WOW! The Word is - Plethora

Plethora Means -- I Can't Stop for a Breath
A little off the beaten track, here -- I follow a blog called Mommy of a Monster, written by a delightful young mother of three who knows how to express herself beautifully, whether it's the joys in her life or those moments when she just wants to pull her hair out. She's also a writer and enjoys word play, as do I, and this week there's a little vocabulary meme called WOW! (Word of the Week!) for bloggers who must use the word plethora, as often as possible, in a post. So, I'm using the word and the little button to maybe entice you to also participate in any of the exercises that may be done in the future.

There's A Plethora of Activities Waiting to be Done
So, of course, doing this meme means I've had to rearrange other things scheduled for this week. I have been able to check off making the next six month's supply of tallow because that was taken care of on Monday.

Yesterday, in a small break from the rain, we were able to pick a plethora of blueberries at an invitation from my neighbor whose bushes were so full they looked like beaded curtains. I can already smell the pandowdy, tarts, jam, muffins, breads, and pancakes -- mmm-mmmm, a cornucopia -- no -- a plethora of treats to be prepared.

Blueberries, plump and tasty!

So, you can see that there's little time to waste. Tomorrow promises to be mostly sunny; but, I won't wait for it. Time, tide, and, well, fruit, wait for no man (or woman), so it's bear down and get the job done. And, then, of course, write about it.  Although, if push comes to shove, I could come up with a plethora of excuses...


  1. Sharlene! I love this!! Thanks for linking up and for the shout out :)

    Now on to the important stuff...those blueberries are beautiful - I'm so jealous that you had a chance to pick all of them. And I can't wait to see what you are going to do with them!!

  2. Ah, plethora is one of my favorite words. It just has such a nice sound and rolls off the tongue so smoothly. Facetious ranks up there, too, but it has a crisper sound and feel than plethora.

    Plethora, you just can't over eat without it! ;-)

  3. Dang those blueberries look good! Hope you have a great 4th of July and have a plethora of delicious meals.

  4. I think I´ll pass this one. I have troubles enough with my english as it is sometimes :-) :-)

    I just have to buy some of those blueberry bushes. I think they might survive my climate, but it´s borderline I think.
    Have a great day now!

  5. My husband just planted 100 blueberry plants this year. It'll be a couple of years before we can harvest, but we're really looking forward to it.
    In the mean time, we've picked a few gallons of blackberries. I can't wait to make something wonderful with them. So far, we've eaten a gallon for every two we've picked. Nothing makes me happier than a full freezer though!
    I'm glad I found you through WOW. I'm your neighbor, we live in SC.
    Enjoy those blueberries!

  6. Plethora is one of those words that my English students try to use, sometimes to hilarious effect. If they could just learn how to pronounce it, huh? SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did!

  7. I have always used the word plethora. I would love to have a plethora of bluberries to make some yummy bluberry pancakes! I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!
