Papa’s World – Where did the time go? New build – garage and entry.

Our new home being built in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – Brunswick County – N.C.

As you can see – the garage has a entrance directly into the hallway and laundry room!

Our life has evolved – from NVA to S.C. and eventually N.C.

All in the span of some nine months!

Where has the time gone – and when did those 40 years fly by?

We started dating in early 1981 – married in June of 1982 –

and today – building a house!

The garage with Sherry looking into the laundry room and the kitchen straight down the hall.

The garage has a overhead storage area with pull down steps.

The three entrance doors are leaning against the walls.

There is a pipe coming up out of the cement floor that I have no idea what it is for!

We are hoping to be in by early June!

We have a storage unit nearby and have our belongings in there.

The beginnings of the kitchen – island and the breakfast nook – bump out window and beyond the covered over windows – the screened in covered lanai!

The walls have been coated on the bottom with a termite barrier!

The floor plates are bolted down into the cement

and metal corner braces to code for hurricanes installed!

Solid construction to N.C. building codes.

The vaulted living room and the extended sun room and to the right – the master bedroom and bath and closet.
Sherry inspecting our office – where we will do our home based internet business – http://www.sf.juiceplus.com – which will have french doors – and beyond her is the hall and laundry room and to the right the kitchen.

It was exciting to tour on a Sunday with no one around!

The spare bath – just across the hallway of the office and to the left and right will be two bedrooms.

This is the third house that we have had built – most likely our last – both of us will be 72 !

If you wish to see more of the build – visit my previous blog

Where did the time go?

It has the pictures of the rest of the house!

The living room – sun room – breakfast nook – kitchen and beyond the patio and screened in covered lanai!

WELCOME FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO OUR HOME!

Papa’s World – Where did the time go?

Our new home we are building in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

We are building a new home – and where did the past almost 40 years go?

In fact – it seems like only yesterday – 1999 – we transferred to NVA from WNY!

Today – we are on another chapter of our life together.

And in a few months time – our house will be done and we will move in!

The back of the house – patio – and bump out window of the master bedroom – and behind sherry – will be all windows of the sun room.

This will be our third house we have built together.

Time has a way of just moving ahead and so fast!

The front porch and entrance to the front door.

We decided to build here – instead of buying – mainly because

We will have everything we want – for basically the same price!

The front door looking into the main hall way.

Everything in our price range we looked at – had to have updates –

or did not have a garage, or too small.

After coming in the front door – office to the left – bedroom to the right – and living room and sun room straight ahead.

NEXT BLOG : WHERE DID TIME GO- PART TWO!

Papa’s World – The power to take your life in a new direction!

It was not easy to decide to sell our home – almost everything in it –

and move to another state – some 450 miles away!

It all started with the stock market slide – around the time the Pandemic hit!

Our retirement is in the 401 K and it took a big hit!

But – there is always a but!

The housing market was taking off!

From the last reduction in prices around 2006 –

and losing in that market –

We were now almost even – a rebound!

And it was going up!

Our oldest grand kids – Maddy Sarah Ella

With the three oldest grand kids

One in college – one in the fall in college and one who has a life of her own

And the three little ones – we would make it a point to return often –

after all – we were retired – and Sherry had her home based business –

that could go anywhere with phone and internet service

We would sell!

AND WE DID!

After 14 1/2 years – with the downturn behind us in the housing market

WE MADE A PROFIT and had all of our equity!

We followed our plan – sold our house and furniture –

for three months we went back and forth between our daughters houses!

We had our equity to either rent – or buy – we had choices!

And then by chance – I stumbled upon this – having no thought of moving to S.C. !

Our view today – we left end of September and went to North Myrtle Beach to Ocean Keyes!

Since that time – we have been home twice – holidays for three weeks – and now for a week!

The grand kids have been down – the little ones – and by the time you read this –

the older ones will have been here!

Our family – when we returned for a visit.

