April's A to Z Challenge: A is for April Showers

April 1, 2019

Welcome to April, everyone! It's been 5 years since the last time I did the A to Z Challenge and I thought I'd try again. Why? Well, I've been wanting to find more blogs to interact with and comment on that will comment back and I think this is a great way to do it. Also, this may inspire a more personal element to my blog then I've been having lately. And if you want to join in, check out the post here.

I feel like I am cheating a bit with the letter A a bit, but given that it's the first day of April, I thought I'd focus on one of my favorite aspects of April - April showers! I love the rain and with that, I have a rainy day playlist that you'll want to listen to if it's raining. You can list below or click here to listen on YouTube.

There are 31 songs, so hopefully, you like this list!

What is your favorite rainy day song?


  1. Hi Nicole, I live in the southeast where it rains a lot all year long so April doesn't seem any wetter than other months. The first song that popped in my head was, Rainy Days and Mondays by the Carpenters. It literally started playing in my head as I was reading your post.

    I love music and I'll check out your playlist when I'm in a place I can listen. Happy A to Z!

  2. Well Nicole, living in Malaysia on the equator, I have developed a love for the rain as well!

    I am not sure if this will transform into a nice clickable link; if it doesn’t, just copy and paste it into your browser. (Sorry, not using the laptop):


    1. Thanks for stopping by! You must get a lot of rain :)

  3. The first song that comes to mind for me is I Can't Stand The Rain as performed by the Commitments.

  4. I used to live in Cape Town, a thousand miles away in Johannesburg now. Anyway I would work up here and then take a flight back to Cape town every couple of months or so. On one occasion someone said, when I had told her how excited I was about going home, Said, "But it's raining down there and cold, you're going to miserable.
    Well Cape Town is absolutely beautiful after the rains, all the flowers start blooming and everything sparkles like a jewelers shop window.
    Loved your post. just stopping by to say Hi.
    I'm writing about the African Animals for this challenge.
    Blessings, Geo..

  5. So far this year we've had more rain than normal. No rain so far in April, but some possible rain is predicted for this week-end. In Los Angeles I always welcome rain. Without it they expect us to ration water and I'm not a fan of that.

    Welcome back to A to Z!

  6. AH! I love that you have YouTube playlists for things. I often make YouTube playlists for friends as a way to show how much I appreciate them. Great stuff!
