High Gas Prices Got You Down? Fun things to do Close to Home this Summer!
Summer Fun - Beat the High Cost of Gas and Stay Close to Home I love Springtime; it’s my favorite time of the year. It’s fun just to sit on the porch and drink a glass of fresh lemonade and listen to the birds sing. Nature seems to bounce into new life as it beacons us all to a new beginning. But soon it is over and then comes Summer. Yea for summer! School is out and there are lots of things to do. What may be fun for some might not be fun for others.
But let me give you some ideas on those long summer days when the sun is scorching and a glass of lemonade is just not going to be enough to do the trick. Although my favorite part of nature is the ocean, and I often hear it calling me in a soft voice, calling “C-i-n-d-yeeeee, C-i-n-d-y----eeeeeeee, I know that because of the high price of gas, many people will be looking for alternatives closer to home if they don’t live close to the ocean. I have to go to Daytona Beach, Florida, however. at least once or maybe even Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Anyway, since I live on the outskirts of Chattanooga, Tennessee here are some of the things I suggest: 1.
Take a walk along the Riverwalk or along the levee. 2. Take a trip to the aquarium. 3. Go to a great restaurant and we have quite a few (whether it be great southern B-B-Q or fried catfish and hushpuppies or a buffet with everything at Golden Corral). Think about that last option several times if you plan on looking good in a bathing suit, however. Ask me--I know. 4. If you drive to our part of the country, bring your bikes as it’s a lot of fun to go to Chickamauga Battlefield and ride, especially if you have a family and picnic areas are available. 5.
Go to the movie matinee and then a trip to the mall--whether it be to buy something new to add to your wardrobe or just window shopping. 6. Join a health club with a steam room, sauna and outdoor swimming pool -- I just did and I’m really looking forward to getting myself in shape. I’m turning in to my mother more and more each day; since she take over 8 types of medication, I had no alternative. 7. Go looking at new houses or open houses and just dream again. Even if you plan on staying in the one you presently live in, it will either make you glad you live there or even give you new decorating ideas. 8. Go to the flea market. 9.
Learn a new skill--whether it be marketing on the internet or playing the guitar. 10. Visit a new church or go to church activities outside of what you are normally accustomed to, even if it is outside your realm of normality--experience the other side of life. 11. Volunteer--whether it be at a hospital or non-profit agency or maybe go on a mission trip with your church or other organization and utilize your skills or just be of service. 12. Have a block party and invite all your neighbors. 13. Have your toes done--with the little painted on designs. 14.
If you have an elderly parent who lives alone, visit and stay for the day. 15. Work on a family tree and trace your roots; interview other family members and trace back as far as you can. 16. Buy your dogs a new collar and take them for a walk after getting them groomed with a new summer hairdo. When your pets feel good, it makes you feel good. 17. Go to an outdoor sporting event like drag racing or baseball. 18.
