Day 30 – March SOL


Today is Day 30 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
The theme for today from the photo challenge I am using for inspiration is “Apple”.

As I thought about the prompt for today, I couldn’t help think of some quotes:

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

You’re the apple of my eye.

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

And even – An apple for the teacher.

I collect a number of different things – birds, heart boxes, angels, elephants. I also collect apples – perfect really for a teacher. I didn’t think I had that many until I started looking. I have more than in the photo and there are also some apple shaped dishes, which I use in the fall.

One in particular sits in our china cabinet and is a definite keepsake. It is red glass apple, quite heavy, that was presented to me by my union when I retired. (it is the middle of the photo, to the right). It reminds me of all those years of teaching and my love for my profession.

Keepsakes have a power to remind of us of special people, special events, special places. Our china cabinet is definitely that – full of gifts, memories and precious to us objects.

  1. Isn’t it funny how you don’t know how many of something you have until you start gathering and counting? I have a nice crystal apple that I received from our education association when I retired. I nice reminder of the 38 years I spent at Upper Dauphin Area Middle School.

  2. I hold on to many things too. I tend to collect notes- birthday cards, anything I’ve gotten in the mail…little moments in time to look back on later. Thanks so much for sharing.
