There are things I do that are specific to the month. April will have me putting out flower boxes and baskets. I won't put them out until after the last frost date. But I want everything ready for that time. But the beginning of the month is when I plan to do certain household chores. I'm likely to do them at other times, too, but the early part of the month keeps me on some type of schedule so things don't get too bad. So today wasn't much fun, but I did get a lot done.
