Humpday Help – Spring Tips

It’s been rather nice in Michigan this week. Sun has been shining every day, the snow is melting and my spring flowers are peaking out. I know it’s a bit early, but I’m already thinking of Spring Cleanup and various projects I want to do. My tip to all of you who are beginning to feel Spring Fever is to not try to do everything yourself.

Sure you can pull out the power tools for that project or deck you want built, but I highly recommend finding someone more qualified and experienced to do the job. Be sure to check for references and look at their work.

As for yard cleanup, I suggest getting help for that too. We don't need a repeat of those pulled muscles like last year! Why don’t you offer the job to that nice young man down the street?

Look for a man who’s good with his hands. After all, you don’t want just any man tending your garden.

Oh, try not to be too distracting. After all… you need the work done right.

Always remember when you have help, try to be subtle when keeping an eye on him. You never know when he might take a break to go skateboarding or something.

The best tip comes from Mother. She always said, "Offer refreshments. He will very grateful and might tackle that extra work you've been needing done."
