A to Z's of Me


Big thanks to Jenny Matlock for bringing so many interesting people together for her Alphabe-Thursday meme. I have had a blast, "met" so many interesting and enjoyable people, learned a lot of new things ... and just truly enjoyed myself.

I used this meme to explore and record bits of me ... so when the great grands ask what i was like, well ... at least they will have a scrapbook, filled with alphabetic entries that give them an idea of who i actually was ... so much better than 2nd hand knowledge in my point of view ... so now that i have finished the blog portion, i have to print all of the entries and add them to my compendium of me album and the job is done!

I really hope to see you around for the next round ... this time my theme will not be me ... hopefully it will be something much more interesting and engaging.


I will be playing the summer school colours of the rainbow meme ... and as a little head start ... a rose ... this is a real rose, not photoshopped ... i just don't know how they did the rainbow dye job ... it is totally weird isn't it?

As always this post has been brought to you by the letters A - Z and Jenny Matlock’s incredibly fabulous Alphabe-Thursday meme … go visit her blog links to some interesting and amusing Alphabet posts! ... geez I can't believe that this is the last week. Time sure flies when you are having fun!

I'm looking for a new hook for Alphabe-Thursday as well. Probably 98 percent of them were about me. It was getting quite cumbersome towards the end.

That rose is really interesting. I love the many colors.

The rose is beautiful - I was wondering how it was done.

Thinking about it, I'd rather not know. Sometimes it's good just to enjoy the magic.

Vicki said...

Well darn...
I was hoping someone else would have done some pictures of themself. Guess I'm the only narcissistic one..

The rose is unique...

See ya in Summer school :)

Brenda said...

Beautiful rose! It was great getting to know you this round!

Amanda said...

Jo, I have enjoyed so much these stops at your blog. I don't think I will be doing the colors summer school (have a wedding to plan and a fixer upper to buy during that time), but I do hope to be back in class this fall! See you soon!

What a strange, exotic rose!
It's been nice getting to know you through Alphabe-Thursday. I'm sure there's lots of fun yet to come.

Happy Alphabe-Thursday,

Cheryl said...

I silly that I didn't even notice all of your stuff was focused on who you are. What a great idea to put it all together for the grands!

Mumsy said...

It was nice getting to know you Jo! I'll be trying to join in the rainbow meme as much as possible..sounds like fun!

This is such an unusual rose! I wonder how its dyed that way?

Hi Jo,

I love blogs that are personal. They are my favorites that I keep going back too. The picture of the rose is intriguing. Its quite spectacular that they were able to tint all the petals as they did. Thanks for sharing your stories.

PERMANENT POSIES said...

I have loved following Alphabet Thursday and every week, I find someone new. I wish I could read everyone's post every week but I don't have time. I just found you and hope to read more often in the coming weeks. I am doing the rainbow too.

The ABC's of you will be a treasure our family will love for many many years. What a gift to them, and to us by default!

I think this has bought a lot out of all of us - likes & dislikes, warts and all! I've certainly made new 'friends' even if most of therm are virtual!

Yanet @ 3 Sun Kissed Boys said...

Love the rose! It would work for Jenny's summer theme of Rainbow (if there's a round-up of that).

It's been really good fun and I can't wait for the next round!

良好的開端,已是成功的一半。..................................................

That rose is incredible and strangely compelling!

I haven't decided whether or not to do the summer school yet. I guess I'll see what turns up red in the next couple of days. I'll be back with an A in September though :)

Christy said...

i love what you did with alphabe-thursday and i know your family will be so excited to receive the scrapbook...what a great idea! that rose is pretty nifty too!
off to dig up a fabulous idea for red!

Jenny said...

Jo, what a sweet and clever post to make our big pot of Alphabet Soup even more delicious.

It has been such a joy getting to know you through this meme.

I look forward to getting to know you even more through the color memes.

Your idea of publishing your Alphabet links is fantastic.

And so are you!

A+
