We are just marching thru 2013. Pun intended
I remember when I lived in New Jersey; by this time of year I am looking to go somewhere warm and sunny. My eyes always turned south.
Now that I live here, it is a different story.
Since about October we have had Snow Birds, of course we get the usual tourist all year long.
A week ago the Pitchers and Catchers showed up for Spring Training, and then the rest started to show up. Now we have Baseball fans here.
We have within a 2 hour drive 8 MLB Baseball teams. Within 15 minutes, are the Yankees, Phillies and the Blue Jays.
Soon it will be time for Spring Break, so add college kids to this mess and you see us all praying for Easter. That is when everyone leaves.
March is also this year has 2 holidays, St Patrick’s Day and Easter. Yes Easter is early this year. I always looked forward to St. Pat’s Day, as my Mom would make this candy called Irish potatoes. No potatoes but lots of sugar and cinnamon.
Oh I almost forgot, our Strawberry Festival is starting in Plant City. It has strawberries made in every item imaginable. strawberry short cake, sliced strawberries and strawberry pie, just to name a few. Lots of big names in Country singers will be performing also.
I decided to make the tote with Peaches and Cream Sunflower with Emerald green sides, Cream handles and gold trim. The pocket is Christmas green with gold lettering all Aunt Lydia thread. I thought sun flower was appropriate for March, as it brings forth visions of Spring.
So Tote #84 has been called Spring Break, which is what we are soon to be in the middle of.
