From my favorite window, I’m gazing out at the landscape, noting spring’s late arrival this year in our Northwest Corner.
Birds dart from tree to tree, grass is finally green, and a fine mist is making its presence felt with splatters on the windowpane. And yes, the roving threesome of deer have just come into view. A pretty pastoral scene.
Spring is a time of renewal for ourselves and our homes. Winter always creates projects requiring our attention in the interior and exterior of our homes. Has paint peeled indoors or out, requiring touch-up? Fireplaces and woodstoves should be cleaned, and how about the chimneys?
A septic system needs to be pumped every two to three years and its condition checked. Remember to schedule the annual heating system tune-up. Testing the fire alarms and other safety systems is a must. And lots to do outdoors. Great exercise!
