April is a rainy month, at least we thought so this last Easter weekend. Since the always (too?) cautious google weather report was forecasting rain for the weekend, we temporary cancelled a hiking to a rural area near Barcelona changing it for a city plan but I was happy thinking that my new cheerful yellow raincoat was going to be handy.
As it sometimes happens the day rose as bright and shinny as could be, but still I insisted on wearing my new light coat because when raincoats are cute I think they are like any other spring jacket (same with rain boots). However it might not be a general opinion as I heard many people passing by and whispering: “how odd! it is definitely not raining today!”. Maybe my sailor outfit was putting me in the best of behaviors but I was literally dancing around in my yellow raincoat and couldn’t care less about whisperings, weather, cancelled hikes, rain or sun. The day also included a visit to an exhibition about the artwork of Pixar (with Mary Blair in my mind all the time); I think the high spirits had also a lot to do with Remy, Nemo, Sullivan, Buzz Lightyear and all the gang.
Oh! and you know what? It finally even rained at the end of the day, ha!
Do you like raincoats? Do you prefer to wear them only when it is raining? I love how colorful they usually are, which color is your favorite? Mine would be a tie between yellow and red!
p.s: The same proverb from the title in Spanish would be “Abril aguas mil” I guess this means that April being rainy is an international affair ;)
