It’s Thursday – it is also the second day of April, which is somewhat exciting, right?

Sadly, today will be an indoor day due to the rain, but we must ALL stay indoors as much as possible to continue to stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Let’s brighten the day (and everyone’s mood) with a brand new ‘Daily Noontime’ – have a wonderful day, everyone!
