The Great Outdoors- Everything Tastes Better

A simple meal, even your favorite sandwich with chips/fries and a cold drink will taste better with the backdrop of nature or a beautiful garden area.
All it takes is an extra 15 minutes to grab a tray-a colorful plate and napkin [ cloth ] and invite your sweetheart to join you.  The first time [without guests] you do this he may be caught a bit off guard and be wondering 'what's up' with this?  Make it a habit on beautiful weather days and he will begin to see it for what it is- a loving gesture that says "I want to spend time with you." 
I think you will find yourselves lingering longer over your ordinary meal..making another sweet memory.
By the way- you don't have to have a sweetheart to do this..grab a friend. That works too.


Looking Forward ~


  1. Now that evenings are cooler I think I'll suprise my love with your idea, :)

  2. So true!! ANYTHING. Tastes better when eaten outside...as long as the gnats & skeeters are miles away!

    I've been able to linger outside & I love it!!

    Hope all is well. I'm better! Prayer works!

  3. With company like you and a scene like that, there should be lots of lingering. We used to eat out on the patio a lot when my kids were little. It's finally starting to get nice out here this week, so maybe we'll find ourselves out there soon!


This is intended to be an exchange of thoughts, recollections and ideas.
