This family picnic only took place about 100 years ago...
See the covered wagon in the background?
That is my Great Grandmother on the right;
The one laughing!!
I guess I come from a long line of those that know how to laugh,
And knows how to enjoy a good picnic.
In this case a day at the lake!
I just love that picnic basket that is sitting next to her.
I like to use my imagination as to what this picnic basket just might hold for lunch!
The lady on the left is wearing a full length apron over her skirt;
I just love seeing the ladies wearing aprons!
Also the swim suit that my Great grandmother is wearing looks
very modest and of course the nautical design.
Having a lovely day has always been the summer thing to do!
As a child, I have so many wonderful memories of being on the lake.
We went fishing and swimming and of course a picnic.
Being a woman that is not afraid to enjoy oneself is very becoming!
Not being overly loud and drawing attention to one's self;
But rather a person with a personality that others enjoy being around!
I have learned to laugh at myself and am not a spoil sport!
I enjoy making my husband laugh and smile;
Not a joker, but a good sense of humor!
I want to enjoy a few special days that come with every season!
Let us get outside and enjoy the simple things!
Sometimes by just being outside and filling your birdbath with fresh water,
Or watering your vegetable gardens and flower beds can refresh oneself!
In the very hot weather we like to be out very early
And the latter part of the evening!
Why is it that a picture like this can evoke such a happy feeling?
I think that we must always look well to the way of our households!
~ And to remember to have fun ~
Our days are all numbered and so we can enjoy a restful and peaceful
Day of fun and family and friends...
Do you try to take and make regular days of rest a part of your life?
Just think that your very next outing could be a blog post a 100 years from now!
(I am so funny)
