Is It Time For A Picnic Yet?

I have lived in Illinois all of my life. Winter weather is nothing new around here. But, just because I know the snow and cold is coming every year doesn't mean that I like it.  We got another 5 inches last night. I am so over winter!!

I started thinking about summer time and all the wonderful things I can do with my family. The first thing that crossed my mind was taking my girls on a picnic. I would love to have a picnic basket full of sandwiches and snacks and take my girls somewhere fun.

Another thing I am really missing right now is my grill! I really got into grilling this summer and I can't wait until I can get out there again. I am definitely going to need a new BBQ Set. I used all my of cutting boards and tools so much I think it is time for new ones this year.

Thanks for listening to my daydream. I have to keep thinking of fun, happy summer time things so the winter blues don't get to me.



  1. I'm so with you about being done with winter. I'm always ready for winter to end and we don't get snow here. It's just so cold and gloomy and short days and cold and you don't want to be outside. The list is so very long. At least we only have about another month to six weeks and things start to thaw out here.

    Have a terrific day Lydia and stay warm. Big hugs. :)

  2. We are in the middle of a deep chill, -20C which is about -4F. Hubby asked for steak the other night for supper. I asked him if he was going to cook it, he said he would grill it on the BBQ! It was even colder that evening than it is today!

    I too am looking forward to winter going away, but unfortunately where we live, it will be wintery for another few months
