Hi ladies, here for lunch, and I'm starving. I think I'll have two eggs over medium, hash browns, sausages, and an english muffin with an iced cafe mocha. I'll also have some of those cinnamon buns. Had a great afternoon in the pool yestarday. Shall we do it again? I think the boys will set up the outdoor pizza oven for tonight's dinner.

I'm going to join you in the cyber-pool. After that, I'd like some grilled shrimp with lemon, curried quinoa salad, lettuce and tomatoes. I'll have a tall, cool glass of skim milk to go with that. Then dessert...pouding chomeur (a kind of French-Canadian caramel sponge pudding, very rich). Thanks!

Mm, biscuits sound good. I like them with lots of butter and jam and served with ham and eggs. And since I’m at the cybercafe I’m going to order that. I suppose I’ll have to get out of the cyber pool and dry off first.

Hi Linda, here for lunch and I am starving today. For lunch today I'm going to have the fried chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy, and baked beans, and biscuits. A coca cola would be perfect with that. For dessert I'll have some chcolate chip cookie dough ice cream and an iced cafe mocha. I think I'll spend the afternoon in the cyber pool in the sun since we don't have any in the real world. today. Very cloudy and rain out.

I’d say I’m jealous, Zzyyggy, but 58 degrees is COLD to me! I’ll have some of that french toast you mentioned. Yum. Mm, iced mocha cafe sounds good, too. We’re having another gorgeous day. It’s 72 degrees, but we’re heading up to 80 degrees for the next five days.

Hi Linda, Coming in a little late because of our lunch. It was good. I had the cheeseburger and fries, and haven't had a restaurant cheeseburger in ages. That was so good. The breakfast sandwich at Sneakers is pretty famous, everyone raves about it. I haven't had it because I usually have their french toast which is really good, or their two egg breakfast. It wasn't that bad eating outside either. There was a breeze blowing, but it hadn't started raining yet, and it wasn't too cold either (58 degrees), I was dressed in layers. I'm full now. I think I'll just have some iced cafe mocha's and homemade chocolate chip cookies here on the terrace. I'm also pretty tired out from my early morning swim. Maybe I'll order some dinner later on.

Zzyyggy, I googled Sneakers Bistro. Oh, yum! They have a breakfast sandwich I would love. Too bad I can’t meet you there. I figure it would take about 20 hours to drive there, but since I find anything over 20 minutes in the car unbearable, that would never happen.

We went to a restaurant and ate inside about two months ago. There was hardly anyone there. All the restaurants around here do takeout and I assume that’s true everywhere nowadays. Even with takeout it’s not something we do very often. Most things I can make myself and the menus are pretty limited, as well. Huh, not as good as the cybercafe!

Oh, look, Francois made some mini blueberry pancakes just for me. Pass the syrup, please.

Hi Linda, here for Sunday brunch. I'm going to have a huge platter of blueberry pancakes with sausages, and an iced cafe mocha. I'd love some of those cinnamon buns as well. I'll deffinitely join you for that Linda. It's so nice at the cyber cafe on the terrace. Tomorrow I'm going over to Sneaker's with my sisters and brother for an outside lunch. Hopefully it doesn't rain, and not that cold. I haven't been to a restaurant since before the pandemic. I'm wondering how that will be. We'll let you know.

Good Sunday morning to the cybercafe! Viktor has coffee and tea set out on the back porch this morning. While I can’t actually eat ham, I can certainly enjoy ham here, so I’m going to have ham and eggs with a pumpkin cinnamon bun. Zzyyggy, I’m seeing recipes for pumpkin cinnamon buns at all my favorite foodie websites. It’s nice to know it’s out there. I’m willing to share the carafe of cafe mochas if anyone care to join me.

While it’s a lovely warm morning at the cybercafe, it’s a chilly 42 degrees in Monroe, NC this morning. The heat came on this morning downstairs, but the thermostat upstairs isn’t working properly. Thank goodness Sweetie is an engineer and able to fix anything. Truly, I don’t think there is anything he can’t do. I’m very fortunate, indeed.

Hey, Zzyyggy. I got so little sleep last night I feel like a zombie. I tried napping but our neighbor decided to mow his lawn right outside my window. I keep nodding off sitting up. That is so uncomfortable.

Viktor, I’ll have fried chicken, tuna noodle salad, and baked beans, please. And pumpkin pie and an iced cafe mocha for dessert.

