How are you spending those last few weeks of summer?
August is here, which means fall will be here before you know it! Now is the time to get in those last-minute summer activities. This summer has been exceptionally warm. Now, as temperatures start to cool a bit, you can fit in those activities that may not have been as possible at 100°F.
Go on a camping trip. The daily grind can be taxing. We’re surrounded by advertising, computers, smartphones, television…So much overstimulation! That’s why it’s a great idea to just take a few days to get away from it all.
Visit a state park. This can go hand-in-hand with camping. Take some time to explore the parks in your area.
Take a few last trips to the swimming pool. Labor Day will be here before you know it. And, with it the end of the swimming season. Now is the time to get those trips to the swimming pool in before it gets too chilly!
Host a barbeque! Not only can grilling be a great way to get together with family and friends, but it can also be good for your air conditioner. The oven can really heat up a kitchen – increasing cooling demand and resulting in longer run times. Plus, having people over can heat things up as well. Taking the party outside is a great way to minimize utility costs associated with hosting a get together.
Check and see if you live near a drive-in theater. If you do, many close in the early fall. Now is the time to experience some nostalgia while seeing the latest summer blockbuster.
Take some time out of your busy day and go on a picnic.
These are just a few suggestions. If it is still too hot to get out and explore the outdoors, staying in and enjoying the AC isn’t too bad either.
