A to Z Theme Reveal!

Last year, I participated in the A to Z Challenge for the first time.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easily it fit into my schedule.  (I think that planning ahead was definitely key!)  I wondered, though, if I would be able to participate this year.  I didn't have a theme idea, I was struggling to post much of anything on my blog, and I knew April was going to be busy.  
Blogging friends to the rescue!  Ivy, from Uncharted, gave me an idea for a theme that would definitely work for me.  I am nearing my 1000th post on my blog, and Ivy suggested republishing some of my earlier posts for the A to Z Challenge, thus celebrating my milestone and participating in the challenge at the same time.  

I looked at the labels I've given my last 995+ posts, and found that there are labels that start with every letter of the alphabet--except for "X". (I obviously didn't label last year's X post with "xylophone.")

I have a friend, who instead of serving her family "leftovers," serves them "buffet!"  Borrowing her terminology, my A to Z theme for 2016 will be "Blogging Buffet." It is all-you-can-read, and I do hope you'll stick around for all the offerings.  With a variety of topics, there's bound to be something that appeals to you, though.  And if not, you're always welcome to make yourself a PB&J!

  3. I can get behind the idea of a blog buffet, for sure - although it'll make me hungry. Reading makes me hungry, anyway. Look forward to what you're serving up! (Eli@CoachDaddy, #1267.)

    1. I often get hungry while reading blog posts, too! I promise the buffet will include lots of non-food posts. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. "Blogging Buffet" — love it. Great, great idea. (I totally might borrow it for a future April challenge ;) ) It's a fabulous way for people to get to know you, too — I, for one, will be taking full advantage of that... I'm so curious about your involvement with Guide Dogs. So... you'll be seeing a lot of me this April :)

    Thanks for coming by at Life In Dogs earlier, and for your lovely comment. Really made my day :)

  7. Very cool.... I always wish I could find a way to use more posts that I've written before cuz they feel like such a waste once they're gone past. You know like you'll never see them again? I like the buffet !

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
