Zippity do da


Zippity do da, zippity day, my oh my, what a wonderful day.......

We made it fellow challengers! We finished A/Z (and the month of April :)

Thank you all for reading my posts through this month and faithfully commenting.

It was a wild adventure! I enjoyed trying to come up with something for each letter. Some were difficult, let's remember L for Lackluster, some were easy C for corgi and K for Koda.

There were over 1900 blogs participating. I obviously didn't get to check them all out, but I tried to check out at least 10 new ones a day, some more when I had the time. Lots of great blogs out there, lots of great blogs I already read. One could spend days reading them all and still not be done.

Will I do it again next year? I'm not sure. I think it would be fun to do the alphabet backward, start with Z and end with A.

Now what will I write about...........

CONGRATULATIONS to you on a job well done. I didn't get to read every post, but enjoyed the ones I did. Lackluster is a word that sometimes describes things around here too. LOL Koda is still a sweetheart. take care.

It was fun to see what you would come up with every day of your A-Z challenge. I hope your Monday is just a wonderful Zippity do da day!

Shelly said...

Wooohoooo to you for completing it!

Dot said...

So glad to have met you through the Challenge--your posts were great! Congratulations on completing it....and, BTW, I really like your idea of doing the alphabet backwards next year! I'll keep reading.

You amaze me at the amount of Blogs you have time to look at, and comment on!
I enjoyed you entries, but you make yours interesting no matter what.

Up early also, I see. It is even before 8am here, and that is unusual for me to be up and around, now to work.
Love you girl!

Lynn Proctor said...

yay--we did it--but i don't think i will be trying it backwards!!

Jeanie said...

Good job, Betty. Give yourself a pat on the back for me.

Dana said...

Congrats! I've had a lot of fun reading your posts.

Patrick said...

Thousands of years from now ... people will look back and wonder. :)

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick

Deanna said...

Great job Betty! Congratulations on completing this challenge. I'm positive there is no way I could have!

Looking forward to whatever you come up with next.

You've got me smiling and singing along!!! A+ Excellent Work would've been the teacher's grade back in the day on alphabet book assignment!

You're right, there are so many interesting blogs out there but I showed restraint and only clicked on a few. Two years ago, I probably would have read most of them.

And I was thinking "zoo" for the grand finale. Your "z" was fantastic!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Congratulations on a job well done!

Jenny said...

Congratulations! You did a great job with A to Z :-)

Funny in My Mind said...

You could pick a different topic for each day of the week. You could add your gorgeous coastal photos, Koda, inspiring verses, funny hubby/kid stories etc..
We made it!!!
I am so very lame today with Z.
Soon I will be back to my regular annoying posts, per usual.

Intense Guy said...

Chatty Crone said...

Congrats to finishing! And that song is exactly what I would have put for Z - love it. sandie♥

notes4neta said...

Great word! You're right..so many blogs, but definitely not enough time to enjoy them all! Nice 'meeting' you on the A-Z Challenge!

The Brown Recluse said...

I was SO bad about visiting/commenting...but ain't I always? haha

I'll probably do it again next year...but I think I'll name a theme next time.

Good job, Betty!

Rita said...

We made it! It was challenging, but I'd probably do it next year, too. I didn't have much time to check out too many other blogs. There were so many! I was thrilled when somebody new found mine from the list. I loved that sequence with this song in the movie too. :)

JosephAlsarraf said...

Hey, that's not a word! LOL! Glad you made it through the finish line! I know how you feel writing a post a day is hard, I used to do that, wasn't fun! Good job! : )

Nel said...

Woohoo we are finished! lol I mentioned that song in mine also. Good to find your blog again! Take care my friend
until next time... nel

Martha said...

We made it Betty!!! You are the second one that I've seen with this Z theme. I'll never get that song out of my head now, lol. Congrats! :)

Karen said...

Enjoyed A-Z!

Lynda said...

You did GREAT! And you seemed to have fun with it - - - your posts always seemed very upbeat!

jack69 said...

I meant to say, Zippide do dah has always been my favorite HAPPY SONG!!!

mare ball said...

I thought the same thing! Z-A for next year. Get the rough letter out of the way early. Very nice send off!

Toriz said...

Well done for completing the challenge! :)

Living Life said...

The A to Z challenge sounds fun, but I hardly have time to blog daily anymore. I'll bet you are glad you got to z! Amen!

Linda Fischer said...

Ya! We did it! And I'm wondering the same thing- What will I write about now? congratulations!

Autumn said...

It's always fun to read I'm glad your blogging.

Nezzy said...

Now girl, that was an accomplishment to be proud of!!!

I truly enjoyed each and every one I read.

God bless ya and have yourself one fine day sweetie!!! :o)

Jane said...

What a fun challenge and one that I'd love to try if it comes around again. Sometimes we need new blogging challenges to keep things fresh and interesting. Happy Wednesday!

Brenda Youngerman said...

I just wanted to tell you how much I adore you!!!!
Thanks for being you

Rob-bear said...

Oh, dear! You've finished Aye to Zed, and I haven't been visiting often enough.

I'm on Q at this point. But my excuse is that I have gone back to work. As Pastor of our congregation. And I'm finding that life interferes with my blogging. Having been retired for a bit, and then going back to work has been "interesting." Yes, that's the best word for it.

Blessings and Bear hugs from the Great White North (which is actually getting greener).
