On vacation at home – relaxation, not boredom
There is no place like home, be it that you live in a tiny apartment or a three-level house with backyard and porch. It’s yours, regardless of its status, private property or rental, you live in it and that’s’ what makes it your home. Summer spoils humanity with tempting vacation offers, but so can your day-to-day-place, if you want. Here are some tips, share your ideas.
Hang a hammock – on your balcony, patio, or even above your bed. The one above the bed worked like a charm for me, especially on torrid days and rainy nights. Read, sip teas or cocktails, watch movies until you fall asleep – simply put, relax.
Invest in a table on wheels – mobility for your tea, cocktails, wines, munchies, you name it. Anything you know will chase boredom away.

Cook outside – barbeque by the pool with your friends helping out, lounge chairs all over and no kitchen heat to cut your hunger. Fun cooking.
Dine outdoors – after cooking comes the even more delightful part, eating. Keep it outdoor, whether a meal for two or for a larger crowd. Find the right patio and the matching deck dining set and enrich your diner with a getaway flavor.

Plant flowers – “The Earth laughs in flowers” (R.W. Emerson) so make your home laugh all summer long, bring color to your surroundings; indoors or outside, wherever you look colors influence your state of mind.
Install a ceiling fan – to give your living room that lazy, tropical-resort feel. With its cool and constant breeze it can transport you in a mid-summer night’s dream, keeping your energy costs down, too.

When enjoying the last days of summer remember the words of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, “He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.”
