The Zzz's Have Arrived

All good things come to an end.

I've survived the April 2015 A to Z Blogger's Challenge. I don't use a lot of "Z" words so no need to try to force any out now. One aspect of "Z" I thoroughly enjoy is catching my Zzz's and now is as good a time as any to catch them, regarding my blogging.


Salvadore Dali, "Sleep"

This challenge, with its request that you blog six days a week, with just one day off, is a blogging marathon alright. A marathon is set up to push you to your maximum.

Maximum reached.

I've never been shy about catching my Zzz's. I love a good rest, call it beauty sleep if you want. Whatever, I know my body and mind well and realize when the Zzz's are needed. My body and mind have requested a rest.

Z Request noted.

So listening to my body, mind and tapped spirit, I'm off for a bit, taking my blogging Zzz's.


William Powell Frith, "Asleep while Reading"

  1. Salvadore Dali, "Sleep" is an interesting piece. Kind of creepy.

    Now that we've reached the end of the Challenge, I can't wait to catch some Z's. :)

    Congratulations!!!

  6. I'm moving...so talk about exhausting. It's not really the posts--I wrote all of those in March. It's trying to read everyone's blogs and reply to comments on a daily basis. There's no way to get around to everyone every single day. Normally when you're visiting blogs, at least half of them haven't posted a new blog since the last time you commented, but not during A to Z!

  11. Thank you for visiting and congrats on completing this A-to-Z Challenge. There were days I didn't think I'd make it . . . and so now we can all welcome a few of those zzzz's, so aptly illustrated with Dali,, the darling of dreams.

  12. I think we all love our Zzz's at the end of the challenge :) I even made my Z topic into little Zzz's - it's been nice to get some since we stopped!
