Now that things are starting to open up again, ‘ve been making plans for how to spend the summer. It’s a pleasure to be able to go outside, be with others, and enjoy the nice weather…even if it means, sometimes, going to a nice air-conditioned theater.
I foresee picnics, trips to the museums, the occasional beach day (if I can get a ride), and weekends with friends in the mountains of upstate New York. I have a lot of catching up to do after the disaster that was summer 2020.
What are your summer plans? Doing anything special to celebrate how things are opening up again? Let us know in the comments!
