It’s Oklahoma State Fair time! The fair started Thursday and since I can remember, before I was even 5 years old, my family has gone to the fair every year! Some years we’ve celebrated my birthday or my Dad’s birthday or we’ve just gone to eat fair food, shop, and people watch! What fun memories!
What’s your favorite food at the fair? Mine is the grilled corn on the cob(only because I have celiac). My families favorites are the corn dogs from Wanda’s stand. Yes we know her name. She’s located right by the old needle around the main circle of the fairgrounds. In the past we have loved the Silver Dollar cinnamon rolls that have been there since I was just a tiny tot. Oh and the Wisconsin fried cheese. Yummy! My mouth is watering!
Unpacking the Boxes is a 10-week class for women in the Edmond and Oklahoma City area. The class is inspired by Susan Miller’s book After the Boxes are Unpacked: Moving On After Moving In. Women from the Memorial Road Church of Christ run the weekly meetings. The class is designed to help women connect with other women who are new to area. Bible-based lessons will help you learn to move past the pain and loss of what you’ve left behind and toward an appreciation of your new community. You will have an opportunity to meet other newcomers in the Edmond area and build friendships by sharing relocation challenges, memories of “home,” and common interests. The optional book may be purchased on the first day of class.
Class meets Wednesday mornings, 9:30-11:30, at Memorial Road Church of Christ, 2221 E. Memorial Road, from September 5 to November 14. Child care is provided.

Okay, so this isn’t the sexiest topic but maintenance is so critical to well… maintaining the integrity of your property! Some things are more important than others but it can be hard to differentiate what you really need to keep on top of and what you can get away with doing once a year. When something slips through the cracks (maybe literally) year after year there are potential pitfalls lying in wait that could cost you dearly. Let us remind you to not forget about these particular maintenance tasks and hopefully you’ll get to save your hard earned money in the end!
Roof and gutter maintenance
Oh, leaves in my gutter? How cute! Fall! Then BOOM, you’ve got overflowing gutters, foundation damage, and drainage issues. Don’t indulge your sentimental side here, leaves in the gutter can cost you a lot of money in the damage they can do! It’s easy to forget to do this since you probably don’t check out your roof very much. Be sure to to check out your roof too! You can have minor cracks that you probably won’t notice if you’re not looking for them. They can allow water to slowly enter into your home and cause damage to ceilings and walls which will also rack up the bill! Be sure to spend some quality time with your roof and gutters, your wallet will thank you!
Creepy Crawler Critter Maintenance Unless you’re really alright with raccoons as roommates you might want to listen up. You’re careful… it’s not like you leave all your doors and windows open all the time and leave out bowls of cat food everywhere (to the people who identify with everything I just said… you might have raccoons). But even not doing those things can set you up with critters if you’re not being diligent about safeguarding the rest of your house. It’s easy to disregard those venty looking things sticking just slightly off your house but that’s exactly where your friendly family of squirrels will climb up in the winter time. Place mesh over vent faces and cover up any access points leading to underneath the house. Save yourself from waking up in the middle of the night to a mouse trying to make a nest in your hair and save yourself from hiring a pest control guy!
Chimney Maintenance I doubt that chimney cleaners look like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins anymore but nonetheless be sure to step in time and be sure to inspect your chimney and have it cleaned regularly (how about that Mary Poppins reference, huh?)! It’ll make it easier for you to spot cracks should the ever appear! If you do happen to find cracks in the bricks of the flue or there are gaps in the mortar on the outside of the chimney between the bricks, your home could be in trouble. This sort of damage could ultimately bring the chimney down on your roof if you’re not careful! That’s why regular maintenance and inspection is so important!
