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.
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.
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
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.
beBee 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!
