Gradually becoming accustomed to the open windows and warm days, I'm wondering what I'll do next week when it cools off and I have to keep the windows closed all day again. The positive side of the trade off is that I won't be getting dosed with pollen then, but I'm sure I'll still miss the fresh air.

I'm looking forward to the time when I'll be able to leave the windows open at night, though. That is likely to arrive sometime in April. Perhaps it will arrive concurrently with the first jasmine, or maybe the gardenias. Maybe there will be warm nights, fragrant air, and frogs and crickets singing all at once. If next week's rain is sufficient it should keep the frogs going a bit longer, and the jasmine and gardenias have sometimes bloomed as early as April, so it might happen.

It's hard to believe that April is almost here, though. Sunday is Easter Fools Day! The dual holiday doesn't happen very often. It's an excuse to put decorated but raw eggs out for the egg hunters. Easter Fool! I believe that's what Jesus said to the Roman guards when he popped out of his cave. Then he ascended into heaven on the back of a giant, white bunny, flinging handfulls of jelly beans to the adoring crowds below!

I've always loved that story.
