 WALL HANGING WITH PAPER SNOWFLAKES

If you have kids in the home, they’ll have a blast making this snowflake wall hanging with you. If you don’t have a Cricut machine, you can go the traditional route with making snowflakes (by folding paper and cutting designs). To avoid putting nails in the walls, we suggest you use Command hooks instead.

There is also a no-sew option that uses hot glue to secure the snowflakes to the fishing wire. This is a super cute wall hanging that brings the winter indoors, but without the cold temperatures.

What makes soup healthy?


Soup is one of the healthiest meals you can make! Here’s why it is so good for you:

Veggie Loaded: Soups are a great way to bulk up your veggie intake

Hydrating: Broth is a great way to up your liquid intake

High Protein: Most of the recipes listed below are high protein which is helpful for a healthy diet

Filling! Soup is a great way to fill up on veggies and protein

lemon chicken soup ingredients

You’ll need a few pantry/fridge staples to make Lemon Chicken Soup. You probably already have them on hand!

You can make this soup in the instant pot or crockpot. Here is how to make it in the instant pot, although making it on the stove or in the crockpot is very similar!

  1. Sauté onions/celery, garlic until translucent
  2. Add in carrots/spices/lemon juice
  3. Lay chicken on top of veggie mixture. Add chicken broth.
  4. Cover the instant pot and cook per the directions below.
  5. While the soup cooks, cook your pasta (optional).  We recommend cooking the pasta and rice separately once the soup is completely cooked. (Don’t try to add raw pasta or rice into the soup when it’s cooking.. it will turn to mush!) Gluten free pasta will work just fine. Quinoa, rice, orzo or couscous will also be delicious! We recommend adding to your soup bowl, pour the soup over it, and stir. This will help you avoid soggy noodles and rice.
  6. Remove & discard bay leaves. Remove chicken, shred the chicken, and add back to the soup.

Can I make this easy chicken soup in the crockpot instead?

Yes! Instead of sautéing your veggies in the instant pot in step one of the recipe, sauté your celery, onion + garlic on the stove in a pan. Add sautéd veggies to the crockpot. Stir in carrots, lemon juice + spices.

Place whole chicken breasts on top of vegetables in crockpot. Cover with chicken broth. Place the lid on the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours. You can also make it on the stove! This is all outlined in the recipe below.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING WORK ORDERS,


WEATHER, HEALTH and SAFETY PROTOCOLS!


The Maintenance Department will begin consolidating work orders to minimize the

amount of trips to your homes and exposure of Covid, Flu and other viruses. 

Please ONLY SUBMIT ONE WORK ORDER every TWO MONTHS for non-

emergency/non-essential repairs. This one work order can have multiple items listed. If

multiple work orders are submitted multiple times within 2 months for non-

emergency/non-essential repairs, maintenance will cancel the request.

If you are having any sickness and/or virus symptoms, please inform our Maintenance

Department when they coordinate your work order appointments. Please submit your

repairs that are non-emergencies/non-essentials through your portal. If you have an

emergency, please submit a work order through the portal and call the emergency

maintenance number (713) 352-3768. Messages left will be checked after hours and on

weekends. 

Maintenance emergencies are:


  • ·         Major Water Leak (shut off water immediately)

  • ·         Heat is out and it is below 55 degrees

  • ·         AC is out and it is above 85 degrees

  • ·         Toilets: None are working (not just one)

  • ·         Sewage backup throughout (not just a clogged drain)

  • ·         Broken windows and doors (not lockouts)

  • ·         Electrical: Outages (not caused by the power company or

  • weather related) that affect major parts of the home


Due to the upcoming freezing weather, please call the emergency

maintenance number (713) 352-3768 if you notice any signs of pipe

breaks and/or water damage. Please adhere to the following:



FREEZE WARNING! 


When temperatures are forecasted to be below 32 degrees F,

water pipes can freeze, burst, and cause a great deal of

damage.  Help protect your rental home and belongings by


taking these steps during a freeze:


TURN OFF YOUR SPRINKLER SYSTEMS


LEAVE HEAT ON AT LEAST 65 DEGREES


OPEN CABINET DOORS UNDER KITCHEN AND BATHROOM SINKS SO WARM AIR


CAN CIRCULATE BELOW THE SINKS 


LET BOTH HOT AND COLD FAUCETS HAVE A SLOW DRIP OR SMALL TRICKLE


TO PREVENT PIPES FROM FREEZING


COVER AND INSULATE OUTDOOR FAUCETS AND REMOVE ANY GARDEN


HOSES


CHECK THE EXTERIOR OF THE HOME FOR YOUR BACKFLOW. NOT ALL HOMES

WILL HAVE ONE. SEE ATTACHED VIDEO FOR STEPS ON WINTERIZING IT. Link to


video:https://youtu.be/7EDlwoMhHig


IF YOU HAVE A POOL, PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING TIPS:

Run the filtration pump and all auxiliary pumps continuously (the pool cleaner

pump does not need to run).

