Caroline and Elizabeth had an outing on Sunday, with parents of course, looking for a place to have their family spring pictures taken. This was in the art district near the Hunter Museum.
Today it is gloomy, raining and just the right day to do some mending, hemming, and sorting. I have pretty much finished taking out summer and putting in winter clothes in the closet. I have lost a little weight, so I need to take up some side seems, etc.
The Latin word aperio, meaning "to open or bud," gives us the name April.
Spring festivals around the world abound, from Earth Day to Arbor Day.
This year, Passover , a week long Jewish festival, begins at sundown on April 14.
Easter Sunday falls on April 20. The dates of Easter are tied to the full Moon and the vernal equinox (not the civil calendar).
Folklore for the Season:
April showers bring May flowers.
When April blows his horn, It's good for both the hay and corn.
If the first three days in April be foggy, rain in June will make the lanes boggy.
A cold April the barn will fill.