Hi Linda, thanks for the flowers. That masseusse was a good idea. I may need another one today. Just got back from swimming, and being out in a cold rain. I'm warmed up now, but I may just nap all afternoon long. I'm also starving. For lunch I'll have the large plate of fried scallops with french fries, and baked beans. A coca cola with that please. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies, and an iced cafe mocha. I think an afternoon of reading, and munchies on the terrace is in order especially in the cyber sun.

Zzyyggy, you need to see the cybercafe’s masseuse for a nice relaxing massage after a hard workout.

Hi Linda, Just came back from physical therapy and I'm pooped, and starving. For lunch I'll have the fried chicken dinner with mashed potatoes, gravy, corn on the cob, butter, and a few biscuits with a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some brownies, and an iced cafe mocha. That takes care of the hunger. I think I'll spend the rest of the afternoon on the terrace reading with plenty of munchies, and sweet tea.

Good afternoon, Zzyyggy. Ah, yes, housework. You know the quote “... nothing is certain, except death and taxes?” Ben Franklin was wrong. He should have included housework. Of course, while death and taxes are certain, housework is never ending.

An afternoon at the cybercafe on the terrace sounds wonderful. We’ll take a walk through the orchards and pick some Granny Smith and Braeburn apples for baking and a few Pink Lady apples to eat. Francois has been talking about making apple cake with brown sugar icing and he’s going to make some strudel, too.

I’m in the mood for soup. We’ve still got bean soup in the fridge, but the chicken lentil soup we made last week was delicious. I’m ordering that and iced tea.

Hi ladies, Elektra, Darcy welcome to the cyber cafe. Love your orders. I'm tired hungry, and soar right now. Just went swimming, and grocery shopping. For lunch today I think I'll have the rotisserie chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, rolls, corn on the cob with lots of butter and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some apple pie with vanilla ice cream, and an iced cafe mocha. Then I'll take a nap on the terrace, or do some reading with lots of ice tea, and munchies.

Hello, Elektra and Darcy. Sorry I missed you, but I know Viktor took care of your orders immediately.

I think I will sit in my recliner with Useless, the cat, and read my book. I’ve ordered a pot of tea and have my usual bucket of M&M’s. Viktor even started a fire in the fireplace. In the real world it’s 70 degrees and stormy. The tornado watches have expired and it’s no longer pouring rain. Now it’s just drizzling. I think I’ll spend tomorrow morning yachting around the cyber pool. I’ll get to wear my captain’s hat and no one will notice my frizzy hair from all this humidity.

Here’s some more iced cafe mochas. I snagged a carafe and another basket of mini pastries on my way out to the terrace to join you, Zzyyggy.

Brr, 37 degrees is downright cold! Luckily we’ve got the cybercafe where the weather is alway lovely unless we don’t want it to be. Hey, a girl needs a good snowstorm every once in awhile. We finally got rain—an inch, so far, with more to come.

Sweetie made black bean soup last night at 9:00 pm. The soup is great, but I wish he’d cook earlier in the day. It’s a good day for soup. Maybe Francois will make some bread to go with the soup. Oh, yum, virtual bread. Hmm, virtual apple pie would be good, too, with cinnamon ice cream and caramel sauce.

Hi Linda, Here for Sunday brunch this morning. I am starving again. I'll have the scrambled egg bake with lots of those mini pastries, hash browns, homefries, bacon, english muffins, and iced cafe mochas. Just keep the mochas coming. I'll also have some of those cinnamon buns as well. It was 37 degrees outside this morning when I woke up, dropped from 71 last night. We had some pretty severe thunderstorms last night with some rough wind, but after yestarday's humidity, today feels pretty good. Sunday brunch on the terrace

I helped Francois make tortellini sausage soup this afternoon and I want more, please. Warm crusty bread and a nice glass of Pinot would be good with that and dark chocolate covered caramels for dessert. Yum!

I’ll be out on the terrace enjoying the stars. I wish. Right now it’s cloudy with rain off and on. The bulk of Delta went west and north of us. One more day of rain. Our daytime highs will be up around 80 degrees until next Friday, Zzyyggy. Then it’s back in the 60’s for three days. That’s pretty normal Fall weather for us.

Hi ladies, I'm starving for lunch today. I'll have a huge bacon cheeseburger with onion rings, and a coca cola. Corn on the cob with that. For dessert I'll have some brownies, and an iced cafe mocha. We're having a quick Indian Summer today with temps into the 70s and then thunderstorms and a cooling down. Hopefully this isn't the only Indian Summer we get.

