This week we are diving into the depths of our thesaurus and exploring the world of synonyms.
Same Same But Different
Your ‘Same Same But Different’ task is to take the five challenge words and NOT use them in your writing. That’s right, you need to dig out your thesaurus and find a synonym for each word instead.
Your words are:
She was no longer youthful (1) but then she wasn’t exactly aged (2) either, and had led them all a merry chase (4) over the years.
Her amber (3) eyes shone with devilment and made her humans scowl (5) with disapproval as once again she had made herself comfortable in their bed!
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
Beautiful cat and a wonderful story.
I got the image from google and apparently, it’s wallpaper!
Aw, what a cute kitty! How is the dog hunt going?
Not too well. We came close, and the pictures sent were cute, but not what we wanted. It was a mixed breed that I was unfamiliar with so we looked it up, and there could be a list of potential health issues. The lady was very upfront and fair though. We’re hoping for another collie cross or GSD.
I would love a little cocker spaniel or King Charles…they are so cute!
A cocker spaniel/collie/springer spaniel/GSD would suit us. Anything too small we’d be falling over, and the house isn’t that big, so a GSD would be our limit for size. Anything in between would be considered of course! Maggie was a sprollie so another of any colour would be perfect.
I had three German Shepherds. One was super tall but I love them. Brody is half GSD and looks like a miniature GSD
How lovely. I’ve always loved the breed and ex-partner’s GSD bonded with me within hours of our meeting. When she died, I got Kizzy, who at five, had been tied up and abandoned on a breeders gatepost. I lost her to mammary cancer in Dec 1990 when she was 10 and like to think she had five good years with me. Hubby would like one, so we have a variety of breeds we’re interested in.
I also had one of my GSDs from a situation where she was tied to a tree for over a year and when animal control said something they moved her to a metal crate on their back patio. It was horrible. She was one of the best dogs!
Kizzy was lovely and her picture is up with Barney and Maggie.
Yes, I remember seeing the picture you had done of Maggie!
My doggie wall.
a lovely story Di! 🙂
