Living in a small town can seem to be all but exciting, but as I find it, it can be just as good as living in some big city. My small town of choice is Mountain View, Missouri; population 2,843. Some things my grandmother and aunt have taught me I will now tell you
First, I would suggest if you live near a farm, enjoy. Build a bird house. You most likely live in a small open area where wildlife is abundant. A multilevel birdhouse would make things enjoyable when sitting outside or doing yard work. It doesnt matter if your in the city or on a farm, birds are everywhere and they would love the hospitality of a new home.
Secondly, try making a garden. Whether it be in your front yard under a window sill or in a huge garden patch outback. Pick flowers that may attract butterflies and small colorful birds. Flowers with strong scents and eyepopping color is sure to spruce up any dull moment.
If you know everyone, or close to everyone in your town gather them all together for a big picnic. Make homemade potato salad and set up an arts and crafts table for the kids. Have the kids help make and paint bird houses even.
Now if you live in a small town with farmlands, this might just work for you. Even if you don’t, who knows it could very well help you too. Every Sunday morning, gather some other people and go tot he local park for a farmers market. Make homemade pies and jams, gather vegitables, make cookies, cards, birdhouses, t-shirts anything really. Just have fun with it. Give it your own town’s touch.
