Things to Do this Fall In and Around Philadelphia

Pumpkin Patch It’s a beautiful time of the year here in Pennsylvania. The air is cooler, the leaves are changing colors, the scenery can be spectacular.

Try out local Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, PA. They have great hay rides which take you out to the pumpkin patch where you can pick your pumpkins, corn mazes where you really do get lost, and THE MOST AMAZING kettle corn on the east coast! There is nothing like a hot bag of this popcorn right out of the kettle! There are moon bounces for the kids along with pig races and pony rides and even a ride in a Monster Herse! But … BEWARE! At night, the freaks really do come out! The evening hayride is much more creepy …. so is the haunted house…. eeeeek!

Another local favorite, Styer Orchard great for picking your own apples and stop by the store for the best apple pie in town!

For those daring souls who want a little more fright in their Halloween season, check out Terror Behind the Walls in Philadelphia, PA 19130 – Eastern State Penitentiary, a real haunted prison with the most maddening, nasty ghosts in Philadelphia!

Enjoy the Fall Season in PA! And don’t forget to watch my favorite, It’s A Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

Boo!

Its a great pumpkin charlie brown

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Pumpkin PatchNo, I am not writing about Christmas. So Bah-Humbug! Fall! I am writing about the many things I love to do in the fall! It’s a beautiful time of the year here in Pennsylvania. The air is cooler, the leaves are changing colors, the scenery can be spectacular.

Almost every year around the end of October it has been a tradition in my family to take a drive up the Poconos. We spend the weekend going on hay rides and visiting the local Pumpkin Patches. One place I absolutely love is the Country Junction where every year they have an amazing Pumpkin Festival.

During the day, it is more for kids. They have amusements, crafts, hot apple cider, a petting zoo, pony rides, corn mazes, non-scary hay rides and so much more.  Sadly, The Country Junction stores burned down a few years ago but they have since been rebuilt, completion was done this year! We are happy to have our stores back! Lots of neat gifts and a great time to start your Christmas shopping … er …uh … bah-humbug!

Halloween timeAt night, the hay ride becomes much scarier! You are left off in the middle of a corn field only to have to walk through dark woods where the trees come alive. If you make it out alive, you then must walk through a dark cave, yes, a real underground cave only to end up in a 3D haunted house. Creepy crawlers lurk all around you! It’s a blast!

Another “just as fun” place to visit is Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, PA. They also have great hay rides which take you out to the pumpkin patch where you can pick your pumpkins, corn mazes where you really do get lost, and THE MOST AMAZING kettle corn on the east coast! There is nothing like a hot bag of this popcorn right out of the kettle! And on our way home, we can’t forget a stop at Styer Orchard for the best apple pie in town!

For those daring souls who want a little more fright in their Halloween season, check out Terror Behind the Walls in Philadelphia, PA 19130 – Eastern State Penitentiary, a real haunted prison with the most maddening, nasty ghosts in Philadelphia!

Yep .. Christmas can wait … I am not ready for that yet! I’m too busy enjoying the Fall Season in PA!

Boo!

Fall Home Maintenance Tips

Fall Maintenance Tips

Check the Heat! Have an HVAC contractor come out to inspect your heating system. Have your system cleaned so that it remains efficient. Don’t forget to change filters if you have them as suggested, once per month.

Invest in a programmable thermostat. You could save well over $100.00 annually just by keeping your temperature (in the winter) no higher than 70 degrees while awake and changing it to 62 degrees while you sleep.

Think about checking your roof before the cold weather comes and don’t forget to clean the fall leaves and debris from gutters and drains.

Caulk your doors and windows. Check window glazing putty (this seals the glass into the window frame).  Add weather stripping as needed around doors, garages, etc.

Divert water away from your home.  Add extensions to downspouts so water runs at least 3 to 4 feet away from the foundation. Drain and then turn off exterior faucets and/or turn off the shut-off valve inside your home.

Using a lawn irrigation system? Consider having it professionally drained to help avoid freezing and leaky pipes come spring.

Lastly, and most importantly …
Don’t forget to check the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
