I got my "S" under control!

I did.

For sure.

It took a bit of effort yesterday but finally my "Syndrome" quit being crabby and the day got good.

For the whole entire day, except for the brief moments when I was wrangling with the soaker hoses in the garden trying to get them in place to water my sweet little baby plants, my "S" behaved quite sweetly.

...but I will admit it flared up a bit this morning when I asked Mr. Jenny to give me another alphabet idea to tie into the second Alphabe-Thursday giveaway.

I thought that would be cute for this post.

You know?

Have another little alphabet segue and then do the giveaway.

So let me tell you about the conversation that happened here this morning at 6:34 am.

I say, very sweetly, "Baby, honey, sweetie-pie, sugar-lamb, honey-bunny? (ummm....gag now, please) Can you think of something cute using the letters of the alphabet to lead into my Alphabe-Thursday giveaway?"

And he said, "no."


Talk about no help here whatsoever.

So with no further ado I give you the winner for the second Alphabe-Thursday prize.




You fell for it.

Did you really think I would just do this simply? Pulllleeeze.

Here at Jenny on my tangent...I am all about unnecessary wordy confusion at all times.

Except for "Wordless Wednesdays" when I get even worse.


Hmmm.... but now that I wrote that I'm not really sure if it is a good thing or not.


Moving on with the giveway.

Because I want you to know that I conducted this giveaway with the highest professionalism using only the finest hi-tech equipment to ensure the results are spot-on... I am sharing my amazing computing system with you now. Who stole my calculator anyway?

But before I announce the winner from the 247 Alphabe-Thursday links I have a quick guest blogger. Hello class! This is Mrs. Matlock guest blogging here. I'm busy today. And I don't want to waste much time. I just want to remind everyone to please be sure to visit as many of the links you can. Even the later ones. Every student works hard on their paper and they deserve your respect.

For those of you who do not follow this rule...there will be detention.

That's all.

Goodbye class.

Hi. It's me again. Jenny. Wow. She is a tough cookie isn't she?


Why yes I have been checked for schizophrenia...why do you ask?

Quit distracting me.

I am trying to do a drawing here.


So, 247 entries for a prize of a $25.00 gift certificate to your choice of Michaels, Joanne Fabrics, Tasteful Garden or Amazon.

My dear friend, Mr. Random Integer Generator tells me:

Here are your random numbers:

Congratulations Sarah. This was a great "G" post!

Please e-mail me at: jennymatlock at to claim your prize.

And now.

I am exhausted.

And I still have to go to the grocery store.

And I feel that perhaps my "S" is coming back just a tiny bit.

So I'm saying goodbye for now.






You hang up first.

Glad you got your S back Jenny!
I have to admit that I missed out on "I" this week. I needed to take a little "I" time for myself so that I didn't Implode due to the Immediacy of my Intensive work!

VKT said...


You are an absolute hoot. You certainly have your S back hon. Have a wonderful day. Love the pic....I wonder how my class would react to me putting on a hat like that and glasses...they would think I have lost my S for sure...and maybe my m...for marbles.

Linda said...

Well done Jenny! Congrats to Sarah!! I can hardly believe this week we are up to the letter J. Now if I can Just thinks of a J post! Sigh such hard work being a blogger.

Chatty Crone said...

Wow that was a lot of work! You are so funny.

Glad you got your 'S' back Jenny.


Carol said... make me smile! Thanks for that! ;) Congrats to Sarah!

Jenny said...

You are cracking me up! It's good to know I am not the only one going to the grocery store today... have fun!

And congratulations to the winner!

Julie Schuler said...

Ms. Anthropy said...

My "S" never leaves! I do want to thank you... I'm sure you know why.

GardenofDaisies said...

Wait... you didn't want the "S" to come back did you Jenny? So ya'll quit saying you're glad it's back! Or am I the one who is confused?

JDaniel4's Mom said...

What a fun post! I just wrote my post for Thursday.

mrs. c said...

So Jenny! What a sweet girl to give prizes for somethig that we all look forward to!!!!

Brenda said...

Congrats to the winner. I've been away for a couple of days and did not get to read almost all of the Alphabee post that I usually read. Maybe I will get a chance to go back to them. But I did catch up on your blog Jenny and as always you have given me a giggle and a little bit of a tear. I read you very sweet post about your sister while catching up. You are quite a writer you know.

Mighty M said...

No, you hang up first! :)

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Congratulations to the winner! Jenny, I have to admit, your method is too high tech for me to follow...but then again, it's me that I am talking there isnt too much that isnt too high tech!

I definitely am making my way slowly through the wonderful "I" assignment list...(Can I play "hooky" from work, so that I can catch up with them all?)

Blessings & Aloha!

Theresa said...

Congratulations to the "G" winner! Great gift! Try to keep that S under control. AND I am not hanging up AT ALL:) Have a restful S-less Sunday evening!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I am so happy the Syndrome is gone...I am exhausted reading this. You have more energy than I do....
I just need more vitamins I think. Or a vacation. Maybe a vacay in AZ for me???
I think I might come down with the S soon. :0
Hugs, Suz

Justine said...

OMG, do you know how to NOT be funny? I think I loves you.

Londen @ Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

Unfortunately I have all 3 letters right now!! Not very nice!
Love your blog.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Ha! I love-- "You hang up first."

Congrats to Sarah.


Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

No let's hang up at the same time on the count of three!!


Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

I would be lost with my "S". My name and blog would be amiss.
Not to mention "ARA Weet Urprise" just doesn't have the same ring to my blog tittle.
I had a laugh about your hubs lack of suggestions. His understated enthusiasm is exactly the underwhelmed response my hubby gives me too, lol.

Sweet Jenny ...I want to thank you for your meant a lot to me.
Your words brought me such comfort at an extremely difficult time. Your support touched my heart deeply. I so greatly appreciated your concern.
Sweet wishes,

Holly said...

That is a good winner. I adore Sarah's alphabet posts.

Tracie said...

Congrats to the winner! I have enjoyed reading everyone's alphabet posts. Such creativity!

Vicki said...

Congratulations Sarah! I must admit I'm lacking at visiting other posts cause I think I can keep 2 of my own going....EH..
But I will get better..I pwomiss (o:
