SUMMER SAFETY

One of the best holidays in the summertime is the 4th of July! While we celebrate our nation’s birthday, we participate in fun outdoor activities such as grilling, swimming, camping and of course, setting off fireworks! While having fun on the 4th, people need to be proactive when it comes to safety so everyone will be able to enjoy all the summer festivities while remaining safe and sound.

Here are some suggestions to keep this holiday a safe one:

Fireworks Precaution: There have been many accidents at family gatherings that occur due to people not handling fireworks properly. Avoid potentially serious injuries by following these simple but important steps:

  • Always store fireworks in a cool, dry place
  • Never allow children to handle fireworks or light them, especially sparklers
  • Follow the instructions on packaging and discard fireworks after use
  • Keep a garden hose or multiple gallons of water nearby just in case
  • Always point fireworks away from you as you light them
  • Never aim fireworks toward people, pets, vehicles, trees or houses
  • Light and discharge fireworks in an area away from buildings and flammable materials

SummerSafetySwimming Safety: Whether in a pool, in the ocean or at a lake, remember these simple tips:

  • Only swim where there’s a lifeguard present
  • Always swim in a designated swimming area
  • Stay alert and check weather conditions via weather apps before entering any body of water
  • Don’t drink alcohol or ingest medication before you swim
  • Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear a life vest
  • NEVER dive headfirst into shallow water or into water where you think it’s deep enough
  • Always supervise children while they’re swimming in the water

Safety When Grilling: Grilling is a favorite American pastime, but it can quickly turn into an unsafe situation with mishaps such as burns to people or pets and fires in yards, homes or parks. Follow these precautions to avoid injuries to family members and damage to your home:

  • NEVER leave a grill unattended when in use
  • Make sure to always grill in an open outdoor area
  • Make sure everyone – including pets – keeps a safe distance from the grill
  • Use long-handled tools especially made for use on grills to keep the chef safe
  • Be sure to check that the coals are completely cooled down before leaving the grill unattended

Keep your Independence Day celebrations fun and safe by following these tips and enjoy this special holiday with your family and friends!

Happy 4th of July from all of us here at M.C. Spa & Nail Bar!

SPA CUISINE

Summertime means enjoying light and healthy drinks made of nature’s sweet goodness. Serve this delicious, cool and refreshing Watermelon Lime Juice at your next barbecue or pool party on a hot summer day!

Yield: 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 8 cups (2 1/2 lbs.) of seedless watermelon chunks, chilled
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

Directions

  • Combine both ingredients in a blender. If the blender is too small, blend half of the watermelon first to reduce the volume and then add the other remaining ingredient.
  • Blend until thoroughly liquified.
  • Pour the blended juice through a fine metal strainer to strain out any small solid chunks that may remain.
  • Serve well-chilled, with ice. It will separate as it sits, so you’ll probably want to stir it well if you’re not serving it immediately.
  • Garnish with sprigs of mint leaves if desired.

Enjoy!
