(A-Z) A is for April Showers




As I said yesterday, April is looking like a busy month. I don't think I like that but then again it beats being bored and lazy.  Lazy is one of those past-times, that I tend to feel guilty about. That's why I love August. It's hot, I'm sick of hot weather and I want to be lazy. Nothing wrong with that!

April around here brings a mixed array of weather. We will have rain. We will have wind. We will have warm weather. You just never know. I'm actually hoping we have rain, simple because of the drought we are in. Of course I love the warm weather and sunshine - but since I will be busy anyway, this might be a good month for it to rain.

April Showers Brings May Flowers.

  1. We have had too much rain already. I know we need it, but maybe if it was only an occasional shower in the month of April! We had a mudslide here in West Virginia on Sunday. It wasn't as bad as the mudslide out in Washington State which is probably why it only made it to the local news- no loss of life or property but it closed a main road. Great Start to the A-Z!

    1. It's a beautiful sunny day here in northern California. Woke up to snow on all the mountains.

  3. While several days of rain in a row is a bit depressing, California sorely needs it. In our town, two of our wells have run dry. We've had to start pumping from the river and the river isn't as full as it usually is, so not sure how long that will last, either.

    1. Wow. That is scary. I just turn on the tap - but we have been saving some of the rain water in trash cans.

  4. Nice topic. We get rain almost any time of the year but spring is a good one. It's starting to warm up, almost able to sit in apartment without blankets (which I'm the opposite as the cold makes me feel lazy) and soon we'll see those flowers.

    A to Z commenter :-)

    1. Too Cold makes me lazy too. I just want to curl up with my dog or with my cat on my lap and read or take a nap. We already have flowers - roses are getting buds on them, the orange California poppies are everywhere. We've had a mild winter - with very little rain so many trees and flower bushes have bloomed.

  6. April often brings that array of weather all in one day, sun, rain wind then sun again. Today was warm and bright where I am, perfect weather giving you that push to move and be busy. Nice first post for the challenge.

    Bring on the sun!

    1. Yes I have mud too - in the backyard, the water does not drain well so it is a huge muddy mess. My dog brings in mud. I'm getting tired of stopping her before she comes in, to wipe her paws. It's funny, she is used to it now and lifts her paws...

  8. Well, I hope you get the rain you desire. It was beautifully sunny here in Limerick, Ireland today.

  9. I keep hoping for rain too. We need it in Southern California, the tumbleweeds were really small last year. If it rains they will cancel the baseball games and I can stay home. It drizzled this morning but that doesn't count as rain. They keep promising but nothing happens and it's supposed to be 80 by the weekend. Glad to see you're doing the A to Z.

    1. WE had about a week of some pretty decent rain. Today is clear and sunny and everyone is out.

  10. I am so ready for spring! I don't want showers and storms though. How about just some sunshine! It's been a long winter for us.
