Staycation Essentials

The first long weekend of the summer us upon us in Central Alberta and it couldn’t have come at a better time. After a long, long, LONG winter, we are finally seeing warm days, sunny skies, and the smell of fresh cut grass and barbeque fills the air. While some families are packing up their trailers and heading off the grid for some camping R ‘n R, I for one will be having a staycation: nothing I enjoy more than setting up a lawn chair in my own backyard with a good book and a pitcher of iced tea (my current favorite is Electric Lemonade from David’s Tea) and then joining the besties for a late-night bonfire (I’ll be providing the makings for s’mores, of course).

But, if you’re like me, and leave everything until the last minute . . . I didn’t even realise that the Long Weekend had started until I was already IN it . . . You may be missing out on some Long Weekend essentials. But don’t stress, the weekend isn’t over yet! Make sure to stop in to The Great Indoors for anything you still need to make this Long Weekend one to remember. I for one needed to replace my scratched-up sunglasses, so I made a quick stop into Sunglass Hut, and I needed a new set of Flip Flops (luckily Zumiez was carrying my favorite brand, Havaianas, on sale . . . score!!) Next Long Weekend I’ve promised myself I’ll be a lot more prepared . . . but I know myself better than that.
