March is here and spring has sprung, which means for a lot of people, it’s time to check some things off your list of spring cleaning and maintenance. Here are some spring car prep tips to get you started on taking care of your vehicle.
Wash Your Car
Winter leaves all kind of dirt and grime on cars that you wouldn’t even realize – for example, salt stuck up in the undercarriage, or dirt left behind by snow. Give your car a thorough spring cleaning to make it shine again.
Don’t Overlook Your Wipers
Spring means rain, which means you should probably swap out your wiper blades and refill the wiper fluid reservoir.
Inspect Your Tires
Check tread depth on your tires and also make a point to fill them up to the recommended tire pressure; cold temperatures cause tires to deflate faster.
While Thanksgiving is usually packed full of traditions, most of those family traditions usually involve food and the way it is prepared. If you’ve been aching to try something new this year, but don’t want to mess with the menu, consider adding some of these Thanksgiving traditions to your annual feast.
Eat breakfast. While some families have a strict “no breakfast” rule, why not indulge yourself? Search the internet for an intriguing fall-themed breakfast, such as this pumpkin pie breakfast bake.
Go for a walk. While this holiday is all about indulging on our favorite holiday foods, getting a little bit of exercise will lessen the stress of the day and perhaps even increase your appetite.
Create a thankful tree. Cut out colorful leaf-shaped pieces of paper. Have all of your guests write down what they are thankful for and attach them to the tree. You can share all the thankfulness over dinner.
Let the kids help. While toddlers and preschoolers may not be up to the task, older kids can definitely lend a hand. Put them in charge of dessert and they can take orders and serve.
Make a toast. Let everyone around the table make a toast. It will bring the family together and help slow down the meal.
