Morning, RachelMB. Great to see you this morning. Please take some strawberry pancakes with you, on the house. We have all these scrumptous strawberries today that Nestly brought in yesterday. Thanks Jenn.
I just wanted to swing by the ex cafe to see who's hanging out this morning and wish each of you the best day possible.I'm on my third and final coffee and figuring out what to do first to get my day started.
Good Morning to those at the EX Café today! Tomorrow will be King Cake but today I am having beignets and coffee!
Hi Mortalzeus. Whoa, those look delicious. I didn't even see you in the kitchen. Thanks for whipping up such a treat for us. I'm looking forward to your King Cake tomorrow!
I am sneaky like that
I entered you in the contest . . . hope that's okay, Ninja Barista
Good Morning All!!
I'll have an extra large coffee to get my day moving. Hectic weekend and plenty more coming while planning for my daughters' wedding. I think I will take the honeymoon after the wedding just to rest and relax.
Hi Nancy TristanNani! I've got just the thing for you. A little cinnamon on top for extra energy.
Hi MarilynH I got you this ... maybe you can use it to help figure out your day!
You are so thoughtful Patti, thanks so very much. c2q
c2q-thank you for the pancakes! They are amazing!
Good morning EXers! Happy Monday! I'm EXcited today because I'm officially 3 weeks free!
Headed out for a walk with the pups. I've got my weight in strawberries to work off. Everyone, help me eat them, the girls want an excuse to go back and pick more.
Now that's what I call breakfast. Thanks, Strawberry Picker Extraordinaire!
Thanks Nestly ,please tell your girls thank you for the scrumptious strawberries!
OMG! Too cute!
Good morning compadres
With my Barrett's I have to eat my last meal by late afternoon so that puts breakfast 11-12 hours away.
Breakfast is when I can eat things that would keep me up at night.
It was pouring rain when I got up at 3am so I had homemade stew with extra carrots.
and some of that boston creme pie. :-)
Dale . . . you said the pie word . . . making my day again
Thinking good thoughts for you JonesCarpeDiem ,enjoy the scrumptious food while you can now before you're back to pureed food for a couple of days!
GM, c2q and everyone! I thought I smelled chocolate!
I'll take a bit of that and a coffee with milk, please. Maybe also a small bowl of those wonderful strawberries to make my breakfast healthy (hahahahahahahaha!)
My, what a pink nose you have YoungAtHeart. Have you been sniffing too close to those gorgeous berries?
And your coffee, Ma'am.
The pie shop is saying it's national strawberry day.
Who woulda thunk it.
And who knows what treats lurk in the heart of an EX? The pie knows
See you folks in a bit. I'm heading over to pledge The Daily Pledge February 2017 and then catch the train FREEDOM TRAIN 02/27/17
Thanks TerrieQuit and YoungAtHeart
Good morning, everyone. Nothing for me this morning, thanks. Just wanted to pop in. It's a dreary day here, but I think I'm going to head outside and start cleaning up the deck & backyard for spring adventures. I'll be around for a while because I am expecting a phone call. Hope ya'll are having a great day!
Hi Whimsy3715. sounds like a plan. Our deck could use some sprucing up too. Think I'll head out back. In the meantime, the Cafe is
I stayed up late last night after working during the day so I am not planning ANYTHING today, I am going to lounge around on this cool and cloudy day and attempt to lure one of the cats to do the same thing on my bed. I would love a tall glass of juice, will skip the coffee, I just might want to nap. Guess this is self serve time...alrighty, I will fix myself a big glass of juice and now that I am upright, I guess I will add some toast.
Have a wonderful Monday!
Hi Ellen elvan. Sorry I was out sweeping the deck when you came in. Did you get that juice?
I DID but I'll take this glass too, it's much prettier than the one I poured for myself.
Good morning! Time for a good cup of coffee! I think today I will go and splurge and buy me a bouquet of flowers. I need some spring in the house! I have been back in my kitchen trying out new recipes again thanks to Dale's reminder how cooking can be a distraction....and I can still hear my husband say "I am not going to try that! followed by - that's pretty good, you need to make that again. I miss him. Stay smoke free. Save a Life - Let it be Yours.
Going to go buy me a bouquet of flowers.
Awww, Trudy, I'll bet you do miss him. I think a bouquet of flowers is a wonderful idea. My sister used to buy herself big bouquets of spider mums because they lasted so long...they were always SO PRETTY!
Spider mums are so pretty! I know it will take me forever to decide what I want when I see all the beautiful flowers. I can't wait until my tulips and what ever else survived come to bloom! I feeling better already!
So glad to hear that. I have a bunch of daffodils in bloom, they are always so happy looking. These survived the excavation of the lawn after the house burned so they are coming up in places where I did not plant them...nothing like a spring surprise that is a HAPPY one!
Thank you Dale. I will still be in the kitchen trying new recipes, I enjoy doing it!
Trudy tjanddj - I found these at the front door of the Cafe, with a card for you
your EXbuddies xxx

Thank you Nancy.
It's 230 PM and I'm still drinking coffee. Time for more. Hope you start to feel better Trudy
