Reclaim The End of Summer!

Summer is coming to an end! Though we still have over a month left of technical summer, back to school commercials are out, cranberries are starting to turn red and we are seeing more and more overcast days in New England. This time of year always makes me long for Autumn. It also reminds me of back to school time, which I haven’t been a part of for three years now. After spending seventeen years of my life going “back to school” it’s still hard to believe I don’t have to do so again this year. (That does not stop me from eyeing pens and notebooks in the office supply of Target, however).

My point, however, is that we still have a month of summer left to enjoy! It’s not to late to get that tan (or acquire a few more freckles and burns as it goes with my skin). Take a day off and go to the beach and plan a last minute camping trip. Here’s a list of things you can do to make the best of the remaining days of summer so that by the time fall comes you know that you lived your summer to the fullest.

* Catch fireflies in a jar (but don’t forget to let them go soon after!)
* Plan a beach day
* Go clam digging
* Call up a friend and spend a day at her pool (or invite one over to yours)
* Take a vacation day and just enjoy the sun
* Make homemade popsicles
* Lay outside at night and look at the stars
* Blow bubbles
* Use sidewalk chalk to express your inner artist
* Look up concerts playing in your area
* Make lemonade or sun tea
* Wear sunglasses everywhere
* Buy new bright colours for your bedroom
* Go on some sort of harbour cruise
* Take advantage of sales to go clothes shopping for next summer

What are your plans to reclaim summer?