Our family when they came to visit!

We have started a new life – away but close enough to make it home in seven hours.

We are happy in our senior years – living life to the plus each day!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

A new life – walking the beach every day –

We have each other – we have family and we have friends.

It was not easy – but God works in ways I can not explain.

We have started a new life and a new house build!

It will be done around the early part of June!

We had no idea a year ago we would be doing this!

Papa’s World – The years of our life together – now building a house!

While we differ on many issues – the one thing that brings us together is being friends – the other is love and finally understanding and respect – admiration and equality!

1981 – was our first date – 16 months later – we married.

June 25th. 1982

FRIENDS – then and still today – my best friend.

LOVE – forty years later – still love each other.

UNDERSTANDING AND RESPECT – she smiles – often – she laughs often –

She understands me – guides me – I get lost! lol

I respect her – guide when I am able –

She in turn respects my thoughts – cares and understandings.

Debby Papa Sherry

ADMIRATION AND EQUALITY – two aspects that I have based my life on.

Both of these two are leaders – mother and daughter – SSC and QMND – The Juice Plus Company.

Home based business done over the internet – no inventory – just take a order – submit – everything

else is done by the company – they even collect the payment – 26 years in business- 21 countries. SOLID!

Today we have started building a new home – in Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

We – one year ago – had no thoughts of doing this – both are in our early ’70’s.

Things happen and change – roll with the flow – relocate – but still only a day away from family.

Our first purchases for our new home.

We have been busy – planning – buying furniture to be delivered – as we had sold all of ours!

We will miss this view – but – we have enjoyed it for nine months! MEMORIES!

Today we continue our journey – in a couple months we will celebrate 39 years of marriage.

Papa’s World – the first household items that we could carry – and she is named Polly – The Pelican!

Good day everyone!

We have been furniture hunting – the whole house – as we have almost nothing!

We sold it all – 98 % of it – to the folks who bought our home!

While it has been somewhat stressful for my wife –

and me being the one who does not like to shop-

I AM LOVING THIS!

Another beautiful sun rise!

Yes – that is right! When we usually go shopping – I tend to find a place –

and sit and watch people!

Maybe with a cup of coffee or a bottle of water.

I find people interesting.

You can almost tell who they are by just observing!

So – here I am – looking at furniture – and I actually like doing this!

That is completely out of norm for me.

And has turned very stressful for my wife.

But -as of this writing with hoping 3 1/2 months to go to closing

The middle of May – I can say we have now completed 95 % of what we need!

We have one sun room to finish and some end tables!

There – right in the middle opposite the front door is the sun room!

We have ended up buying from three different stores –

with what will be three different deliveries!

And I still have to get our items we have in storage delivered to N.C.!

But – we were able to hand carry three items back to the car and then back to the Condo – in Ocean Keyes!

One table lamp – one floor lamp and meet POLLY THE PELICAN!

Our theme is going to be somewhat beach like –

since we will be only four miles to Ocean Isle Beach and six miles to Sunset Beach!

All in N.C. between Calabash and Shallotte.

We contacted the three little ones and they – ( CASSIDY) came up with the name for the Pelican.

You see – there was a smaller version already in the condo-

and I had told them I named it RALPH! LOL

They thought that to be funny!

THank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – New home – the build begins – living our dreams.

As the day begins at the condo – the build of our new home begins some six-teen miles away – in Cameron Woods at Ocean Isle Beach – N.C. We searched and searched – but all in vain as the cost to buy was equal or more than to build what we wanted!

Our view here I shall always remember – in all we will be here for nine months!

I captured this shot as a flock of geese were coming right at me before

rising up over the lanai and roof.

We decided to build – that way we would have everything we wanted

A single story – no stairs – covered front porch – screened in covered lanai.

Close to the beach ( four miles) in the country!

Close to golfing ( over 20 courses near by)

And with in 6 1/2 hours to travel back home

or family to travel here!

