Back in June, which seems forever ago now, I posted a summer list of all the fun things I wanted to do. As we head into fall, I thought I’d post an update (since it’s nearly time to make a new list). Here’s how I did:
Eat all the summer fruits (rhubarb, peaches, tomatoes and every kind of berry I can find). Pretty sure I’ve eaten my weight in peaches, berries and cherries. Related: go to the farmers’ market at Harvard and maybe the one over at Copley Square.I’ve been to the Harvard market nearly every week, where I’ve bought lots of berries (see above), tomatoes, zucchini, and a few strawberry basil popsicles. (Also: lots of tamales.) Wear skirts and shorts as often as possible.I’ve basically been living in them for months. Get a pedicure (or two).Yes. Snuggle my friends’ baby, Evie. I’ve been hanging out with Evie and her mama, Abi, about once a week. So much fun. Go visit my family in Texas.I had a great time.
Laugh and laugh with J at episodes of Modern Family. We’re in the middle of season 4 and still laughing our heads off.
Go kayaking on the Charles River.One of my favorite new activities this summer.
Drink lemonade and sangria. Yes and yes. Eat lots of ice cream (and fro-yo).Again, yes and yes. The hubs is a frequent co-conspirator.
Take lots of long walks (to counterbalance the ice cream). Definitely. Soak up every bit of summer sunshine – summer in New England is lovely but fleeting. I’ve done my best, and it has been glorious.
