How was your weekend? Saturday was absolutely gorgeous outside, and we were able to pack away the last bit of outdoor stuff and pick up a bunch of leaves. If you haven’t invested in a leaf blower vac, I highly suggest it (well, my husband does since he’s the one who actually uses it!). Not only does it make the job quicker and a whole lot easier on the back, it also shreds the leaves meaning less bags. Sunday we woke up to rain that quickly turned to snow, so I was happy to have my outdoor pillows and ceramic pots tucked safely away. If you read Friday’s post where I kicked off the Holiday Countdown for 2013, then you know I have one item checked off on my to-do list- “Winterizing the yard and house”- yay!
One thing I still want to do is change our thermostat to a programmable one. Because I work from home, we don’t adjust the temperature lower during the day unless we’re leaving for a while. However, lowering it at night even a degree is probably a good idea to save on energy costs. Do you do this already?
