Administrative Assistant's Day and Green Thumbs


Wednesday was not only Earth Day, but also Administrative Assistants' Day. I don't know why both were designated for the same day. Somehow it doesn't seem right. After all, we have 365 days in the year, more than enough to go around.

Anyway, I whipped out my Iphone and took a photo of the flowers I got from the bosses at the firm on Wednesday. Actually, in the foreground are the flowers from this year, and I'm proud to say, in the background's a plant I got for Secretary's Day, as it was called then, at least 10-12 years ago. I don't have a green thumb, but somehow this plant has survived despite being owned by me.

What about you? Do you have a green thumb? Do you have a job that's celebrated each year? Or, would you rather not celebrate your job? Please share.

  1. I have a VERY green thumb - love to garden and grow my own organic vegetables. I'm a full time writer so no job celebrations - except whenever a new book get released. :)

  2. Did you post the picture? It didn't show up on my computer.

    Nope, no flowers for me. I work for myself out of my home office, so I'd have to send them to me. Hmm. That's an idea.

  3. I'm a writer. I work from home. I only really celebrate when I have Kaydence, my granddaughter.

    Green thumb? We've killed plastic plants, literally.

  4. I'm with Marvin...the thumb can't get any greener! Love plants. My daughter told me house plants were so 70s so I'm trying to cut back a little...they're taken over the living room. But they're my babies.

  5. I love flowers and gardening, just don't have the time. Some day I hope to be able to get into it like I would like to. As far as job celebration, I am a stay at home mom, so Mother's Day is about it, lol! Every day is gratifying though.

  6. I had a green thumb but it's faded now. I reached a point where I decided I didn't want anything more in my home that I had to water, feed or dust! I, too, work from home so I guess Mother's Day would be my once a year 'job' celebration!

  7. The last thing I have is a "green" thumb -more like a black one, I'd say. Although, last year, as a bit of an experiment, I planted tomatoes, green peppers and jalapeno peppers in what had been an old, old flower bed alongside my house, just to see if any of them might survive and actually produce anything under my care. There were way too many plants in that small a space for openers, but surprisingly enough, several of the tomato plants grew, blossumed and I think we got about 2 dozen tomatoes. The green peppers budded and got some wee tiny peppers but something else apparently liked those things as they disappeared about as quickly as the had appeared. We did get maybe a dozen jalapeno peppers though we would have gotten more of them if my granddaughter would have left them grow. Apparently she was quite fascinated with those little peppers just starting to grow. Maybe this year I'll try again but will plant them better -not so many as to choke the other plants out, ya know.

  8. Green thumb? Most of the plants in our house are plastic for a reason...

    And I spoke at two Admin. Prof. Luncheons this week. Both were simply wonderful and such a nice treat for the ladies. (And men!)

  9. Very green thumb. No job so no celebration. Wouldn't want there to be a day celebrating all the non-workers. (Maybe a 'yay I'm retired day' would be cool.)

  10. No job that's celebrated each year, but I have a pale green thumb. It used to be totally brown and I actually killed a cactus because I hadn't watered it in so long; but being a homeowner and investing in a few books has given me a tiny bit of a green thumb. I'll never be Paul James or Martha Stewart, but I get by.

  11. Morgan,
    I do have a green thumb-except for Orchids-they never survive. I received a beautiful plant from a friend-guarantted to survive all sorts of abuse-at my hands it didn't
