Whether it’s recording a family story or savoring a walk on the beach, these six “could-dos” are here to help you zero in on fun yet important things this weekend. Read on for all six suggestions, which include just a couple of small tasks — like ordering glasses for the upcoming total solar eclipse!
1. Keep your garden fresh in the heat. If you live in an area with hot summers, it’s important to adjust your watering routines accordingly. Aim to water more deeply but less often, and water earlier in the morning or later in the day to avoid losing too much to evaporation before your plants have a chance to drink.
2. Get settled after a move. If you moved into a new home this summer, chances are there are a few (OK, maybe more than a few) items still left on your to-do list. Block out some time this weekend to knock off a few niggling tasks, like hanging pictures or unpacking the last boxes. Then treat yourself to a scoop at the best ice-cream shop in your new neighborhood.
