I decided since I have had a hard time posting lately that I would start doing April's Word of the Week and maybe even Lelly's SPT (Self-Portrait Tuesday), but all that sounds a bit ambitious so . . . we'll see. I think my problem is that my camera has been having issues and it's really frustrating and I don't like blogging without pictures - maybe I should get over that and remind myself of the journaling aspect of why I started blogging.
So here's the word of the week:
incandescent /adj./ very bright. shining brilliantly. beaming, effulgent, radiant. a high degree of emotion, intensity, or brilliance.
incandescent /adj./ 1. My house has no incandescent lights on the outside, BUT the other day my wonderful husband informed me that he promises he will put them up next year. He promised. Maybe he thinks I'll forget his promise, but I won't. So, my house will be incandescent next year -- yahoo!
incandescent /adj./ 2. One of my favorite things to do during the Christmas holiday is to put my kids to bed (love that 7:00 bedtime!), turn off all the lights, snuggle up on the couch and just space out in front of the beautiful, incandescent Christmas tree. It's almost as good as a camp-fire for zoning.
incandescent /adj./ 3. I love the incandescent aura of Christmas. The other day in the car London exclaimed "mom, I just love all the pretty (she could have said incandescent) lights, Christmas trees, and everything about celebrating Jesus' birthday. I love His birthday." And so do I. I am very grateful that my girls have been more focused on the birthday part of Christmas than the Santa/presents part this year. London wants to watch the Nativity dvd all the time.
Hmmm. . . I kind of like this word of the week thing -- I know I'll learn some good words!
