Wrought Iron

This picture was taken at the duck pond when we went a couple of weeks ago.
We have been staying busy.  Last week the boys did VBS and had a great time.  I have started teaching my class.  Plus I still have my other job.  It's good to be teaching again. 

Yesterday I turned a year older.  Next year I'll hit the next decade. 

I learned a new word this week, while reading a book called The Expats (which was excellent, if you like spy thrillers).  The word?  Vomitoria.  Yeah.  You know I had to google that.  Furthermore - I think it'll be a word that I get a chance to use next time I'm at a ballgame or something. 

Have a great weekend, readers!

Happy (Belated) Birthday Lisa; you certainly are a busy lady. =)

Vomitoria? That's a new one on me, although I do know what a vomitorium was... I know, the weird tidbits of knowledge we pick up!

I'm glad you are having a great summer. Mine has been slow, but the extreme heat has stayed away this week, so that makes me happy!

Happy Birthday to you!!

I had to look up the word, and I laughed that you didn't tell us what it meant. I've seen one of those a time or twenty. :)

I like the fence!

Sally Crowe said...

You're sure staying busy this summer; I'm happy you enjoy the work. And, I know you're very good at it. :)

Okay, now I have to google that word.

Ginny said...

I have to look that one up! Great about the jobs, but how do you manage them in the summer? The fence picture is cool! Is part of it really red or is it a trick of the eye from the sun?

Ginny said...

I just looked it up, so interesting! So maybe there were two kinds of vomitoriums...

Did the ancient Romans invent that to use after their eating orgies...?

Happy Belated Birthday, Lisa! I hope you had a wonderful one. I'm glad you are enjoying your class. I'd like to take it. :-)

Now I'm going to have to look up that word--and the book. I love spy thrillers.

Nice fence. I find the half red, half black to be very interesting.

Happy belated birthday Lisa. I hope your family rolled out the red carpet for you. Teaching is a challenge, but certainly rewarding--glad you are getting the chance to do it again.

Happy birthday, you young thing!
I would love to still be teaching, but I wore out!
We learned about a vomitorium through a tour of the National Art Centre theatre! (Of course, my son, the actor would know about this, but I did not!)

We had the grandkids and my daughter over last night. I am so tired! They've gone home. I've forgotten about having kids around!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I've never heard of that word....very interesting!
Happy belated birthday-you are a whippersnapper!

Michael Manning said...

You gave me a laugh! I- think I'll pass on the Wikipedia--I have an idea from grade school on that one!
