My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Thesaurus Thursday

Welcome to Thesaurus Thursday, 2009.

This game has brought me great joy and taught me many new words! I'm glad to continue it into this new year. Welcome to all newcomers!! Take a minute and peruse our "game rules" here, then come back to this post and join in for big fun and enormous laughs!

Are you ready??

Last week's official definitions were:
inclinometer - 1) an instrument for measuring the angle an aircraft makes with the horizontal 2) an instrument with an iron needle swinging freely in the vertical direction for measuring magnetic dip (many of you came very close to this definition...just not specifying that it was found in a plane. So, if you were close and haven't gotten the Smarty Pants before...go ahead and pick it up from the sidebar!)

incogitant - thoughtless; inconsiderate.

Congrats to these Silly Geese:

Inclinometer: the skill of measuring maternal exhaustion by determining the mom to floor incline.

Incogitant is what a person is who is incognito.


Thanks! y'all cracked me up!!

The words for this week are:


For those of you who are new this year, all words and definitions come from my 1992 Random House Webster's College Dictionary. I do not pick proper nouns or words that I know the meaning of.

For all winners, the Awards will continue to be found on my sidebar to pick up at your leisure.

Now don't forget to leave your comments for the new words!

Jalousie: The emotion a Southern Belle feels (but never expresses) when her beau dances with that newcomer from up north.

Jalousie--it's an architectural term, but I forget what it means. I'm thinking it's a supporting beam of some sort.

Jape--is that a female jackass, um, donkey?
