- Camped out two nights when the weather was unbearably hot. We stayed nice in cool in the tent, kept the fans off, and enjoyed waking up with the sounds of the birds (okay, and the neighbor taking out the trash).
- Turned leftover rice and chickpea curry into a cold curry rice salad which everyone enjoyed (even more than when it is hot in one case).
- Ate leftover pancakes for breakfast and used them instead of bread for sandwiches.
- Used drying racks instead of the dryer.
- Enjoyed time on the water in my human powered boat.
