Zelda feels much better on thyroid medication

On to December....


  1. Thank goodness for Zelda! Heavens knows what I could find to write about around here that starts with the letter 'Z'.

    So glad you're feeling better, pup.

  2. I love the way you do this - I must give it a go to give a bit more focus to my month! Sounds like a pretty good one - hope December is too!

  3. Very nice, and I love how you handled the more challenging letters!

  4. What a great post. I love it. And it looks like a wonderful month.

  5. I like are so clever! And as far as projects next year, I am going to read what I want! When I want!

  6. Happy 25th Anniversary and so sorry your UK trip was thwarted.

  7. Darlene - This probably couldn't be a regular feature without Zelda.

    Verity - It was an excellent month, from a through z!

    Rhapsodyinbooks - Thanks, this is a fun end of the month exercise!

    Carolsnotebook - Thanks you. It was a very good month.

    Sandy - Reading what I want, when I want will probably be my primary project, too.

    Joan Hunter Dunn - We're still hoping to get to London at a different time - maybe this winter or next fall. Keeping my fingers crossed!

  8. I really like this end-of-the-month format. You tell so much in just 26 lines. I'll bet it keeps you thinking in terms of letters all month long.

  9. Margot - This is fun, but if I start choosing books because they start with Q or X, it's gone too far ;-)

  10. Congrats on your 25 years of wedded bliss :) I think I will use the A-Z idea for our year's highlights on our Christmas card. Thanks!

  11. so many great things happened in November...Congratulations on 25 years of marriage and I'm glad that Zelda is feeling better!!

  12. I love your wrap up list and congrats on 25 years of marriage. I'm so happy that Zelda is feeling better!

  13. LOVE this!! You've made me smile today! And Happy 25 Years!!

  14. Kim - I never thought about this for a Christmas card... what a great idea!

    Staci - November was a pretty special month this year. Can't believe our wedding day was 25 year ago!

    Darlene - Thank you! I'm so glad a little thyroid medication has made Zelda feel so much better.

    Coffee and a Book Chick - Glad this made you smile... 25 years has gone by in a flash!

  15. Your month sounds wonderful, and congratulations on your twenty-five years.

  16. I love these poetic, concise monthly wrap-ups!

  17. Fleurfisher - Thank you... hard to believe 25 years has passed!

    Erin - I'm glad! They're really fun to write, too.

  18. You must be my alphabet-lover twin. You are so clever. :)

  19. Care - Thanks... gotta love those ABC's!

  20. I love the structure of these posts! Congratulations on 25 years of marriage!
