Monthly Wrap-up: April 2020

Another month has gone by and we are still social distancing. We had a very quiet and sparse Easter this year. It was the first holiday we spent at home. Instead of turkey, I did a small roast for the three of us.The Easter Bunny left some treats and an egg hunt for my son Charlie. April is also the month in which my family has many birthdays to celebrate; both my parents, my niece and several cousins. Charlie celebrated his birthday in April too. My little guy is now 3 years old!

I didn’t feel as motivated to read this past month, as I did in March. I read my first ever graphic novel, which I borrowed from my local library in eBook format. I also read a short story. Both of these I have included in my monthly total.

  1. I like the variety of genres you chose to read in April. Celebrating is just not the same. For Easter I watched a service on my phone and the music was so uplifting, but just not like being there obviously. And now it’s already Memorial Day weekend and I’m missing out on playing with my band in the parade. I hope your May is going as well as possible.


      1. Thank you! I got out my parade music and performed it for my neighbors–I got applause! I cried through The Star Spangled Banner and almost couldn’t finish.
