Welcome to The EX Café Sunday 02.12.2017
GM Susan How r u today?
Great, Lost - but a little sore this morning. The weather was really nice and I got out and jogged 2 miles yesterday afternoon. How about you? Doing well? How's your quit?
Have a cup on the house; nice to see you so early.
I have been lazy because of the cold and snow i have been cooped up and not taking my walks .
Good morning! No important updates for the bulletin board this morning. If anyone has news that they would like to share, please feel free to do so!
Picked some lovely music this morning; Sundays at the cafe' should always be served over easy, don't you think?
Spanish Guitar (I) - YouTube
Morning Susan Morning Lost Lovely music, very relaxing and refreshing!
Morning, Darren. Hope you had a good run. Banana smoothie waiting for you......
You read my mind Thank You so much!
Hi everybody. Just stopping by for a quick holler this morning. We're hoping our company is able to sleep in. What are vacations for? Her normal day starts at 4:00 am.
Today we are going to "our" beach
after a breakfast at home of my husband's famous omelets: pepperoni for the meat eaters,
fresh basil and feta for me.
What are you up to?
Good Morning, All! May I please get an almond latte? I have been helping my Wife who sprained her knee! She gets grumpy when she can't constantly be on the move! Love, Love, Love! It's February!
Good morning, Thomas! Hope your wife's knee heals quickly! Here's your almond latte.... I put a little extra honey in for you.
Morning Thomas. today's barista, Susan, already took care of your order. She is fast on those roller skates this morning, and she's just that good. But I wanted to share my favorite cup 'o brew with my EXbuddy. Brought one for your wife, too.
Does your wife have an evil twin???? I have been laid up with this sprained ankle for FOUR weeks. I, like your wife, get REAL grumpy when I can't be on the go!!!
Please share my sympathy to her! This STINKS!
(although I did get my sewing cabinet, tool drawer, ribbon box, paperwork cubby, password notebook all cleaned out and organized, and started on organizing my trip photos - so the time has not been a total loss)
Thomas sorry to hear about your wife's knee, may it heal fast. You both just sit back and enjoy your coffee. Prayers for the both of you.
Thanks! Maybe it will help her relax into Sunday! We're going to pack up the grumps for the day!
You're a nurse to both of us today, Pati!
Well, guess I'll mosey on outta here this bright and shiny Sunday. Company's up. Sea birds are calling. Have a great day.
Susan, that latte looks amazing! Yum! Thank You!
Good morning Susan and everyone here at the ex cafe, it's another cold one here in the Maritime Provinces at - 15 but it's better than another storm that's rolling in overnight but Mason and all of the kids will most likely get another storm day tomorrow which will make them happy. Hubby cooked me breakfast again this morning but I could handle another coffee and maybe a carrot muffin, please and thank you.
Hey Marilyn! Just baked a batch of apple carrot muffins.
15 is just brutal; we enjoyed 65 degree weather yesterday in Indiana. I think everyone in my county was outside enjoying the glorious weather. It isn't as nice today, but it is not 15 degrees... so, we have that going for us!
Thanks for the coffee and scrumptious muffin Susan, I really like your Temps compared to-15 but it's going to be a good movie day this afternoon.
things freeze in -15
Yippers they do, Dale, I'm so ready for Spring that I'd even help you put on the gate hardware in the mud. JonesCarpeDiem honest.
Good morning all, I made my own cup of coffee, been up most of the night with these annoying and painful leg cramps. I was hoping to get release to start moving during tomorrow Dr's appointment but I am afraid I might need another of these $500 IV again;( to detox my muscles and replenish with electrolytes). So sorry I don't mean to break the nice atmosphere here, I will help throughout the day, but I might not be as fast as some of you are !!!
Here I made more than 1 cup if anyone needs some energy like I do:
Hey Daniela - you've worked hard in the cafe' all week. Rest your weary legs for a bit; let me know if I can get you anything!
