I didn’t go for a walk today because it was raining and foggy. If it had just been the fog I would have gone for a stroll but the rain made me decide to stay indoors and finish the little bit of Christmas decorating for this year. I didn’t set up the Christmas village because when I thought about it I realized if I pulled it out and put it up I would have to take it down and put it away again. That made the decision for me. Maybe next year.
While I was busy with some housekeeping I got to thinking about my word for next year. Every year I have a word that I ponder and study and learn about myself. I don’t really choose the word it is given to me over a space of weeks. Words from the past have been wait, purity, patience and for this year, change. Usually, I have the word by early November but I don’t have a word yet. I wonder when I will know and what it will be?
Thinking about words made think about my In Other Words challenge to write a story or poem of 5 lines or less using the word turkey. No, I don’t think, in fact, I am sure that won’t be my word for 2017! But I did come up with a poem.
Searching for a prince I haven’t kissed any frogs
But there were a couple of dogs
And to be honest a turkey or two
But I am thankful that over the years
Most I have kissed were sweet lovable dears
So, there you are, my Tuesday Chatter and In Other Words for this week.
