Word of the week Wednesday

Good day my Wednesday raviolis.  You guessed it, once again, Word of the Week Wednesday rolls around and today's word is:


 A globe is a three-dimensional scale model of Earth (terrestrial globe) or other sphere (round) celestial body such as a planet, star, or a moon.  The word "globe" comes from the Latin word globus, meaning round mass or sphere.  Grandma-ma really likes the word "globe" because it brings so many neat images to her mind.  Here are a few:

A desk globe of the earth.
The moon is also round or spherical and here is an example of a moon globe.

Antique map of the earth globe.  Grandma-ma likes to look at old maps.  I think they are interesting to see how our land has changed over the centuries.  They are like finding hidden treasure...just like a treasure map. You can locate rivers and lakes, trails and highways, cities and vast empty spaces. 

I also like this globe made from two hands held together.  I think this is a nice description of our world.  If we hold hands and work together, we can keep our globe happy and healthy.  There is something unique about this hand globe.  You must look very closely to see what it is.  Here is a hint, can you create this globe with "your" two hands?  If you know the secret, please leave comment and tell grandma-ma what you think it is.

So, remember to use the word "globe" in three sentences today.  Grandma-ma's first sentence is:  "I would travel the globe to visit each of my raviolis just so I could play with them." 

Have a wonderful day my rows and global hugs and kisses to you.  Grandma-ma
