U - Blogging from A to Z in April - Challenge - 24th April 2012



The Letter 'U'

Today is Tuesday, 24th April 2012 and the letter is 'U', which gave me a headache because I could only think of 'Ulv', which is an older Swedish word for 'wolf' (the normal word is 'varg'). I've got other plans for the letter 'W', so I will go ahead and do my A to Z-treasury about wolves and just call it 'U is for Ulv':



Why the Swedish? I am inspired by Tina Downey (not Tina of 'parltradet' who has curated all of these treasuries), no, Tina of Life is Good, who is one of the co-hosts for the A to Z Challenge April 2012. Tina is bilingual, and writes, with warmth and humour, about her childhood in Sweden, the people she loves, and about thinking in two languages. She has promised to teach everyone 24 Swedish words. And so far, she is doing an excellent job.

Okey, I'll be nice. Here's a treasury about a real U-word, 'Umbrella': 'U is for Umbrella':




Best wishes,
Anna

I love wolves...i think they are an amazing animal...and of course it is a real 'U' word. I think it's great to have the chance to learn words in different languages...and Swedish is such a pretty language to listen too....it flows so well it's almost musical when you talk in your natural tongue.

I love your pictures. The treasuries are so colorful and alive! Thanks for this, I needed a shot of color in my rainy day.
