Our orange day in a sentence really stars!!

day-in-a-sentenceThank you to everyone who contributed this week. There were wonderful sentences and I just love tapping into the imaginations of a global cohort! The sentences covered all kinds of topics. So, here is what we had to say about our “star day in a sentence in orange”.
The American elections were uppermost on some minds.
Gail Desler   As the stars dim and the orange glow of a new day begins…change has come to America:-)

Special current events were on others’.

Teryl Magee   Today the Big Or ange (UT Football Team) will come out on top of Wyoming and send Fulmer out as the star that he is!

Paul Bogush   I followed my kids under the stars, trick or treating for 2 hours, planning on how to snatch the elusive rare orange packaged full sized Reeses Peanut Butter Cup from my daughter’s bag.

Anne Mirtschin Colours abounded at our school for ‘out of uniform day” on Tuesday, to celebrate our Melbourne Cup, the horse race that stops the nation of Australia. However, there was no orange to be seen, just many students looking like movie stars.

 The weather was another popular topic of conversation.

Sheryl McCoy    The stars disappeared this morning in a blaze of orange sunlight crossing the sky.

Sharon Harper  

Orange stars blister
Under molten sunlit rays
Summer has arrived
Amy   Falling from the sky and covering the ground, the orange stars confirm the upcoming appearance of winter.
Brrrr…. I’m not ready!

This gem from Lynn Jacobs  covered many topics…
After a week of gloomy, overcast skies without a single glimpse of a star, (Other than our new president-elect!) I am eager to notice that the mandarin oranges are once again for sale at the roadside trucks.

Then, I just loved the humour of some.
Matthew Needleman    Orange you glad it’s been a week of stars and change!
Angie  I was going to start my sentence with ‘orange you going to write’ but someone already stole that idea so give him the gold star!

Education is still alive and well…..

James   Helping students remember the Canadians who liberated the Dutch House of Orange in WWII, allowing Hollanders to see the stars in freedom, again.
Sciencebase     Quite coincidentally, I was hoping to reconsider my “Click an Orange” campaign to raise awareness of RSS this week, thanks for the reminder, you’re a star!

…except for

Cyndi Danner-Kuhn  who must be justifiably disappointed.
Thought I would be a “star” this morning for an iWeb faculty workshop in the College of Education, but no “star” today, no one showed up to learn!”
Health has been an issue for others

Amy Kenyon    Morning after “seeing stars” when my dream for the country came true, I was driving to school in the “orange glow” of sunrise.  I got a call that my step-daughter (a freshman at SUNY Buffalo) was being taken to the ER by ambulance!  Fortunately, it was only gallstones (and not something worse) but it was a stress-ball sandwich after a night of little sleep.  Today is Saturday and I’ve finally recuperated.
From our very own host, Kevin
If you were to peel back my brain like an orange, at the center would be a star of pain that has come with a lingering flu which has kept me home for a few days. Blah!
(Sorry this is so negative, but that’s how I feel right now)
Note ..Hope you are feeling better now Kevin and to Amy, hope your daughter is recovering.

The imaginative….

Sheryl McCoy     When I saw this challenge, the question popped in my head. “Why don’t we see/use more orange sticker stars?”

Pearls of wisdom..
Ken Allan   

In Cyberspace went Candid Ken
A cultured pleasure star to see:
Where Knol, the learned river, ran
Through postings fathomless to scan
Into an orange sea.
Sara   The ground beneath my feet shifted last night -the stars shine brighter, oranges taste sweeter, my sleep smoother – my god but a new day has dawned!

Lynne Culp
What a day it was—stars and oranges collide in my brain and my euphoria dims somewhat as I realize that my colleague’s son was right: “in California, we care more about chickens than gays.”

Cynthiaq Calvert
My favorite part of early morning, after the first sip of coffee, of course, is seeing the last star fade as the orange rays of the sun begin to peek over the horizon.

Sheri  At the Pow Wow, under the blue-white lights and skimming across the wooden gym floor to the steady beat of the White Hawk drum, the grass dancer’s orange and white yarn strings flowed fluidly with his mindful moves, like the grass of the prairie- waves in the wind beneath the endless stars.

Elaine  When we celebrate Harmony Day by wearing orange , we are all stars in our collective effort to bring peace and understanding to our own part of the world.

Bonnie I’ve been living with stars in my eyes and the sun rose on a new day Wednesday bright orange.

 Thank you one and all, and thank you Kevin for allowing me to be a host. Now, over to you!
