Melinda Sanders replied to Tiffany Noth's discussion How do you react when someone takes credit for something you did?
"Very, very frustrating and so unfair.  I would be steaming if I were you.  The best punishment for the stealer is that they have to live with themselves every day knowing they took credit for someone else's work.  That cannot be…"

Fainting over Ice Cream

I'm spending time each week recounting childhood memories in my posts.  This particular memory involved fainting and my favorite flavors of ice cream........When I was about 9 years old, I fainted at the local Thrifty store.I had just finished my softball practice in the blistering summer sun, and my Mom took me to our local Thrifty store, so that I could grab a cone of double chocolate malted crunch and pistachio ice cream.…See More

Melinda Sanders replied to Kimberly Bradley's discussion What Is Your Favorite Children's Book?
"I love James and the Giant Peach too!! I always thought it was so magical, and I must have read it 10 times at least when I was little.  Thanks for reminding me of this book - my 8 year old would love this one."

The Breezy Park Morning

I am sitting on a redwood bench in a local park on a perfectly sunny day.The bench is painted a chocolate brown color.The large screws that hold the seat to the base are painted over with the brown paint as well.  This must be an older bench.  It appears to be on its third coat of paint at least.  It is secured to the cement ground by large steel legs.In front of my bench is a large expanse of beautiful, perfectly manicured green grass.  The shadows from the surrounding trees are all moving…See More

Bamboo? That is a great idea - so creative! The fact that you have drawings vs. photos really makes your blog stand out.  I can tell from your writing that you are a very creative and expressive person.  I love that you provided the info about James Patterson's 'Read Kiddo Read' website .  I am a literacy teacher and am always looking for more resources to pass along!

Thank you so much Melinda!  I am so happy to hear that message resonated with you!  I am dying to know about your pictures.  Are you the artist?

Hi Melinda! It looks like we have a lot in common.  I take my iphone or ipad into the washroom to write in peace because I, too, find it therapeutic!  I started my blog in May 2012 and have two kids (11 and 14).  I'm guessing you are an artist?  I come from a family of artists.  I'm heading over to your blog to check it out!

 

Take care,

Ida Mae
