My sister is visiting for two and a half weeks, so I wanted to make her feel at home. What better way to feel at home than to do some housework and outdoor chores. She asked if she could help with anything. Who am I to deny her request?

I’m having a new house anniversary celebration in a couple of days, so I wanted to clean the patio and outdoor furniture. I hosed down the concrete floor and metal furniture, then handed her the patio furniture sealer. She polished all the furniture and straightened up the patio while I went for a walk. (She offered.) I’m not afraid to ask for help anymore.

The backyard looks great, doesn’t it?

My tip for the day…If someone offers to help you, take them up on it. That’ll teach ’em.
