Shed


SHED ~ a small, slight, rough, or rude building of light construction.
Alteration of Middle English shadde, perhaps variant of shade; from Old English sced; probably variant of scead - shelter, shade.



SHED ~ To cast off naturally ~ to let fall, allow to drop away, let go, discard, dispose of, lay down~ to rid oneself of something not wanted or needed ~ to suddenly drop (a load) on the journey.



SHED LIGHT ~ To diffuse or radiate ~ to emit, send forth, impart, share.



SHED LIGHT ON ~ Make things clear





From the Old English sceadan, meaning to separate, part company, make up one’s mind; via the Middle English sheden (v.), to separate, shed.

I ♥ words. I ♥ "sheds". (Interestingly, our son & grandson just spent 2 nights with us - in our backyard cabin. And tonight, a college friend who we haven't seen for over 40 years is coming and will spend the night there also!)
