I am in love with April
I am rather in love with April this year. The winter seemed colder and stormier and harsher. I was awash in depressing greenness and almost feeling like I needed to punch and kick my way out of the weight of water laden clouds to get to some light. Then the sun broke through and the flowers began to bloom, and even though most days are still rainy hereI still find that the temperature has warmed enough that I am no longer having to huddle close to out wood stove with a jacket on. Seriously there were weeks when the thermometer in my kitchen read 48 degrees and I wondered why I didn't unplug the fridge and just leave food on the counter. This with cords of firewood going up the chimney constantly.
Spring break has ended and we have 46 days left before my youngest graduates from high school. Both my sons just got jobs at the local grocery store and life is taking on a more promising, hopeful feeling.
Hope you have a happy spring, if you are in the Northern hemisphere like me. My friends down under tell me the days are getting colder. I know the balance works that way, but it is strange to talk to someone who is in Fall mode as I surround myself with daffodils, rhododendrons and seeds.
