Sweatshirt weather and Honey-Do List season is officially here! It’s the time of year where fresh coats of paint are applied, windows are replaced, roofs are winterized, and endless cups of tea and coffee are enjoyed by all as the days fly by. While the leaves change and school goes back full-time, this is the perfect time to complete tasks you contemplated about over the hot summer!
When the heat subsides and the weather holds out for the crisp, autumn days, it’s the perfect time to take care of the exterior of your home. This tradition of home makers and hard workers showcases our desire to perfect and maintain our homes so they last for future generations and memories which haven’t been made yet. And while it doesn’t seem glamorous, cleaning gutters is an essential part in maintaining the homestead before the long winter months ahead. Cleaning out leaves, stick, and other debris prevents clogs – water can seep into the foundation and ice dams during the winter can form as a result if not done every season. It’s always important to remember to have help if needed. When reaching for high places, it’s crucial to be aware of safety regulations given to us by the tools we use. Have a working partner with you – after all, the more hands, the merrier!
Repainting walls or even your front door is a subtle, easy way to bring new life and personality into your home without overinvesting. Bring in new color palates to redefine your space – match the interior color of your walls to one of your favorite paintings, go neutral with a cream to bring in color with accessories, or simply put a fresh coat of the current color to make everything look sleek and trim for the upcoming holidays. This type of maintenance and house care is just as important because you’re taking time to reinvent the inside of your home, even if you’re simply fixing cracks or paint chips!
Now that autumn is coming, this is the perfect time to showcase handmade DIY decorations of pumpkin nametags, paper hand turkeys and wreaths of rainbow corn and pinecones. Whether you do them yourself to fill the time during these current circumstances or have family craft time, you’ll bring happiness to yourself and others as you fill your home with Fall decorations created by those you love the most – Make the most of this time and celebrate the rich colors, Fall flavors, and inviting warmth of family!
