Local Mother’s Day Specials

This weekend is a special time for moms and their children to spend time together.  Whether your kids are young or old, it does not matter.  Whether you go out for a nice Mother’s Day Brunch, cook  at home or order take out, it does not matter.  What does matter is the time you spend together celebrating the love you have for each other!

Some of us mom’s may enjoy a day fishing, hiking or going to a local park.  I prefer to just be with my family, so a day grilling out,  fishing and planting flowers is how we plan to spend Sunday. Some may want a day out of the house exploring our local attractions, so we have put together a list of Oklahoma City attractions that are offering specials for moms this weekend.

Let the Sunshine In!

Now that winter is finally over spring cleaning is on lots of minds. What better way to let in those rays of sunshine than to make sure windows are squeaky clean!
What you use, how you clean and when you clean are all important to getting the shiny results you want. Here are a few window cleaning tips for spring.
First, choose a dry, cloudy day when the sun is not blazing, then the cleaner will not dry fast onto the hot windows before you have a chance to rinse and wipe them dry. If you really get the urge to clean your windows on a sunny day, make sure to start on the shady side of the house.
Second, remove loose soil and vacuum the sill and sash before cleaning the glass. If you skip this step you will have a muddy mess from all the liquid running down the window frames.
Third, spray your window with your cleaning solutions. There are many cleaning products available on the market. You can choose from concentrate, aerosols or ready to use sprayers, just make sure to use enough solution to dissolve the dirt so it can be easily wiped away. If you skimp on the amount of cleaner you’ll end up with streaks.
Fourth, dry the window. Time is of the essence in this step to ensure that those rays of sunshine can pour through a streak-free surface. Some like a squeegee tool, a microfiber clothe, newspaper or paper towel. A combination of using squeegee and microfiber clothe will decrease the time to complete the job. Dry the glass horizontally on the inside and vertically on the outside, so that if there is a streak, you’ll know which side it is on.
Spring is here, so let’s get out there and clean the windows so everyone can feel the warm rays of sunshine!

Tornado Prepared

Tornadoes can happen any time of year in Oklahoma, but tornado season officially started March 15th and runs through June 15th.

Especially during severe weather it is a good idea to downloaded a weather app that will alert you when to take shelter. You should also have a family plan and put together an emergency kit.

The emergency kit should have enough supplies for each member of your family to survive on for 3-5 days . If you have a storm shelter or safe room, you could put some of the following items in a plastic container and store them in the shelter.

Here is a list of suggested items to keep in your emergency kit:

  • One gallon of water per person, per day
  • Around 2,000 calories of non-perishable food per person, per day
  • A mechanical can opener
  • First-aid supplies to handle minor injuries, including splints, suture kit, antibacterial creams, bandages, and antihistamine
  • Hand-crank or battery-operated radio, preferably a NOAA weather radio
  • A week’s worth of all prescription medications
  • Hygiene items such as toothpaste, shampoo, and feminine products
  • Copies of important documents in a waterproof container; be sure to include driver’s licenses, birth certificates, social security cards, and insurance cards
  • Blankets
  • Flashlights and extra batteries
  • Cell phone charger
  • A minimal amount of money in small bills
  • An extra credit card
  • Emergency contact list, including names, telephone numbers, and addresses
  • If you have children, include items to entertain them, such as coloring books, cards, or board games
  • If you have an infant, be sure to include diapers, formula, and anything else you’ll need
  • If you have pets, their leash and/or carrier and pet food & water
  • Spare set of keys to vehicles

While nothing can guarantee your safety during a thunderstorm or tornado, being prepared can make all the difference. Before and after severe weather it is understandable to experience panic, but being prepared and staying calm will help you respond quicker, help you make the right decisions, and possibly save lives.
