Alphabe-Thursday: X with a bit of V

Sometimes I got it.

Sometimes I don’t.

Not much happening in the noodle this week.

I think “X” is such a lonely letter ~



I hope you have an eXcellent July of 4th weekend!!

eXcellent company

eXcellent food

eXcellent fireworks

eXcellent rest and relaxation


I don’t have much planned for the Holiday weekend.

My husband and I got away last week for a long weekend in the mountains.

It was cooler (until late afternoon) and very relaxing.

We rode our bicycles ALOT, we shopped, we rented a motorcycle to ride along the

Blue Ridge Parkway.

Some of the most beautiful scenery from the bike was around the Viaduct.

Now why didn’t I think of the Viaduct a couple of weeks ago for V week?!?!?!?!




A very eXtraordinary and eXcellent structure!


Be sure to check out what’s on everyone’s noodle this week over at Jenny Matlock’s X week!

    …And after this post you will suddenly see a whole lot of X-words that you did not think of! That happens to me too. Save them for the next go round. We will be doing the alphabet again after Jenny’s summer break with rainbow colours.

    Best wishes,

    The Blue Ridge Parkway is one of our very favorite haunts as well!

    My husband has never been on The Blue Ridge Parkway. I am taking him there one day.

    And perhaps we should meet then and play the xylophone together.

    While having X-cellent conversatsion.

    And laughing over our difficulty with this silly letter!

    Thanks for a clever link this week.

    It is always x-stra special to see you here.
