Writing, Writing Prompts

The Container Store is Hiring! SoCS for 09-26-20

According to Linda G Hill, these are your instructions for today’s SoCS prompt, thank you, Linda!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “container.” Use the word “container” any way you’d like. Or think about a container of some kind and write about it. Enjoy!

So Dave and I were out running our Saturday errands, grabbing a bite and then heading home when I spotted a sign that announced the Container Store Distribution center is hiring and the starting pay is $17 per hour! Well, I immediately sent the news to my middle son, Josh, who is in between jobs again. Let’s hope he checks it out! Yes, it is in Grand Prairie, but that is not too far. It is about a 20 minute drive from my house.

I had asked Dave yesterday if we could go and get some things to set on the porch for a little display I decided to put up. I’m terrible at this decorating stuff by the way, but I had been looking through a magazine and was inspired to do a little something. My wheels began to turn and I remembered that I had an extra table, an old timey lantern, rusted from being outside, and asked him to purchase a mum and a few small pumpkins.

It may look lame to all the wonderful decorators out there, but to me, it looks better than the bare porch that was there before. I’m sure before its all over, one of my well-meaning neighbors or sisters-in-law will direct me on how to make it look better, lol. Or, I may move things around until I get it where I like it, but at least this is a start. So I have a mum in a container, a small pumpkin, and a few decorative gourds. I may bring a couple of those in and put them on my mantel.