Maintain proper pool water level at all times (at the middle of the tile line). If

the water level drops too low, the pump will draw in air through the skimmers

which increases the risk of equipment freeze damage.

NEVER backwash during extremely cold conditions. Filter pressure gauges

can freeze, resulting in inaccurate readings. DO NOT use heater during

extreme cold unless it has been constantly running prior to the drop in

temperature. Manufacturers state heaters should not be run at temperatures

68 and below.

Adjust pool and spa jets upwards to reduce surface freezing.


We also recommend storing additional

water if in the event you temporarily lose

your water supply.

Be alert!  If you see something unusual – for example if your water

does not come on, or if you see water leaking anywhere in or around

your home, notify us immediately 


(713) 352-3768


Thank you from your 3G Properties Team







PLEASE REMEMBER TO KEEP YOUR RENTER’S INSURANCE POLICY CURRENT AND UP TO DATE!  All tenants and occupants 18 years and older must have renters insurance.

Please send us a copy of your renewed policy so we can add to your portal:

admin@3gpropertiesgroup.com





Maintenance requests MUST be in writing so please use your tenant portal.  Photos can also be uploaded to support your maintenance requests.  Report any leaks so minor problems don’t turn into major ones.


We have a new process for submitting emergency work orders.


For emergencies only, please call (713) 352-3768. Messages left will be checked after hours and on weekends. Please submit a work order as well. Please make note of this change. 

Maintenance emergencies are:

  • Major Water Leak (shut off water immediately)

  • Heat is out and it is below 55 degrees

  • AC is out and it is above 85 degrees

  • Toilets: None are working (not just one)

  • Sewage backup throughout (not just a clogged drain)

  • Broken windows and doors (not lockouts)

  • Electrical: Outages (not caused by the power company or weather related) that affect major parts of the home

  • The HVAC systems can only perform within a 20 degree differential.  If it's 100+ and you want your house to cool to 70 then you might want to invest in a portable a/c unit that you can move from room to room to create an even cooler environment.

We service each of our rental properties quarterly or semi-annually for filter changes, smoke alarm testing and property walk throughs. This is a requirement of your Landlord and to ensure the safety and condition of your home.  If you refuse service, do not allow access to your rental property, do not leave your keyless deadbolt unlocked or do not safely secure your pet in its crate, a $65 trip charge will be added to your rental account.


If you are ever locked out of your rental property, it is your responsibility to contact and pay for locksmith services. This is not a maintenance request (see above).


Do NOT pour oil or grease down any drains including garbage disposals to prevent clogs and repairs being charged back to tenants due to misuse. 


“Flushable” Wipes — and Almost Everything Else — Are Not Flushable. Here is a simple truth. Sewer systems were designed to handle two things — human waste and toilet paper.  Flushing wipes increases the chances that the pipes will get blocked and cause serious problems for the sewer system in general.  Repairs caused by misuse will be charged back to tenants.


Per your Lease Agreement, all tenants and occupants 18 years and older need their own separate Renter’s Insurance Policy or on a combined policy naming all tenants and occupants as insureds.  3G Properties Group should be named on your policy as an “additional interest” so your insurance company will automatically send us your proof of insurance and any changes or updates. If all tenants are not named on the insurance policy or we do not have a copy of your policy on file, there is a mandatory $12.50 landlord’s liability insurance policy charged to your rental property each month to be included in your rent payment. Tenant’s personal property is not protected unless Tenant has their own RENTERS INSURANCE.


DUE TO LIABILITY, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD ANY TENANT OR OCCUPANT ACCESS THE ATTIC OF THE PROPERTY FOR STORAGE OR ANY OTHER PURPOSE.  You are not allowed to change your AC filters if they are located in the attic space or above 6 feet from the ground.


No temporary or above ground pools of any kind or trampolines are permitted on the property per your Lease Agreement, paragraph 12D.


Tenant must kennel or crate pets whenever landlord or landlord’s representative will be on property for a scheduled appointment. If not, there will be a $65 trip charge added to your rental account.


If you have an addition to your family, i.e. new baby, please let us know so we can add them as occupants. We will need their name and date of birth.  Any occupants 18 or older are required to complete a rental application for approval prior to them moving in.


Please make all payments through your portal. We do not accept personal checks.


Written communication is best!  When you have questions or concerns related to your lease, policies or procedures, please email to office@3gpropertiesgroup.com. 3G personnel will respond within 48 business hours. Thank you!
