March 2016 Calendar printable8:00 AM
For most of us in India this means the Winter has left us and the heat is starting to claim us. Mumbai has been showing signs of Summer approaching all last week and I already woke up too often feeling sweaty.
Despite this, I am still trying to not use the AC at night. Mostly because I still live in complete denial and hope my resisting the urge will make our Winter temps stick around a little while longer.
If you live in colder climates and higher latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere you might be conjuring thoughts and vision of Spring at the moment. I don't blame you, I've live this reality once. But as you are now looking at your Summer dresses with longing and eagerness, I am finding myself bidding goodbye to my socks and long pants with a knot in my tummy. And, I swear my shorts and light weight tops are taunting me (I cleaned my wardrobe this weekend, they totally did).
March in Mumbai is that already hot, but not yet as humid as it will become and plants are still more or less green and blooming. Come April end and everything will look burnt, dry and a lot of trees will loose their leaves exposing us to the harsh sun even more.
This is why I chose to paint palm leaves and a beautiful frangipani flower to represent this month.