Materials for the new home – ground is ready – all utilities in and inspected – waiting for pour of concrete!
Forms and moisture barrier
Some view in one direction of neighborhood – I think in total maybe fifty homes will be here.
When done – a two car garage with pull down stairs and finished storage overhead.

We will have around 1900 sf. of heated space –

in addition to a 140 sf covered and screened in lanai

and a open 10 x 14 concrete patio.

There will be a covered front porch

and views of the neighborhood.

The back will be woods with no one building there

as it will be a conservation area.

We will be four miles to Ocean Isle Beach and six miles to Sunset Beach

A thirty minute drive back to North Myrtle Beach

and a fifthteen minute drive to Calabash

and a fifthteen minute drive to Shallotte.

All this in the middle of some twenty golf courses we will be playing!

The concrete is poured – and rain is now slowing up everything!

But – all the inspections have been completed

and our contractor calls us every Monday to give updates

and answer any questions!

The forms are out – concrete is in – framing will be next!
View of the garage and the woods behind the new build.

We drive over every Sunday – no one is working!

That way – if it is not raining – we can get out and look it over!

This will be our third house together building.

All three were unique and we have input on all of them.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – our ever changing life at Ocean Keyes -North Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Our dining room – living room – double entrance to the Lanai – and the water beyond!

We first rented this for three months – not knowing where we would be.

Then in November – after six weeks of house hunting –

We decided it was just as cost effective to build!

You see – in our price range – we found a lot of houses – condo’s

But each one we liked – there had to be things done!

When you are like me – this can happen! LOL

We could do these things – but it would take time and money.

Plus – another cost was to furnish it!

We sold almost all our furniture – and you can not just hire someone

Most will put you on a list!

Playing a game while eating dinner on the Lanai!

So – we extended our time here – and found a building development

one half hour away into N.C. – close to two beaches for our walks and company

And made our selections – everything we wanted and still in our price range.

What we will be doing off and on until our house is built! Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We will be here until the end of June!

Our house is suppose to be finished by the end of May!

That will give us time to get our stored stuff moved down here

and Sherry does what she loves to do – SHOP!

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – back home now is Ocean Keyes – beach – S.C.

Papa – walking the beach – after spending Christmas in NVA!

When we moved 21 years ago – from Western New York –

to Northern Va. my thought was we are now in the South!

We actually picked up another four to six weeks of better weather

on either side of winter!

We liked the area – going into Washington DC on a regular basis.

We purchase three homes while there – two that we actually built.

We had most of our family follow us there.

But – it still got cold and three times –

an accumulation of snow greater than in all the 50 years we lived in the snow belt!

You can change your looks – but mother nature does what it wants to do!
Although I am not going into the water – 2 days before New Years eve – people in the water on North Myrtle Beach!

Now – we are calling this home until our home we are building if finished

some time in the next 4 to 6 months!

The first thing we did the next day after returning HOME – was do our walk on the beach!

Home has a different meaning now – and we have become comfortable now here.

Enough that when you have that yearning to go back home

visions of what awaits you run through your mind!

We both have always been drawn to the surf – beach – water and sand.

While dating almost 40 years ago – we spent a week in the outer banks

with my brother and some of his friends.

That is when our bond for the ocean became a fixed state in our minds.

Our Vacations revolved around different trips with our children

to beaches up and down the East coast!

It was a fun time in our early life together – the kids remember and have carried on the tradition of beach vacations!
Sherry – walking while running her internet – network marketing business – http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

Home is where the heart is – and while we could not find a home here –

we are building one close – 14 miles away at another beach address –

OCEAN ISLE BEACH in North Carolina!

It is a 30 minute drive North of here – so we can often come back to walk!

There are two beaches there within 4 to 6 miles –

Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach!

Home is where your heart is – and now our hearts are in the deeper South!

Where warm is Sun – no snow – ice – and 50 plus degrees every day!

