Wicked Word Wednesday (1.8) Results

Wicked Word Wednesday Results
Thanks to everyone who participated in Wicked Word Wednesday. This past week we had 3 entries, down a bit, but perhaps that’s my fault as I wasn’t on my A-Game with Week 1.7. Moving on . . .

“Enough!” I hear you cry, “We want to know who won!”

Very well; the winner this week is . . .

Dr. Meg Sorick

I wore thick spectacles and had the unfortunate name – Prudence. I suffered the teasing, but I finally reached the end of my rope when Mr. Eldridge referred to me as “bookish”. I cast the spell and turned him into a frog!


No – her piece wasn’t chosen for the inclusion of a surname in close proximity to my own; she won fair and square!

Congratulations to this week’s winner (don’t forget your badge!) and tune in Wednesday for another Wicked Word!

Sunday Snapshots

It seems I haven’t seen the sun in a week; maybe because I haven’t. The sky cleared just enough last Sunday to view the Super Blood Moon Eclipse, but perhaps it wasn’t the best idea to read Lovecraft under such a sky – the rain continues to fall, the water continues to rise, and the weatherman predicts more over the next days.

Now, I tried taking pictures of said eclipse, but my iPhone doesn’t take great moon photos – shocking, I know.

So, what else happened this week?
Several of my history students presented projects centered on the Thirteen American Colonies; as part of that project, they cooked a meal and dipped candles:

Venison and Potato Stew with Greens and Spiced Cider

Beeswax Candles with Red Dye

Then, it was time to celebrate National Coffee Day:


You wouldn’t know to look at it, but this medium dark roast with two cream and two sugar was FREE!

The celebrations continued – despite the rain – with the First Day of October!

For Krystal: Chi Frappuccino

For Me: Salted Carmel Mocha Latte

Finally, here’s a random picture of stuff left in my pockets at the end of the day:

Oh, and I didn’t forget about the rain:

Don’t forget to follow me on:

Facebook – where I share news stories, articles from other blogs, and various and sundry miscellany that happens to catch my eye. It’s stuff you won’t see here! Well, mostly.

Instagram – where I show you my Life in Motion and share quotes and such. The widget only shows my last three photographs – don’t you want to see them all?

Twitter – where you can see my thoughts in 140 characters or less. Also, funny retweets.
