Stick A Fork In Me

I want to curl up in bed and stay there and stay there and stay there, but wait! I have a word project. And the word is done. Today was torture, and now I'm done.

Threadbare

I felt worn out today. That's the phrase. Worn out, like parts of you have been rubbed off to reveal the stuffing beneath. And then I had a conversation with my mother about old clothes. That's when my word chose itself.

I’ve Combusted

Not only did we spontaneously decide to get out and do something new and fun today, but I spontaneously ditched my original word in favor of this one.

It’s Nice To Be Thought Of

A word found me today when a box got delivered to my door. For once, it wasn't to me, from me, via Amazon Prime. It was a bucket of Hello Kitty, and a lovely thoughtful gift that inspired this post.

A Pause In Time

It's very easy to get caught up in whatever is happening without really noticing what's happening. That's why today's word was "pause." Just cold-stopping whatever you're doing to pay attention to what's right in front of you.

Necessity Is The Mother Of Words

We have plans to go to one of my favorite restaurants tonight. So my mind is on looking forward to that. I wanted a word to express the feeling, but the English language did not want to cooperate. So I had to make my own.

Alice In Franklin

When Ralph and I got married, my mother rooted a clipping from one of her plants and gave it to us. Thus Alice was born, and she has been with us for nearly 25 years.

Play It Again, 2022

I already used the word "new" for January, but the thing that kept coming to mind is that it's a new month. Another chance to start again. So I landed on the word "again" as a unique reminder of how we can always start over.
