This morning’s raindrops wreaked havoc with my walk – half of it anyway. I guess I’ll take the glass half-full approach and say that half of a walk is better than no walk at all. Anyway, I didn’t stray far from the ranch so I wouldn’t get soaking wet. Since I took a different route today I went down a street with a sidewalk full of children’s chalk scribbles. I stopped to admire the many funky-looking flowers in polka-dotted flower pots, colorful Easter eggs, the greeting “Happy Easter” and even a few hopscotch squares as well. Too bad this week’s on-again/off-again rains have hampered the efforts of these budding sidewalk artists who no doubt were anxious to get creative with their pastel chalks they received in their Easter baskets. Today’s wash out will no doubt obliterate any remaining scribbles and scrawls on the neighborhood sidewalks. It’s been a rather cold and rainy week for kids who were off school on Easter break and I’m sure the weather left alot of moms groaning and gritting their teeth as well. Stay dry and enjoy the weekend as it promises to be rain-free which is more than can be said for the upcoming week. The April showers will linger into May and leave us scratching our heads when we might expect those May flowers?
