Wishful Thinking: Bivouac

I'm gonna start a new word of the day deal, I think. Or at least try. We all know that I'm terrible at following through on daily writing after I publicly commit to it. I did the 30 days of Truth challenge in oh....60 days? True Story.

 I'll be using dictonary.com (a site we frequent here!) for the daily word, and then using it in my own sentence. 


Today's Word is Bivouac.

bivouac


BIV-wak, BIV-uh-wak \  , noun;

1.An encampment for the night, usually under little or no shelter.
          1.To encamp for the night, usually under little or no shelter.



"We drifted to sleep in our bivouac made of earth, blanketed by only the stars..."
