Hi! Happy Sunday and Happy Easter for all who celebrate!  April is upon us and with April showers bring May flowers so let it rain.  April is also Stress Awareness Month, National Humor month, and National Card and Letter Writing Month. So send a funny card or send a humorous caring letter to someone this month and make their day, week, or year. 

As we all know, Easter Sunday is always followed by Dyngus day in Poland on Monday so have fun and follow it up with Tuesday's Children's book day, then Wednesday's National Walking day and explore somewhere new. Follow it up with Thursday's Walk around Things day since you're probably lost by now. Then Friday's Read a Road Map day which is necessary when traveling with your hubby.  After our last road trip, I purchased National Geographics Adventure Edition U.S Atlas, a paper map of the United States California, and Arizona.  Eventually we'll buy a map of all the individual states in the U.S. because hubby doesn't trust electronic maps. They like to send you weird places. 

And why is it when I look up Non Sequitur on the Internet, I found The Non Sequitur Survival Guide for the Nineties but no other decade?   What happened in the nineties?  I guess we all lost logic and reason in the 90's.  Something to think about. 

And our April author  and book of the month is Bonnie Garmus and her debut novel Lessons in Chemistry." 

"Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing as an average woman. But it’s the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute takes a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans; the lonely, brilliant, Nobel–prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with—of all things—her mind. True chemistry results.

But like science, life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later Elizabeth Zott finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America’s most beloved cooking show Supper at Six. Elizabeth’s unusual approach to cooking (“combine one tablespoon acetic acid with a pinch of sodium chloride”) proves revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn’t just teaching women to cook. She’s daring them to change the status quo."

It's different, it's maddening, it's unusual, it's heart wrenching, it's all the feels. Proceed with caution. 

Big N, little N, what begins with N: Nudge, nurture, noteworthy, and nuance. 

Nanu nanu!!!
