Making a summer want-to-do list is a great way to be sure you make time for everything you want to do before the season slips by. You can probably think of plenty of items to add to your list that involve outings, like spending the day at the beach, visting your favorite vinyard, jumping in a lake or taking weekly visits to the Farmer's Market — but what about fun things you can do without leaving home? Consider adding these 12 ideas to your list.

1. Photograph your house. Years from now, whether you still live in your home or have moved on to another place, it can be rewarding to have a few mementos of your home life as it is today. Take a few shots of the exterior from across the street and each room inside, plus any special details, like your children's height marks on a door frame or the view from your favorite window. Taking photos in the summer will give the best perspective of your home and can come in useful if you end up trying to sell your home in the winter or spring when things are not so lush.

3. String up a hammock. Just looking at a hammock swaying gently in the breeze is relaxing — actually lounging in one is even better! If you don't have trees or a pergola to hang yours from, look for a hammock that comes with its own freestanding frame. A hammock in the shade is a great way to beat the Okanagan heat!
