first weekend of summer planning

Have a Great Summer!

Happy Summer, everyone! I hope your solstice was as beautiful as ours was. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer June day!

Now that an official summer weekend has arrived, here’s what I’m hoping to do with it:

  • Get some late night culture. The Smithsonians are all open until midnight on Saturday as a special once-a-year treat. Also, the By the People Festival wraps up this Sunday, and I didn’t get to any of the events last weekend…
  • Watch Shakespeare in the park (or, at least, the front yard of a church). I only wish it weren’t The Taming of the Shrew, but beggars can’t be choosers and this is the only outdoor Shakespeare in the District anymore.
  • Weed. So much rain=so many uninvited plants in my garden.
  • Apply for some jobs.
  • Make iced tea. I’ve already washed out a gallon-sized milk jug to make it in.
  • Bake something with cherries. Perhaps a pie.
  • Buy raspberries. I have yet to see any at farmers markets, but I have faith.
  • Catch up on Endeavour. PBS doesn’t come in over the air for us (unless it’s raining), so we have to watch online and we haven’t had a chance to see the season premiere yet.
  • Rip back the part of the shawl where the yarn is noticeably weird so I can finish it next week.
  • Spend as much time outside as humanly possible, since the heat and humidity are lurking around the corner, ready to leap out as soon as the weekend is over.

How about you? What’s on tap for your weekend?
