Thursday 13, the letter Z

My final ABC Thursday 13.....the letter Z
1 zucchini- favorite bread to make into a muffin!! Will doesn't think the same!

2. zoo: From the Columbus, OH zoo: Oh yeah, I still laugh when I look at this pic ....that is truly a face only a mother could love.

3. zone clean: I zone clean ....a Flylady thing. Basically the house is divided into five zones (entrance/dining room, kitchen, bathrooms/kids' room, master bedroom, living room)....I focus on a certain zone each week. Ideally, during one month the entire house gets a thorough cleaning. The key word here is ideally. Before kids I would have stressed to the nth degree if it my house wasn't immaculate....now a general clean is okay. Though the dust on the baseboards still wear me out!

4. Zip code: Every time we move, it takes me forever to learn my new zip code! Forever! We have been here since the summer and I still confuse the last digit!

5. zapped: I have been zapped by a cow prod. It left a little dent in my shin bone. Lovely high school memories.
6. zeal: I like to think I have a zeal for life. I try to make the best of wherever we are, wherever we live. No sense whining for several years!
7. Fort Worth Zoo.....Fort Worth Zoo We had a great time there on spring break. We went there and to Six Flags. It was the first vacation after Husband got back from deployment.



8. zebra: In TX we went to a drive through zoo ....a zebra followed our car right at Livi's eye level. She did not like that one bit!

9. zero: tattoos on my body. I have always wanted one...but have a pain tolerance of ZERO.

10. zest: anytime we make muffins with fresh lemon or lime juice, I use the zest in the muffin batter. It makes it so much more flavorful and moist.

11. zip: I am totally not one to gripe...but people who zip through traffic (especially when the temps are hovering between 30-35) scare the bejesus out of me!

12. zodiac = cancer = crab......traits makes you wonder if the stars know something I don't!

13. Zoomboomafoo- if you know what this is, you must have kids!
This ABC Thursday 13 has been fun and challenging! I am not sure what I will do next.....any suggestions??
Happy Thursday, y'all!

Gosh. Z. Congratulations! This is a real accomplishment! :)

I do love zucchini bread... and your zeal for life.

Z is a tough one, but you did great. Zip codes get me, too.

Nicholas said...

very ingenious use of the letter Z!

Keep your tattoo total at zero. I'm sure you look much better unblemished.

Carol said...

Yay for you! Loved your Z-list!

And the FTW zoo absolutely rocks!

Congrats on getting to "Z". You did a great job and as always, I enjoyed learning 13 new things about you and your life. Maybe I should try an alphabetic TT. Happy Days!!

I loved your alphabet Thursday 13. :) Congrats on getting to Z. I'd like to do this sometime, but I need to get into an update routine first, so I don't keep missing it. The same for the Friday Fill-ins. :P

I'm going to have to go to that drive through zoo sometime while we're down here. That sounds like so much fun. :)

Someone recently mentioned cleaning her baseboards from a chair (she had a broken leg at the time) and that it was so much easier that she's going to keep doing it once she's healed up. :)

Congrats on finishing the alphabet TT! I think I could not finish Z until #13 if it was me! :-)

It is the teeth that make that face.. my kid does the same face/teeth thing!

You definitely have a ZEST for life tommie!!

Allison said...

Flylady rocks. Not that I'm doing the zone thing yet. :-|

MInTheGap said...

Wow, you've done way more TTs than I have!

Happy TT!

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Ha! I can't decide which photo (#1 or #2 that I love more). They are both perfect in their own ways.

Congrats on A-Z! Double woot!

Marina said...

Have been wanting to do the A-Z T13, but I keep getting distracted by holidays and such:

Love those zoo pics. I might have been through that same drive-through zoo when I was a kid... but then again, maybe not. I can't remember it's name, or its location, and Texas is a pretty big place.

Happy TT!

I have no suggestions, but I have so enjoyed them all. :)
