Abecedarium of Demise: The Letter Z


Zachary had Zero Zest for the day ahead
Yesterday he lost his Zither and his Zinnias all were dead.


As bad as yesterday was, today is a zillion times worse,
by the end of the day poor Zachary will fall victim to the Zombie curse.

Thank you for everyone who stuck with me! Go ahead, meme, you go on without me. I'll still be here, puttering around, if you want to see what I'm knitting or painting, stop over.

Hey Julie, I still have yarn I can send to you when you're ready for it. Don't forget.


You should make a book out of your alphabet. It was the best!!

I'm really going to miss your abecedarium's. They were always so much fun to wonder what they were going to be and to see the illustrations. You really did a wonderful job with them. I'll still be visiting your blog on a regular basis to see what your up to. Great Z post.

Poor Zachary. And dead zinnias are just the worst possible thing to befall any gardener.

Julie, please let us know if you decide to make this into a book. It was really fantastic and I will buy multiple copies for gifts!

I hope the days ahead start treating you much better. I am going to do a post but am waiting for the time that feels right.

In the meantime, know how much I admire your talents and your strengths.

You have been one of the very best things that has happened as a result of Alphabe-Thursday. I've loved getting to know you better through this meme.

A+
