It’s been raining for days and rain is in the forecast for six of the next ten days. Is the gloomy weather starting to get you down? Here are eight ideas to brighten up your day.
1. Meet a friend for coffee.
Aromas Coffee Shop is my favorite place for a caramel macchiato.
2. Take a bubble bath.
There’s nothing better than a bubble bath in a Jacuzzi in your room at the Lodge.
Here’s a recipe for a wonderful bath with long lasting fluffy bubbles that will help you retain moisture in your skin : Mix ½ cup mild body soap, 1 tablespoon of honey, and one egg white. Pour the mixture under the water as you draw your bath.
3. Play a new game.
There’s a new Yahtzee game at Rolling Hills.
4. Try a new recipe.
You’ll find a great recipe for our Artichoke Encrusted Halibut on our blog, “Recipes made easy at the Corning, Wine, Food, and Art Festival.” It’s a favorite at Timber’s Steakhouse.
We’ve also posted some recipes on YouTube. Here’s one on how to cook a salmon filet in minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAjDHvgaVnI.
5. Play a round of golf at Sevillano Links.
It’s no drearier right now than it is on a summer day in Scottland where the game was invented. Start your game after noon for the best rates and warmest temperatures.
6. Go out for breakfast or lunch at Timber’s or the Rolling Hills Buffet.
If you are 50 or over, enjoy a 50% discount on your Buffet meal on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
7. Get a new look.
There’s a hair stylist at the Traveler’s Center at Rolling Hills.
8. Have a party.
Invite your friends and make a day — or night — of it. Rolling Hills has everything you need for a fun time including fun and games, and food and drinks. Plan your party for Saturday night, and treat your guests to free live music and dancing in Carlinos. Best part is you don’t have to clean your house before the party starts.
