While my calendar may tell me differently, it only seems fitting to consider the last day of August the official end of Summer. Like most transitions, saying goodbye to watermelon popsicles, poolside days, and tank tops and hello to caramel apples, bonfires and cardigans is bittersweet. But whether you’ve been waiting for relief from the heat since May or you’ve already started your countdown to Summer 2011, it would do you good to spend today soaking up the last of Summer’s sweet offerings. Do a little reading on your patio before dinner, treat your family to an ice cream surprise or cook up an unquestionably Summer dish like a grilled corn and tomato salad. Summer is such an enlivening season- it deserves to be celebrated! If nothing else, take advantage of the Summer to Fall sales events going on! You may have to store the best deals until the sun comes out next year, but if the price is right it’s worth doing. Check out a few of the price cuts that caught our eye.
