Today is the last day for my lost words feature – I would like to thank Stephen at http://phrontistery.info/index.html for allowing me to utilize his wonderful site. It has been a learning curve and intriguing to see how many words are no longer used. Some you can understand have lost their relevance but others I think should come back!

I hope you enjoyed the lost words feature and that you will continue to enjoy the subjects for the remainder of the year.

My Monday features from now on will be random – unless someone has a particular topic that they wish me to cover for the remainder of 2016.

Twesome Loop 002

Wednesday‘s will cover reincarnation, life after death and other phenomena and possibly a dash of romance!-  As I will be editing and revising my time-slip romance, The Twesome Loop, which centers on several characters finding their reincarnated soul mates.

Saturday‘s will continue for the prompt contest’s – remember to post your response and then vote for your favorite – chances to win a prize every quarter.

And so to the last lost words:

My sentence: After years of novaturient, I succeeded, with the help of my girls, in operimenting my ugly old wooden kitchen cupboards. Even the albedineity of the primer made me happy. With only the weekend available to complete the project, impigrity was paramount to achieve the patration of a new look kitchen.

What projects have you undertaken in your home that had a time constraint?

And as promised the finished result…I used the colour from the lino accent colour and matched it for the cupboards!
