I guess that I should be planning and focusing on the fall season, but I’m not. I’m still stuck on summer. Fall doesn’t begin until September 23rd, so I still have three more weeks to enjoy summer. I haven’t crossed off all of the things on my personal and family "Summer To Do List", so I hope to cross of the last three before summer ends. They are:
1. Take my son to the New York Aquarium.
2. Go away for a long weekend to the Hamptons. [No, we’re not (financially) rich…we just go off-season. You’ll be amazed at the prices that you can get if you go just a week after Labor Day. Fortunately, my husband gets a gazillion holidays now that he’s a teacher, so we’ll be going away for the long Rosh Hashanah/Ramadan week-end.]
3. Go to High Tea at Lady Mendl’s (http://www.innatirving.com/dining-lady.asp). [Although high tea isn’t a traditional summer activity, it’s one of the things that I love. I vowed to myself that I would go to a different high tea at least once every three months. I’m going with a friend on the 22nd…I’m cutting it close.]
Don’t forget to end your summer on a great note!
