E is for Evening's Endeavours


Source

As I went through my day, entertaining ideas for Friday’s E post, all sorts of exciting and enticing thoughts entered and exited my mind subconsciously.

As the evening wore on I stopped to eat an egg salad sandwich made with extra mayo; the energizing food of this late night erudite egomaniacal writer whose enthusiasm for the letter of the day had swiftly eroded.

Unable to elicit a response from my fingers, hovering over my keyboard, my evening’s endeavours suddenly changed.

I elected to escape, without leaving my cozy environment, by transporting myself electronically into your world.

Excited to see what you’ve been up to I enjoyed, with great enthusiasm, the words and pictures exposed to me on my computer screen. 

I was exceedingly well entertained and thoroughly enjoyed myself; to which I say “thank you”.

Satisfied that I had spent my remaining energy effectively I ended my day with a smile.

☀  ☀  ☀  ☀  ☀

How many “e” words did I manage to use in this post? 

Do you have a favourite “e” word?

Cheers, Jenny

  1. Good to see you back and getting busy with the A-Z.
    As for how many "e" words, way too many to count on a friday night after a couple of wines

    1. Thanks, Mynx - ah, the effects of excessive imbibing on a friday eve! :)

  2. Haha! You used an exuberantly extent of e-words, excessively exceeding the limit to count them all. It was fun to read, and I'm already looking forward to the difficult challenge of the letter Q : )

    1. Hi Martin - how are you? Have you entered that poetry event yet over at Michelle's - I'm working on a piece because it ends on April 30th...I'd love to see your work in her final book.

      As you can read - I had fun with these "e" post - and I'm glad you are an "e" fan too - love the first sentence in your comment - lots of "e's" came to join my party.

      Have a wonderful day! :)

    2. Thank you, I'm fine : ) No, I didn't join it.
      Hope you enjoy your day too and the rest of April.

    1. Dear Lisa - I share your liking of the word elephant - there is something grand about it!

      I'm tickled to know that future sightings of "e" letter words will evoke a thought of me! Yay!

      Hugs to you for stopping by. :)

    1. Ah, Lynn - the count of specific words is not an easy task - I never get the same number twice as inevitably one evades the count...then I must start over and eventually I abandon my efforts.

      I think egg salad sandwiches will be on the menu as everyone is envisioning it today with extreme excitement due to this exposure. Hahaha - my "e" day has not yet ended!

    1. Hi Jackie - welcome to Pearson Report.

      Close enough! (okay, there's 30 + erudite for a total of 31. But who's counting, eh!!) :)

      Excellent "e" word choice - I love eggs in all manner of preparation!

  15. I think I counted 27 here Jenny when I took out the erudite word which is a word that I have literally just learned for the first time. Great post Jenny, love when you do something like this, glad that reading our words made your day and entertained you.

    1. Hi Matt - it's hard counting specific words in a post, isn't it! You're close, as I mentioned in my reply to Jackie, the comment above yours, there are 30 + erudite for a total of 31.

      I'm glad you've stopped by and enjoyed my evening's endeavours. :)

    1. Hi GE - hard to imagine we are already at E - eeek, before we know it this event will have ended and we each will escape after expending such energy! Ah, I'm having way too much fun with my little "e" friend!

      Thanks for entering in the fun by leaving your engaging comment! (okay, now I think I've exhausted the "e's") :) :) :)

  17. I didn't know what the hell I was writing until it was done. Then I threw an E word in. Sometimes you just gotta pull the pin and throw it!

    1. You had me going with the El Camino - and then the way you drive us down that road, metaphorically speaking, was brilliant!

      I had all kinds of ideas for E, but by the time I sat down to write I really found my energy was going in different directions...so I just followed it!

      Sounds like you and are getting the hang of this winging it business. :) :)

    1. I just lit up when this came in my mail - I've been thinking of you and am so happy to have you drop in!

      Isn't erudite such a great word! (I was being cheeky in my use of it) hehehe

      Now, go and find yourself a yummy egg salad sandwich! Hugs to you. :) :)

  19. What kind of bread you using there, missy? Yes, it's me the non-wheat police.

    1. Haha - good eye! Check the source - it's not from my kitchen! My egg salad was neatly rolled up in lettuce leaves...but we won't tell anyone that, 'kay. For the purpose of this post I needed two slabs!

      I type this while enjoying cubed cheese, Kalamata olives, radishes and my awesome yogurt dip (which I whip up with a bit of this and a bit of that - it's never the same twice, good thing)

      I'm going to have to be careful in upcoming posts now that I know the non-wheat police is out and about. :P

    2. I love lettuce wrap sandwiches. My honey went wheat free a couple months ago and he is not on board with that yet, so it's gluten free bread or buns for him. I did make some almond flour bread and it wasn't too bad. Next, I am going to try flax bread.
      I'll be watching.

    3. I just found an gluten free/wheat free bakery; I'm heading there tomorrow morning to see what they have. I'm going to a dinner party where I'll be bringing dessert and I understand they have some awesome stuff. Me and my (off blogger) posse all are trying to avoid the wheat jungle - so I'm bound to be a hit if I bring something we all can eat.

      I'll let you know how it goes. I'm having fun with those lettuce wraps - the other night I had one with ground turkey and a host of veggies...yum! Tell honey-man to loosen up and live on the edge - he'll get hooked pretty fast.

      I'll be looking forward to the stalking... :P like that's a weird thing to say, eh!!!

    4. You may be right. He does eat the flax wraps I make, which I never thought he would. And my veggie burgers, but those with buns.
      I use a lot of oats. I don't seem to have any problems with those. I make flour and use that a lot.
      I hope you find something good.
      Weird? Doesn't everyone like a good stalking?
