Welcome to The EX Café April 9, 2017
Good morning EXers! I am getting the coffee going now....It will be just a few minutes...sit down & make yourself comfortable, I will be right back with some more coffee & fixins....
Good Morning Pops!!
I'll take a strong cup of Joe and a croissant. I'll just warm it up real quick.
Off to go shopping with my daughter for her wedding.
Have a wonderful and smoke free day!!
Morning TristanNani, sorry about the delay...I was in back getting the brews together.....try this out for size....
Ok, I ate it all. :-)
What else you got?
Nancy said it's going to be beautiful there today.
Time for that ride?
Good morning JonesCarpeDiem . Yep, the day looks like it is going to be one of those days...I am out of here around noon. How's your weather in Cali?
It's 45 and dark right now. :-)
Suppose to be 69 later, real feel 76.
I remember the haze over the city for most of the morning....is it still like that, now that the smog has been cleaned up, you would think that most of that would have left....
I do miss those wonderful temperatures though....there's alot to be said for being able to wear tee shirts 10 months out of the year....
I wear shorts and sandals 12 months of the year, a T shirt on top and if it's chilly, a sweatshirt. I wait until it's 56 degrees before I take Hoggie out. He caught a field mouse outside yesterday. Things got mousey.
I'm missing my Sebastian already....I turned him over to a really nice lady who wanted him badly. She has a female Pom that looks like his sister and the same age (7.5 years) and pampered daily. With my vacationing and not having anyone here to watch him while I am away, I though that it would be a good fit....He does seem to really like her though. She walked him away without his leash, and he just danced right alongside of her straight to her car....pretty emotional, but I still think it was the right thing to do. We will see....
He will be anxiously awaiting your return.
Not for good Pops ???
Hi Dale just popped in..... hey that ison the cool side for the Callie weather isn't it ? I am happy that today will be in the 60's for the first time this spring in NH !!!
Thanks Pops for the delicious spread of scrumptious looking food, could I get a black coffee please and a frosted cinnamon roll too. I think I'll have a seat by the window this morning and relax here for awhile with you and my friends and fellow Exers and catch up on things on this Palm Sunday.
Good morning MarilynH
give these a try
So Marilyn, do you still have snow in the yard, or has it melted yet?
I took a pic with my tablet of the snowbanks to show you Pops a couple of hrs ago I was sure it posted, anyway I'll try again, this is out the back door, the driveway is bare but this is the snowbanks and the back yard area.
here Marilyn, let me give you some of our sunrise. :-)
Gorgeous sunrise Dale, thanks JonesCarpeDiem
I'll take a pic of the front yard too Pops
Here comes the mud
Good Morning Pops, JonesCarpeDiem, MarilynH and TristanNani. I"ll pour myself of that coffee Pops, sure smells good this morning.
I didn't know Sebastian had gone to a new home. You guys were so close. Big gesture of love on your part, putting his needs first. Glad you know he's happy.
thanks c2q , I will need to adjust, but it is for the best....weather in Maryland is gorgeous today....I was telling Dale, I plan to put my knees in the breeze around noon today...so the brood will be on self-serve for awhile....
The coffee is really good this morning....
Let's not forget to take a ride on Shawn's train this morning @Freedom Train 4/9/2017 , then make your pledge @Take Action in April 2017 with a Daily Pledge to stay Quit ...we need to keep these quits strong....
Hey look what I found at the front door! The card reads,
"For Marilyn, our hero with a thousand days"
Way to go MarilynH
Really? Is this the day for the big comma?! Super congrats to you Marilyn....wowzer! I haven't gotten on the train yet this morning....I have to get over there pretty quick....
Thanks Ken, I really like that comma. Pops
Aaah thank you @c2q, you are sweet.
Good Morning, All!
I'll have a white coffee, and, if you have any, some CHOCOLATE?
I have a sign for the restroom for you (my friend is visiting Japan and sent this pic):
And, no, I have NO idea what that might mean, but hopefully it keeps the toilet paper off the floor!
Thanks for baristing this morning, Pops!
They spelled finely wrong.
Hey, good morning YoungAtHeart ,
here's your latte and chocolate fix
Are you crazy or what? 1200 steps on a bad ankle & sore knee!!!?? You aint right in the head...but then again who didn't know that anyway?
Perhaps that falls under the "easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission?" I AM going to take it easier today. There are a couple of bushes that just need the dead leaves snipped off - not much walking and it's going to be too gorgeous not to be outside (as you well know!). I have trouble just sitting (could you have GUESSED that?), especially when I can SEE things that need to be done. If I get these taken care of, perhaps I can sit on my front porch a bit.
That white chocolate latte must be made in heaven. It looks divine! I'll be out on the sundeck, getting the surprise party set up for . . . . opps.
That sure looks serene....beautiful.....I'm so looking forward to some more sunshine and open air later today.....
If you don't own that shirt, you NEED to!
Good Morning Pops and everyone here I already chatted a bit before I even said hello to all of you and then noticed that today is Marilyn's big 1000 days and she is now a member of the Quad Squad !!!!! I brought a cake to celebrate !!!! Marilyn.H.July.14.14. Sorry I already ate a piece of it Marilyn !!!
Good morning Bonnie,
Yep she is being pampered pretty well today, as she darn well deserves to be! I am in awe of that comma...that is no small feat...great going for her.....Okay, I have to go out for a bit, I'll be right back....in the meantime, help yourselves to the bar.....
Yummy looking cake ,thanks bonniebee ,since you brought it, it's A OK that you enjoyed the 1st piece we can share with all of our fellow Exers here at the ex cafe.
Hey Pops could I get a cup of green tea please ? Since you have to go Pops I will be happy to help myself !I am glad you had some tea bags on hand ! Have a great day everyone especially you Marilyn Do something special for yourself today !!!! Once again I cannot get the @ mention to work !
Good Morning Everyone! Springtime is back in Arkansas! So I am going to try to enjoy some time outside today! Enjoy your day everyone!
Ooooh, good morning, Pops I am on my way to work, could I get one of those white chocolate lattes you made for YoungAtHeart to GO, please. I am hoping my back will make it through this day without me screaming. Have a wonderful Sunday.
Hey Pops, it looks like you should have beautiful weather for your road trip this afternoon. Have fun - you've earned it!
Pops, you got some toothpicks to prop my eyes open with? Not enough sleeeeeeeeeeeeep.
Marilyn of the Thousand Days. Stopped smoking and kept her head!
Good morning everyone I brought my iced coffee with me but I'll take a cinnamon roll and a piece of that delicious cake. I'm happy to see that pops is getting out on that bike today! Also Nancy be careful on your feet take it REAL slow! Marilyn CONGRATULATIONS again on your entrance to the quad squad! Did I miss anyone? I'm here on my dreadful day 4 so I'm sticking real close to the site and what better way to be close than sitting at the cafe with my friends!
Thanks for all of the fun and support Sunday. I truly do enjoy being with my friends in recovery. So we will close for now, but never fear...we will open back up on Wednesday morning, where you will see our brightest star...susan-m, slinging coffee and doughnuts to your hearts content. In the meantime, keep reaching out to help another addict in recovery....remember the life you save just might be your own.
