Hi folks! It’s Tuesday afternoon, and this is the first chat for my Tuesday Chatter Weekly event where you can chat about anything and everything. Please stop by and visit me at Tuesday Chatter for the guidelines.
This is the first day I have seen the sun in days. I live near Atlanta, and we have been inundated with rain for 2 weeks.
So, what to do on these gray days? Going outside to run errands is undoubtedly a bad hair day! Yikes! Also, have you noticed how people drive when it is raining? OMW! Do they act like this when it is not raining? It’s only water folks! You’re not going to melt! Hey, I am already in this parking space – excuse me but only one car in a space, please!! The drama of it all makes you want to order everything, including groceries, from Amazon.
While I am on the subject of rain and Amazon, and since we are amidst seasonal changes, I get this urge to shop online. Does this happen to you too? Please tell me it does and that I am not alone in my craziness.
I made a rule for myself, some time ago, if new stuff comes in, old stuff goes out. Hmm, I can’t say that I always abide by this rule, but, I make the effort.
Well, while online, I fell in love with some stunning stuff, which persuaded me to take inventory of my closet. Most of my clothes are to my liking but I enjoy adding new items to my wardrobe to make it stylish and fun. I may be retired, but I’m still alive and kicking, and love clothes. Plus, it’s fun to create different looks by accessorizing with scarves, hats and interesting jewelry.
Jeans are a staple for me because they go with anything and can be worn in any season. My other fav is leggings. There are so many ways to put together looks with jeans and leggings. Also, both are great for traveling because of their versatility.
If you cleaned out your closet, what would you donate or throw away? I just filled a bag, with “I am so tired of this” or “it has seen better days”, clothing, etc. I’m making a sincere effort to stick to my rule and feel I deserve a pat on the back. Thank you.
Hey, if you’re suffering due to a rainy, dismal day, try a Hot Buttered Coffee. It will make for a warm and cozy day.
Hot Buttered Coffee Recipe
1 heaping tablespoon of Kerry gold Butter
2 cups of coffee
Optional: 1 tablespoon of agave
and/or 1 tablespoon of coconut oil*
Heat the container you are going to froth your coffee and butter in with hot boiling water. Dump the water.
Put the coffee and the butter into a hot mug or hot blender. Wait 10-15 seconds for the butter to butter melt. If adding sweetener, add it before blending the beverage. Froth the coffee (either with a hand-held frother or a blender). Serve immediately.
It’s time to put a wrap on this chat. See you next week.
