Before Z was born, I rarely used my deck. As a newlywed, I remember my aunt and uncle visiting and them commenting on the beauty of the deck and the outdoors surrounding it. They said they would love to eat breakfast out there. At that time, my breakfast consisted of grabbing a banana and running out the door to attempt to be on time for teaching 2nd grade which started at 7:15 a.m. Needless to say, breakfast outside on the deck was a rare happening.
Since Z was born, she’s loved outside. Even as a crying newborn, the minute we stepped outside, the crying would almost always magically stop and she would gaze around in wonder. Since that time, we go outside almost daily (providing there’s no heavy rain!)
On this day, it was absolutely gorgeous so we had an outdoor picnic. I love the greenery outside. We have vincas (in the yellow doodly pots – couldn’t resist doodling on them), zinnias, morning glories, cypress vine flowers, and gerber daisies (in tupperware boxes that I painted stripey and splattery and holed for H2O drainage).
While taking a breather to hair-twist…So I know my title is Pie in the Sky because it sounded better, but we actually had grilled cheese sandwiches. Healthier too. Love this wheaty bread. She ate (for her standards), a good bit. It’s got cream cheese as well as American sliced cheese and then lightly grilled on the sandwich maker…Mmmm. I finished the left overs.
Crumbs are celebrated! Luckily for Z, she is 100% washable.
Hoping for more picnic-able Pie/Sandwich/You-Name-It in the Sky days ahead of us!
