Life is a Special Occasion!
Watermelon Seed Spitting Week is always the last week end in June. If you are at a picnic or if you are in comfort of your own backyard it's perfectly fine to spit out watermelon seeds. Go ahead and have a contest to see how far you launch them. If you're in a crowded restaurant it's probably not so appropriate. If you are celebrating, make sure you check your surroundings for innocent bystanders. It’s a good week end to kick back and savor the cool, wet goodness that is watermelon.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The other thing is quality of life; if you have a place where you can go and have a picnic with your family, it doesn't matter if it's a recession or not.
These days I usually purchase a seedless watermelon just to avoid having to spit out the seeds. Watermelons are a favorite summertime food for me. They are tasty and are very good for you too.
Summer time is a great time for a picnic out in the country and one of my families favorite things to have is what we call a ‘moving’ sub sandwich. For years and years I made this submarine sandwich to have when every anyone moved. And believe me in years past, there was a lot of moving going on in this family. Thankfully not much at all anymore though.
I really don’t have a recipe for the moving sub, but I can tell you how I make it. You take an unsliced loaf of Italian or French Bread, slice it half lengthwise. Spread liberally with creamy Italian salad dressing. Layer cold cuts and cheese of your choice, then top with red onion slices, tomatoes and lettuce. Put the two halves back together. Secure with toothpicks . Slice into serving size portions. Wrap up with saran wrap and put back into the bread bag. Refrigerate overnight so that all the flavors meld together and enjoy!
A picnic is a great excuse to get out and enjoy the summer weather. It’s to be in the mid to upper 80’s today so it’s a good day to stay in shade. This summer, enjoy your picnic sandwiches, and make sure to bring along some cake and lemonade too.
I hope you all have a super Saturday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
A picnic is more than eating a meal,
it’s a pleasurable state of mind.

DeeDee Stovel, Picnic
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over a year and have now reached over 1800 gifts. On my way to 2000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1802. for picnics in the summer
1803. for watermelon, it’s very good and good for you.
1804. for shade to sit in on a hot day
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
