stawberry festival

It very early in the morning, I can’t sleep so I’ve read for a couple of hours and now I am going to blog…I need to start working out so I can SLEEP! Hopefully I will not be too tired today to go for a long walk/jog…as soon as I am done here 4am is a little too early to be out on the streets in a new town.  So guess what we did on Saturday…we went to Srawberry Festival at the Hillsboro County Fairgrounds…The place was huge…it ran into the streets of Plant City Fl.  As soon as we arrived we had to have the strawberry shortcake…and i couldn’t wait to try a bunch of the “fair” food…well after the shortcake, Nick didn’t said he wasn’t hungry so there i sat with my tongue haning out wanting to try this and that, but when hubby is not hungry he is letting me down because I could be having a bite  or two of what he is having…so he totally rained on my strawberry festival fun as far as the food…so we walked and walked and saw everything….the contests, the bluegrass bands, the “cracker” village where a woman made rope,  the blacksmith made nails, the woman was braiding a wool rug…it was awesome!  We saw the cows…their were no pigs, chickens, and lambs so that was a little let down, but it was something to do… I am not the relaxing type…My sewing is done that I thought would take me my whole time down here…I’ve read : The girl who kicked the hornets nest.  the last book in the series of 3.  We saw the new Matt Damon movie and now this is the second night in a row that I am up!  We have to go to the expo center tomorrow early and finish setting up the booth, so that will be something to look forward to.  I just love to work and that is the plain truth.  I will have to find a kit in the booth to make so we have a second sample.  Wish I would have brought more of my new stuff that I really need to get ready for Spring Market…Well it is 5 am now…time to get up and burn off some energy…Here is a slide show of the strawberry festival… I would have loved to buy about 4 flats of them, they were only 8$ a flat!.  Mom would have loved making jelly and freezing these berries!  In Wisconsin we have to pick your own and it costs about $15 a flat….LB
