caity's marginalia

Since I am doing miserably about posting, I thought I could at least share what I am learning each day. I've decided to pick a quote (or two), a bible verse, vocabulary, and whatever comes to mind, and I hope to do this several times a week...we'll see how that works =)

Oil and perfume make the heart glad, so a man's council is sweet to his friend.
Proverbs 27:9

nabob- a person of conspicuous wealth or high status

larceny- theft of personal property

peplos- a rich outer robe or shawl worn by women in ancient Greece, hanging in loose folds and sometimes drawn over the head

obstreperous- noisy and difficult to control

What a great idea Caity! I think that's great. What's your quote for today though? Or is it just any of those things? I love the vocabulary too. I know you really enjoy vocab. =) Love you.

I love that word 'obstreperous'. It's fun to say, and very easy to apply to several things in my daily life, such as my rambunctious puppy, Brutis, and sometimes my younger brother:-)
Thanks for your post Caity, it's a really great idea and very educational for the rest of us.
With love~Ashley
