What’s up with this icky weather? Not exactly ideal for spending time outside. Read on for 5 alternatives to picnicking and tanning.
1. Visit a museum. 7 North County institutions are offering half price this month. Why not forget June Gloom by spending the day in a beautiful building with no windows?
3. Make yourself some comfort food like mac ‘n’ cheese. (Specifically, carbs are loaded with serotonin, which is the happy chemical you usually get from being exposed to sunshine.) So make something yummy! And here are some interesting cooking classes you can sign up for.
4. Take a mini-vacay to Palm Springs. It’s supersunny there, and they have great hotel rates, starting June 1.
5. Wander the exhibit halls at the San Diego County Fair. Buy yourself a slicer & dicer and marvel at the arts & crafts entries—they will, uh, warm the cockles of your heart (did we really just write that?). Fun fact: Geneen Montgomery, our advertising art director, won First Place at age 12 for her peanut butter cookies—and has since lost the recipe.
