I'm a bit Wellaway today

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.

  1. Such a beautiful post for the day! I know it is sad to lose your boarders! During WW2, we had pilots and their wives living with my family in their last chance to be together before heading overseas. They all became our extended family and as an only child, they were the brothers and sisters I always wanted and never had — until then! Your photos are delightful and Peanut is a precious little one! Wishing you and your family — all of it — a very Merry, Joyous Christmas!



  2. A sad and happy tale at the same time. Sad for the special times that will be missed but Happy he got a job and can move on.
    Love your statement about “dumb o’clock” I will have to remember that one.
    Great words that I never heard of before.


  3. Wonderful post and while I can understand your sadness that your friends are moving on, I bet you’re more than happy he made it back in one piece. The photos of “Peanut” are so cute and glad she enjoyed her visit with the Big Guy in the Red Suit. Have a wonderful Christmas! 😀


  4. Lisa- Your posts have always been technically/linguistically fine. But of late, you’ve really blended the new words and the personal beautiful., Also loved the sunrise shot.
    God bless you and yours, and try to be strong.


  5. Wishing you a happy season! I remember when my daughter and granddaughter left to rejoin the hubs/father as he returned from his overseas duty and I thought life would never be the same. It wasn’t the same but the good came back around and around… (however I left the sweet little handprints on my hallway mirror for months 🙂 )


Please leave me some comment Luv! I appreciate each and every one.
