Using Wednesday's Words

Words for Wednesday is a weekly writing prompt designed to get our creative juices flowing.  This week Granny Annie of 'Fools Rush In' (you can find her in my side bar) is providing the words.  
This is a fun activity...no rules...you can use some or all or none of the words, you can write on Wednesday or any other day, skip a week....whatever you like.  Why not join in?
This weeks words are:
onerous, meme, steadfast, yawp, copacetic, savant
and/or
akimbo, wreak, haphazard, advise, tare and vindicate.
Truly a great selection.

here goes:

Arms akimbo Ally stood and surveyed the wreckage that was once a pristine garden.
The rows, now in a haphazard straggling line and plagued by tares, were a sad sight.
Who or what could wreak such havoc in one short week she wondered.
"I would be vindicated if I were to string the culprit up.  They are well advised to steer clear now that I've discovered this mess."
Faced with the onerous task of clearing up   Ally let out a loud yawp as she stepped on a prickly thistle.  "You would need to be a plant savant in order to sort all these seedlings back into their correct rows." she snarled.
Still, after half a day of steadfast work the garden once again looked copacetic and she was satisfied at last.
Thank goodness.   Grace and her cousin Estelle would be home soon.

  5. Well done Delores, I'd hate to be the one that caused the damage to her garden when Ally catches up with them.

    1. I just hope Ally got all those plants in the right place or Grace will be after her.

  6. Very nicely done Delores. I've set my brain to percolate while I get on with other necessary things.
    Neighbour-in-a-nursing-home needs more warm clothes, and I couldn't find anything that looked or smelled clean in her place, so I'm washing everything before I take her a selection of cardigans and dressing gowns.

    1. I was familiar with all but one of them. Would you believe, I had to look up 'yawp'?

  8. Great job with those words! They were pretty tough this week.

    Hurricane Irma has ruined a heckuva lot of gardens...

    Have a super weekend.
