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.
Let’s get unusual.
wayment: lamentation; grief.
wellaway: expression of sorrow or lamentation.
Army Wife, Army Guy and Peanut are moving. If you follow me, you know that Army Wife and Peanut moved in with us January of 2009 when Army Guy was deployed to the most dangerous place on earth. When he returned to his family and to a dismal economy, they stayed with us to offset expenses while applying for Army Warrant Officer/Flight School. He’s been accepted and a new chapter in their life begins. While happy for them, part of my heart is leaving as well.
Needless to say, while they are packing their stuff, our house is in a state of:
whemmle: to overturn; to throw into a state of disorder; AND/OR
welter: to be in a state of turmoil or chaos.
welkin: the vault of the sky; firmament; heaven.
Stumbling through the kitchen at dumb-o-clock in the morning one Saturday last month, I saw this outside the window. One of the few sunrise shots I have. I’m amazed I was coherent enough to find the camera.
whiskerando. a whiskered person.
Peanut is two for two in seeing the most famous *whiskered person* in history. Since she’s more hesitant of people and those she doesn’t know, we wondered if we’d be successful this year. Turns out, we had nothing to worry about.
