April Showers Bring May Flowers

Although the weather is beautiful this morning, it’s been raining off and on all week.  And I have to admit, I do love a rainy day.  Too many and I get cabin fever and we do indeed get plenty of rainy days in the Maritimes.  But the occasional rainy day is sublime when spent curled up on the couch with a good book, a sleeping kitty and a hot cup of tea.  I love listening to nothing but the pattering of raindrops off every surface.  And April showers are necessary to get those colourful blooms and the smell of freshly cut grass (remember that??).  I hope everyone is safe and that flood waters are receding after all the rain we had this week.

Ahhh, the sweet joy of doing nothing.

It’s a tough life for the kitties.

We are very lucky in the Maritimes that we don’t have to deal with serious earthquakes like the one that devastated Nepal on Saturday and has claimed more than 2000 lives.  We do have our hurricanes, and those can be very destructive, but a disaster on this scale is unimaginable to me. If you would like to help with the relief efforts, here are some suggestions:

Sending Maritime Love and light to all in Nepal and those heading there on rescue and relief missions.
