Comments for Indoor Picnic
Indoor Picnic: 01/27/07
I think watering my garden has the same effect as washing my car. After being told on the news that we were way below normal for rain fall and not to expect any rain until well into February, the heavens opened up and its been raining since yesterday at noon. It hasn't be a consistent rain but frequent enough to stop us from going to Lake Chabot for our picnic.
Yesterday's lunch time news cast was funny to watch because the meteorologist seemed completely surprised by the rain. Just an hour before she had told us it would be clear and cold until next weekend. Then she had to come back and say that her report was obviously incorrect because it was now raining. The current prediction has it raining through Monday.
Rather than give up completely on the picnic idea, we spread our blanket on the floor in our living room and at our sandwiches inside. Harriet thought it was the funniest thing seeing her entire family sitting on the floor with her while she was in her bouncy seat. She entertained us by playing peakaboo with her burp cloth.
While it wasn't a trip to the lake, it was fun. It was good and silly fun.
