Welcome to The EX Café Tuesday 02.14.2017
Good morning, Pops! Happy Valentines Day! Thanks for opening the Cafe this morning! I have been enjoying the self-serve coffee bar! Have a great day! ~Terrie~
Good morning Terrie and a great happy valentines day 2 U!!!! what you having this morning?
Just a cup of strong black coffee, please! I am going to hang out for a few and see if any newbies cone into visit ~Terrie~!
Sorry 4 the wait, I am pretty busy setting up this morning
Is that your famous cowboy coffee I see? Yum. I do see a line forming at the Cafe door . . . . I'll help with orders if things get out of hand.
Morning Pops! Looks like you have an admirer. These came for you.
Oh, I almost missed the card. It says,
"Roses are metal
I want some coffee
and a croissant too."
Must be that crazy coffeeshop poet I've been hearing so much about.
c2q those are very cool!
Let's roll baby!!!!
I thought that I'd put these out early for our chocoholic Nancy YoungAtHeart because she can get pretty cranky if she has to wait too long on her fix....
Happy VD to you, Pops (oh, my - that doesn't sound right, does it?!!) tee-hee!
Thanks for the chocolate. I suppose I could share....................................OK - everybody gather round and enjoy some!
Good morning to all of my EXer family, and come in and enjoy some Valentines Day Banter with Pops!!!!
Lest we forget, Pops likes to serve his famous "cowboy coffee" as well...
Very cool card too!
I was thinking about a thought for today...
I thought that I would make this a no whining zone
"Only solutions are spoken in here"
YAY!!! Pops I love this!!! Don't see problems...see situations which need a solution!!!
Happy Valentines Day!
I do love holiday celebrations, I am going to be setting out bouquets of roses for all those interested
Enjoy the Day!
If that doesn't bring em in, then nothing will. How r the babies this morning?
Babies are playful today and ready for the holiday!
great! btw, I brewed up some of that Cowboy Coffee of mine and I brought out your mug...;-)
Nice, I am ready for the strong stuff now
Now this looks decadent!
for my non caffeine drinkers, there is always orange juice....
I agree, Pops! No whining it is. People can always step over to the Whiner's Corner if they really need to get something out of their system. (It does happen sometimes.) the WC is in the back, down that unlit hall .... I think you need a key.
A very good morning friends, schools are cancelled again to get the roads cleaned up the storm yesterday, hopefully the kids can exchange their Valentines tomorrow. I forgot to put in my blog this morning that today is 6 yrs since I quit drinking and it's 31 months since I quit smoking! Life really does get easier and easier without the crutch of smoking and for me being a recovering alcoholic, it's super fantastic getting rid of that crutch as well, one precious day at a time will give us a beautiful life of Freedom! Could I get a coffee please and a side order of whole wheat toast, thank you....
Good morning Marilyn! and thanks for dropping in. Let me serve up some toast & coffee for you....
Congratulations Marilyn on your 6 year of being free of alcohol and your 31 months of your quitting smoking! What a wonderful Valentine's gift you have given yourself. Caring for your own heart so that you may continue to give to others.So precious.
Thank you Trudy for your congratulations it means so much and I am so happy to be FREE from both of those horrid addictions and I will continue vigilance while enjoying the Freedom.tjanddj
Hello all! Pops, I'm a sweet and creamy coffee drinker. Do you have some Hazelnut coffee and/or creamer back there?
Sending love out to all the EXers here.
You are the folks that got me to where I am today (1289 DOF)
Love ya........and I'm not gonna whine all day today!
No money to do that!
Let's see if you like this Atole Hazelnut....
Good morning everyone and Happy Valentine's Day! I love hanging out here every morning with such great friends! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
Pops-thanks for opening up the café-I will take a cup of black coffee when you get a chance please
Mortalzeus-if you have any extra flowers I will take some.
Just for you gorgeous!!! Enjoy....
Looks like Darren has his hands full right now...but I found these in the walk in this morning....
Enjoy your day, everybody! Stay safe. Good to see you! I've got to run.
you too Pati,
Thanks for helping me open this joint this morning.....
Good Morning All - and Happy Valentines Days!
Thank You Jennifer Lovely looking display!
Thanks Pops and Mortalzeus you guys are awesome! Have a wonderful day!
Thanks Pops for the chocolates, for hosting today and for all your good work on the site.
I'll take some coffee with milk to go with my chocolates!
You are so very welcome buddy.....
Thought you guys might also think this is a good idea!
That looks great, omg there is always room for bacon!
Nancy, you melt my heart
So check it out EXer family, somebody left the barn door open & all of my barn cats got out and I have to go out and herd them back up again. So help yourself for awhile, and I will be right back...
Be right back.....
When you finish with you coffee come and celebrate today's milestones. missdiane 300DOF and Nyima_1.6.13 1500 DOF they deserve the kudos. Come ride the Freedom Train 2/14/2017
Happy Valentine's DAY to all our Friends at EX:
And since we are all away, we figured you would like to help yourself from the chocolate fountain:
Daniela, that looks good
Be still my heart! I wonder if there is a way to let the fountain just overflow into my cup???!!!!
