Happy St. Patrick’s day my radiant sunshines!

Okay, last weekend I realized that St. Patrick’s Day was right around the corner and I was struck with inspiration for a cute short story all around the color green. I’ve shared it with some little ones who have absolutely loved it. I’ve also started a few sketches for the illustrations, which I’m happy to give a sneak peek of.


They say if you eat too much, you’ll dream strange things. Well, last night I think I ate too many things that were green!

You see, as I laid curled up nice and snug beneath the covers, I had green things dancing in my head.

First, I dreamed that my bed turned into an old Volkswagen bus roaming through green winding hills.

Then, into an emerald green spaceship taking me to the moon where I met and talked with Sprocket the space cat.

Next, I began my descent from the moon. I said goodbye to Sprocket as I traded him my spaceship for his hot air balloon.

Coming back to earth, flying high through the sky I saw many strange things. Whatever did I see, you ask?

It all started when I was sailing over the jungle, I swear I saw a giant green gorilla eating plantains!

Crossing over the Blue Lagoon I saw a turtle wearing goggles doing backstrokes.

Then, as I neared my house, I saw a crocodile wearing a Tootoo dancing down my street!

Finally, safe back in my own room, I thought it was all over, that’s when I saw a chameleon looking at me!

I opened my eyes wide and said, “today I’m only eating things that are red!”

Okay, granted this story could be a future children’s storybook or book series. It’s still got a long road before all the I’ll be complete. It was a fun and interesting adventure outside my usual writing preferences. I invite any and all feedback and thoughts my radiant lights love to shine upon this project.

Here’s to a week filled with many colors to bring happiness and adventure to each and every day! ❤️

    1. Hehe…I read it to three of my kindergarten classes (very animated of course) and they enjoyed it. I also turned the first 2 sketches into coloring sheets for them to color, which they loved. I could definitely see you reading this to your grandaughter and bringing the story to life! 🙂

  1. I think this will turn into a fine children’s story! I can see myself reading this to my kids I tutor. Enjoying the sketch work. For some reason I was thinking of Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss, but it’s probably because I am hungry! 😀

    1. Lol Awww please feel free to share the story!😊 ❤️ I’m so happy you enjoyed it….and understandable Dr. Seuss is awesome!😁
