Even though it was the first official weekend of fall, temperatures in the Bay reached the 90s. I knew my brain was on the verge of overheating when I woke up on Saturday and the first thing I did was start worrying about when I was going to take my car in for its tune-up (among a gazillion–trust me, a gazillion– other inane things). When I start feeling this level of anxiety creep over me, I try to make it a point to remind myself to relax and that my car is not actually going to blow up if it goes another day or two un-tuned. This weekend I found the best combination of things to do should another worry-wart attack/heat wave pop up again. Here are three of my favorite things to do that are guaranteed to calm even the most frazzled nerves (and keep you cool):
1) Have tea with a friend. Iced tea at Lovejoy’s (pictured above) is particularly refreshing on hot days. Their cozy ambiance and scones with Devonshire cream make me want to linger here for hours.
