The Zero Hour

11 Nov

I have participated in Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe-Thursday since the last week of July, 2010.  I’ve not missed a single week.  Even when life was crazy hectic and overwhelming, I’ve managed (rather obsessively) to participate.  I’ve not done a great job of visiting other participants recently, but I just had to continue through the alphabet despite the craziness of starting the pumpkin patch.

Our dear hostess, Jenny, has shared that she cannot continue due to health issues.  I feel so bad for someone as nice as Jenny dealing with chronic pain.  I do sincerely hope she finds some relief.

So we are at the zero hour, a momentus change.  After participating in the Rainbow Summer school and ten rounds of Alphabe-Thursday, I don’t know if I can quit.  I really do have a problem.  Thanks Jenny for such a great meme.

As an aside, you might have guessed from the pictures that we had some rain today.  We had severe storms with quite a few tornadoes across the state.  I’m happy to say that all of us at Eden Hills are safe.

    Thanks for visiting me! Did you read (above the people’s links) that Jenny is thinking about another meme? I wouldn’t want you to miss it:) Have a great rest of the week!

      I did see that, but I’m still missing Alphabe-Thursday. Don’t know if I can start another one. I’ll definitely check it out.

    I’m sorry about Jenny’s pain… 😦 So glad you’re safe…just heard about those storms on the news tonight!

      It was quite the event. Now we have some more wrap around rain and high winds. Luckily, we seemed to be in a good spot.

      It was a pretty scary storm. Very grateful we didn’t have any damage.

    Glad you’re okay, Teresa. Tornados are no fun, I grew up with them in Nebraska.
    I like your Zero Hour post, it is a good :Z” phrase. Jenny said tonight that she will do another meme, not Alphabe though.
    You sound like you might be wanting to pick it up for her. Huh, Teach?

    • Teresa November 13, 2015 at 10:41 am #

      I will certainly check it out.

  7. Claire November 12, 2015 at 12:38 am #

    Glad you are safe from the Tornado’s,..

      Thanks, Claire. It was quite the day!

      I will certainly check it out. There’s a lot of great people I’ve met through Alphabe-Thursday.

    I’m so sorry about Jenny. Chronic pain is miserable! I hope she can find some relief from the pain..

    I’m glad you and your critters are okay! That was some nasty weather!

    • Teresa November 13, 2015 at 10:42 am #

      Thanks. I hate that someone as nice as Jenny is struggling with her health.

    Jenny is going to continue on with some sort of meme because Mr. Jenny wants her too!!

    I hope you are going to join in because I just have to know what’s going on with your farm…

    • Teresa November 13, 2015 at 10:43 am #

      Very exciting! I know I enjoy visiting your mountains.

    And everything remains beautiful!

    • Teresa November 13, 2015 at 10:47 am #

      There is an awesome beauty in those powerful storms.

    I joined in 2009 nearly from the very beginning ! I will also miss it, but there is a ABC Wednesday theme which is quite successful. But I will also wait and see what new idea she has !

    • Teresa November 13, 2015 at 10:49 am #

      I came in reading part way through the first round, but I waited and joined with her Rainbow Summer School. It’s been a long time!

    I’m glad you came through safely. Without Jenny and Alphabe Thursday, I would not have met you and your gorgeous goats. You put me in touch with memories of the Daddy and his goats. 🙂 See you next Wednesday at Jenny’s.

      I’ll definitely stop by and see what Jenny has planned. Still hard to let go of Alphabe-Thursday.

  14. Betty November 13, 2015 at 2:15 pm #

    Glad that your OK after those storms. Yes, we have to check Jenny’s blog next Wednesday to see what’s going on.

    • Teresa November 13, 2015 at 2:28 pm #

      Thanks for stopping by. I am anxious to know what she has planned!

    I have always enjoyed my visits here. I hope to see you around at the new meme.It will be different but just as terrific when we all follow Ms. Jenny. She has been a terrific hostess considering her chronic pain. Take care, best wishes with the friends you share your life with and thanks for all the great stories. See you soon and enjoy your weekend.

    • Teresa November 13, 2015 at 10:40 pm #

      Jenny truly is wonderful. It will be interesting to see what she has planned.
