2nd Annual Indian Summer Picnic! You're Invited!

Many of my dear bloggy friends and I enjoyed an Indian Summer Picnic (click here to check it out!) on the first day of Autumn last year! It was one of many virtual events in which we've participated - and had an uproarious time despite a few ...uhm...slight misadventures:
. gunpowder in the bonfire (Stevie swears it wasn't her, but she was wearing that powder horn with her Davy Crockett outfit)
. singed eyebrows (note to self - move all poets (Kat specifically) away from the fire and/or bring eyebrow pencil)
. burnt marshmallows (I know you only use a microwave, Janeen, but they don't work well with marshmallows)
lost in the woods....oh wait that was Sparky with the Park Ranger...or was it Lavinia.....
.Fell in the pond (Debby - don't ice skate until there is ice. The operative word is ICE)
Still, we travelled the entire blogworld and enjoyed Indian Summer with bloggy friends everywhere!
The plan is simple: decide what you would like to picture on your blog for the picnic on Tuesday, September 22. Use your imagination - It can be anything you would like to prepare, bring or do at your picnic.
You may want to take a picture of picnic places, picnic things you have, the wonderful foods you will prepare, birds that might visit us, something you might wear, a pet you would like to bring with you, flowers, games to play, books to read, poems to share, anything at all. Anything.

Take a picture or two that expresses your Indian Summer Picnic. Post it along with whatever you would like to say about your contribution on your post. This is an all day event that transcends time zones.
Extend this invitation to all of your readers! Everyone is invited.
If you would like to attend:
1. RSVP in comments on this post.
2. Copy the invitation and the link to this post and paste them in the margin of your blog.
I'll post the links to each of you on the 22nd so we can travel about to see what each of us has brought to the picnic.
I would love to see all of you, and all of your friends, on September 22nd. Please come! I know this will be lots of fun!

Well I just erased my attempt at tossing my picnic blanket into the ring. Obviously too many words. Suffice it to say, I'm in.

Am sure this will be so much fun, Muse! And thank you for the invitation! If things weren't so hectic here (just imagine -- I haven't posted a mini-script in a month!), I would definitely attend! But please don't forget to set aside some of your picnic goodies and beverages for me! Wishing you all a wonderful time! xo
