June Activity Calendar

By now, the kids are out of school for the summer are surely complaining that they are "Booooooored"!

Here are a few things to add to your June calendar:

Plan at least two outdoor activities this month: Find a drive in theatre or an outdoor concert and see a show. If you are more adventurous, find a new park or trailhead and pack a picnic.

Each week add a different fruit and vegetable to your grocery list, and try eating them different ways. Or, locate several new farmers markets and shop there instead of the grocery store.

Learn the difference between black, white, green, herbal, mate, oolong, rooibos, and blooming teas, and try a batch or two of a new type of iced tea.

Do an internet search for “botanical rose garden (your city)” and visit your local rose garden. If roses are not available, simply visit your local botanical garden and see what’s in bloom!

Who doesn’t love the zoo and aquarium? Plan a day to see either, or both! If possible, plan a road trip to visit a different one in a nearby town. If cost is a factor, plan with friends or family and split the cost of travel.

Beat the Heat and Simplify Your Life

The summer months are upon us, and here in Colorado the heat came with a vengence.  We literally went from 80 degrees to 100, and boy is it HOT. 

The summer heat makes the kitchen the last place anyone wants to be. 

Here is a great summer idea:  TAKE A KITCHEN BREAK

Most people give themselves limited options when they don’t feel like cooking—namely, calling in for pizza or pulling out the Chinese takeout menu. Instead, why not ask a few neighbors and friends if they want to go in on a meal exchange program: Each person takes turns cooking and delivering a simple dinner in one shot.

Not only can you come home from work to a great meal that is ready to eat (and who doesn't love that?), you also have more time to do the things you want to do.  Not to mention, cooking in volume is more economical. 

A few things to consider with your meal exchange group:
1)  Each person should decide what they will be preparing in advance and either collect appropriate serving dishes from each other, or agree to use disposables. 
2)  Set a maximum budget each person can or should spend.
3)  Communicate meals with each other to avoid duplication.
4)  Establish a delivery schedule and method.
