As so many people have been pointing out lately, the days of summer are waning. Now, on the one hand I find it really annoying that this keeps coming up because there are still 37 days until September 22nd. But! On the other hand I’m sort of glad it has come up because it has made me think about what things I want to accomplish before summer is over. I’m sure you won’t be surprised to know that I’ve thought of three.
- Go on vacation to Cape Cod. This will be happening come Saturday and I’m really looking forward to a week away with the kids. Not all the kids will be with us all of the week and some not at all but most of the week will include most of them and this year we have the added fun of Jackie! Cross your fingers for good weather for us, won’t you? I’m hoping for plenty of beach time along with bike riding and swimming, hanging out and reading, eating lobster and drinking rosé!
- Have ice cream from Polar Cave. I only get to this ice cream parlor when we’re on vacation and I look forward to it all year. Those fresh made (warm!!) waffle cones are such a treat and the ice cream flavors are truly fabulous. It’s a treat and a half every time we go.
- Finish the pergola and have a dinner party to celebrate. Really, we’re about done except for getting the curtains up and Dale was working on that yesterday so perhaps by the time you’re reading this he’s done. Once it’s all finished I want to have a few friends over to light the candles and eat delicious food and enjoy an evening under this summer’s big project.
What do you want to do before summer is over?
