The weekend is here. That is a phrase that used to mean something, but these days the weekend isn’t as different from the rest of the week.
There’s not as much to do, for one. But more so, it just doesn’t feel as different for those who are working from home. That’s doubly true if you have kids, and the weekend is only a slightly less stressful version of the work week — blending together in a 2020 stew of nonstop activity and frequent anxiety.
Anyhow, here are the most-read articles of the week:
- Wakefield Graduate And Former Varsity Quarterback Dies At 20
- Arlington Records New Summer Peak in COVID-19 Cases

As the summer winds down, it’s a great time to look forward to a creative fall! Art House 7 has a terrific selection of classes, for preschoolers to adults. Our fall session, starting September 6, offers painting, drawing, sculpture, collage, ceramics (including the wheel) and sewing. We have specialty classes such as Suminagashi, the ancient art of Japanese water marbling.
