Ideas for the Last Weeks of Summer

We are very quickly approaching the cooler weather of autumn, and the days are already significantly shorter than they were a few months ago. Let’s make the most of the summer we have left, shall we?

Here are some ideas that will bring joy to you and your family now and a smile to your face when you look back from the cold of January.

  1. Eat ice cream.
  2. Go to a park and swing as high as you can. Watch your children have the time of their lives.
  3. Lay on the grass, look up, and count the stars.
  4. Find a beach and build a sandcastle.
  5. Make apple pie (or cherry or berry) and eat it. (With a huge scoop of ice cream on top, of course!)
  6. Roast marshmallows over a campfire.
  7. Have a picnic.
  8. Run through the sprinkler.
  9. Find a hill. Sit and watch the sun go down.
  10. Open a window in the early morning, close your eyes, and listen to the world awaken. Better yet, wrap yourself in a blanket and sit outside. Breathe in all that fresh air.
  11. Take your camera with you everywhere and capture these moments. Make a scrapbook or collage and display it all winter to remind you that summer is coming again.

Treasure this time… it will be just a memory all too soon, so make it the best memory you possibly can.

But don’t get depressed thinking about autumn. It has its own brand of beauty, too…

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus
