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...
