Tag: long weekend

Can you believe that it is almost Thanksgiving? If you live in southern Ontario, you would not think so from the incredibly hot and humid weather we are having at the end of September. But yes, the last long weekend of the year is almost upon us. It is a great time to rest and relax, but if you would like to spend that extra day in a more practical way, here are some suggestions:

Get some extra exercise

The weather is looking very promising for this Thanksgiving long weekend in southern Ontario, so why not do something outside? Go for a run, play catch, play some pick up road hockey, kick a ball around the soccer field in the park, etc. Look at it this way: you will be helping to work off the extra pounds you will put on from the turkey and pumpkin pie.

Read that novel you got for Christmas

Do not have any plans with friends and family? Why not spend the weekend in the most relaxing manner possible: read a good book. You probably have some books left over that you have not yet cracked the spine on. Here is your chance!

Visit your local friends

People automatically default to traveling on the holidays, but maybe that is not in the cards for you this year. Why not give your local friends a call instead? Sometimes we get so busy with life that we forget the friends we have nearby. They’re probably off, too, and may well be looking for something to do. Pick up the phone!

Spend quality time with your children

We are all so busy with life, everything seems to suffer, including the amount of time we spend with our families. Take the chance to do something really special with your children. Make a whole day of it.
