It’s cold and wintery out – so what better time to think about your perfect picnic!!
My perfect picnic would be:
The sun is bright and the sky is blue. There is a slight breeze and it is not too hot out. It is mid-August. The bees are buzzing and the birds are singing. There is a feeling of Autumn just around the corner.
I head to a lovely green hill, with trees softly blowing in the wind around me. I have a lovely view of the town from the hill. I spread my blanket out on the grass and sit down to take in the view and peacefulness.
As I reach for my basket, I gently wave away a bee flying by. From in my picnic basket, I pull out a fresh baguette, purchased from the local bakery. Then comes some delicious aromatic cheeses from the deli. Juicy red and green grapes accompany the cheese and bread. To wash this all down is a bottle of the best sparkling water, with a twist of lemon added to it. As I slowly eat my feast before me, I relish in the quietness of the day and the warmth of the sun.
After I have nourished myself, I bring out the book I have brought, lay down and read for a while. Perhaps I will have a journal with me so I can write my thoughts of the beautiful day I am enjoying. Or perhaps I will just lay down on my back, watching the clouds float by, trying to see what the clouds are showing me. Are they shaped like an animal? Perhaps a balloon? Only my imagination will know!
As an extra treat, I have brought with me some decadent dark chocolate to enjoy as I hear the children in the town playing at the local swimming pool and at the park.
This is the perfect picnic for me.
So what is your perfect picnic? What will you bring with you? Are you by yourself or with someone?
