Soggy Holiday

This  Memorial Day Weekend was very wet, drizzly and actually cold.  I think it was Mother Nature's way of giving us a break from mulching. It's difficult to have a fun cookout on a rainy day unless you  have a fireplace and some dry wood.  We had both so we moved our celebratory picnic inside. There was no need to cancel as Natureman started a fire and we had our picnic for 2 being dry and warm.

In fact we had to wait a bit for those flames and their heat to die down to have some good embers.  What's a  picnic without Natureman's infamous potato salad?  He  did add beets to this batch. The dreary day must have demanded something different.

At first I though we'd spread a blanket on the floor but with a dry table and much more comfortable chairs nearby, it was a no brainer to choose the chairs over the floor.

I don't know about the rest of western Wisconsin but we were slugs all day... I even called it an early evening. It's good to be a slug every once in a while even in the End of the Rainbow Valley...


  1. I was wondering how you managed to have a fire - duh! We came close to cooking marshmallows over the gas stove but they decided they were too full by that time.
