Random Thoughts on a Sunday Evening

This Sunday afternoon I find myself fancifully thinking about my favorite f words.

flummoxed by Amy's malapropisms and mispronounciations in the 1994 version of Little Women: " I'm so degretitated." and "We've been expectorating you for hours!"

feisty: My daughter when she was four.

flying buttresses: Toured this minster on my trip to the UK in 1998.

York Minster, York, England


"How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?
A flibbertijibbet! A will-o'-the wisp! A clown!"

farce: The Berrybender Narratives by Larry McMurtry, a funny funny book!

featherweight favorite:
funny freckled females: Up to no good no doubt!

feast: Not many leftovers on this table.

flavorful fragments: remains of this Lemon Meringue pie which my daughter cooked for my birthday.

funicular: You can barely see the famous Sacre-Coeur Basilica top middle of the photo.

Montmartre, Paris

fabric favorite of the moment:

Drawing Room by Anna Maria Horner

Just for the record, I am not actually fifty four yet. I still have another week to go, but we all have other plans and obligations next weekend.

So how about you? Have any favorite f words you'd like to share?


  1. Fine, fanciful, fotos and ...dang! I can't do word for words that starts with F. LOL. Cute post. And girl...order that cute little birdie packet from Crafty Secrets!

  2. I have never thought about my favorite f words but I know that I love fireworks and that starts with fireworks it is.
    ps happy almost birthday!

  3. Well, I'm flabergasted at that fabulous looking lemon meringue pie!

  4. My favorite word would have to be flibbertijibbet, of course! :)

  5. Well have a fun-filled feast for your fifty fourth festivities!

    Happy Birthday Steviewren. :)

    I happen to adore freckles...your grandaughters are fabulous!

    And funiculars...surely one of the best f words out there....

    Fabric, yes, yes, more please!

    Your daughter, so fey!

    What a fun post.

    Some f words I like: frou-frou, flapper, forest, furlough, forgotten, forbidden.

  7. Wow Steviewren I'm going to be 55 in a few days! A fellow Gemini! I knew we had a ot in common. Happy birthday a week early!

    I love the word "fandango" -- meanings --
    1)An animated Spanish or Spanish-American dance in triple time.
    2)A piece of music for this dance.
    3)Informal. Nonsense; tomfoolery.

    Thank you for the book recommendation you left in your comments on my blog. I've always meant to read that book and I'll look for it in the library next visit.

  8. Flamenco! I would love to see this dance done live in Spain. Happy birth-year (since it is not your "day" yet). The world is a better place with your blogging in it. Cheers!

  9. Great post and Happy Early 54th!

    Hum...Flabbergasted, frequent, fleur/flower, fantastic, and forlorn.

  10. Fun, Fabulous, Female; that would be you I am referring to!

  11. Frabjous!
    ("And has thou slain the Jabberwock?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!") - from the Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll


I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
