How Many Words Can You Find?

It's that time again. Last week I mentioned that I would be changing things up with our puzzle this week.

The rules are the same as always. The only thing is that I want to add a twist to see how everyone does. It is going to require complete honesty and getting no help to get your answers. Every week I've had some to work in teams to do the puzzles. And from what I've gathered some have used the online dictionary or some other dictionary to get words.

What I'm asking this week is that all of you work on finding words on your own. Those who have worked in teams can still participate but I'd like each person to do this puzzle by themselves. I'd like each one who has worked with a partner to post their own answers. If the partner doesn't have a blog or sign on name...they can post their answers under the anonymous option....but please put your name at the bottom of your comment so there is a name to give credit to for those answers.

I would also like you to not use any resource to come up with or find words. Each week I get my words on my own. I don't use a partner to help and I don't look in the dictionary to find words. If you participate I'm assuming and taking it that you had no help. If you receive help then you will have not followed the rules for this week. Remember now....I can't see if you are getting help but God can. So He will know if you cheated. I know...I'm being bad aren't I? LOL!!

Let's see how everyone does this week with no help. It may be the most challenging week we've had yet with the puzzle.

With this weeks word I found 49 words. How many can you find? Leave a comment with your answers. Here is this week's word......

Hi Julie!!! This will be a lot of fun and quite a challenge! My son and I always competed with each other and then put our words together! Now we are on our own -LOL! And we could always check to see if words we came up with were actually words - now we won't know!
Can't wait to get started!!

sis. pamela k....I'm glad you are excited about this. I was hoping this twist would go over well with you all. I'm excited to see how everyone does with no assistance whatsoever!! Have fun!!

I like the twist, by the way! However, there are a few that I am not certain of because I couldn't check them in the dictionary. More work for you, I'm afraid.

Have a good day.

You mean I could have had help???? LOL hehehehe

love ya,

Sis. Julie said...

sis. kristi...well...you could have. I don't have help to get my answers. I do as many as I can without the use of a dictionary or anyone helping me. That way I know that I'm not cheating in any way. I'm not saying that anyone who has been getting help has been cheating...but I felt like I was when I would use the dictionary or ask for help. So I thought I'd try it this way this week and see how everyone does....and this may be a new rule added to the puzzle every week from now on. It makes it more challenging for some.
