditions, and it didn't disappoint us!  We managed to fit in a few short walks with Kokee between the rain showers and we tackled several home renovation projects.   The major project was installing a laminate cork floor in the upstairs bedroom, and this took most of our time.  It was harder physical work than we recalled from the last time we did this, and by Monday evening we were well and truly exhausted!

Cats with good taste in beds

Dear Kokee
We made room for you. Come in over.

Dear Kokee...

Dear Kokee,

We've kidnapped your bed, and you're not getting it back!

Blueberries! Looks like it will be a good year.

It looks like a good berry season at Hangman Hill. The gooseberries have formed and should be ready in a few weeks! Send recipes.

Saturday at the Goodspeed Opera House

We spent Saturday evening at the Goodspeed Opera House with Gene and Kathy. Damn Yankees, a musical tale of the long rivalry between the Red Sox and the Yankees, was a lively show. Some of the inside jokes were lost on us, the big baseball fans that we are! Still it was a fun evening and always nice to spend time with Gene and Kathy. Also, we always manage to enjoy fine weather when we go to the Goodspeed. The lovely setting on the the Connecticut River alone is a treat.

Weekend in Raleigh

We traveled to Raleigh,NC this weekend to visit DiAnn, Sheri's mom, and Mike. We celebrated DiAnn's birthday and Mother's Day. Between the festivities we enjoyed some long walks, a trip to the Farmers' market and a stroll in downtown Raleigh. We hope to bring some warm weather and green trees back to New England!

First trip of year to Olympia Tea Room

Last week we made an early season visit to the Olympia Tea Room for dinner. It was a nice evening, so we were able to have cocktails outside before eating. After dinner we went to the Granite Theater in Westerly to take in a show. Summer is almost here!
