By about this point in the summer, the heat has exhausted me, and my interest to do much outside is limited. But this special summer night was perfect for a picnic under the stars. Well, it started in the sunlight and ended under the stars, accompanied by the flitting of fireflies. Stories were told, good food was enjoyed, and laughter was abundant.
Impromptu picnics are fun any time of year. I’ve held picnics in the living room in the middle of winter, as well as the traditional summer outside picnics. On vacation, we take a “breakfast picnic” to enjoy after we hike up to our favorite view of the lake. Picnics are ideal to enjoy at outdoor concerts and movie showings. There are so many venues to enjoy picnics. The tone is set for fun just by announcing “This is a picnic!”
