What’s UP With You?

The Road UP Ahead

What are you up to these days?  Are your days fun and exciting or routine and mundane? Tell us please, we’d love to hear about it. What have I been up to? Same-o, same-o. I’ll leave that up to your imagination. In the meantime, let’s catch up on UP.  

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used.

It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding up. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing up.

When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things up. When it doesn't rain for awhile things dry up.

Brenda picked up her plate from the table and went outside to eat on the patio.

You'd better go wash up, it’s time to eat dinner.

I woke up earlier than usual this morning.

Now that I’m old(er), walking up stairs is not as easy as it used to be.

Charlie’s mother was not happy about the note from school, Charlie was acting up in class today.

Many people often do not live up to their full potential.

Gina’s new heater stopped working, she had to read up on the correct usage instructions.

I grew up in the tall piney woods of East Texas, where did you grow up?

Spring time is coming up quickly, I can hardly wait!

Sue filled the glass up with cool refreshing ice tea.

The little boy had fun helping his grandfather cut up the wood for the fireplace.

I could dream UP some more uses for UP, but I won’t.  I need to finish UP this post before I bore everybody to death. I could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP for now. My time is UP. It is way past time for me to shut UP

It's UP to you what you do with this post. If you can think of other ways to use UP, bring it UP in a comment. I’ll try to UP the ante on the next go ‘round.         

Thank you for stopping by and for reading UP on UP. Do you think this post is on the UP and UP?


  1. did you mention about throwing up? lol!

  2. You are definitely UP to something. I'm not quite UP to this task of yours. So I'm going to give UP and go to bed.

  3. Well I'm still up so I'm game for it. You didn't mention UP WITH PEOPLE (you meet them wherever you go). See, somewhere in the invention of the English language the word UP (Hah ! Word Up!) took on a life of it's own and we can't live without up even though there is any number of words which could be put to better use than that word.

    Its been a minute since i've stopped by. no excuses really, just haven't blog visit for a minute.

    all that you need to focus on where up is concern is that you get UP able to move about regardless to how slow and that you continue to get UP all on your own.


  5. LOL Leona - reading this blog post lifted my spirits UP lol :) So now we all know what you have been UP to. Stay blessed UP my friend! ;)
