First Friday Five: Summer Nights

Not only does June bring the longest day of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere at least) but the worst heat of the summer usually doesn’t kick in until the next turn of the calendar page.  Here are five ways to enjoy a perfect summer night.

1. Walk barefoot in the grass – unless you have nettles in the yard – those suckers hurt.

2. Chase fireflies. Mason jars optional. 

3. Go to a baseball game. It doesn’t matter whether it’s major, minor or the t-ball set.

4. Invent constellations.

5. Stroll down the street eating an indulgent full-fat ice cream or gelato. 

Well, I’m hungry so I’m off to take my own advice. What’s your favorite way to spend a summer night?
