Well done everyone!! You made it through the first week! Now of course it was only a 4 day week but I bet it felt way longer. At a certain point in the summer, school seems for far away and remote yet you step back through that door and it seems like you never had any time off at all. Do yourself a favour and do something for yourself this weekend. There are lots of great events happening around Simcoe County.
Go to Casino Rama and spin that big wheel on The Price is Right. They're bringing all the games to the casino and maybe you could get called to 'come on down!'. It's probably the closest I'll ever get to playing that mountain climber game, yo-dee-oh-de-oh.
Go to a Farmers' Market. We grow some of the best food in the world in our back yards and we need to be shopping local and eating local and supporting local. If you're really energetic you could do some preserves but I prefer to just eat it fresh. I've considered having peaches for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If you don't want to go win fabulous prizes or go eat amazing local food then just go outside (no, that isn't me). Enjoy the last bits of summer weather. Breathe in some fresh air. Take a nap outside. Just take some time for yourself. 194 days is a long time and June is miles away. Winter will come but you can remember you took some time for yourself and you will feel better because of it. Have a great weekend!!
