Save-A-Word Saturday Blog Hop

Today I'm participating in Save A Word Saturday, hosted by The Feather and The Rose. You can read all about it here.

This week's theme is: Roses

A word that is never used, but that I read in a book a long time ago and loved is:

Gambol, v.
to skip or leap about joyfully

My sentence is:

Jan watched me gambol in the garden with a laugh after my roses bloomed for the first time. 

My modern version of this is the 'happy dance'. I'm known for my happy dances which I perform for any success or victory, so it's really no surprise that this would be one of my favorite old and rarely used words.

Do you have a favorite old word that is rarely used and you don't want forgotten? Join this blog hop and share with the world your fabulous word.

I think I saw this not long ago on another blog. This is a weekly thing, then? I'll have to look into it. It's been a while, Sabrina! Hope all is well on your end. :)

Oooh, nice word! I, too, think I've read it somewhere before--ring's a bell. And I think I'll be able to use it now and then, which is awesome.

Thanks for hopping in! :D

Oh, I haven't heard of this! What a fun idea. Great word, Sabrina. And way fun! :D

I know that word, but I've also never used it before! I'd probably also do a happy dance if my roses bloomed for the first time - plants tend to die around me! (Not my fault, I swear!)
