Morning People Vs. Night People | E-Neighborhood Advisor

You may know this old joke. There are three kinds of people in the world: those who can count and those who can’t.

But you can definitely separate us all into two categories: morning people and night people.

Morning people jump out of bed at the (relative) crack of dawn, wake up quickly and have their most productive hours in the first half of the day.

Night people think getting up before noon is ridiculous, gradually pick up pace as the day passes and reach their peak in the evening.

 Invariably, these two types clash with each other. Night people can’t understand how morning people can be so cheerful at such a ghastly hour. Morning people think night people are so grumpy because they stay up too late.

Usually families are composed of both types; the same is true with companies. Office managers, you might find it worthwhile to divide your team into these two groups and let them work the appropriate hours….productivity could soar!

But if you think about it, there must be a reason for the division of us humans into day people and night people. In more dangerous times, it would have made sense to have some of us alert at all hours of the day or night.

So don’t scoff at people of the opposite type: some day they may have your back!

I never thought I’d be the type of person to wake up at 5 in the morning to exercise.
I was right.

Home Improvements that Matter | E-Neighborhood Advisor

You can make your life more comfortable and improve the value of your home at the same time with some low to mid-range improvements.

A list of 35 home improvement projects in Remodeling magazine’s Cost vs. Value report all showed a sale price increase.

Here’s their top 10 improvement projects in the mid-range of cost to you:

1. Entry door replacement (steel)
2. Deck addition (wood)
3. Attic bedroom
4. Garage door replacement
5. Minor kitchen remodel
6. Window replacement (wood)
7. Window replacement (vinyl)
8. Siding replacement (vinyl)
9. Basement remodel
10. Deck addition (composite)

For homeowners with a smaller budget, here are some lower-range improvements that can still boost resale value:

1. Very minor kitchen remodel – consider replacing the hardware and facing on your cupboards rather than replacing the whole cupboards
2. Scaled down bathroom remodel – repaint cabinets instead of replacing them
3. Add a ramp and handrails, create a separate outside wheelchair access
4. Entry door replacement (composite)
5. Paint trim around door and windows

Even if you’re not selling your home, these improvements may make your life more pleasant. You’ll enjoy coming home to your upgraded home features!

Stay Cool on Hot August Days | E-Neighborhood Advisor

There are so many fun summer days this month with yummy tastes to cool down with on a hot summer day.

August 1st is Raspberry Ice Cream Day and even better is Ice Cream Sandwich Day on the 2nd.

Have you ever made ice cream sandwiches? Here are recipes to The 50 Most Delish Ice Cream Sandwiches. I may try “As-You-Like-'Em”. That's number 26 in the list of 50.

Of course, don't miss out on Watermelon Day on the 3rd.

How about a visit to the beach for Wiggle Your Toes Day and Sandcastle Day on August 6th or Play in the Sand Day on August 11th.

Cool down some more on the 14th with Creamsicle Day, yum! Then enjoy Spumoni Day - an Italian layered ice cream dessert on the 21st.

So many tasty choices to cool down during these hot summer days!

Welcome to August 2019 | Capell Flooring and Interiors

Dear friends,

Here’s hoping that your summer is going well! For many of us, the beginning of August brings a reminder that summer (or at least summer vacation) is almost over. It’s a month of scrambling to get in a couple more beach trips, barbecues, campfires, pool days, or anything else that signals summer for you. Enjoying your August to the fullest is a great way to ensure you don’t regret missing out on summer.

It’s also the motivation behind our Zero Regrets Guarantee. We know that choosing new flooring is a big project, and we don’t want you to regret missing out on an amazing new look for your home. That’s why our team will help you choose exactly the right product and style for your needs, and our expert installers will ensure that it’s perfectly placed in your home’s unique floorplan. Our goal isn’t just to sell a bit of carpet or tile; it’s to become your trusted flooring provider for life. Summer may be coming to a close, but we’re in this for the long haul – and we’re delighted to have you as a part of the Capell Flooring family.

Thanks once again for checking out this month’s edition of the Neighborhood Advisor, and we hope you have a wonderful August.

Your friend,

Matt Capell
