What “springs” to mind when we think of April (besides, of course, that it’s National Adopt-a-Ferret Month?! Instead, let’s go with “April showers” – sprinkling tidbits of all-things April, ushering in the month by highlighting special days, sharing a few wonderful quotes, and suggesting fun events to enjoy. A lovely April to all!
April 1: April Fool’s Day and National Walking Day.
Don’t be a fool! Put on your walking shoes and take a stroll through nature today. And if today doesn’t work for you, you can always join the Sterling Walkers on Fridays at 11am to enjoy some fresh air!
April 2: International Children’s Book Day and National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day.
Cat in the Hat? Where the Wild Things Are? The Little Prince? Gather a few friends and reminisce about your most beloved books as a kid – or that you read to your kids and grandkids. And what could go better with childhood memories than a P & J sandwich!
April 7: Full Pink Moon.
This will be the closest – and thereby the largest – supermoon of the year. Make sure to go outside tonight, take a look up at that bright lunar orb in the sky, and enjoy what’s sure to a be a beautiful evening.
April 9: Happy Birthday, Winston Churchill!
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

Whether it’s sitting out in the lovely courtyard here at Sterling Court or going for a walk in one the many gorgeous parks here on the Peninsula, be sure to treat yourself to some fresh air and spend some quality time with this beautiful, precious planet of ours.
April 23: Shakespeare’s birthday.
Happy 456th, William! Get thee to the library – or Google – and celebrate this brilliant scribe by reciting a sonnet or two!
