Z is for Zest

I am hoping I get my zest back, not enough zzzz's have me walking around like a zombie. My family being home all week, has been fun, but draining. Run here, go there, where's that...???!!! I like to stay up late and my husband is a morning person. I'm burning the candle on both ends.  We had a horror fest last night; my daughter had friends overnight, as we wrap up spring break. Interesting we go from having a tea party and watching a Royal wedding to a horror fest. What could be better...

I feel sad the A-Z challenge is wrapping up; I didn't get to blog much the past week. I appreciate all of you who took the time to visit me; I will return the favor. I met some amazing new bloggers and cherish my regulars!  It was fun n' fabulous; I'm glad I participated in round #2.

Speaking of zombies, I want to warn you new followers. It is a little prediction I made in March. I know we all have seen zombies; remember to on guard!  BEWARE...

We all need to rest a bit to get our zest back, regain our blogging schedule. I look forward to playing a bit of catch up in my artistic endeavors. I will be having a give away in a few weeks; my Blogging Anniversary is coming up. I enjoyed the posts, meeting new friends and seeing how varied the topics were; it was a Amazing Blogging Challenge!   Things usually come in 3's???  No, we won't think about that now... enJOY your down time~

I FEEL like a zombie today! Yesterday I asked for magic and the entire day was so amazing, I am now utterly exhausted. Today I wont ask for magic: maybe a cold cloth and some tylenol, hee hee! I always enjoy your posts, Ellie.
Most enjoyable post Ellie.
So glad you mad it to the end of the challenge.
Thanks for your support.

Royal weddings to horror. That is a stretch. I'm glad we are blogging buddies too and wish I could visit more often. The one thing about zombies that has never been answered is: Who do they eat when everyone is a zombie?

Everyone's exhausted but we got to the end. Yay! Congratulations and zest is a good one. I agree with N.R. - who do zombies eat when everyone's a zombie?

That's a great pic. I almost did zest to day too, but for the same reason, I didn't. I seem to have lost my zest after this challenge. But I'll be getting it back soon. :)

oh, I'm the same way. I get so used to my quiet time during the day that when everyone's around me, my cat-like nature emerges... :D But I lol'd at the zombie picture. Yes, time to rest~ <3 555

Perfect choice for Z, Ella...I'm hoping to find a little zest myself. I'm so sorry to hear you've been unwell, especially as I've been ill myself and know how horrid it is. The doctor suggested after the fact that I probably had the Norwalk virus...how weird is that?!

Take good care of yourself and feel better soon...:)
