5 Things to do in July

Give your mail carrier a special treat or glass of lemonade!
Write letters to your friends.
How about an old-fashioned family 4th of July Picnic? This meal will definitely bring back childhood memories of hot 4th of July holidays waiting for the fireworks to begin. Old fashion lemonade, sun tea, barbecue beans, potato salad, avocado salad-guacamole salad, great American hamburger, fried chicken, apple pie, strawberry short cake.
National Cherry Festival (7/6) Find a local parade and enjoy some of the rides, music, and foods.
Ice cream cone day (7/15) Summer is in full swing. Its hot and sizzling. You need something to help cool off. What a perfect time for Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day. (7/1).
Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day gives you the chance to create a new flavor of ice cream. Maybe, your new creation will be a hit, and become wildly popular.
Just how many flavors of ice cream is there? Those of you old enough to remember, will recall the "28 Flavors" of Howard Johnson's restaurant. Howard Johnson's actually had far more than 28 flavors. They always had 28 flavors in stock (hopefully) at a time. Those 28 flavors is just the tip of the iceberg. The combinations are seemingly endless.
Make today a fun day. Hold a formal or impromptu creative ice cream party. Make sure you have lots of flavors, toppers, and additives, so people at the party can get real crazy.
Cheer Up the Lonely Day is an opportunity to make a lonely person happy. Any time you can make someone happy, you've done a good thing, and should be proud of yourself. (7/11)
Lonely people have few friends and loved ones. They may have lost loved ones over the years. They may be elderly. They see people on an infrequent basis.
Spend some time today cheering up lonely people. It's easy to do.....just spend some time with them. When you visit, bring happy things to talk about. Keep the conversation upbeat, and lively. When you leave, give a big hug and let them know you enjoyed the stay. Sending cards or making a phone call is okay, only if they live too far away to visit. What a lonely person really needs, is face to face time with other people.
