We are becoming much more settled in our new house, we are even starting to call it home, it is starting to feel that way.
It is interesting what you learn when you have to remedy things in a home. Creaking doors, lights that come on when no one is there… doors that slowly close on their own.
Hey, don’t watch cheesy shows like ghost hunters late at night and then expect to check out some of those things, or even turn off basement lights… I am just saying…
Creaky doors were easy, we squirted oil on the hinges. Pssst be sure to have a rag handy for when it drips.
Lights that come on by themselves were fun also, we have outdoor sensor lights, some inside too, that come on when motion is detected. So when the lights pop on, in a fenced backyard, we all peek out the windows to see who the trespasser is. Then do rock paper scissors to see who gets to check. Seems it is the wind a lot of times, but there are tiny screws on the sensors to adjust them so they are not so sensitive. great… hsp lights, but I digress.
Doors that close on their own are very annoying, I checked too, there are no ghosts closing them… I don’t think. hmmmm.
But I fixed them, well Megan helped. It is good to involve others in tasks, it makes them feel wanted and needed. ;)
