I Signed Up!

Even though it seems like I have been blogging forever, I'm not exactly cutting-edge when it comes to some blogging-related events.  However, after weeks of hemming and hawing, I've decided to commit to participating in the A to Z Challenge.  

It took me a while to come up with a theme, but then the a-ha moment came.  I will be compiling the A to Z of Thankful Me, an alphabet book I can give to my grandchildren.  (By the way, grandchild #3 is on the way!)  The words I choose to highlight will hopefully give them a glimpse of who I am.  It's not quite on the level of the best Christmas present Christine ever gave, but I suppose I could always try again next year, too.  Maybe.  We'll see how this year goes.  

Are you participating in the A to Z Challenge?  Are you a new participant, or an old pro?

  6. hey! blog-challenge-mates! Thanks for mentioning the 'reveal' thing... I'd thought about it, but kept coming up against... 'yeah, like anyone is going to be surprised' about my own theme. lol
    I have started pre-picking words, but am trying to not get to much into that... trusting that if I treat it like any other post, then things will be as they should.

  8. Congrats on grandbaby nr. 3!!
    I'm looking forward on your Challenge-blogs. I'm not much of a challenge-type-of-blogger and probably couldn't make it through a whole month of consistant blogging..... I don't even know in which category my blog would fall.... Have a good friday and weekend. How's John doing on the car by the way?! Would love to see the progress he is making with it. (Yep, I'm a car-loving-kind-of-girl...) xxx

    1. I didn't even pick a category (it was optional). My posts will be super short, because really, who wants a novel-sized ABC book? I have the words all written (with the exception of the weekly Ten Things of Thankful that I will add to Saturday posts); I'm just finding photos now to accompany the posts.

      As for the car. . . John hasn't had as much free time as he did when we first got the car, so the progress has been minimal. The nice thing is, it's not going anywhere, so it will be there when he doesn't have so many commitments! :-)
