Well, here we are my friends. It seems like a bad April Fool’s joke that we are all on lock-down with the CoronaVirus and the aftermath of terror that it has been striking in so many people’s lives. But the truth of the matter is clear. We are all quarantined in one way or another at this time in order to not spread the virus to others.
I hope this post finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe. We are doing well here although I do have to go to the food store at some point because we are running low on a few items. Trying to get delivery or pick up times for grocery items has been sold out so there’s no other option except to go myself. The last time I was in a store over a week ago, there were many empty aisles of shelving including for toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, bottled water and chicken or fresh meat. The fellow shoppers were stressed and it was not a pleasant experience. But today or tomorrow, I will go back to see what I can find. How is it near you?
In other news though, the flowers have been blooming and I see the happy yellow daffodils swaying in the breeze. Clover (the rabbit) has been out and about and does not hop away when she sees us anymore. She is content to continue nibbling on her favorite green clover in the yard without worry that we will bother her. Fatty the groundhog has been tamer as well. He’s been out moseying through the yard lately and seems to have lost some weight. The birds have been singing loudly too as well as the frogs at night. It’s very early to be hearing the frogs here. When I stepped out to bring the garbage out there was a little frog (the size of my thumb) on the door sill. He didn’t even bother to jump when I walked over him. Lucky for him, I saw him there and stepped over him so as not to disturb him.
I pray the new month of April will bring us all health and tranquility. Stay safe my friends. Reach out to friends and family. Enjoy the simplicity of these days as Mother Earth heals a bit. Stress and strain can wreak havoc on patience so try to stay calm. Count your blessings. Be kind. Keep shining your heartlights. in the darkness. Hope and love are key ingredients to healing.
Wow it’s a banner day with three ‘holidays’ on the same day! Woo Hoo! I awoke this morning and saw sweet Clover hopping by! I love how he arrived to greet me on this special day! By the way, I heard we are to have snow tomorrow. What a funny April Fool’s joke Mother Nature! I hope she’s kidding, but it’s not looking like a joke!
I hope that you have a beautiful day filled with love, peace, joy and togetherness with those whom you love! Enjoy every precious moment!
God Bless and Shine On!

Life is not a highway strewn with flowers, Still it holds a goodly share of bliss, When the sun gives way to April showers, Here is the point you should never miss.
Though April showers may come your way, They bring the flowers that bloom in May. So if it’s raining, have no regrets, Because it isn’t raining rain, you know, (It’s raining violets), And where you see clouds upon the hills, You soon will see crowds of daffodils, So keep on looking for a blue bird, And list’ning for his song, Whenever April showers come along.
