This is a short note for those folks and their kids with a rather sunny disposition. They are the ones who would usually smile the broadest and if the occasion arises, laugh the loudest. They always have a good word or two about those around them and about the day at hand. But if that day turns out to be dark, gray, gloomy and wet, you may just find that these folks drop their lips the lowest, so low that it reaches the ground.
Why is this? When the sun takes a break and the weather turns sour, it is these folks and their kids with the sunniest disposition that miss being out and about in the sun the most. Even if they’re feeling a trifle lazy, they’ll want to be hanging about or lazing about somewhere, perhaps under an umbrella on their patio or under a cool, green tree on their comfy hammock. Perhaps they were moping so long they forgot about their ability to innovate and improvise.
In saying that, they could, if they really try hard enough, do some of the things that would normally give them delight out of doors. Take the hammock, for instance. A really active guy could install an indoor hammock swing on behalf of the whole family. After dad has finished lazing about on his comfy indoor hammock, with stereo oozing out cool sounds in the background, it’s time for the kids to have a rollicking go.
Playing on an indoor swing should be safe as houses provided that enough spare room space has been cleared. Also, some swings will be appropriately harnessed to prevent really small kids from falling off or bumping into things.
