Colour your “Day in a Sentence” released

Many colours were represented in this week’s “Day in a Sentence”, including multicolours. The most popular colours were  red and yellow. The sentences showed a wonderful variety of emotions, experiences and events. The two different hemispheres were contrasted with the differences in climate being featured. From the “Land Down Under”, I wish to thank Bonnie Kaplan for allowing me to be host for the week and to thank you one and all for sharing your many coloured days! Enjoy the sentences! If it was your first time for Day in a Sentence this is a great weekly challenge so please continue to get involved.
