ABC Wednesday - More than "X"

I realize many people refer to Christmas as "Xmas."

I also recognize the saying, "X marks the spot!"

After a bit of consideration, I believe  "X"  refers to Bethlehem and Christ-mas!  :-)

Merry Christmas (in this case, a little late) and may you have celebrated the season in memory-making events with family and friends!

ABC Wednesday - W (What? Why?)


My son spotted a Carolina Wren and a Pine Siskin at my birdfeeders on Thanksgiving.  I hadn't seen either bird for a Loooonggg time!  Because I had just submitted my bird count the day before on the Project Feederwatch site, I couldn't count these birds!!

(left: house sparrow, center: pine siskin, and right: goldfinch)


Why is it that I haven't seen them since???  So I am still unable to add them to my count.  Humpfh!  ha.

I didn't get a photo of the Carolina wren... but I'm still hoping to spot them.  :-)

ABC Wednesday - U

According to Miriam-Webster, Ubiquitous is an adjective that means "existing or being everywhere at the same time :  constantly"

Yep!  I think this works.  :-)

There are many other posts showing "U" that you might like to peruse.

Check them out by clicking on the logo, below.

I am NOT, however, ubiquitous... as ever I might try to be.  ha!!
