Wondrous Words Wednesday

May 11, 2016

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!   If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

I recently read Megan Abbott’s upcoming book, You Will Know Me and found a few words in it.  I can’t quote the book, though, since it doesn’t come out until July.

1. drusy – Silver hair was likened to drusy quartz.

Drusy is a gemstone with a natural surface texture like sugar crystals.

2. kefir – A character in the book found a bottle of bubbling kefir in her refrigerator.

Kefir is a fermented food that resembles yogurt.

What words do you want to celebrate today?

    Ah well, I periodically get rid of drusy hair so how would I know such a word? :–) But Kefir, I have that for breakfast! (must be something drusy people have…)

    I learned about kefir from Michael Pollan, but drusy is new to me!

    I’m a health nut so I know kefir but was not at all familiar with drusy…

    Silver hair, as distinguished from gray? That sounds okay. 😉

    My link this week is a book word.

    I knew Kefir, but didn’t know drusy.

    I’m two for two today!

    I did’t know either. But I was close on “kefir.” I thought it was a hat worn in the Middle East!

    I was familiar with kefir. Not because I have ever eaten it, just because I surf the net a lot!!! Drusy is new to me, I wish my hair was silver instead of these faded ivory looking strands!

    Good words today Kathy. Druze sounds like it would be lovely.

    Hi Kathy,

    Both of your words are new to me this week and because of their sheer diversity, I had to sneak a peek at the book premise, to find out what it was all about.

    I’m not too sure whether this is one I would enjoy or not, however both your words are great. Thanks for sharing and hosting WWW 🙂

    I’ve heard of Kefir, but never really knew what it was. Thanks for educating me. 😉

    I knew of drusy gemstones.

  13. May 11, 2016 4:27 pm

    I knew kefir, yay
