Hope you are enjoying your weekend! The weather is beautiful here so…
TODAY’S CHALLENGE: Get outside and put anything away for the winter that you can! Rake leaves, clean up the yard and finish up anything outside that needs to be done. If you feel inspired, go ahead and work on Christmas Lights outside or put Garland on your porch…things like that can be done now while the weather is decent outside! If you wait until closer to Thanksgiving, the COLD may not inspire you to be outside to decorate. P.S….Just because you are putting stuff out, doesn’t mean you have to turn lights on now…I don’t turn mine on until the day after Thanksgiving…you are just being PREPARED!
Whatever you do today outdoors, Have a Joyful Day and I’ll see you tomorrow!
TODAY’S CHALLENGE: Do you put Christmas Lights outside? Today, I want you to take a look at your inventory, test your lights and see what you have and what you might need! Go ahead and start stringing your lights on trees while its not freezing cold outside! Then when you are ready to turn them on the day after Thanksgiving, or whenever you like to do so, all you have to do is plug them in! I do this every year and I’m always so glad I do. I like to decorate our evergreen trees so it’s nice to get them done early and mark that off my list!
Even if you don’t usually do lights outside, I encourage you to do some this year. One little tree or bush? It doesn’t take much. Most retailers are already stocking their shelves with lights so it’s simple to find some.
Here are some of my favorite things for working with lights…
The Light Keeper REALLY works! This is my main tool to use. I’ve saved SO many strands of lights using this handy tool!
Need to reach high trees? No problem! Use an extension pole with a handy hook attachment!
Let your lights shine and have a Joyful Day!
