Word of the Week -Week # 27

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.

  1. That’s funny, Ruth. Sometimes things just don’t come together, do they? 😊 Hope you have a be-a-blessing-to-someone kind of week.

  2. Your blogs are a blessing. I enjoy them when they come, but I haven’t actually been keeping track. Retirement life has shown us that time slips away so very quickly. And coordinating mind and body has not always been easy. Don’t worry about missing one post. Love ya!

  3. I recently read that we should “live by grace not perfection” .I don’t know where I read it or who to credit for it. I do think it should be a daily reminder. I love to read what you post, but everyone should have a week off now and then.

    1. Ah very true or perhaps it should say that we “must live by grace” as perfection is something we will not achieve in this lifetime. Thanks for being a faithful reader. ❀


I would love to hear from you.
