I’m am starting a new feature on Kate’s Bookshelf —- Word of the Day. Basically it is just words I find fun to say, ones that have great meanings, obscure words, and something I have either read or heard used that I think should be used. So, enjoy, and if you collect words like I do, then feel free to ‘steal’ these from me. I gladly hand them to you.
Brisk : adjective \ˈbrisk\
- quick in manner or movement
- cool, dry and bracing
- pungent, keen, sharp
So, not like the tea… but tea can be brisk. It is that bite that some teas have. Usually for me, a brisk tea means bring on the milk and sugar.
And as for weather… Today was definitely brisk. In Northern CA, and by that I mean far north, none of you namby pamby SanFran Bayers, it was a very brisk, windy day. A severe bite in the air with a definite need for coats. The sky is blue, the air is clear and I’m glad I’m indoors.
So…. There we have our first word of the day.
