Make Fresh Lemonade or Smoothies
Fruit and summer go together perfectly. Their refreshing flavors are just what you need on a hot, sunny day. Even better is a nice cold glass of lemonade. This summer at Flats on D, pick up some lemons and squeeze your own fresh lemonade. Follow this recipe from Tastes Better from Scratch to bring a taste of summer into your home. Or, grab some fruits and throw them in your blender for a fresh smoothie. Mango and pineapple or strawberry and bananas are great combinations. Or, spice it up and make a mango piña colada to sip on as you enjoy the warm breeze through your window.
Color or Paint
Coloring and painting isn’t just for kids. There’s plenty of adult coloring books and paint by numbers that take time and creativity, but make truly beautiful designs. Or, freestyle. Grab some acrylic paint and canvases from your local art store and see where the paintbrush takes you. Remember, art is interpretive, so there’s no such thing as a bad creation. Spend some time this summer bringing out your inner artist. It’s therapeutic, fun and a great way to pass the time!
Start an Indoor Garden
If you cook (or want to cook more), then an herb or vegetable garden would make a great addition to your home. Having your own garden helps cut down your carbon footprint, and since they’re organic, you’ll know that your food is free of pesticides and other chemicals. It feels good to know you grew your own food. It’s time to start your indoor garden this summer at Flats on D. Pick up a few starter kits and commit to getting your green thumb. Need help?
