Fall officially arrives this Saturday, September 23rd, as we observe the Fall Equinox (when the sun is directly over the equator, and folks all over the world experience exactly the same number of hours of daylight and night).
So, how do we celebrate the arrival of Autumn? Let us count the ways: football, festivals, “leaf peeping” (yes, it’s a thing, but peak color in the North Georgia Mountains is still about 5-6 weeks away), apple-picking, and pumpkin spice, to name a few.
Of course, it’s also a great time to spruce up the house after the heat of summer, with a bit of fall cleaning (why should spring get all the credit for clean?)
Home maintenance experts recommend tackling these tasks that just don’t seem like priorities during the summer:
This is also a great time to sift through your seasonal and holiday decorations and donate or dispose of those you’ll no longer use. Use the same mindset for items such as sheets, towels, and rarely used linens that take up space in the linen closet and storage areas.
When you’re finished, reward yourself with a stroll to your local independent coffee shop and enjoy a pumpkin spice latte (or other seasonal favorite beverage).
