This past week was filled with sunny and warm days in the Boston area. It was my last week of summer since I start classes tomorrow. To take advantage of one of my last few days of freedom, Tom and I decided to plan a day with one of my favorite summer pastimes: reading on a blanket under a tree.
We chose our books (Antigone for him, House of Mirth for me), packed up some cheese, crackers and peaches for a picnic snack and head out to the local town green. We laid out our blanket in the shade and read for a couple of hours with the breeze tickling our bare feet and birds twittering nearby. It was a perfectly relaxing afternoon date. :)
P.S. Do you have any ideas for cheap or free dates? Share them in them in the comments section!
