Hello and Welcome!
Our word of the week is Astute.
Meriam Webster defines astute as:
having or showing shrewdness and an ability to notice and understand things clearly : mentally sharp or clever
In my opinion astute is not a pleasant sounding word (sharp, clever or “on the ball” sound much better). However astuteness is an admirable attribute, so if someone referred to me as being astute I would certainly consider it a compliment.
Now the astute reader (of my blog) may have noticed that there is no “Word of the Week – Week # 26”. They may even want to call me out on it, to which I would applaud them for paying attention and thank then for being a loyal reader. I would also apologize though I have no excuse; I didn’t forget, I wasn’t too busy, I have not been ill and I am not on vacation. For some reason I just was not able to coordinate my mind with my body in order to produce that post.
Again I apologize and hopefully this post will get me back on track for the remainder of the year.
Thanks for reading.
