at least it is mostly rain.
Occasionally, there is a flake or two of something else.
But, if you’ve been A Sparrow Home reader for a while, you may have noticed that we do not mention the S**W word in April.
In March s**w is welcomed as poor man’s fertilizer.
But in April I am totally oblivious to any kind of white activity that may be going on outside my window. I do not acknowledge it. It is a mere blip on the weather radar screen.
Meanwhile, inside, it is a perfect day for a little bit of spring cleaning. I am emptying the bench that stores the mitts, hats and scarves. They are joining the winter boots down in the basement.
Because – hello – the daffodils are blooming and it is SPRING.
I am doing a bit of baking along with the spring cleaning. Nannie’s Boiled Raisin Cake is simmering on the stove. The house is filled with the spicy aroma of raisins, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger.
Especially if you happen to look out the window.
