April Simplicities
March 31st, 2015 1:05 PM


April is a wonderful month with the scent of reawakening blooms and Mother Nature's brilliant display of color, reminding us how wonderful it is simply to be alive!

On April Fool's Day, instead of playing tricks or practical jokes that embarrass, devise some comical or amusing surprises, such as turning the day backwards: eat pizza for breakfast, pancakes or waffles for dinner; watch a movie in the morning, take a walk late at night.  Whatever the routine, change it up for the day.

Go on a creative excursion, looking for decorative finds, both for inside and out.  Visit garage sales, flea markets, estate sales or farmers' markets.  This is the month many will be cleaning out and making changes, so you never know what treasures you will find.  Re-decorating can be both fun and inexpensive with a creative mind. 

Try a refreshing new scent for spring . . . .  rose water, lilac or lily of the valley are great this time of year.  Use air fresheners, candles, or oils to make a fresh aroma throughout the home.

With Easter weekend just days away, be sure to dye Easter eggs and become a kid again.  Eat jelly beans, chocolate rabbits and marshmallow bunnies.  Make an Easter basket for yourself!   Most importantly, be thankful for all your blessings, be gracious and kind to each other, and be in awe of a wondrous man who died to save us from our sins.
