Even though the calendar may still say Summer, the temperature and Mother Nature are saying Fall. Over the last few days the temperatures here in Michigan have plummeted from the 80’s and 90’s to 50’s and 60’s. Brrrrr, baby it’s COLD outside!
Now, my thoughts have shifted to winterizing my garden and my home. I’ve decided to embrace this early wake-up call and start getting my home, inside and outside prepared for the winter. Most of the chores are annual/routine. Starting outside I put down fertilizer on the grass to protect it from the long winter freeze and burlap bags on my shrubs and bushes.
Lately, I’ve also had to secure my garage due to the outrageous squirrel and bird infestation in my neighborhood. Over the winter months the squirrels and birds reside in my garage. They eat the wood near the bottom and burrow their way in, chewing through wires, wreaking all kinds of havoc. The birds nest and fly in and out a small hole either they made near the roof of the garage. So the birds are up high and the squirrels are down low, both causing damage.
Luckily, my local Home Depot is just a few blocks away and they carry everything I need to winterize my home inside and out. Because one thing I must have when working around the house is MUSIC! It’s true music makes the world-go-round, calms-the -savage beast and helps me to work longer and in a better mood.
