This is a great time of the year to get things done to your house. You can have your house or roof washed and cleaned, paint your interior or have your wood floors refinished. It's a nice way to keep your house in good repair so you can better enjoy it or maybe get it ready to put on the market.
If you live in the Capital Region, it's a great time of the year for a walk through the neighborhood. It also gives you a sense of what your neighbors are doing to their houses to keep them looking good.
