April Fools Day

A is for April and apples and ants
A is for blogging and rhyming and camps
A doesn't start the words right above...screech.... that doesn't even make sense
A is the start of the A to Z blogging challenge where all blogs must start with the letter of the day.
today is April the first and of course the first letter today is A

Okay so I am also doing a lot of other things this month. Hang on while I find A list...

  14. Cecelia--Your energy is amazing! Hope you survive the month :) I'll be reading your posts to see if you dissolve in a puddle of goo before it's over--but I suspect you will not only survive, but (no, I'm not going to say 'thrive', I'm really not) enlighten your readers and expand your horizons. Happy A-Zing.
