One last picnic lunch

"You know what, Pa?" said Augie last Monday, "It's a great day for a picnic!" It was in the 60s and sunny, and he was right. Tuesday was equally nice, and we did it again. The sun is low in the sky even at noon, and every few minutes another flock of geese flew over, announcing the end of summer. It turned colder Wednesday, and tonight it has begun to snow.

It was a fabulous October, and November opened without its usual bluster. I'm glad we celebrated the turning of the seasons. Any picnics will have to be indoors for the next six months or so.

Those picnic days in late fall are a treasure!

Augie had a good idea and I'm glad you got that last outdoor picnic in. We also have had fall picnic weather until this last week, but any picnics now will have to be indoors for a while.

What a wonderful day! We have been having quite a few unaccustomed nice sunny days in early November, but since they are not going to last, I'm soaking them in, just like you did!
