Did we all survive April Fool's Day?
I'm not sure I can say it's ever been a day I enjoy. I think my parents probably got me with a prank or two when I was a kid, usually because I forgot what day it was, or didn't know and they'd wake me in the morning with something harmless and then I'd realize it later. No big deal. But honestly I don't enjoy pranks or tricks or teasing and the day, as I got older, became quite stressful. So I'm glad it's, yet again over. Phew!
I had a nice weekend this weekend. Got out and about a lot. It was beautifully sunny and warm but not overly so. The air is fresh and clean right now and we really are fully into Spring. Blossoms about, birds doing bird things, all that good stuff.
I saw various awesome animals this weekend. Some otter-seal-sea lion types, lots of birds including a raptor I can't quite identify that flew RIGHT overhead super low (it was amazing) and my first time seeing elk!
Currently finding the balance between sunscreen and hat and still managed to get too much sun apparently (maybe through the windscreen of the car, no seriously!)
It's the second of April now. March was good. Which is weird to say as it had some very difficult moments, but maybe it is just having the longer days and the brighter light that helps things feel a bit easier. And I don't want to jinx anything by typing this, but getting some sleep in makes a world of difference too. (Seriously.)
So here's to April and Spring and hopefully a fresh air bonanza these coming months.
