Friday ~ One Word Description

La Jolla, California seals

La Jolla, California seals 

Today’s feature is all about a word.  I have one word to describe how I feel.

The problem is that my word is not actually a word (or at least one that I can find through any search).  The photo of the seals that I took last year while in California is a hint.

My one word description is:

See, I told you that it wasn’t a word, but it just fits!

ker-plutzed  ~  adjective

: a sluggish feeling of being washed out
: a sudden urge for weekend recuperation

Examples of KERPLUTZED

*Sue is kerplutzed from the physical strain of car travel last weekend, and then coming home to an ever busy schedule.
*The best remedy for feeling kerplutzed is a heaping dose of weekend rest!

(from Sue’s dictionary)

Do you have one word to describe how you feel today?  Perhaps even a made up one like mine?  I would love for you to share it, and even though you cannot post a photo to go along with the idea, maybe you could tell us what a picture of it would look like!

BTW ~ Some of you may find me whiny to complain about needing rest, since I just got back from a beach vacation last weekend.  Our trip was restful; however, travel is very hard on me physically due to my neck and back issues.  The older I get, the harder it seems to bounce back from traveling.

        Oh, BTW … I found a one word description that fits me today …

        unwintered (adj)
        description of one who’s previous winter-joy has been removed by prolonged wintery activity.

        “While she always loved winter, at the end of February she found herself unwintered, mostly dreading the cold.”

        antonym: winterjoyous

    Worn… I’m worn down from all of the things that are put on me. Physical and emotional parts of me have worn thin lately. Have a great refreshment this weekend and I hope the weather isn’t too bad for you. 🙂

    Sue, I love your word and the adorable picture! I’m “stuffled”. It is a word I just made up, and it means that I have a head cold. The picture would be one I took of a poor pathetic looking snowdrop flower with huge drops of water and slushy snow hanging off of it. This too shall pass, and spring will come. I’m very grateful it’s just a cold.

    Blessings ~ Wendy ❀

    This reminds me that each person in my Bible Study Group picked a word for the year. God lead me to be aware of my Perceptions. Amazing what a word can mean to us. Thanks!
