Now that June is here it seems like we should always be picnicking! Our neighbors, the Sullivans, invited the whole gang over for a picnic tonight. I was asked to bring dessert, and i knew right away what to bring! Watermelon! But before Hummus and I could go shopping, I needed to clean the house. So I put on my favorite caftan, and off to clean the upstairs. A mother’s work is NEVER done.
Hummus and I tried to go to the new market, but they close midday for “Siesta” so we went to the local supermarket to get the watermelon. Can you see how sleepy he looks?
We got home just in time to greet the older kids as they arrived home from school. I sliced my watermelon and ran upstairs for a quick bath while Hummus napped. I heard some squawking from the sun room, where I had left the watermelon out, and guess who had “borrowed” a chicken from some neighbors we barely know and was chasing it around? I will give you a hint, it wasn’t Starling!
That very same little scamp got sent up early to bed while the rest of us went next door for our picnic. I hope he could hear everyone playing in the pool and regretted his behavior! The Sullivans seemed upset that he wasn’t with us, but so be it! He was naughty so no treats for him. I had a great time with their dog!
After dinner the hubby and I frolicked in the Sullivans’ wheelbarrow. What a great day for a picnic!
