April is the Best Month

Sunday, April 30th, 2006 · 1 Comment

April is not the cruelest month. It is my favorite one. Having been born on April 2, I’ve always had a fondness for the month and felt a special connection with it — after all, it’s when I came into this crazy world. And now that I’ve been living in the great Northeast for nearly two-and-a-half years, I appreciate April all the more.

Here are some of the reasons why I love April:

  • The days are getting warm — not too hot, not too cold
  • No humidity
  • Renewed growth of the Earth and of one’s priorities in life — a fresh start of things; setting new goals; starting new projects
  • After six months of cold and snow, I appreciate the sun even more
  • I can start wearing shorts again (as I am today)
  • I can wear sandals once more (as I did today to go grocery shopping)
  • The ceremonial shutting off of the heater until late October or November (just moments ago)
  • Sun, sun, sun
  • There’s an entire summer of warmth and travel and excitement to look forward to (kind of like why Friday is my favorite day of the week)
  • Porch sitting happy hour with martinis and white cheddar Cheez-Its
  • Daylight Savings Time
  • The grass is green and I get to start mowing it again (as I did today for the first time since last year)
  • The chirping birds, the scurrying squirrels, the blooming flowers
  • The smell of BBQs in the air (and grilling fish ourselves, as we are the cajun salmon tonight)

Cheers to April! Till next year, my friend.

    I love your porch! Have you tried the Tabasco Cheeze-its? They are awesome. Probably better with a bloody mary or a cold beer than paired with a martini. Spring is in the air – enjoy!
