ABC Wednesday - X!

Got your dictionary out? You ready to play with the letters? It's that time again! ABC Wednesday is hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt and the ABC team: Denise, Annelie, Leslie, Nathalie, Joyce, Donna, Helen, Roger, Troy, Jay, Barb, Gattina and me! Hope you all had a terrific Christmas! I did as my daughter I hadn't seen in seven years came for a wonderful Christmas visit! So, I've been pretty busy! But X marks the spot and today is the X Day!! X is for Xmas, Xanadu, X-ray - a flower X-ray this time! And X is for Xylophone!
May you all have a very Happy New Year!!

I suppose I should see Xanadu some day; I have the title song on an O N-J greatest hits album!

Coll, Sylvia! I hope you had a great Xmas!

RuneE said...

I have worked quite a lot with X-rays, but never with one of a flower - extraordinary beauty!

Happy new year to you!

George said...

I'm impressed with the 'X' words you have found. Your mosaic to go along with them is beautiful.

Hildred and Charles said...

Great X'a and so nice to hear about your happy Christmas.

Al said...

That's a great X mosaic, Sylvia. It's been a long time since I've seen that Xanadu album cover - when I think of Xanadu, I think of the song by the band Rush. I hope your week is going well.

Carver said...

Great post as always. I looked for my old xylophone but couldn't find it. Good to see you including one.

photowannabe said...

I had forgotten the word xylophone. Perfect choices for the X word. Nice pictures too.

Kay L. Davies said...

Wonderfully done, and not X-rated at all. Lovely mosaic, Sylvia.

Lovely as usual, Sylvia. Hoping you have a wonderful, extra-special New Year! :D

Barbara said...

Great X words. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Sylvia.

Gigi Ann said...

X isn't an easy word to find things that work with it, but you came up with a variety of X words today.

Joy said...

An wonderfully extra-special Christmas for you this year. How interesting to x ray a flower but the xylophone hit the right spot. I used to be able to play a few tunes on one but I think they have been erased from my memory bank.
Wishing you a happy new year

Good X. It's been a while since I've seen a xylophone and never have I seen an X-ray of a flower. Xanadu, I love! What a wonderful pleasure it must have been to see your beautiful daughter!

Happy Xmas dear.. Happy ABC Wednesday

Arija said...

My dear Sylvia, you had your daughter and I had my son for Christmas and life was good.

I have not managed to post much with all the family doings and the Prof becoming more and more dependent on my constant presence. The little grey cells seem to be on a fast toboggan ride down a steep hill. The change in the last ten days has been quite noticeable.

My blogging may need to become rather sporadic and my visits infrequent as the demands on my time become greater.

I wish you a wonderful approaching New Near, may you always have a dream handy that can conveniently materialise! . . . Arija

Gattina said...

Congratulations ! you found quiet some words to make this collage !
Not so easy this letter !

Ann said...

What a colorful xylophone. Beautiful collage

Vernz said...

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
