* Perform some gardening, slowly, not in a hurry. Plant a tree or some flowers.
* Play a game of cards, be it Bridge, Pinocle, Poker, Uno, or whatever.
* Attend a meeting, such as a community town hall get-together and be brought up to date.
* Take a walk or ride a bicycle. Walk the dog, if you have one, and enjoy the scenery.
* Visit the library.
* Enjoy a swim or soak in a hot tub.
* Update your coin or stamp collection.
* Knit or sew if you are so inclined.
* Play catch with your kids or grandchildren.
* Take in a baseball game, be it MLB, the Minors, or Little League. Other sports will also suffice. While there, don't get over rambunctious, just enjoy the moment. If your team wins, great; if they do not, it's not the end of the world.
* Go fishing. Nothing better on a shady, lazy afternoon.
* Take a nap, if the kids will let you.
* Lend a hand to someone in need.
* Work a crossword possible and work your brain.
* Clean the garage. Maybe it's time to clean house and dispose of the old Beta-Max machine you have.
* Play some music. I happen to prefer classical and jazz myself.
* Volunteer your time to some worthy cause.
* Visit a horse track and take in the races.
* Go camping or boating.
* Attend a local festival or car show (if you don't mind crowds).
* Watch a movie. Sometimes an old classic is just the recipe for causing you to fall asleep.
* Visit a public park or beach. Visit the mountains if you are near to some.
* Visit a museum and expand your mind.
* Tell a joke and laugh.
* Take your kids or grandchildren to the zoo.
* Play a round of golf, tennis, pool or whatever.
* Take the family to lunch or dinner.
