Spring and Summer Home Maintenance Tips

If you’re thinking about home renovations or repairs, spring and summer are the perfect times to get started. Before cold weather arrives, take a look at some important home maintenance projects that need to take priority before you begin home remodeling projects.

Inspect Your Roof

During warm weather, inspect your roof for damage. You’ll need to go up your roof to look for signs of damages that need repairs. Get rid of leaves, twigs, branches and any debris that has blown onto the roof. Any debris can cause damage to roof shingles and gutters. Check for missing or damaged shingles, split, dented or broken gutters, damaged flashing and chimney cracks. If you see extensive damage or you have an old roof, consider roof replacement.

Repair Or Replace Windows

Inspect all windows and glass doors for damages and leaks. If your home has older windows that are wood, you may need to re-glaze and re-caulk to protect the glass and wood frames and mullions. During storms and high winds, glass can break, crack, chip, and dent, so you may need to replace the glass. If you’re in a home with old, original windows, consider replacing them with new, energy-efficient windows to save money and update your home’s appearance. Windows that are Energy Star qualified, can save you up to 30 percent on yearly home heating and cooling costs.

Check for Drainage Problems

Spring showers can cause drainage problems. Before fall arrives, inspect your property and gutters for standing water. If you have standing water in your gutters, you can end up with roof and siding damage. Standing water in your yard can cause grass and plants to die, moss and fungus to grow, and bring unwanted mosquitoes and outdoor pests to your home. If your yard doesn’t drain properly, adding a French drain will often fix the drainage problems at a reasonable cost. Eliminate standing water on your property to prevent safety and health concerns.

Check for Unwanted Guests

Winter weather can take a toll on your house, as well as small animals seeking shelter. Inspect your attic, basement and crawl spaces to make sure no critters have taken refuge. Cool, hidden spaces attract small animals like birds, chipmunks, squirrels and rodents. If you see any signs of these unwanted critters, you may need to contact professional help to remove the critters and resolve the problems. If you need a home inspection, you can find out more now about inspection services at web.com.

My summer babe’s Kindle is not charging

I feel bad that she cannot play her kindle. It has been four days or and still her Kindle is not charging. I do not know if I will buy her a new Kindle or not. I do not waste her Dad’s money. All she does in her Kindle is play her Mine Craft. She got it from Santa couple years ago. She is using my Nook. Tomorrow I will bring my Nook with me to my New York City trip. It is my only access of internet. I also read electronic books in my Nook. I am not sure if I will leave or bring my Nook with me. I will wait until tonight if her Kindle will charge or not. I will leave my Nook for her tomorrow so she can play. I will hang out my with girlfriends in New York City for four days. I can read my paperback with me. I am glad that I have the paperback for the book review.

How to keep your luggage noticeable with label daddy

I cannot believe that today is a week from my New York City trip. I am very excited. I cannot wait to explore The Empire city. Despite leaving in the state of New York, I have never been to New York city. This is my very first time to explore the city with four of my girl friends.

I admit that claiming our luggage is not easy. There are luggage that exactly look like yours. It does not help if you are in hurry to catch up nother flight. Luckily this time we only have one flight to reach New York City. I am thankful that Label Daddy sent me a sample of their luggage tags. I really loved this luggage tags. I LOVED that is pink in color.

You can create your own style and colors of luggage tags. I received 11 luggage tag labels. There are 4 large circles, 4 medium circles and 3 contact info. This luggage tag label is washable too. You can peel and stick it to your luggage tags so it is easy for you to grab your luggage. Unfortunately, this luggage tag label does not work in leather.

Meet my new car Toyota Camry

This is my third car since I passed my driving test. I am very fortunate that hubby bought me new car. I never ride a used car before. He said that I am carrying precious cargo with me all the time. I deserve a new car if something happen to us on the road while am driving. Safety is the most important for him. I do appreciated his love for all of us especially for the kids.

I never expected to get this new baby of mine. I know that our least of the car will due in three months. He was just looking around and found this dealership that will never let him go unless he got a new car. I want you to meet my new girl Camry. It is from Toyota model. I wish there is another color but hubby likes this color the most. Who am I to disagree, right?

These are things that I love about my new car. I LOVED that it has a rear view camera which is easy for me to back up and see if something is behind me. I also LOVE that there is an arrow for blind spot which I did not use it yet. I LOVE that it has blue tooth. I can drive my car at the same time talking to somebody if I get a call without holding the phone.

The only thing I do not like it is. The speedometer is not in my dashboard. It has a manual speedometer. Above all Camry my new girl rocks.

I want to say thank you sweetheart for this new ride. I hope that I can keep her clean and smooth all the time.

My new TJ Maxx credit card

This is the only credit card that I used. I always shop at TJ Maxx and finally apply for a new credit card. I am thinking it for a long time if I apply or not. I told my hubby about it. It was fine with him so I did applied.

I also got my first $10 coupon after using my credit card. My hubby is paying for my TJ Maxx credit card bill. I seldom used it. I usually buy clothes for my kids. There clothes are all designer brands at cheaper prizes. My son loves his golf clothes from TJ Maxx.

How about you? Do you own a credit card too? How many do you own? Do you shop often and use your credit card?

How to easy for your kids to practice playing guitar

I remember when my summer babe still learning how to play guitar. She does not play acoustic guitar. She only plays regular guitar. I know that I plan to give her a gift like this acoustic guitar holder for Christmas. Unfortunately she stopped playing the guitar. We still have her guitar keep in her guitar case. I want to learn it by myself. We both love to play music. I do not know how to play any instrument though. Do you think she will help Mommy how to play the guitar. This would be fun bonding with my summer babe.

What a beautiful day to wash my car

I have driven almost five years now. I am still a very new driver. I learned new things every time I drive. It is a daily learning process. I am still afraid to drive through highways. I have to learn how to merge before I can drive highways. I am awesome with regular roads and try to stay away from aggressive or road rage drivers.

 

My baby Chevrolet Malibu is all cleaned and ready to get dirty again.

Yesterday was a very warm day. My hubby and I spent a lot of time outside. I washed my car. It saves me money than go in the car wash.All you need is hose, a bucket full of soapy water and big sponge. You also need a towel to dry it up.

It was fun cleaning my car. It is a Chevrolet Malibu, She looks so clean and ready to get dirty again .
