The End: Alphabet Soup

And so I've reached the end of this odyssey with Alphabe-Thursday.  What a challenge it had been at times to come up with a creative post for the current letter of the alphabet.    I've enjoyed this journey with you, my readers and fellow Alphabe-Thursdayers, sharing our posts and lives.   Thanks, Jenny! (You can click on any of the following links--in blue--to go to that post.)

A   Arch Rock, Valley of Fire
B  B is for... Bicycle, of course! 

C  C is for... Cats, of course!

 Earnest (little white kitty)

G  g is for... glass, Chihuly glass!

H  Hummus (a recipe with sauteed carrots and onions)

I island -- Sint Maarten, Netherland Antilles/Saint Martin, French West Indies

M Mushroom House (a fantastical house created by Cincinnati architect Terry Brown)

 Nine Ns (cats--cute)

P  Pi (and Daniel Tammet, autistic savant ↑)

Q  Sail Away #2 (quotes included!)

R  an early love (a very short and incomplete reading memoir)

S  a special party (sculpture, too!)

W  wire

X  xeric

Z  Z Cloud

Well, not quite.  There was Rainbow Summer School and my post for the color

Thus truly ends my post for "alphabet soup," linking up with Jenny Matlock's meme Alphabe-Thursday.  A new round will be starting next week.  Be sure to visit Jenny's blog my tangent..., and link up.  It's so much fun and you'll be privileged to meet many folks and read so many wonderful posts.   Amazingly, Jenny visits EACH blog EVERY week!!
