We're heading in to our first awesome fall weekend, and the weather is going to be perfect! I'm sure trips to the apple orchard and evening bonfires are high on the priority list for this weekend, but make sure to save a little time for home maintenance.

I am not trying to be a kill joy, but isn't doing chores much more tolerable when the weather isn't brutal? The fact is our homes need to be prepared for the winter, and some of these maintenance projects require being outdoors. Added bonus for sure!

Don't worry, you won't be the only one doing chores on a beautiful weekend. My weekend plans contain aerating our yard. Correction, my husband will be aerating the yard. I will be putting up Halloween decorations.

Whatever you do this weekend, make sure it involves some outdoor fun. This beautiful weather won't stick around for long. Dang, there I go being Debbie Downer again. I apologize.
