They’re back! Picnics, that is. The weather has been great. Restaurant prices not so much. But if you still want that luxury feeling of dining al fresco’, have a picnic. Find a safe, open space, pack a lunch and simply enjoy. We found a Great Lake complete with picnic tables, up in the mountains near us. I bought this really bright, well-made picnic tablecloth. Most of every edible I packed was from Aldi (as was the tablecloth).

Hubby and I just sat, relaxed and spent some quiet time, alone, outside, by the lake.

Note: Make the best of this holiday weekend as you can. We can’t have everything, but we certainly can have something. Make that something the best it can be. More later, coming up.
