Discuss all things non-baking
This afternoon I called the local Toyota station and made an appointment for an oil change, get everything checked, maybe a tune-up - whatever is needed for winter. What are you doing to prepare for

We are bringing our plants in.  Our cold weather is only supposed to last a few days.  I live in South Georgia, so we seldom get bad, freezing weather.

GRANA  here;
We live in a condo so all building & yard prep are don by contractors who are paid from our monthly condo fee.
It reallyseems worth it when others are clibingup  laders working hard  while we enjoy a game or movie onTV  or a relaxng lunch out , together.For many years(40+) it was us climbing up ladders in wind & rain doing this winter  prep. Hubby  was right:in our retirement years,let ohers do the   work; let's relax  & enjoy life as the savings account drops lower & lower!!!!!!Frown

Grana - I live in a condo too and all my yard work is supposed to be done.  Yesterday I trimmed a couple bushes -- I knew it would not happen if I didn't do it.

We put some small plants in our little geen house , had the yard mowed and cleaned up, and had maintenance on the cars completed.

Since we have a condo at Lake Tahoe, we have a few things we have to do up there, but most is covered by the condo Assoc.  However, the biggest thing up there was the installment of new double pane windows.  That should help our gas bill!
 At our home in the San Francisco Bay Area, we had our furnace serviced, new filters, and cleaned the ducts.  Our service man realized that we were paying too much for natural gas, so he climbed under the house, and found out that the ducts had rusted out, and we were heating the crawl space instead of the house.  It was expensive to have the ducts replaced especially since we had to have asbestos removed first, but we can tell the difference already.  Oh!  the problems of maintaining an 40 year old house!!
