What April brings

1 Apr

Showers, maybe

Even in the most miserable of April rainstorms, we know that the warmer May and (gasp!) summer weather is within our grasp.  I’ll carry an umbrella over the weight of gloves, scarves and snow boots any day.  Every now and then you’ll even get an April shower that can we described as nothing less than “romantic”.  [April also brings finals and term papers for students attending accredited online colleges.]

Fresh-squeezed lemonade

Although the city’s farmers’ markets stand their own during the cold winter months, there is something refreshing about fresh-squeezed lemonade replacing hot apple cider at the markets.

Nude nail polish shades

The trend for nail polish this spring requires me to start weening off the sentimental favorite, hot coco.  Trend setters say it’s time for something a bit lighter…and who am I to argue?

National Volunteer Week (April 10 – 16)

Did you know that 96% of the Red Cross workforce is made up of volunteers?  This organization responds to 70,000 disasters each year, or one every 7.5 minutes.  I’m committed to volunteering with New York Cares at least once in April and I’ve recently been introduced to Helping Is Easy through my efforts with NY Cares.  If you’re in the city, it’s definitely worth checking them out!

Easter Sunday

It took 27 hours to make a single Peep by hand in 1953!  Today the Peep factory in Bethlehem Pennsylvania makes more than 4.2 million of the marshmallow/sugar concoctions per day.  None of which I plan to consume in celebration of the holiday.

Mom’s annual spring trip to NYC

Walking tour – wait, any tour, anyone?  It’s a “once in a lifetime opportunity!”  Again.