Thanks Susan, It's been too long since I could not move almost at all, getting antsy here; can't wait to get release to start going for walks, moving around tables is still OK, and I just enjoy everybody's company...and love is in the air...
Gentle hugs for you Daniela2016 ,rest up today my friend and I hope you will be able to sleep this evening and the Dr's can give you permanent pain relief, yikes on the $500.00 dollars but if you need it then I pray that it works !
Sorry about your bad night. Relax and get well.
Sorry you are not feeling well Daniela2016 thanks for the coffee I will have one . Snow is moving in this afternoon the weather report is predicting another foot of snow for our area ! I am glad this snow is hitting in February rather then January because it is closer to Spring ....hey I am trying to think positive ! Marilyn batten down the hatches it is headed your way and I bet you will be getting over foot of snow !!!! Maine is going to be hit hard with blizzard conditions any Ex'ers in Maine better be prepared !
Another one of those lousy croissant days for me. (I buy the mini croissants in a dozen package.)
The sun is supposed to be out all day here (isn't that why it's called Sunday?) so I may put the gate hardware on if it's not too muddy down the hill.
Y'all have a good smoke free day Ya hear?
Dale - have a wonderful smoke free day as well. Come see me if you need a cup of pick-me-up.
I keep inviting you guys, come for a weekend, yesterday it was over 85 the whole afternoon, just lovely, even the tortoises at the lake got out to warm up already, look at them walking on the board of the lake:
*packing my bags*
Aaah Daniela2016 ,I would love to come, if only I had the big bucks!
Might I suggest you start a "ME Fund" with the money you are saving by not smoking? I wish I had set aside that money from the beginning, but even starting now is not a bad idea! Just think how much you could have in there by now! You earned every penny, so maybe now spend it on YOU!
Did somebody mention sun? AND warmth??? I'm THERE!
In the meantime @Susan, I would love something chocolate. You can find me practicing yoga on the beach veranda.
Thanks for being our hostess this morning!
This warm cup of chocolate decadence will be waiting for you after you complete your sun salutations! What a way to start your morning!
And you are welcome to come Nancy, this time of the year is why we tolerate the burning summers here in Arizona; yes, everything is blooming, soon the desert will be full of color, and hiking before the desert creatures really wake up from hibernating is a joy. I would have never thought cacti can be so colorful and charming...
Good morning all! Hope you have a relaxing Sunday!
I'll bring my own - just here to enjoy the company!
Thanks, Susan - that looks YUM!
Good morning Susan! Thanks for getting this place open for us this morning!
Good morning all! How is every buddy doing this morning?
When you have time coffee black, please
Thanks, Terrie! Happy to pour you a cup.... Enjoy your time at the cafe' today!
great job Susan, Thank-You!

Have any tips to share? Let's hear them!
Good morning, everyone. Just thought I'd share a little of my favorite breakfast food
That looks FANTASTIC! Care to share the recipe? I'm always on the lookout for new breakfast foods!
or a crab claw?
Good morning all. I shall just sit here and drink my coffee and celebrate my 2 year quit! Will be heading off to church this morning then out for lunch with my 9 year granddaughter. Will be back sometime today.
Congratulations to JustSharon for her 100 day quit!
Enjoy your day!
Sounds like the perfect day! Congratulations again on your two year quit!
Here are some of my favorite flowers from my garden for you Trudy tjanddj
Nice flowers, bonniebee
bonniebee Beautiful flowers Bonnie! Thank you!
Good morning, everyone! I slept in this morning and woke up with my cat's butt in my face and her head on my arm. That's always such a terrific way to start the day, especially when she decides to let some.. shall we say.. unpleasant smells flow free. Outside of having my niece or nephew standing beside my bed just staring at me, that's the quickest way to get me out of bed!
I brought some biscuits & gravy if anyone is interested. Today is my office day, so I will be around quite a bit. I might get outside today and detail my van - depends on if Mother Nature is cooperative. It doesn't look like she will be right at this moment. What are your plans for this Sunday?
