I am retired and miss all the parting that went along with this time of year. I missed all the goodies that were brought in by other teachers. I miss making pumpkin pie with my class. Teaching 6 year old about Thanksgiving always include popcorn and pumpkin pie.
The other teachers and myself would have a pot luck at lunch time with all sorts of goodies. We would have the usual things, turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberries sauce,rolls, sweet potatoes and of course green bean casserole.
We had teachers from other counties who would add their touches to the party. Such things as egg rolls, sushi, fried rice, and things I had no idea what they were called but boy were they good.
Now don't forget that dessert table. with pumpkin pie, loaf and cake, pecan pie, apple pie and chocolate cake. There were so many other things but I am getting a tummy ache just thinking of them.
I miss parties like that now that I am retired. My days are filled with talking to my Spark team mates, reading articles, doing exercise videos, looking up new recipes to try and of course giving support to my many Spark friends.
So today feeling that I needed a party too I went to the store and got a small vegetable tray and a sparkling water. I am sitting in my home office having my owen party and you are all invited. Spark on!!!
