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.
xanthometer: instrument for measuring color of sea or lake water.
Since I left my xanthometer at home last week, I had oh so much difficulty determining the color of the sea in Florida over Christmas.
xanthic: yellow; yellowish.
The sea foam was not *seafoam green* as bridal salons would have you believe in their color charts. Sea foam is an icky, dirty yellowish color. At least it is in Florida in December. When I took this shot, I really has no idea what I was going to use it for. Go figure.
xenial: of or concerning hospitality towards guests.
The Floridian was very xenial on our Christmas trip to see her. I think she felt sorry for her aged parents who drove 17 hours straight through and arrived at 7am Christmas Eve morning.
