What to Do in the Last Few Weeks of Summer
It might not seem like it, but winter is coming. In no time, we’ll be shivering, buried up to our noses in snow, and wishing it were summer again. OK, while winter probably won’t be that severe, the end of summer coming up means that you have only a little time to make good on all the things you’ve been meaning to do this season – and a chance to do them all again before that first snowflake falls. Don’t let summer slip away without getting to these things!
Do Your Favorite Summer Activities One Last Time
Whether you still haven’t made it out to the beach or you’ve been every other weekend, your opportunities to get out and soak up the sun will be pretty limited soon. Before you know it, you’ll want to stay inside wrapped up in a blanket rather than traverse the frozen tundra of winter. So, take some time to do the things you’ve been meaning to do, or that you’ve loved to do, this summer, especially when the weather isn’t too hot or too cold, but just right. Go camping, attend a bonfire, eat at one last cookout – you won’t be able to soon, and you might look back on this time with nostalgia, wishing you’d done those summery activities more often.
Go on Those Trips You’ve Been Meaning to Go On
During the warmer months, we’re not just more likely to spend time outside, but we’re also more likely to go out, period. So if you’ve been meaning to take a weekend to travel out to the country or you’ve just wanted to check out that new restaurant across town, once winter hits, you’ll be infinitely less likely to want to drive very far to go anywhere, much less head outside. Though, with the cold and the snow, no one can blame you too much for that.
Hang Out With the Students in Your Life While You Can
The end of summer, for students from kindergarten to university, means the end of summer break. So, if you have any students in your life, be it your kids entering the next grade or your work buddies who are taking some night classes, make sure you make some time for them, as they’re about to get busy. Be sure to ask them about their upcoming semester. Even if they aren’t thrilled about returning to school, there’s always something to look forward to with the fresh start of a new school year.
Get Ready for the Fall
Just because summer is going doesn’t mean you have to be upset about it. Autumn’s just around the corner! There’s much to like about fall, from football season starting up again to the leaves crunching under your feet. So get excited! Pull those warm clothes and coats out of storage and stock up on apple cider and hot chocolate. You’ll have your own checklist of fall activities to complete, and strange as it may be, you might just find that you’re kind of glad summer is over!
