Tuesday Chatter 53

203815-Autumn-Leaf-Colors

 

If we were having coffee, I find there is nothing more thought-provoking than useful and useless chatter. This is one of those chats.  The coffee is hot and bold so come on in and relax and let the stories unfold.

The elections in the U.S. are over. I can’t honestly breathe a sigh of relief but I am going to remain positive and hope Americans will unite and move forward. I have read several posts on the elections, not only on WordPress but other social sites, as well. Everyone has the right to voice their views and no better way than the power of the pen. I was impressed by many of those well-written posts that were respectable, civil and well researched. This brings to mind a worthy quote by John F. Kennedy, which I feel sends a very important message to America.

My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country – John F. Kennedy

Moving right along, can you believe it is already the middle of November? Where has this year gone? This has been a monumental year, to say the least. And you know, it ain’t over yet.  As we approach the holidays, let’s reflect on family and friends and the true meaning of the season. By the way for those of you that write novels, November is Novel Writing Month! Don’t let November go by without taking your greatest novel idea and turning it into a reality! Let your talents be known.

You know, while we were traveling, I fell way behind and had to catch up on my blogging, beBee, LinkedIn and a whole bunch of other things. My poor hand, that I fell on, is on the mend, but it still slows me down.  With that said, I am determined to move along as I get better each day. In fact, I added another challenge to my event list.

I am joining in The Writer’s Quote Challenge, a weekly event. Each Thursday, the hostess(es) will post a weekly prompt. Either make up your own sayings or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration. Last week’s event can be found at https://haddonmusings.com/2016/11/10/all-new-writers-quote-challenge/. I enjoy these events because it is a way to engage with others and have fun.

This brings to mind what better blogger to feature than Bernadette and Haddon Musings. I can’t say enough about this blog – it reminds me of a variety show because she offers something for everyone to enjoy. Stop in and say hi to Bernadette. haddonmusings 

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

Oh Mr. supermoon

Please light up my room

I promise as I sleep

there’ll be ne’er a peep

Even deep in slumber

there’ll be no sawn lumber

Just knowing you’re near

gives me no reason to fear

Oh, my man in the moon

you make me swoon

You’re presence in the sky

gives me a natural high

I may seem a little crazy

yeah, my mind a bit hazy

But I feel the time is nigh

to know the reason why

That cow jumped so high

-Eugenia

Hip hip hooray, today is Pickle Day!

It’s Pickle Day, everyone! Did you forget? Oh, then you must think you’re in a right pickle, but don’t worry. Be as cool as a cucumber, because there’s still time to munch on some pickles, yet.

No matter whether you like Gherkin, Dill, Lime, Bread-and-Butter, Branston, Cornishon, Hungarian, Polish, Danish or Swedish pickles, made in either in brine or vinegar, you can be sure these fermented morsels are so much more than mere hors d’oeuvres.

Hey, don’t forget to join in on Tuesday Chatter, a weekly event. Stop by and leave a link to your blog or a favorite post for others to enjoy at Tuesday Chatter.

OMW, what to do! I almost left out Sally Sue! You may not care but she does. In fact, we’re going to get out and around today, depending on the smoke in our area. We’ve had some pretty rough days because of the smoke from the wildfires in North Georgia. Our fav city, Blue Ridge is sitting in a cloud of smoke as I write. It’s a bit scary and I feel sorry for the folks that live in the threatened areas. Let’s pray for rain – perhaps a rain dance will help?

Cheers!

  4. After reading this, I would definitely love to sit down with you over a cup of coffee to pick your mind and ask questions. I felt like was sitting across from you having an actual conversation (minus the coffee :)). I would also like to know more about beBee, once I get to work this evening I’ll refer back to here to get the link so I can some how get involved. I hope your hand is doing better, you should be more careful and please take it easy. I enjoyed this post and look forward to reading many more. Thank you for this positive shot of energy espresso. Peace and love to you.
