WORD OF THE DAY

Ok this is such a pretty word.  Let me see your sentences.  Leave a comment using the word in a sentence;

penelope (puh-NEL-uh-pee) noun

  A faithful wife.

[From Penelope, the wife of Odysseus and mother of Telemachus in Greek
mythology
. She waited 20 years for her husband’s return from the Trojan
War
(ten years of war, and ten years on his way home). She kept her many
suitors at bay by telling them she would marry them when she had finished
weaving her web, a shroud for her father-in-law. She wove the web during
the day only to unravel it during the night. Here’s a painting of Penelope
unraveling her web: http://www.getty.edu/art/collections/objects/oz930.html ]
