Life really can be a picnic!

Everyone loves a picnic! This blog is about some of the things I love the most, and the term "picnic" just about covers them all. First of all, a picnic has to include food; simple food that is easy to fix. Next, you need someplace fun or different to visit; a nice, peaceful location. And of course, you always need to take along a good book to read and a well-used quilt to spread everything out on. So, there you have it! Easy recipes, good books, fun quilts along with some interesting, down-to-earth places to visit. You can even take your family or a friend or two if you want.

Everything's Bigger in Texas

"A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool." ~ William Shakespeare

     My husband and I spent nearly two weeks in Texas with my daughter, her husband and three boys to celebrate their tenth anniversary.  Traveling with my grandchildren was so much fun.  They were so entertaining.  I wanted the boys to learn about the Alamo before we arrived there so I downloaded the book What Was the Alamo? on my kindle and read it to them on the way.  I was surprised that they actually listened and enjoyed it and learned from it.
     I also took along a quilt that I have been working on for a while and was able to finish it up as we drove in the van.  Here it is.  The pattern is called Cotton Harvest and it's designed by Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek.

     Here are some pictures from our visit to the Alamo.

Here's the book I read to the grand kids.  I thought it was very informative and it went into great detail on those famous figures that were involved in the Alamo.
