Thanksgiving


  • During the busyness of Thanksgiving, it’s easy to forget the most important part of the holiday – being thankful!  Here are some tips to help you and your family focus on the true reason for the season. Make a Gratitude List There’s always a reason to be thankful. List out everything you’re grateful for – start general (family, friends, your home, etc.) and get more specific. You’ll be amazed at all the blessings you can count when you really dwell on being thankful.  Consider buying a gratitude journal for yourself and your family members, or check out these other creative ways to list your blessings.

  • As Thanksgiving draws near, here are some tips to make sure your home is ready for all the festivities! Check Your Smoke Alarms If you didn’t check your smoke alarm batteries when daylight savings time began, you’ll definitely want to do so before you prepare the big Thanksgiving meal. Check the batteries in each of your smoke detectors to be sure they alert you to potential fires from unattended candles, ovens left on, and other holiday hazards. Safety-Proof Your Home Eliminate any potential hazards for your littlest guests. Get down on your hands and knees to get a “kid’s eye” view of anything that could cause harm, including exposed outlets, pet food bowls, access to stairs, and breakable items within their reach. If you have older guests, remove tripping hazards such as cords and rugs, and ensure there is sufficient walking… Read More

  •               With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, here are a few tips to make sure your home is ready for all the festivities! Shine Your Silver Make sure your best silver is extra-shiny for the Thanksgiving meal.  Skip the harsh chemicals and clean the all-natural way – place your silverware in an aluminum or enamel pot and boil with water, salt, and baking soda. After three minutes, remove the pieces, place in warm, soapy water and scrub with a soft cloth. Call the Plumber The day after Thanksgiving is among the busiest for plumbers, particularly for sink drains and garbage disposals clogged with animal fat and grease, and starchy foods that expand in the pipes. If your drains are already running slow, schedule a plumber to unclog them before Thanksgiving Day. Fireproof Your Home Between the cooking, baking,… Read More

  • Thanksgiving Day is almost here!  Consider these ideas to help make your holiday memorable and stress-free. Clean out your fridge and freezer. One of the perks of cooking a huge Thanksgiving feast is the leftovers you will have for days and weeks to come!  The week of the holiday, assess what is in your freezer and refrigerator, and discard anything that is old or unlikely to be eaten. Plan your menu. Turkey is a given, but what about the rest of the meal?  Your menu may include traditional sides such as mashed potatoes and green bean casserole, or you may want to introduce a new dish this year.  Some guests may have dietary restrictions – make sure there is enough variety for everyone to enjoy their meal. Think about your seating areas. Are you planning an intimate dinner, or a… Read More
