ABC Wednesday ~K
K is for keen. The word 'keen' can have many meanings. If referring to a knife or axe, it means having a sharp edge or point. It can mean quick in seeing, hearing or thinking. It can mean to wail or moan in lament.
For this post, I am using the word keen in the sense of being eager. I am getting tired of winter and am keen to get some nice, warm spring weather. This is what my world still looks like, though we are officially into our second week of spring.
The word keen also appears in the Dictionary of Newfoundland English. In Newfoundland keen can mean "wonderful". In reference to the weather it means 'perfect of its kind and season'. Even though we are still surrounded by snow and ice, this picture was taken on a keen day. It was above zero degrees celcius there were no clouds in the sky and the ice on the pond is melting, making life a little easier for the ducks.
