Fall Chores: What Fun!

Do you take down your window screens and store them for the winter? If not, you might consider it. They might endure less wear-and-tear from storms. I wrap mine in an old sheet in the garage, to make cleaning them easier before putting them up in the spring. Are any torn? Needing repair? Maybe do it now, rather than in the spring when, on that first lovely day when you want to put them up, you remember that, oops, some work is needed. Also, if you take care of them now, you won’t be “competing” with everyone else needing that service.

With the screens gone, you’ll probably enjoy more light during the darker months. How to get even more light? Part of my task is washing the windows, to be repeated in the spring when attaching the screens.