Hi Linda, wow are we having a gorgeous day up here. It's cold though, we had a frost this morning, but the sun is up, and the skies are clear. Just got home from a swim today, and I'm pooped.

Another wonderful afternoon at the cyber pool. I’ve had my chicken dinner and I’m ready for a brownie sundae with chocolate chip mint ice cream, fudge sauce, mini M&M’s, a splash of Creme de Menthe, and whipped cream.
😋
The clouds are starting to come in and the rain from Delta starts tomorrow. We’re expecting about two inches of rain over the weekend. I can’t imagine how the people living on the gulf coast, especially Louisiana, are coping with all these back to back storms.

I’m going to breakfast out on the cybercafe’s terrace and enjoy the day. Actually, it’s a nice day where I live. I see windy, cloudy, and rainy weather for you today, Zzyyggy. I have a big day full of laundry today. The littlest sweetie has vacation this week and last week was online school so we’re going to get together tomorrow.

Good Morning All!

It feels good to be here with you. There is a little place near my job that serves pumpkin sausage ravioli and it is to die for! Add a cafe mocha and it is heaven!

Looking forward to wrapping up classes early tonight. I have a student with covid so, we are all online until she can rejoin the class. One class in person, one online that I will tape ahead of time over my lunch from my regular job today.

Wishing you all a great day! HUGS!

Hi Darcy and Zzyyggy. Thought I’d stop by for a cup of tea and a pumpkin scone. Zzyyggy, your dinner order sounded so good I’ve pre-ordered it for tomorrow. Yum! Chicken and mashed potatoes and gravy and butternut squash. I need to buy some butternut squash. I like to let them sit on the counter to awhile. I think they get sweeter when they sit out.

We had some mornings that were cool enough to turn on the heat, but it’s gotten a little bit warmer again. It’s supposed to go up to 80 degrees tomorrow. It’s not too bad because it’s only hot for an hour or so. We’re watching the storms come up through the Gulf of Mexico. It looks like we’ll be getting rain over the weekend—don’t know if it’s coming from the west or the south yet.

Hi Linda, We're having a gorgeous day here in the North. A perfect fall day. I just got back from a long walk after picking up some chicken, and veggies. For lunch I'll have some roasted chicken, stuffing, squash, mashed potatoes, and gravy. A roll and a coca cola would be good with that. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies, and an iced cafe mocha. I think I'll take a nap today.

Hi Linda, here for lunch. Just had a power outage in the building and the power was down for about 20 minutes. It's very eerie when everything including the refrigerator is quiet. I'm ready for lunch now. I think I'll have the Bacon Cheeseburger with fries, and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, and an iced cafe mocha.

Hi Linda, Welcome to the cyber cafe Grandmababa. You're in luck here the food here has no calories, no carbs, and is all free. You can have anything your heart and mind wants or craves. I'm here Sunday brunch. I'd love some blueberry muffins, scrambled eggs, iced cafe mochas, and sausages. Hashbrowns as well, and those yummy cinnamon buns. I think I'll spend the afternoon reading on the terrace.

Well, Zzyyggy, I just finished breakfast. Francois made me the huge farmer’s breakfast divided into three meals. That should do me for the day except for Sunset Dessert, of course. I’m thinking of having a small cheese plate with grapes and a glass of wine.

My plan is to spend the rest of the day in my pool lounger floating the cyber pool. It’s 68 degrees in the real world in Monroe, NC and with overnight temperatures in the 40’s the water would be a bit too chilly for a swim in the community pool.

Hi Linda, I'm in the mood for the huge farmer's breakfast of 2 fried eggs over medium, french toast, sausages, homefries, and lots of iced cafe mochas. I'll also have some of those cinnamon buns.

Good morning! I’d like the the sunshine breakfast special. That’s two eggs, meat, hash browns, and biscuits. I like my eggs over easy, turkey sausage patties, and grits along with hash browns and biscuits. A carafe of Peet’s Cafe Domingo with cream and sugar, too, please.

I didn’t walk on the treadmill yesterday because I had a migraine. After three hours of sleep last night I finally took some migraine medication and I’m starting to feel better. After breakfast I might just lie back in my recliner by the fire here at the cybercafe (it’s chilly this morning) and take a five hour nap. I wish I could actually do that, but I promised to box up some shelves of books and take them to the second chance store run by the women’s shelter. I’m trying to clean out some of the clutter.

