Tuesday Chatter Weekly

If we were having coffee, I find there is nothing more thought-provoking than useful and useless chatter. Hot coffee, so strong you can stand a spoon up in it. The fireplace is aglow and sharing its warmth throughout the room. This is going to one of those chats.

It’s a wet and cold day in my neck of the woods. Not frigid cold but that damp cold that makes you want to sit by the fire and sip on a warm beverage. Add a nip or two of your favorite liquor or liqueur and savor the time well spent.2015-11-23-16-50-40

I was strolling about our premise, taking in the seasonal changes, and it was just last week there were golden leaves adorning the trees. Now that mother nature has undressed the trees, and they seem fragile and sad – but not for long! Soon they will be covered in glistening snow enhancing their beauty as they put on a magnificent snowy display.

Sally Sue noticed the seasonal changes, as well. She wants to hang out in the garage and stay warm and dry.  Since she’s been sheltered for thirty years she’s not too keen on dips and dives in the temperature and snow – no way! She doesn’t seem to realize she’s a car. It’s an ongoing saga with her, you know.

Let’s move along to some fun stuff since I don’t want my posts to put my readers in a funk. December is a fun month, whether or not you celebrate Christmas. There’s an array of events to keep your days filled with cheer, especially if you enjoy freshly baked treats.

Saturday 17th – Maple Syrup Day

Sunday 18th – Bake Cookies Day

Monday 19th – Oatmeal Muffin Day

Tuesday 20th – Sangria Day

And did you notice all of these days feature food or beverage?  On Saturday we can enjoy, french toast, pancakes, and waffles – thanks to the maple trees that supply the sap that becomes our delicious syrup. And here comes Sunday and what a better way to spread wonderful aromas throughout your abode, and that’s baking cookies. Your kitchen will be the center of winter festivities, which the whole family can enjoy.

As we approach Monday, don’t think you’re out of the kitchen yet because I’m ready for oatmeal muffins. Hot, yummy and definitely filling. Oh, and perfect with hot chocolate or my favorite, a steaming hot cuppa coffee.

Now it’s time to sit back and relax. After three days of cooking and baking, it’s time for a reward and a delicious fruity sangria is a perfect choice. Originating from Spain and Portugal, it’s a refreshing iced outdoor treat and when the temp takes a dip, sangria is a great way to warm up indoors. 🍷🍷

11Speaking of Spain, beBee’s been very busy. Postings of holiday photos, articles, and good wishes adorn my feed.

Shown below is a couple of pics of Christmas trees in the lobbies of the hotel where we stayed for our anniversary. I shared these pics on beBee to add to the cheeriness. There is definitely a feeling of holiday spirit on beBee. We bees are all abuzz for the holidays.

Hey, what’s a good word

One that’s not absurd

One that’s meaningful and mindful

One that denotes caring and sharing

One that shows compassion and passion

One that reflects empathy and sympathy

One that’s genuine and sincere

“Kindness”

“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” -Mark Twain

It’s a busy month because we’re getting close to the end of the year and there are just a plethora of things to accomplish. Do you feel things have to be in order at the end of the year, only to start the new year with the same “stuff”? Let me have your thoughts on this, please.

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!

    I have Sally’s cousin in my garage and she is so determined not to go out in the cold that she has somehow managed to make sure the garage door doesn’t work. Wishing you a holiday filled with joy and peace.

    Tuesday the 20th Sangria day, my favorite. Instead of waiting for the new year to celebrate, I celebrate each day as a new day, with so much to be thankful for instead of the same stuff every year😄

    Yep… I’m one of those who always tries to start the new year with a clean slate. Fortunately, that urge appears to be fading with each passing year 😉
    Merry Christmas, Eugenia 🙂 💜 Jackie@KWH

      I can relate. I don’t make a big deal about resolutions, etc. I set realistic goals during the year and take a step by step attitude. 😃
