  1.     A hammock

Fed up of going to malls and movie theaters every weekend? Need a relaxing Sunday? We have the perfect trick up the sleeve. Add a swing chair or hammock to your lush green backyard lawn.

  •         First you need to buy the hammock. Its easily available in stores and popular on line shopping sites
  •         Measure the hammock’s length and construct 2 poles to tie both ends. Of course, if you have 2 adjacent trees then you don’t need poles
  •         Do add some tiny lights around the trees/poles
  •         For an extra bit, place a tiny handmade/old table near the hammock. It is really helpful when sipping in some juice and you wish to keep the glass. In fact, while reading a book if you wish to doze off in the hammock, the table aids in keeping the phone, book, spectacles etc.

Caution: The hammock may become a favorite in the family! Fights on who gets the hammock are to be settled with a coin toss!
