Tuesday Chatter 85

221851-happy-holidays

If we were having coffee, I find there is nothing more thought-provoking than useful and useless chatter. This is one of those chats.  So fill up your cup, pull up a chair and let’s chat about the good, the bad and the in between.

Let’s start with the bad and get it out of the way. You know, let’s not and say we did. I don’t want my posts to be the bearer of bad news. So moving forward, this is Tuesday Chatter, a weekly event where you can leave the link to your blog giving others a chance to appreciate your talents. Here’s the link for the how-tos. Tuesday Chatter

And now for the good. Well, there’s a lot of good so let’s spread it around. Positive vibes are contagious and easy to share, plus they’re free. And remember smiles are more attractive than frowns.

C’mon dears

Spread some cheer

Make it a banner year!

And the in-between can be anything we want it to be as long as we are amused – agree? But, let’s keep it positive.

Our little family, here in Georgia, are readying ourselves for the holidays. We had a peaceful Thanksgiving at our house – nothing special but nice. We put up our tree last night while enjoying a fire in the fireplace and hot chocolate. I truly enjoy this time of the year as it stirs up fond memories from the past. Especially, while decorating the tree because each piece I hang on the tree has a special meaning.  Now, we can sit back and enjoy while watching our feline stare at it with her big blue eyes. She has a little smirk and a mischievous look in those eyes. She obviously has plans that we don’t yet know about.

Today is a gray day and supposedly, we are going to get that much-needed rain. I took a stroll this morning and stopped to chat with Sally Sue. I noticed that wintry feeling is setting in but the trees seem confused.  Some are still dressed in their fall garb, while others have lost all of their leaves.  Mother nature is very befuddling  again this year, a seemingly ongoing saga.

By the way, we have a trip planned for Dec. 6, which is our wedding anniversary. We are going to Blue Ridge for a couple of days and hopefully the fires have settled down. The fires have made it hard for the business owners and have impacted their tourism. It’s so unfortunate this is happening during one of their peak times of the year.

Moving on to more of the in-between, I find more great bloggers every day. It’s difficult to keep up because there are only 24 hrs in a day to squeeze in all that I want to accomplish. Here is a good example of why I need more hours in a day – Musing of a Puppy Doc (poetry behind a white coat). Phoebe’s blog is just fabulous. Her posts are well written and her site is well structured. You won’t regret stopping by and taking a look.

A traveler. A hugger. A laugherLess a giggler. A 5-foot-5 mound of poofy black hair. An owner of a cat but also kind of a dog person.

Much to our dismay another dry day

Nary a drop of water from the sky

Soon a resource money can’t buy

Wildlife threatened as a write

Seared trees a dreadful sight

Let’s hope a miracle comes our way

-Eugenia

You know life is full of give and take. which I believe giving more than we take deserves considerable thought. In fact, we can celebrate giving on Tuesday, Nov. 29th – Giving Tuesday.

Giving Tuesday takes place on the Tuesday directly after American Thanksgiving, which in turn takes place on the 4th Thursday of November. Giving Tuesday was created to help the “giving season” get started, reminding people that there is more to holidays than consumerism and commercialization.

A stellar idea, in my opinion, and I believe every day should be considered a day to give, rather than just one day a year.

1084beBee is so full life and entertainment. With the consistent swarm of newbees, beBee becomes more interesting every day. The influx of new ideas from all different cultures is astounding. In fact, beBee just added several new Ambassadors to spread the word. We’re becoming quite a team of worker bees, the best part is we’re having fun. Here’s the link if you are interested in joining beBee.com It’s free to join!

I’m Eugenia and it’s time to put a wrap on this chat. So long from this week’s Tuesday Chatter and have a great week!

Cheers!

  2. I see a common thread when you talk about confusion in the weather, the beginning of Christmas (rum-soaking of ingredients, for me) and the feline having plans we do not know of. The turbulence in India after the demonetization, has not settled down.There are new regulations being thrown up every day. It is the only topic of drawing room conversation, even if there is not direct or big impact on the participants. Digital money is catching on, slowly but surely.

    Wishing you a Happy December. Cheers ….

  3. Every day is a day to give
    A day to live
    A way to be
    To others in need
    A ray of hope
    A branch of outreach
    Giving is
    The way I believe!

    *** Bountiful blessings!

    • Yes, it is very pretty and scenic. Remember during your trip to the US and you visited Gatlinburg, TN? Unfortunately, half of the city has burned due to the many wildfires in the area. It’s very sad as the city thrives on tourism. I hope they can rebuild.

  6. Hello there!

    First, I would like to say how much I love the feel of your blog. You give such an intimate feel of fireside chats and community building here–you encourage it, actively–and that warms my heart. The un-selfish and caring nature in how this blog is constructed really is awesome. You’re the first blog where I have gotten this specific feeling in my traversing of the blogosphere, so I tip my hat like…ten times to you sir!

    Second, thank you so much for following me!! I really appreciate it, as I feel I have not been around the blogging arena for very long. If I understand it correctly, I can post my link to my site here for Tuesday Chatter? Really I don’t want to shamelessly self-promote; rather I want to continue to help inspire people and uplift others. Either way, I am really appreciative of your work here, and for you following my writing–it means a lot, seriously.

    It’s a pleasure to meet you, and I am glad you had a good Thanksgiving! Congratulations on your anniversary approaching soon too! What a blessing!

      Yes, please leave your link on Tuesday Chatter because the intent is a way for bloggers to discover each other. There are several bloggers that promote sharing links.

  7. Well then, here is my blog for anyone interested in reading: http://www.f3foranswers.wordpress.com/ !

    The blog is dedicated to three major things that I felt God intended me to write about: faith, fitness and footwork (dance, I am a B-boy or “Breakdancer”). Really I felt compelled to uplift people in any way possible, and provide a means for people to find motivation and inspiration in their every day endeavors.

    Come on through, take a read or two, and feel free to contact me or comment! I would love to meet you all and build more relationships! 🙂
