Summer is a time to relax. My advice is to get back to nature even if it is in your own backyard. Buy a hammock, make some lemonade, and turn off all your electronics. Once you are unplugged, go outside and listen to the sounds (lawn mowing, birds, neighbors), smell the scents of summer (BBQ’s, flowers, fresh-cut grass), and feel the heat.
Life is short (it gets shorted as you get older) enjoy the simple pleasures of summer.
Here are some hammocks we like and lemonade recipes too, get started enjoying summer.
Perfect Lemonade Recipe
- Prep time: 10 minutes
- 1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
- 1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
Yield: Serves 6.
