Yep, April means a lot of things when you live in upstate New York.

Skirts and flip flops one day

Sweatshirts and boots the next

In means some day you rise from bed to jog in warm sunrise

Or groan and huff in freezing wind that makes you wheeze

It means Winter may be over, but Summer’s not here yet by a long shot

It means dinner not getting on the table till 7pm is fine cuz its still light out and the girls are still playing outside anyway

It means you will say at least a dozen times  more:

“No! it is NOT warm enough to play in the hose”

Its hopeful and expectant and full as of many plans as the days are long.

ITS SPRING AT LAST IN ALL ITS UPS AND DOWNS AND TINY PLEASURES AND VIBRANT COLORS AND WACKY MOODS.

Come to think about it:

its a lot like us.

Cheers.

  1. Am exercising the Gma perogative to lift photos for refrigerator… Just sayin’…. Love your new neighbors in the birdhouse! And I remember a very memorable picnic with Jake when it was, yes, 40* and windy…. but it was memorable! Bet yours is too. Enjoy the day!
