A picnic by the river!
Longtime readers will remember that Mr. T and I used to picnic by the river nearly every Wednesday evening in summer and fall on the way to church. Due to changes in our lives and Mr. T's work schedule, that just hasn't been possible for a long, long time.
Today Mr. T got home from work mid-morning due to weather-related problems at work. He proposed that we pick up some subs and chips, grab a couple bottles of water from the fridge and have a picnic by the river for lunch today! Of course, I was only too happy to go along with the idea. Rain was threatening, but it held off while we were eating. It was actually a more tranquil, leisurely picnic than those we used to have, because there were no time constraints. We could just take time and enjoy the quiet there by the river. What a blessing in the midst of a busy day! God is so good to give us these little surprises in our lives from time to time.
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.
