words vs. wordless

This week's words on Wednesday:

*habiliments-clothing (from To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee)

*fulminant-developing or progressing suddenly (from And the Band Played On by Randy Shilts)

*peripatetic-wandering from place to place (from And the Band Played On)

I am simply amazed by just how many words there are out there that I don't know. How many of these are new to you?


And if you don't like words, there's always Wordless Wednesday:

I'm two for three again. "Fulminant" was new, though it shouldn't have been. I read And the Band Played On many years ago, when it first came out.

Loved the photo!

not a bad WW at all!
Happy WW!

Out of those, I only knew "fulminant". And yes, it's amazing indeed!

I've heard of peripatetic before but not sure I knew it was that definition.

That is a gorgeous picture!

Ya know, either I'm an idiot today or those are some funky words cuz I can't pronounce any of them and I have no clue what they mean, LOL.

Love the picture!! It's beautiful!
