Summer Ideas

I found this idea in the latest
"Better Homes and Gardens"
Magazine.
It is called a "Sand Pail List"
These are the things you'd
like to do this summer.
They broke their list down
in categories but I think I'll
just list my ideas.
1--Go to a concert or play.
If you can find one's that
are free or low cost--all
the better.
2--Do you have a public
garden in your area? If
so, take a day to wander
through it.
3--Check out your local
museums for free or low
exhibits/programs.
4--Learn something--
the library is full of
ideas or look it up on
the internet. While at
the library find some
books you'd like to read
too. Sign the kids up for
their Summer Reading
program.
5--Play in the backyard--
THE WHOLE FAMILY!
There is Bocce ball, Bad-
minton, Frisbee, Croquet,
Pitch and catch etc. etc.
6--Have a water day--
sprinklers, water guns,
slip n' slide or baby pools.
Don't forget the bubbles
too!
7--Ride your bikes together
or go for walks in the neigh-
borhood.
8--Grow something and
then make something from
it.
9--Watch a sunrise or sunset.
10--DO NOTHING--Take a day
and relax!
Whatever you do this summer
HAVE FUN!!!!
************************
Reader Warning---
If you buy Banana Boat Sunscreen
Products--BEWARE of the one's
that are Aerosol based.
A man in Massachusetts--Brian
Sigworth sprayed some on and
then went to turn something over
on his grill and HE caught on fire!
The can says not to USE by open
flames but nothing about using it
and then turning food over on
your grill! Major burns on this
guy! He is recovering pretty
well. Banana Boat is looking
into this issue---JUST A HEADS
UP for everyone! Who would
of thought this??
~Keep on Dreaming~

  1. Holy cow! Thanks for the heads up...wonder if this is true for all aerosol sprays??? I know that Chris has pounded it into my head to NEVER spray PAM Cooking Spray on my pan while the gas burners are lit. I usually forget to spray the pan before I light the burners so I take the pan over to the sink to spray...but now I wonder about residual/overspray?!!!

    Anyway, love the list. Just got back from a long-weekend in STL to celebrate my 25th High School reunion. Tons.of.fun.!!!

    Let's get together soon!!!!