Of course Nancy, just bring your biggest cup and place it under the flow, we have plenty of supply to replenish the fountain. I might need some too...went to the Dr yesterday and told her I have some incredible cravings for sugar, especially chocolate; she told me the levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) are the highest she's ever seen and that is causing me the cravings...and gave me something to lower the levels, but I just started it today; I can join you in having a cup of pure chocolate from the fountain!!!
I am not sure what Pops has for lunch today, but I was kinda thinking Surf n' Turf ?
Just a thought
Surf & Turf sounds totally mouth watering to me Mortalzeus
Happy Valentine's Day to each and every one of you! Tomorrow is my big day! I'm actually EXcited about it! See you all tomorrow, enjoy the chocolates and roses! What a great holiday!
All right crew!!! Way to go team....it's so nice to know that my back is covered...thanks so much
Thanks, not all of the cats would come quietly...
Today could be your Day! If you haven't already Quit you can decide to jump in and Live Free! Smoke FREE!
Happy Valentine's to ALL!
May I please have a strawberry Mocha? What's Valentine's Day without chocolate?
Sorry about the wait
Morning Pops! Happy Valentine day everyone! Pops could I please have a black cup of coffee to wake me up?
Enjoy the day everyone!
Good morning to you Christine,
Enjoy the coffee, and don't forget to grab some chocolates while you are here....
Hi everyone. Just wanted to say Happy Valentines Day to everyone. Have a great smoke free day!
You too Paul, great to see you in here....settle down for some coffee and banter....
Good Morning! Happy Valentine's Day! What a wonderful gift we have given ourselves for our own hearts. The gift of the quit. I hope many more will join us and give this smoke free gift to themselves. Save a Life - Let it be Yours.
I will be spending Valentine's Day with my son this afternoon. It will be spend at the Ivy Cancer center in Seattle but hey it will be time shared together! Today hopefully we will have a better understanding of his last MRI results. Staying positive staying strong.
Enjoy your day!
Thoughts and Prayers this day! I feel your strength!
Sending good thoughts and prayers up for you and your son for strength and healing tjanddj (((big hug)))
I just love this list of great things to strive for....I thought you might like to read it while you are sipping your coffee today..
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by....
Congrats Marilyn, you've made such huge progress!
Thinking of you Trudy and praying for good MRI results for your son and you, what a nice Valentine's present that would be!
Hello EXers and welcome to the Cafe' I will invite you to the self service bar for awhile, as I have to make a resupply run. I will be out for about an hour. Please help yourself, and possibly keep an eye out for any other members that might need a little help on this Valentines' day.
Happy Valentine's Day, just finished my 3 step on the patch 2 days ago, felling really good today. I moved to another chair for my coffee this morning, and did fine. Have a great evening, and my love be in the air.Helen.
That's "GREAT" news on the patch! Keep it looking forward...are you feeling less pressure these days? If not, trust me...the urges will begin to subside quickly as you begin to accumulate more days without smoking....just keep it up, and blog as often as you feel like. I would like to point out though...successful quitters read as much as they blog. It's very heard to listen and learn when you are the one doing the talking. Not saying that you are either, it's just something that I personally had to learn for myself. I learn far more when I am sitting back and "quietly" listening" to my elders....
God bless you and thanks for dropping in.
So what it be like this early in the evening!? I am getting bored looking @ a blank screen...geez, I need to get something going here on the home front this evening.....
So, does everybody know about the next gathering of EX members coming up in May? I will attempt to plug it here. The group is called EX 5. We are meeting up in Virginia Beach on the weekend of May 19th through the 22nd. the link is: EX Weekend 2017 - Virginia BeachEX Weekend 2017 - Virginia Beach Wow! that actually worked...I am starting to feel like maybe I am becoming an EXpert @ this Jive business lol. Anyway, check out the link and hook up with Strudel for all of the particulars. I personally am anxious to get there...as of today, it is 93 days away. I actually entered the date in my countdown app on my phone, pretty cool huh? I am so into this new stuff, I'm like a kid in a candy store!!!
I would have loved so much to make it...but so far the Dr. did not release me for a quick stroll in the neighborhood, let alone travel so far...hopefully she'll fix me up on time for me to make it.
You guys will have a great time, I just know it, look at Pops...
Kid in a candy store, and the candy is a new smoke-free day!
Found this picture of all our EX hearts beating to the same smoke-free drum! Happy St. Valentine's Day to Ya'll!
You guys are a riot!
Many might be out already, just wanted to say I hope you will all have a great evening, don't forget to party (no or limited alcohol please), roses are allowed!!! Pops I am sure you can do it, what do you say???
Haha! Too funny! I love it Nancy!
Happy Valentines Day Everyone, How is everyone tonight. Love the dances
Happy Valentines day POPS!
