Here's how to while away a lovely summer afternoon in the Mitten:
1. Plan dinner around a batch of fresh sweet corn.
2, Spend some time on a shady bench. Napping is recommended
3. Appreciate the blue sky full of fluffy white clouds. But the summer sun is surprisingly hot so do not linger in its presence.
4. Play a billion rounds of Harry Potter Uno with your awesome and amazing nephews.
And all the while, let this song play on repeat in your head, just as it did in mine all day.
