Flower seed wedding favors have been all of the rage as of lately. I’ve been to 3 weddings in the past year, and all of the brides and grooms gave out these favors to their guests. I’m actually thinking about getting a green thumb because of these favors. They’re pretty easy to grow, so even if you have a habit of ruining plants, you can still grow these without failure. If this trend keeps on going the way that it is now, I’m going to run out of room on my window for these plants.
I don’t have any plans to get married at the moment, but one of my close friends is going to get married in the near future. They’ve been making small plans for their wedding here and there, and they’re going to have to start thinking about favors soon. Continue reading The Popularity of Seed Favors
When my parents moved to a small town, they knew they would have no trouble in life because my dad was a plant foreman and did an excellent job at it. The biggest company in town was a food plant and they had hired him to work there. Dad was really into his work, and he loved what he did for a living. He would come home at night and talk about the velocity transducer that he had used that day or some other sort of equipment that seemed so worldly to me. Mom would beam at him because she was happy when he was happy. I have a good family, and life at home has always been great.
When I grew older, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do in life. I had worked at the plant some when I got right out of high school. I worked in their main office upstairs. But I really wanted to become a teacher. So, I stayed there working in the office after I graduated, but my plan was to also go to college. Mom let me borrow her car every day, and I would go to the plant to work during the day, and then I would drive to the community college in the next town over in order to take night classes. It was there that I got my associate degree. Soon after, I applied to a university in our state and that is where I got my teaching degree.
Good teachers are badly needed in our little town. So, after graduation, I decided to come home to each in the elementary school. I have been doing it for 7 years now, and I adore it. I love my students and I love all of their families. I gives me great joy to help these kids get a good start in life. I will be here until I retire.
Of course fifteen years ago when I started out very few people had mobile phones and I got on pretty well without one. In fact I can remember when no one except drug dealers and millionaires could afford to have a mobile phone. Now I am completely reliant on my smart phone and it was a catastrophe when I cracked the screen on my phone while traveling on business. I had to figure out how to find someone who does iphone repair in Richmond, which would have been a simple task if I had had my phone. Instead I found a public library and went in there to quickly use the internet on a public computer. I had to send out a couple of emails too, which frightened me pretty much.
