Winter is coming and we’ve started working to prepare our yard and garden for winter and now it’s time to get the house ready for winter too.
Can you believe I still have plants on my enclosed front porch? It’s getting cold out and usually by now I have all those plants indoors but I haven’t brought any of them in yet. I guess I’d better do that very soon.
We’ve also been doing things like cleaning our windows so that we go into the winter with clean windows. One side of our house is covered in plaster dust it seems from our neighbors renovations and we’ve been trying to get the dirt off our windows for a while .. I think it’s almost gone.
I think some time this weekend I’ll also go into our basement storage area and look at our Halloween and Christmas Decorations. I haven’t decorated for either holiday for a couple of years but this year I might decorate for both. I usually decorate the front porch and front yard. It’s quite festive. Of course it’s a little early for the Christmas stuff .. but I can make sure the lights work and so on.
One other thing I’d like to do is get a new door mat. The one that we have now is getting old and tired looking. It’d be nice to get a custom door mat perhaps with our names on it or a custom greeting. One of my brothers used to always have a custom door mat and I always thought it was a nice touch.
Have started getting your house and yard ready for the cool season – if you have a cool season that is? It’s a bit of work isn’t it?
