Why should the kids have all the fun? For this week’s celebration I went looking for some delicious treats and drinks for the grown-ups to enjoy – whether you’re off to a party or looking for something festive to nibble on while pulling door duty to pass out candy to neighborhood trick or treaters! I found a cauldron of good ideas from the folks at MyRecipes.com. From the spicy orange “bat” wings, to the roasted red pepper deviled eggs, to the peanut butter caramel corn and more – you’re sure to find a few new family favorites from their list of 48 treat recipes! See them all here. Wishing you a not so spooky week, lots of fun, and remember, I’m here if you need me!
DIY Tip for the Week
Lower humidity and cooler (not yet cold) temperatures make fall a good time to paint the exterior of your home.
Real Estate Tip of the Week
If you’re selling your home, between showings, home upkeep is vital. Dry mop to remove dust and dirt that you track in every evening. Vacuum area rugs and entryway mats daily and keep toys at bay. Keep a focus on curb appeal. Continue to clear sidewalks, driveways, decks, and patio spaces. While it is extra work – it will pay off when the right buyer comes through the door.
Words of Wisdom
October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations above them once again. – Hal Borland
All things on earth point home in old October; sailors to sea, travelers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken. – Thomas Wolfe
In October, a maple tree before your window lights up your room like a great lamp. Even on cloudy days, its presence helps to dispel the gloom. – John Burroughs
A wind has blown the rain away and blown the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand. I think, I too, have known autumn too long. – e. e. cummings