Hi everyone good morning all !!!! I get so confused I commented on Daniela's comment and then i kept going thinking you all could see it but not sure the cafe works that way so here i am again ! Waiting for the big snow storm to arrive ! I am so envious of all of you Ex'ers who live where the sun is warm !
My daughter had a job in Vegas for awhile. Those folks who have sun now have to stay indoors in our summers because it's too stinkin' HOT for them....so you are just picking your poison!
There is no perfect climate - unless you're talking a Caribbean island - and then you've got those pesky hurricanes with which to contend. Perhaps the California north? Wonder how their earthquake problem is there?
For now, I will deal with the cold and drearies because Spring is so glorious here.....and hopefully my ankle will be healed enough for me to walk in the first buddings!
Daniela2016 and to anyone else that is not feeling well! Prayers! and
Feel better quick!
May I get a black coffee, please?
Here you go, Terrie - with some nice cinnamon rolls to go with it.
I'm here to join you all for a black cup of coffee. Running a little late today as I had a glorious sleep in. Going to just have a relaxing day today. I still can't ask a question here, can anyone tell me how to post a picture?
Yes, of course, you can ask questions here! Click the camera at the top of your comment box,
if you want to post a personal pic from your computer, click brose and pick the pic you want to post. I fit is a pic from googlee or uber, etc click web and paste the address in where it says to. I don't always explain things well, I hope this helps! ~Terrie~
Hey Christine! Welcome! If you would like to post a picture, copy and paste it (using the right then left sides of your mouse) if you are on a desktop or laptop, or download the image if you are on a phone or tablet, and use the camera icon on the formatting bar of the space where you are typing to upload it. Hope this helps!
Here's your coffee...... it's the perfect time of the afternoon for a cup, isn't it?
Good afternoon! The weather has been dreary with rain. I sure could use a nice, hot ,sugar free cocoa!
They must be on break Shawn!
thank you Jennifer! That sure looks good. MMMMM
We are so sorry, I have been out of pocket for a while today, had been up half of last night, made up some this morning, then had to take mom shopping.
I am back now, let me serve you ladies some goodies, back in a minute with fresh drinks and some sweets and little snacks, and they are on the house :-)
And some freshly made juices:
MMMM that all looks good!
If you are not too far Jennifer-Quit and ShawnP we just made some goodies just for you, to say thanks for helping yourselves while we were all away.
Well Thanks! Looks delicious!
You are very welcome, and I hope you had a good weekend!!!
I was exploring ways of posting some encouraging messages for some of our newbies, but other than write a blog and address it to the list you created, or mention the list in the blog, I don't see any other way, am I right?
Well I sent a few direct messages to just say hello and let them know I was thinking of them. Did that this afternoon - got zero replies. A lot of these on the list have not been active at all this weekend. That is not a good sign. We have always had many join and were never active at all.
i am so used to going down my spreadsheet and sending inspiration messages and i am lost haha. I did post one on the train yesterday but not sure how many newbies read it. I want to make sure i am reaching them.
It is why I was looking around try to find a way to address some who have been tired, or bored, or sad, I figured using Jennifer's list might be the closest to reach out to most of them! Yet, it is the weekend, some of them might be away, hopefully we'll see them back tomorrow.
Thank you both for thinking alike, maybe our smart powers in place exproductmgr will come up with some solution for us soon...
Watching the Grammy's, Adele singing :"Hello from the other side"...perfect timing for my comment, HA!!!
Our EX Team is having a lot of these same thoughts, Daniela2016! We'll be exploring lots of different ideas over the next several months to try and get new members more engaged.
Thank You so much!
Daniela, Thank You for jumping in tonight and Thank You Susan for such a great job today! Had a great day with the girls, I just can't get enough of them I will start it off tomorrow early, but may need some help until 7:00am EST. Jennifer and Shawn thanks for staying with us late tonight. Hope you all had a good day!
