5 Productive Things You Should Tackle Before Spring Officially Arrives in Tenleytown

Posted on by


Freezing rain, winter storm advisories, slippery sidewalks–we don’t know about you, but we’re ready for spring to arrive!

You don’t have to wait for March 20 to celebrate the best parts of spring, from fragrant flowers to refreshed apartment decor. Get a head start on Mother Nature, celebrate spring early in Tenleytown, and learn a new skill along the way. It’s almost like New Year’s–minus the impossible resolutions.

1. Paint Your Thumb Green

OK, we don’t mean literally paint your thumb—but you get the point. Is there anything better than fresh flowers? According to a Harvard study, flowers can boost your mood and even make self-proclaimed non-morning people feel better. Is there anything they can’t do?

Unfortunately, flowers can’t make your coffee or finish your work report before work on Tuesday (yet). But we definitely think it’s worth it to go pick up a fresh bouquet—or better yet, a live pot full—of flowers from Johnson’s Flower & Garden Center in Tenleytown. Put them on your windowsill and you might just feel a spring breeze and a hint of sunshine on a frigid day.

2. Work on Your Handyman (or Handywoman) Skills

If you’ve never considered yourself the “handy” type, now is a great time to start honing in on those skills. Once you’ve finished your spring clean, it’s a great time to start working on some new apartment decor projects. Fix that squeaky door hinge, finally install those curtains, or repaint the living room. The projects don’t have to be big, but they can have a huge impact on the ambiance of your home.

3. Upgrade Your Electronics

Laptop on its last gig? Tired of tiny TV speakers? Want to try out a Samsung Watch or Fitbit? Head to Best Buy in Tenleytown, where you can upgrade your sound system and other electronics in one visit. There’s always deals going on, and if you find something you want online, you can order it for free store pickup. It may not be Black Friday, but we think that’s a pro (no crowds)!

4. Start a New Cooking Habit

Yes, of course you love the deli section of Whole Foods. No, it doesn’t count as homemade, no matter how long you sit in line. Now’s the time to expand your culinary repertoire and learn to make at least three solid meals by the end of the month. The next time you’re invited to a summer barbeque, you’ll have more to bring than just drinks.

Not big on cooking? Try bartending or baking. Both will keep you busy when it’s cold out, and you’ll have skills that will pay dividends when you have company (or new neighbors).

5. Take a Tour of a Luxury Tenleytown Apartment

Honestly, there is no better time to start apartment hunting than before the spring rush! Take a tour of Tenley View apartments, and picture your future in a great DC neighborhood. Yes, we’re a bit biased. But does that mean these apartments aren’t the best thing since sliced homemade bread from your own kitchen? Well, yes—if that kitchen happens to have state-of-the-art appliances.
