Wordy Wednesday

I love to read.  I'm as "bad" about books as I am about fabric; I can't leave a bookstore without at least one new book in hand.  Are you like this, too?

At any rate, things in my life have settled down enough that I've finally been able to start reading again.  Oh Joy!  Maybe it's just 15 minutes here and there, but it makes me so happy.

The sad part is that I now realize I'm not as good at my vocabulary as I used to be.  I'm certain that I'm coming across words I should very well know.  I learn best when I write things down so, along with writing my newly learned words in my book journal, I'm going to share them with you here on Wordy Wednesday.  There may be some weeks when I haven't stumbled across something new, but if I do, I'll report back here.  What do you think? Will you bear with me as I learn a-new?

This week's words are

tumescent: somewhat tumid; swollen; distended
oleaginous: oily
serried: crowded


putti: This one wasn't in my dictionary.  Anyone know what it means?  Melanie, oh wise literary goddess, what is this?
