I stopped at The Moscow Food Co-op (my local food co-op) for some to-go lunch and headed over to The University of Idaho Arboretum.  With my afghan knitted by my Grandma Schuldt, I hit the trail, looking at the beautiful hard-wood trees and their changing colors.  When I found a luscious spot to picnic in the sun, I laid down my afghan and spread out my lunch.  I found myself with a feeling of immense gratitude that I gave myself the fine treat of being on a picnic on a gorgeous Tuesday in October.  It's not lost on me - we are pretty darn lucky (or blessed.)  Can you take yourself on a picnic while this warm Autumn weather is happening?  It sure is fun.  Tell me about your picnic in the comments below.