The call of the beach – our hearts are here!

Papa’s World – Living our dreams to the plus – one day at a time!

I have been fascinated by the beach – sand – surf and the waves my entire life!

When we were firs married – we went to the beach in the Outer Banks.

Our goal each year was to take the kids to the beach for vacation.

I always dreamed of one day – to somehow work close to the beach –

I would always say ” I am going to sell hot dogs on the beach – just so I could be there”!

Papa and Sherry ( MorMor) Swedish for MothersMother!

Today – everyday where we are –

we are living that dream.

We sold our home back in NVA.

Along with most furniture

and are renting a condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach S.C.

And we walk 1/2 mile through the gated community – to the beach!

Cold weather – I was like this – warm walking weather – I am ready to go!

Anything in the Sun – mid 40’s to mid 50’s and no wind – I am for it!

But – snow – wind – ice (slip and fall) I am out of there!

We searched and searched – condo’s – homes – rentals – different areas until we realized – it was equal to just build what we want!

So – we pulled the trigger – after we said to ourselves – we do not want to renovate at our age.

We want to live our remaining lives while we can –

playing golf – exploring and walking the beaches!

When we went back home for Christmas – we had our plans and showed the kids. We were ready to go – waiting for the start date!

We made our selections before Thanksgiving – the paper work was done –

The deposit made – banking finalized –

And when we returned from NVA –

We went to the lot –

THE FORMS WERE IN TO POUR THE FOUNDATION!

Our dream is about to take place.

We have found our shopping stores – and are exploring the area –

Golfing is everywhere and the beach is four miles away!

We are on the mainland and cross the ICW to get to the beach.

Now – we will wait to get a close date-

we have to buy furniture and move from storage what we have left.

Our dream is about to become a reality – walking the beach – warm weather –

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

our 2020 has been stressful with the Pandemic

our lives are changed and social distancing the norm.

But – our dream continues on –

Papa’s World – Living life to the plus – one day at a time – blessed that I can!

Another in the series of my year in review blogs – 2020.

Well – where do I start – I have lived another year – in most cases – I wouldn’t be here!

2020 has been a very strange year – but – here I am – living through it!

For those that do not know – seven years ago I had a heart attack!

Not your normal one if there is such a thing –

but they called it a “WIDOW MAKERS” one.

I ended up with FOUR BY PASSES!

and walked out of the hospital 52 hours after surgery!

We have grand children – and I am blessed to see a picture such as this!

So – a year in review of 2020 – it is scary – frustrating – wonderful – satisfying –

nerve wracking – joyful – nail biting – and any other adjective you can throw in there!

But – here we are on another adventure – after selling our house during a pandemic – living our lives one day at a time!

You never know as I can attest – just what the day before you can bring!

Now – we are building a new home near Ocean Isles Beach – N.C.

And being careful – wearing our masks when we are close to people and inside!

I see no sane reason to refuse to do that because it infringes on your liberties!

Come on you folks – who protest this – it is a common being nice sort of thing!

We old folks – well we have been around and wish to continue to be around –

so just wear them – it will not hurt you – and it may save me from covid19!

There – that is my take on the pandemic!

It is indeed a strange year – one of challenges but joy when you see your family!

ZOOM is now a big part of that – staying in touch with virtual meetings –

church and religion – shopping and home delivery!

And the times you spend with friends after quarantine!

We stay safe so we can enjoy friends – getting tested – being careful –

2020 has brought many strange things into our lives –

Who could imagine every day walking the sands and surf of the beach!

2020 – with all its quirks – and I am living to see it!

So – you see – I count my days as blessings – no matter what comes before me.

Yep – happens to me – but who cares!

In this past year – we have become more and more dependent on each other.

We have become closer to family if that is at all possible.

2020 has taught me things –

2020 has in a way – been a comfort for me in that we are once again

on a adventure – every day – planning – looking – exploring!

The sun rises with the one you love!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
