X for ABC Wednesday

Xenomorphic: having a form not its own
I'll have to stretch this word to encompass my sense of waiting, changing form, shifting shape which now wraps my mind.

I recognize the feeling. In the past, it has indicated a 'treading water' time before a new phase begins. How many times I've done this. But this time, I have not a mind niggle of what comes next. And yet, I know, it will appear. Won't it? :) Tomorrow? It may be nothing more than changing the way I look at something or changing a habit which is no longer working. It could be any number of things. I'll be surprised.

Has this happened to you?

Wacky for ABC Wednesday

Thanks, Bre, for the word suggestion!

I've reached the age where the world looks wacky. When I was younger and heard 'elders' speak of the wackiness that surrounded us, it seemed to me that what was happening was 'normal'.

But now, crazed is the synonym I'd choose for this current phase of wacky. You're welcome to write it for Wikipedia it if you wish as that site has no specific definition.

At which age does wackiness veer from normal to weird?

V for ABC Wednesday

Strange to think how many years I've known vinca vines without seeing a single blossom.

This vine was wintered over in the laundry room and finally produced a delicate bloom. Not long after, the entire plant curled up and was no more.

Wikipedia indicates that vinca vines are used for ground cover and proliferate so readily they become common weeds. That surprises me because if there's something I can grow well it is a weed in any form. I may have to try this again. Do you have vinca vines? On purpose or accidentally?

U for ABC Wednesday

ultracrepidate - to criticize beyond the sphere of one's knowledge
udometer - instrument for measuring rainfall

Am I the only one who notices the ultracrepidation that ripples across local newscasts and national punditry where everyone's a critic but most are far beyond their area of expertise? It seems like too much gravy for too few potatoes. Or too many backseat drivers. Or too many Monday morning quarterbacks.

Fortunately, winter has nearly released its hold so I'll spend time outdoors listening to the sweet call of birds and the hum of busy insects who have a valid plan instead of a mouth full of criticism.

Or, maybe not. It's raining again today. I think the udometer rusted.