Oh, Zzyyggy, physical therapy and grocery shopping? Ouch! Definitely time for a nap. Your soup order sounds yummy. I’m going to have the cheeseburger deluxe platter, an iced tea, and an iced brownie.

Hi Linda, sounds like you had quite the wake up call. I don't like ladder's either, it's not heights I'm afraid of I'm afraid of the narrow steps on the ladders, and going up and down. Course now I'm not suppose to do ladders for another month or so. Just got back from my physical therapy, and grocery shopping. Stopped at the coffee shop as well for an iced cafe mocha. I really deserved one. Here a little early for lunch, but I'll have the mini pastries today with a pitcher of cafe mocha's. I'll do some reading on the terrace. For lunch today I'll have the bacon cheddar broccoli, potato cheese soup with lots of bread and butter for dipping. For dessert I'll have some brownies, and those cafe mochas. just keep the mocha's coming.

Mm, mini muffins! I love muffins. I’ll join you on the terrace with my cup of hot cafe mocha, Zzyyggy. I can’t decide which flavor is my favorite—pumpkin, lemon poppyseed, apple, chocolate, or molasses.

We lost electric this morning for less than a minute, but long enough for the battery to die in the smoke detector right outside our bedroom door. That chirping sound is painfully loud and not the best way to wake up in the morning! First thing is to find some ear protection, then hope we can find a new battery for it. Please. I don’t know what I would do without Sweetie, because I don’t do well climbing ladders. I become absolutely paralyzed once I get high enough on the ladder. Not at all helpful to Sweetie!

Hi Linda. We're finally getting some much needed soaking rain this morning, and it's cooled down quite a bit. I don't think I'll be sitting outside in the real world today. I love it when it rains like this though. I'll sit out on the terrace with my iced cafe mochas, and a plate of mini muffins, and cinnamon rolls to munch on, while I do some reading. For lunch today I'll have the spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and an iced cafe mocha. I may just go back to bed and sleep all day after this.

Azil, I saw a ginger cake recipe on John Kirkwood’s YouTube channel about 3 months ago that inspired me to order it at the cybercafe. One of these days I’m going to make it. Might be nice to have at Thanksgiving.

Visiting your coffee shop is great motivation to get you out of the house and walking, Zzyyggy. While we’re close to shopping, it’s not safe to walk there. Unlike my neighborhood, the main roads have no sidewalks, no shoulders on the side of the road, and even on the main highway the drainage is a ditch on the side of the road.

Sweetie just went to the grocery store and now it’s raining. Poor thing is going to get wet. He asked me if I wanted anything and I replied, “iced brownies.” He laughed. Fortunately, Viktor will bring my brownies and iced tea out to the terrace right here at the cybercafe.

Hi ladies, I'm still pooped after yestarday, but getting things done this morning. My sister inspired me yestarday to do some housework. Her "tiny" house is about the same size as my efficiency apartment, maybe a little bigger, and she said she cleaned it top to bottom on Sunday, so I'm doing mine today. It really needs it. I'm such a slob sometimes. It comes from my days as a working hotel maid. When I got home I just didn't want to do anymore housework at all. I'll just sit outside this morning and munch on some of those mini pastries, cinnamon buns, and muffins. I'll also have some iced cafe mochas. Just finished off a real one from my favorite coffee shop. You still can't dine inside, but I usually just pick one up on my morning walk,m and finish it at home. The shop is only about a ten minute walk from my house. For lunch today I think I'll have the rotisserie chicken with string beans and butter, and potato salad. A coca cola with that please. For dessert I'll have a huge chocolate chip cookie.

Wow! Everyone is having such interesting conversations and such delicious meals that I'm inspired. I'd like some of that ginger cake LINDAK25 is having, along with a pot of green tea. Thanks!

Boy, you had a busy morning, Zzyyggy! I’d say it’s been quiet where I live, but it sounds like all of my neighbors have decided to mow their lawns today. I’m spending the afternoon at the cybercafe, too.

Viktor, I’d like sausage with onions and peppers on ciabatta bread, please. Don’t forget the melted cheese on top. I’m going to have a piece of ginger cake for dessert. Thanks for the pitcher of iced tea.

Hi Linda, here for lunch today. I think I'll have the bacon cheeseburger with onion rings, and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies, and an iced cafe mocha. I had a busy morning of swimming, grocery shopping and walking. I also spent some of the morning reading at an outside cafe with a cup of coffee. It's been such a nice morning. I'm ready for a nap now. I think I'll spend the afternoon reading by the cyber pool with a pitcher of iced tea, and some munchies. Maybe a swim later.

