Keep Yourself Occupied While Staying Safe in a New Home at Yavapai Hills

by Erin

Tennis Court Yavapai Hills Prescott Arizona

Outside of the excitement of purchasing your first new home, being confined inside during a global pandemic may not provide much to cheer about. While residing in the new home community of Yavapai Hills in Prescott, AZ, there is always something to do indoors and outdoors to ensure that you enjoy yourself while safely social distancing. Here is a quick list of fun things you may want to try to help pass the time away as you continue to stay safe during the pandemic:

 

Have a Family Movie Night

 

Now that everyone is in the house together, you can create intentional moments to spend much-needed quality time together. Draw names from a jar to see who gets to pick the movie first. Pop some popcorn and get ready to laugh or cry together as a family over your favorite films. To make the night even sweeter, you can invite your extended family to watch on Zoom to share the moment.

 

Adult Coloring Books 

 

Coloring is not just for kids anymore. Grab some adult coloring books and a box of colored pencils and go to town, allowing your imagination to run wild. You’ll find that you can easily find joy in the small things, even if it’s only for a few minutes.

 

Making Lists

 

Make a list of all of the things you are grateful for, the things that bring you joy, your most memorable moments of the year, or a shortlist of attainable goals you would like to accomplish this year. This is great to look back on in the future to review.

 

Learn a new skill

 

You can pick up a new instrument like the piano or guitar, try your hand at baking for the first time, or turn that brown thumb into a green one with a new house plant. Whatever it is, try it out. You can always find classes online that take you to step by step to learn the new skill you’ve always wanted to try.

 

Camp at home

 

Bring the camping experience to you by pitching a tent right in your backyard. You can tell scary stories when night falls and barbeque hot dogs and make smores on your BBQ pit. If you want to get fancy, you can even set up a projector to watch movies.

  

The fun doesn’t stop at home when living at Yavapai Hills. This community offers plenty of onsite amenities that allow you to stretch your legs and burn a few calories, including a tennis court, swimming pool, walking trails, and a community clubhouse. A few minutes from your new neighborhood is the Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary, a non-profit animal sanctuary with interactive experiences that are great for young children to get acquainted with animal life. Enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, and boating at nearby recreational hot spots like the Prescott National Forest, Goldwater Lake, and Watson Lake. Take care of your weekend shopping at the Prescott Gateway Mall, where you can find retailers such as Dillard’s, JC Penney, and Bed Bath and Beyond. Many stores now offer options for curbside pickup. After a long day of shopping, you’ll want to fill your belly with great food that you can pick up or have delivered to your door from restaurants like Prescott Junction for warm family-sized breakfasts and classic comfort food, Raven Café for vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options, or LaBruzza’s Italian Ristorante for delicious Italian comfort food.

 

Starting from the high $400,000’s, floor plans featured at Yavapai Hills include three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and span between 2,325 to 2,746 square feet of living space.

Desert Landscaping Ideas:

 

Garden Beds:

 

Create a garden bed filled with an array of desert plants that thrive in the dry heat, but are astonishing to view. Rock gardens also provide the perfect aesthetic for any desert landscape design. This option is perfect for the homeowner that isn’t interested in filling their entire landscape with vegetation but desires a beautiful focal point.

 

Add elements of water:

 

Just because you reside in the desert does not mean your landscape design has to be dry. Try adding a few elements of water in the form of small ponds, a trickling waterfall, or waterscape to balance the elements in your yard and offer a tranquil experience right at home.

Desert Landscape water element

 

Create a Pathway:

 

Create a small pathway using bricks, stones, or pebbles throughout your yard that leads to your backdoor or another element like a fountain or small garden area. 

 

Desert Plants:

 

Accentuate the natural elements in your landscape design by adding a few desert plants throughout such as cacti, prickly pear, succulents, and agave. These will also add a few natural pops of color and dimension. 

  

Add lighting:

 

You can add solar lights that are powered by the sun's energy, string lights, hanging lanterns, and illuminated pathways throughout your yard.  This adds a beautiful element to your design when night falls and is perfect for entertaining or simply enjoying some quiet time alone.
