Working Hard Around the Yard

Hey neighbors!

Most of my neighbors are aware that we now have a gorgeous deck out back that has been roofed over.  It is GREAT!  Even in the cold weather we are enjoying it, but alot of work went into the building of the deck and the roof.  Not to mention, we also put together an aluminum shed for our rabbits.  I don't know how often we were lugging a ladder from place to place.

Anyway, I wanted to ask if any of my neighbors has ever used The Little Giant Ladder System?  I have heard they are very easy to use and convenient in all kinds of situations.  They can be used in so many different ways.  Apparently you can shape them in different positions if needed.  I know my daughter and I could have used something like this when putting the roof of the shed on!  Remember, we decided to show the boys we could do it all by ourselves.  I will confess we had to call them out once or twice so we would have an extra pair of hands.

Personally I think we did a pretty good job.  It did take us a little longer than we expected though!  Next on our list is to move the dog kennels under cover.  They already have canvas roofs, but we want them under an aluminum roof.  Here we go again!  I will post pictures when we are done.  Hopefully we won't have to wait for spring.

See you soon!

We have a Little Giant Ladder System. We purchased to help make a platform by making it into an upside down v with a board stretching to a landing on our stairs. This way, we could paint and do wall repair without being on a ladder.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
