Enjoying Summer 2020 from the Comfort of Home
The year 2020 has already proven to be one for the history books. Now that summer is in full swing, we are all trying to adjust to staying home more than we’d like. Rather than concentrating on what we’ve lost this year, a little creativity and self-discovery can go a long way to help enjoy this summer from the comfort of your home. If you’re looking for some fun summer activities for the family, here are several things you can do to enjoy the summer days from a social distance:
- Backyard Campfire: If it’s permitted in your neighborhood, a small campfire in a contained firepit can be an entertaining activity for both kids and adults. Roasting hot dogs on a stick over an open flame before toasting marshmallows for chocolate smores can make for great family fun and memories.
- Yard Games: Summertime is a perfect season to play outdoors, and games are a great way to pass the time. The classic hide-and-go-seek can be lots of fun for young kids. Also, a game of tag in all its varieties, can create lots of laughs and giggles. If you’re looking for something less physically active, while you catch your breath, search online for some more casual outdoor games to play.
- Kitchen Creativity: Food preparation can be an activity of its own. Cook a meal that require new things. Take on a fun baking project, or learn how to cook a new recipe or set up a picnic in your yard. Sweet tasting desserts and comfort foods can be great, but be sure to find new ways to incorporate healthy nourishing foods as well!
- Get Outside: When staying home is just not an option, head for the great outdoors. An evening walk on a nearby nature path that is opened or a day at the lake where you can maintain distance are both great choices.
Although staying home this summer isn’t what any of us had planned, it doesn’t have to be a total loss. You can also pass the time doing things you enjoy with the people you love. With your family staying home more often, your electric bills may have risen. If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your home with solar power, now might be a great time to make that happen.
You can get a 0 down, 12 year solar loan with monthly payments typically less than you are paying now for electricity. There is no pre-payment penalty and you won’t have to worry about the rate increases from the Utility Company. The solar panels and inverters are warrantied by the manufacturer for 25 years, so from year 12 to at least year 25, you have free electricity.
