I have purchased new boots from Sears that have a sole pattern that is similar to snow cleats. They have lots of small wedges that point towards the heal so they grip the snow or ice and they must be working because I have rarely slipped while wearing them. If you're not in the market for new boots, the strap on snow chains or ice cleats work well, just be sure to take them off when you go inside. I see lots of people wear them into businesses and not think that they are damaging the floors.
Welcomed the newest member to our family....Adeline. Both grandmas (me and Pam) traveled across the mountains to see our little grandbaby and spend some grandma time with her. Looking forward to more visits.
Here I am working the equipment while my husband, Steve, climbs up and down the hillside cutting out trees to clear the view. My job was to pull the fallen trees up the embankment on to level ground so we could load them in the truck. Later, after the logs have seasoned, we'll cut them up for firewood. You never get tired of this view!
Great time of year to spend time with family before you are overwhelmed with the holidays. My sister and mother are sharing a little mother/daughter time after church. Can't tell we are related can you?
Winter will soon be upon us, so it is very important to be pro-active in getting your home ready for cold weather. Simple things you can do to keep your water pipes from freezing are detaching your garden hoses from the outside faucets, install foam faucet covers, cover open foundation vents and check for other foundation openings. Some simple ways to insulate foundation vents are to custom cut foam sheets to tightly fit into the vent openings. Or, loosely fill plastic bags with insulation (or leaves) and place the bag into the vent opening. Be sure there are no gaps. I hope these simple steps keep your under house pipes running freely and fozen free.
