Monday , Monday!

Welcome back to Monday!  I hope that this last week of July is treating you well.  Here, we’re dealing with an invasion of grasshoppers that has apparently made national news.  Slow news day, I suppose, hah!

2. Last week’s challenges:

That’s it for now.  Hopefully you’re surviving the heat if you’re knee-deep in summertime like we are here.  Comment below and let us know what your plans are to make this week the best week ever.

Word of the Day 07/29/19 Orgulous

Orgulous (adjective)
orgulous [ awr-gyuh-luh s, ‐guh‐ ]

1. Archaic. haughty; proud.

or·gu·lous·ly, adverb

Origin: 1200–50; Middle English orguillous, orguilleus < Old French orgueillos equivalent orgueil pride (earlier orgoil < Germanic *urgōlī; compare Old High German urguol outstanding, Old English orgol pride) + -os -ous

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
Big buddy

Big Buddy August

Comment here with the count you can reach in the month (remember to factor in holidays, finals, road trips, pajama days, hangovers, etc). I will check in with you once a week to make sure you are on schedule, to push you if you aren't, and to shake pompoms at you if you are (Well, I'll probably shake pompoms at you either way).

Your count is up to you. There is no minimum beyond what you decide. But Big Buddy will be watching you! If you pledge 100 words/images, then every Monday chime in to tell us that you are up to snuff.

This is not words to be done in lieu of something else. If you have a bingo, or a big bang, or a drabble-a-day, it all counts! Words/images do not have to be posted to count, they just have to be done!

Who's in?
