Short April Recap
May 9, 2016 § Leave a comment
End of April was busy. We had a houseguest from home for three weeks…
…and, correspondingly, a lot of laundry. One day I ran out of drying rack space. Since it was sunny, I hung the two pairs of still-damp wool socks on the curtain rail to finish drying:
Well, why not! 🙂
Apart from visits to area attractions, there was also out-of-state training, movies and eating out. We also played board and card games. And Mr. E got fantastic non-job-related news, plus a promising job-related lead. Life is good in that sense.
The weather has been surprisingly uneven, though. We had cool, even cold days for April (see the wool socks above!). Then the temps swung in the other direction and it was marvelously warm and sunny. Flowers have been out for weeks already, but the grass took time coming. Here are a few clumps of dandelions on a dry patch of the lawn.
I’ve never been terribly fond of dandelions, but this spring they were very welcome – that dry patch has been looking so desolate. Plenty of rain showers at the end of April and early May did the trick, though; it’s much greener now. (But it’s colder again, brr. This past weekend we were 10 degrees F / about 6 degrees C below average for early May.)
How was your April?
