A Writer’s Playground–a place to find wordplay, writing prompts, reasons to celebrate, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart “S is for Sock, Squirrel, and Sanctuary” by Linda Martin Andersen
This month I’m sharing photos and blog posts from A-Z. I’m excited about trying something new. I hope you’ll stop by often throughout the month.
Check out the participants for the April (2016) Challenge. There are plenty to choose from http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/
S is for Sock
Have you ever blamed the dryer for eating a sock? Next time, check the sheets. I believe they have a craving for socks. I’ve also discovered that t-shirts stash away socks, perhaps for late night nibbling. Poor dryer, always blamed and perhaps never actually gets a bite.
I enjoyed creating a name for this photo. Write a caption of your own or tell a sock story you especially like.
S is for Squirrel
Diane Weiden shares a delightful and informative post about squirrels here:
When my husband and I lived in an apartment in Durham, NC, we were given a bird feeder. We hung it from our small screened-in porch. A squirrel hopped from a tree to the porch roof and then onto our hanger. See below:
What squirrel stories do you have to share? Most of us probably have dozens!
S is for Sanctuary
Even before I learned of bird sanctuaries, I worshipped in our church sanctuary. From movies, I knew that sometimes people sought sanctuary in a church. In recent years, Fayetteville posted this sign downtown. I hope the soldiers stationed here feel that Fayetteville is a sanctuary for them. I will say we know some who chose to retire here. What comes to mind when you hear sanctuary?
What “S” words come to mind for you? I hope you’ll share why they’re special to you.
