Staying Comfy April

This months Staying Comfy is about spring.

I'm glad it's April. March is too unpredictable. Charles Dickens described it best....
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens

I love the warm temperatures in spring. I like how the nights are just cool enough for a good sleep, and the days just right for getting outside.
I like to plant things, I'm not good at it, but it's fun. Most stuff I plant don't grow.

I don't enjoy my hands being dirty so I DO wear gloves, maybe that's the problem. LOL

I do love all the flowers, even the poor old dandelions.


There was a dandelion,
With lovely, fluffy hair,
That glistened in the sunshine,
And in the summer air.
And oh! This pretty dandelion
Soon grew old and grey,
And, sad to tell! Her charming hair,
Blew many miles away.

I have only minor allergies from pollen. Lately my eyes have been itching like crazy though. Maybe my new mascara...?

I love how everything comes alive in spring. Plants, flowers, animals, and birds. Too bad all the bugs come alive too. That's a drawback for me. Bugs ... I don't like grasshoppers. {Eeew I wrote the word!} --We have trouble with red wasps, and ants.

I am glad the little humming birds are back though.It's good to have a time of refreshing. To be away from the winter and the cold. It makes you want to refresh and organize indoors too, like Mole from Wind In the Willows. As the story goes though, Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing. Whereupon he declared, "Hang spring-cleaning!" and bolted out of the house without even waiting to put on his coat. Something up above was calling him...

Enjoy your spring, indoors and out.

  1. Great job! Boy your graphic's and added things about Mole from the "Wind in the Willow" and Charles Dickens made your writing so interesting. I'm going to have to do more with mine next time. I enjoyed it. Thanks, Tam.
