An Ice Cream Adventure

“Here’s your ice cream.  Eat it outside.”

Meggie takes the cone.

She wanders into the backyard garden filled with lavender,

butterflies and hydrangeas.

Hummingbirds zigzag.

Ice cream starts dripping.

A bumblebee chases her.

Safe!

Meggie should eat the

melting ice cream.

Then she sees a chipmunk.

A new adventure begins.

This is a story I wrote earlier this year where the limit was 50 words. Although it’s about Meggie it’s definitely fiction – she would never let her ice cream melt!

Something about Doors

Meggie first became interested in doors after she read the Chronicles of Narnia series. After reading about the connection between doors and adventures, she began to wonder what might happen if she went through a mysterious (or even ordinary looking) door. Could she simply walk into another world? This was quite an intriguing possibility and she started thinking about doors differently. Her interest became more pronounced when she started to travel. There were fascinating doors everywhere!

Some of Meggie’s favorite doors have smaller people-sized doors inside of impressively large ones.

Some doors open up to potentially unsafe landings if you walk through them.

Which door to take? She still imagines that an exciting adventure might begin when she walks through…
