Weekend, one day prior to the start of this year's A to Z Challenge, pretty exciting! I thought I might share some of the rules with you, all of the details, ideas, inspiration can be found here.

Most of the time if you subtract Sundays from April, you then have 26 days--one day for each letter of the alphabet.  When April 1st lands on a Sunday you begin on that day which will be the only Sunday you would post during that month's challenge. 

Using this premise, you would start beginning April First with a topic themed on something with the letter A, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z.  It doesn't even have to be a word--it can be a proper noun, the letter used as a symbol, or the letter itself.  The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.


I started this adventure last year and I did also the May Challenge and all I can say is that I had lots of fun, met great bloggers and also I did learn how to organise my blogging process in a more efficient manner.

You may wonder what will I do? Well I will not tell you too much since I really wish you will come back tomorrow and the day after tomorrow and so on ... But one extract from tomorrow's post:

To begin with A - accept your reality as it is, since the journey begins within.

As for today, I was pretty busy and what I am truly proud of, is my light lunch - baked gnocchi with wild garlic pesto and mozzarella and nice wok veggie including asparagus. Yummy! Some of the evidence below!

Happy Saturday!



The food looks very tempting! I'm sure you're going to have a lot of fun with this year's A - Z challenge, and I wish you well with it.

@Diane - thank you, I hope I prepared something interesting!

@Karen - it developed with time ;)

Good luck from a fellow A to Z blogger! Nice blog, btw. :)

Good luck with your A to Z challenge. Yummy looking food once again, you little chef.

@Heather - thank you, will have fun with the challenge, I know :)

Am looking forward to you posts on A-Z.

@Changes - thank you, first letter already posted!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
