Word of the Week: solatium

Book Club Update: I read the first page of Jon Acuff’s Start and burst out laughing for a full minute. I don’t do that often. Have you started laughing yet? If not, go here to, of course, Start! 

Compassion Counseling Center Update: We now have 9 clients, but I would love for us to have even more clients, so please keep praying that we will find the people who need our help. We have dealt with abuse, self-injury, relationship difficulties, and new school adjustment issues just to name a few. We are also about to offer our first group for premarital counseling!

Good morning, Word Lovers! Last week’s WOW was crepitate. Merriam-Webster says that the definition of crepitate is to make a crackling sound. If that’s the case, then my joints crepitate all the time. (This WOW may become a new regular in my vocabulary!)

This week’s WOW is solatium. Here are my guesses for it:

solatium (sō-ˈlā-shē-əm) 1. a solar planetarium 2. a solarium atrium 3. the feeling a homeowner has after selling a lot in a garage sale.

What’s your guess for solatium? Go here to submit your guess.
