Secrets To A Great Weekend

As summer days die down, we're squeezing the most into them and fondly holding on.

Weekend simplicity can still be found with just the right mixture of ingredients:

Work & Play

Start off with a Friday afternoon dip in the lake to cool you off. It helps beat the heat when the 90 degree weather decides to make an unexpected return.

Saturday morning goes best when you ease into the weekend with some playtime while still in your pj's.

There's always plenty to do around home and work can be turned into a Fun Family Activity, at least as long as all of the hooligans can cooperate and help.

A huge storage tote full of delicious apples will easily turn into either an excellent penance or a project of productivity.

We'll be glad come winter when we have applesauce and apple pie filling to retrieve off the shelves.

A long worked on project will get finished and the months of long labor, planning and coordination will finally come to fruition. Final touches will be made and move in day will arrive. After five years together, brother and sister will be separated and each will find a new way to live separately.

Bittersweet moments are the perfect addition to the weekend.

Top off Sunday afternoon with another little dip in the water and boat ride. In Minnesota you never know when it just might be the last of the season.
