It's March first, time again for Calendar Tuesday, which only happens on the first Tuesday of each month.
Let's begin with my Country Home Ideas calendar:
a lovely front porch entrance, nothing like mine, that's for sure!
a close-up of the pot and a couple of really nice lamps.
Next, the Violent Veg page for March:
"That dodgy sat-nav has got us into a right pickle"
(the pickle looks more like chutney to me, but let's not quibble about it).
Now the one you've all been waiting for; the Suzy Toronto page for March.
Here's what she has to say:
"BECOMING AN ADULT IS THE DUMBEST THING I EVER DID
Like most young people, I couldn't wait to come of age, become free to make my own choices and decisions about my life, and be a real, certified grownup.
I wanted, wished, and waited with anticipation for my birthday,
so I could declare to the world I was officially an adult.
But you know what? Becoming an adult is the dumbest thing I ever did.
Now I wonder why I was in such a hurry.
Why did I think being responsible for everyone and everything in the known universe was something I needed to do?
Why did I think that leaving behind the carefree days of my youth in exchange for having to act like an adult was going to be so fabulous?
I know that growing old is mandatory
but growing up is not...in fact
I think it's a trap to be avoided at all costs!
After giving it a lot of thought, I've decided that
being an adult is just not working for me.
But maybe, just maybe, it's not too late!
Here's my plan. From now on I'm going to stop
ignoring my inner child and embrace all things "kid."
I'm going to live, love, and play with the vibrant
passion, spunk, spontaneity we all once had.
So be warned - the kid in me is coming out!
And if you feel the urge to give me milk and cookies,
wipe my face, and put me down for a nap, go ahead.
'Cause when it comes to childhood, I'm hitting
the do-over button! Wanna play?
and now a few pictures now from the March numbers page:
delightful daffodils for the first day of Northern hemisphere Spring
a pot of gold and some lucky clover leafs for St Patrick's Day
a chicken in the top banner
a bunny-eared Easter Egg for Easter Sunday; the 27th this year.
On the text page,
a chicken and a pair of bunny ears in her hair.
