HVAC System


The first thing that you are going to need to do is check your HVAC system. Make sure that you are checking both the heating and air conditioning side of things. While you won’t need the AC in the cold months, it’s easier to get an air conditioning repair appointment when people aren’t really using theirs, than when everyone is having issues. As such, check your HVAC system, and ensure that everything is in working order. This way, you don’t have to worry that you’re going to freeze, but you’re also covered for next summer as well!


Safety


Another thing that you have got to think about is safety. Have you been through your home, checked your roof, ensured that all doors and windows are secure, and so on? If you haven’t, you need to do this as soon as possible. Safety is paramount for your home, and we don’t want to see you compromise on this. If for even the smallest moment you think that something isn’t safe, you need to do something about it. An example would be if you think there is a leak in the roof. This can be a disaster, especially during the winter so don’t let it be a problem, get it sorted.


Candles And Blankets


Finally, the winter months are coming which means you’re going to want blankets and candles in your home for that cozy feeling. You can curl up on the couch after a long, hard day and watch something or read a good book. There is nothing quite like being cuddled up on the couch on a cold day, with candles lit around you and just relaxing. There is too much stress in life as it is, so when the colder months come, it’s the perfect time to be able to create the perfect living room for relaxing. If you can think of any more comforts for cold weather such as slippers, make sure to add them to your living room too!


We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you need to do in order for your home to be ready for the approaching colder months. Time is getting on, and soon it will be early sunsets and dark nights. When this time comes around, you need to make sure that your home is ready, so we hope that this advice has helped.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
