One of my simple plans for this spring/summer season is to soak in the season by going on picnics. Picnics with family, picnics with friends, and even picnics all by myself. There's something truly delightful about a checkered blanket and a goodie-filled basket.
Today after work, I embarked on my first picnic! I packed myself a chicken sandwich, a bowl of olives, some natural cheetos and some iced water. And, to crown it all, one of my blue and white china plates.
With basket and checkered cloth in hand, I walked a ways out into the orchards surrounding our house, which have now lost their blossoms and are filling out with fresh new leaves.
It was simple. It was quiet. It was a fun way to spend the dinner hour.
Try it. You may like picnics, too!
