Recent picnics by the river
My, how time flies. I have not yet found a moment to report on our past 2 picnics by the river en route to church. And it’s almost time for another one.
Wednesday before last (August 8) it had rained all morning, but then cleared up beautifully. We had a perfect evening for our picnic by the river. I made a new recipe called Cheeseburger Meat Loaf Hoagies, and they were delicious! I also brought along some multigrain chips and some baby carrots.
Last Wednesday (August 15) I wrote in my journal, “In the evening, we picnicked by the river in our usual favorite spot. I brought Pesto Chicken Pasta, wheat rolls, and green grapes. A yummy al fresco meal! It was cool, calm, and peaceful by the river... we always come away refreshed.”
I am thankful we decided to try and bring a picnic to the river on Wednesdays during summer and fall. It is only a half hour or so, but it’s such a nice respite from the phone and from the cares of every day.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
