My insouciant* attitude is showing

Welcome to Round 7 of ABC Wednesday. The meme was started by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt, and people from all over the world come together to play and share their entries. Each week word(s) beginning with the designated letter are selected and illustrate through a photo, poem or prose. My twist on the meme is selecting unusual words and pairing them with photos of familiar things in my world. I’ll be pulling words from sources here, here and, of course, here.

Last week someone was inspired enough to nominate my H-day entry for ABC recognition. I’m honored and thank whomever it was. How fitting that the design pictures one of my favorite places for inspiration…the BEACH and OCEAN!

Now, let’s get unusual…

islomania: craze or obsession for islands.
islandic: of or pertaining to an island.
Or just give me any Caribbean beach, the ocean and a tropical drink and I’m a happy girl. Life’s a Beach when your vegetating on one.

iridal: of or pertaining to the rainbow.
iridian: having or suggestive of the colors of a rainbow.
Caught this outside our house last year and blogged about it HERE. Rainbows always make me smile.

iguana: large tropical lizard.
While vacationing down the Mayan Riviera, we visited the ruins of Tulum. Tulum was a major Mayan sea port protected on the land side by a 16 foot wall and on the ocean side by 40 foot cliffs. The cliffs were particularly attractive to the local iguanas. There were probably 15 of them on the cliffs when we were there, blending perfectly into the rocks.

A little closer…

*insouciant: lighthearted and unconcerned. Hope you’re having an insouciant kind of day!

  1. Excellent “i”deas. I was going to do iguanas but decided on our late great cat, Igor, instead. Just a coincidence there’s a hurricane by the same name this week.
    You’re right about beaches. Super places.

  2. Hello!
    Adore your box of crayons comment under the photo of you. I,too, am like that.
    This “I” post is informative in the ways I adore. Words are like chocolate to me. I learned a new one from you, today and enjoyed seeing other favorites. Thanks!
    The photo collage of places I love, too, is impressive.


Thank you for taking time to comment. I appreciate each and every one.
