The ABC of GGG

Today was filled with craft with Sylvia, an auction next door and a birthday party.  I had planned to post a recipe.  Instead I have decided to share an alphabetical list of 'me' words.

Choclette asked who would join her in jotting down "26 words that are meaningful to me".  I put up my hand because I love lists.

I originally intended to write some explanatory text beside each word.  Then I decided to be unusually brief and just write a list of 26 words.  Most of them are explained elsewhere in the blog or may well be in the future.  Join in if you will.

A - Aquarius
B - Bicycle
C - Catholic
D - Diary
E - Edinburgh
F - Feminism
G - Green
H - History
I - Ireland
J - Justice
K - Kitchen
L - Luddite
M - Melbourne
N - Nut roast
O - Ocean
P -  Pulp
Q - Quirky
R - Reading glasses
S - Stillbirth
T - Travel
U - University
V - Vegetarian
W - Website
X - Xanadu
Y -Yarning
Z - Zinc

  4. Cool - I like that you chose green for G. (My thoughts were it would be "giraffe".)

  5. Hi Johanna! What a gorgeous birthday cake!!! I was here for yesterday's post and had to flee in a jiffy. So glad I got a chance to visit today because your list reminds me of the Picnic Game we play on my blog, lol...

    I'm not much of a list person myself but I must tell you, I love what you chose for N. I remember your Nut Roast well:)

    Thank you so much for sharing...

    1. Thanks Louise - how funny that you aren't much of a list person but you love the picnic game because it is about lists isn't it?

  6. I love this -and I love that you haven't explained everything minutely. It's poetic, this way.

    1. Thanks Hannah - how nice of you to call my post poetic - I started writing out explanations but I thought it an unnecessary use of my time (and I like a little mystery)

  7. I love this (although after writing that I see I'm repeating others above - nonetheless, it's staying, because I do!). Some words I would have guessed, but not all. I am interested in Z!

    1. Thanks Kari - you can always repeat that you love my post :-) Zinc is our cat - we didn't name her but you will see her on the blog occasionally

  8. Really like the way you've done your list. It's nice and simple and is remarkably self-explanatory - apart from Z??? It made me laugh that you got nut roast in - excellent stuff. Enjoyed reading this and thanks for joining in.

    Amazing cake BTW

    1. Thanks Choclette - had fun with this list and quite liked the way it looked without too much text - the nut roast was a last minute addition - I was trying to avoid including too much food in the list

  9. Isn't amazing how much you can get across in 26 words? Very very revealing.

    1. Thanks Helen - I would have revealed more if I didn't have clusters of words around certain letters that meant I had to make hard choices :-)

  10. Oh I do love your list and your right, having read your blog for years - no explanation necessary.

  11. I love this list!! Always smile at "feminism"! And I think I actually know the allusion in all cases but one or two. . . time to do a blog archive search. ;-)

Thanks for dropping by. I love hearing from you. Please share your thoughts and questions. Annoyingly the spammers are bombarding me so I have turned on the pesky captcha code (refresh to find an easy one if you don't like the first one)