Hey, Zzyyggy. We’re having a nice day today. It was supposed to be warmer but it’s been in the low 70’s today. I’m ready for cooler weather. That’s why Viktor has a fire going in the fireplace at the cybercafe. I’m having a bowl of chicken lentil soup with warm crusty bread and a pot of tea for dinner. Sweetie says he wants warm bread pudding with Jack Daniel’s hard sauce on it for dessert. I’m thinking apple strudel with vanilla ice cream for me

Hi Linda, Yes Sunday brunch. I'm starving. I'm going to have the three eggs over medium, hashbrowns, english muffins, sausages, pancakes with lots of butter, and maple syrup, and of course lots of iced cafe mochas. I've been craving pancakes for some time now, and may make some for lunch in the real world. Also some cinnamon buns please.

Hi Linda, Tired mostly from the physical therapy itself. The walk isn't bad at all. Here for my cafe mocha's and cinnamon buns again. Thankfully they have no calories at all. For lunch today I think I'll have the fried scallops with french fries, and corn on the cob with lots of butter and tarter sauce. A coca cola with that please. For dessert I'll have a maple creamy with an iced cafe mocha. No hurrry on the lunch order guys when ever you're ready.

Good morning, Zzyyggy. I’ll join you on the terrace for coffee and cinnamon buns. It’s nice to be able to sit outside even if it is virtual. It’s raining where I live. How convenient to be able to walk to physical therapy, although you must be tired on your walk home.

Hi Linda, here for my early morning iced cafe mocha's and cinnamon buns. I'll sit out on the terrace and read for awhile in the sunshine. For lunch today I think I'll have the roast beef grinder with the works, chips and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocoalte chip cookies, and another iced cafe mocha. Heading over for my physical therapy soon. It's within walking distance so I don't have to worry about bus schedules and all that other stuff.

Zzyyggy! I’m going to join you by the pool. Lovely day here at the cybercafe. It’s cloudy where I live. The rain will start tonight and it’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow. Your weekend forecast looks the same as mine, but you’ll see temperatures ten degrees cooler by next Wednesday. I miss the Fall weather, but not the cold winter weather. Maybe we’ll have some snow this winter.

Viktor is bringing out some snacks for us. I ordered nachos platter and a pitcher of iced tea.

Hi Linda, that's always fun getting your hair done. It feels so good afterwords. Today is a perfect day weather wise here in the real world. I'll have to go out later on. I can't believe it's almost the end of September already. For lunch today I'll have the 2 eggs over medium with bacon, really thick homefries, english muffins with jam. Also an iced cafe mocha, and some of those cinnamon buns. After that maybe an afternoon by the pool reading.

Dinner was delicious, Zzyyggy. Francois made roast chicken with roasted carrots and potatoes for me. We can sit in front of the fire in our recliners and have dessert. Viktor started a nice fire in the fireplace because there’s a bit of a chill in the air tonight at the cybercafe. Mm, this pumpkin pie tastes great with ice cream.

Sweetie and I got our hair done today. So exciting.

Hi Linda and Azil, I'm here late for lunch but maybe I'll hang around for dinner. For a pre dinner snack I'll have a hot fudge sundae. For dinner I'll have the porter house steak with baked potato and lots of butter. A coca cola with that please. For dessert I'll have some pumpkin pie and ice cream with an iced cafe mocha. I'm having one of those days where I'm spinning my wheels and getting nothing done. I'm ready for a nap.

Macaroni and cheese, please. Then for dessert I’ll have a piece of french toast because Azil made that look too good to pass up. I’m heading out to the terrace here at the cybercafe to sit in the sun. Viktor would you please bring out a carafe of hot cafe mocha for me? Maybe that will help me warm up.

Zzyyggy, the temperature has gone down to 46 degrees for the last three nights and stayed in the 60’s during the day so my heat finally came on this morning! Hopefully, it won’t get too hot again, although we can have hot weather in October.

Hi Linda, hope you slept well last night. Gorgeous outside but with chilly temps at 49 degrees. We're suppose to get up to the 70s this week. Here for my morning iced cafe mocha and cinnamon buns on the terrace. For lunch I think I'll have some macaroni and cheese with Garlic bread, and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some brownies, and an iced cafe mocha.
