Autumn is in the Air

Hello everybody,
 
This month’s blog post is guest written by me – Andrew! Welcome to October. Autumn is in the air and as we welcome the rain back -- I often find it (the rain!) on my glasses. I love the smell of rain...so fresh! I sincerely love summer and will miss the warm breezes and bright light. But pages turn, and as the days get shorter I realize how much I enjoy the muted colors of an overcast sky and the vibrant saturated colors of the green turning to red to brown leaves that still adorn our trees. I entertain family time fantasies of fires in the fireplace with stew or bolognaise for dinner simmering since morning. Lastly, I look forward to our post-Halloween stomachache and belly of regret because, as we all know, that candy isn’t going to eat itself. Super lastly, please let us know if we can give your family a pie for Thanksgiving. We would love to join you in November…if only in the form of a pie on your Thanksgiving table!
 
Speaking of Autumn in air, can you also smell the whiff of winter preparation? It's never too early! We have plans on our next dry spell to put away summer / outdoor furniture and to clean our gutters (full disclosure: by ‘we’ I mean our we have a company come out and clean our gutters and down spouts – please let us know if you need a referral!). As you know the gutter / downspout systems need to operate free of debris to ensure proper drainage and increase the odds our basements do not take on water. Also: here is a gentle reminder to change your air filter and have your furnace serviced & your chimney cleaned. Cover your air conditioner's condenser unit (that big loud thing outside!). Check your insulation and seal windows & doors. Lastly – order some new slippers and a cozy flannel shirt. I think we would all agree after the last 18+ months we deserve it!! 

 
As always and forever, please feel free to contact us anytime for referrals for home maintenance or anything else! All our best to you and yours!
