Hi Linda, you it was cold last night, no open window for me. Already went out to our local Walmary. There was no one there, well almost noone. In and out with very little fuss. For lunch today I'll have the clam chowder with lots of bread and butter for dipping, and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies, and an iced cafe mocha. An afternoon by the cyber pool sounds perfect today

Hey Zzyyggy. Your Klondike Bars have got me thinking about ice cream. I think I’ll have a brownie sundae with chocolate chip mint ice cream, fudge sauce, and a generous sprinkling of mini M&M’s. Oh, just dump the M&M’s over the sundae. Please. Let’s not forget the whipped cream and a couple of maraschino cherries.

It’s supposed to go down to 23 degrees tonight, brr. Of course I checked your overnight temperature, Zzyyggy—0 degrees. 😱 You may have to stay at the cybercafe where there’s always a warm blanket and a pair of bunny slippers when you need them.

I remember how the cold wind could go right through all the layers of winter clothing and chill me to the bone Zzyyggy. Brr, just thinking about it makes me shiver. I do miss snow days though. It’s raining and cold today where I live. It’s a good day to spend by the fire at the cybercafe.

Viktor, I’ll have meatloaf with mashed potatoes and carrots, and iced tea, please. Francois made a pineapple upside down cheesecake this afternoon. I can’t wait to try it.

Hi Linda, decided to get out today because there may be no getting out tomorrow. Big storm with several inches of snow coming. I'm well stocked as far as groceries are concerned. Need to pick up some soda later today. For lunch I'm going to have the cheeseburger platter with french fries, and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies, and an iced cafe mocha. Yestarday it was not only cold outside there was a cold wind blowing. The sun was out, but I decided to stay in. I can handle cold, but not a wind chill added to it. I think I'll spend the afternoon by the cyber fire reading with a plate of munchies, and a pitcher of sweet tea

Swimming in the cyber pool has been fun Zzyyggy. It’s time to dry off. I’m ready for a cheese plate and a martini. I’m ordering the nachos for dinner with lots of guacamole and chips and cheese. Yum! Key lime pie for dessert.

Sweetie mowed some of the lawn and is putting down fertilizer today. It’s the last warm, 60 degree day we’re going to have for a while. We’ll be back to our normal winter weather. Sigh. I’ve been enjoying getting up in the morning to a warm house. Time to put the heavier blanket on the bed so I can cope with the temperature going below 70 in the house.

Hi Linda, It's snowing out today, but I needed half and half for my coffee. It wasn't too bad walking yet. Good for you for not getting any goodies, I tend to buy them on my big monthly shopping. For lunch today I'll have the broccoli cheddar soup with lots of bread and butter. A coca cola with that please. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies and an iced cafe mocha. I think I'll spend the afternoon by the cyber pool reading, and swimming.

Hey, Zzyyggy. We went shopping today, too. I realized when we got home that we didn’t buy any goodies. Huh. We bought the nicest grapes, though.

Sweetie is making soup. Who starts cooking at 9:00 at night? I’m going to stay here at the cybercafe in my recliner by the fireplace with a cup of tea and chocolate covered caramels.

Hi Linda, today I think I'll have the 2 eggs over medium with hashbrowns, and bacon, and iced cafe mochas. A cinnamon bun with all that please. Yestarday when was at our local coop I spied some real sticky buns, and almost bought one, I said no though. Didn't want to negate all that swimming and that would. I'll just stick to the virtual cinnamon buns. I think I'll spend the afternoon by the pool in the sunshine and do some reading while munching on chips and sipping sweet tea

Why go out when the weather is awful and you can stay home? Even doing housework is better than dealing with ice and slushy snow. Gee, Zzyyggy, who knew it was so fun to hang out at the YMCA? Huh, Sweetie doesn’t think I’m funny. The City of Monroe runs an aquatic center, but they only have vending machines. Not the same thing. Isn’t it nice to be spoiled?

Viktor, I’d like the roast beef dinner with baked potato and creamed spinach, please. Cafe mocha sounds good and pumpkin pie.

Hi Linda, yeah I know Sunday was the perfect day to hide out in the man cave. I just couldn't get to Wi Fi. Instead I spent the day at home watching Law and Order SVU. I got quite a bit of housework done though. For lunch today I'll have some beef stew with lots of bread and butter for dipping. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies, and an iced cafe mocha. I found a new office. The new YMCA has little desks to sit at, Wi Fi, and best of all coffee. I can go swimming and then work on the internet.

Your weather looks abysmal, Zzyyggy. Rain, ice, and then snow in the forecast. We’re looking at wind and rain for the next four or five days with the high temperatures up near 70 degrees. I’m can’t complain about that. The weather at the cybercafe will be clear and sunny though.

I’m just finishing up another cinnamon bun with a cup of tea. A nice way to end the day. I’m planning on spending tomorrow by the cyber pool.

Good evening, Sunshine. There’s a recliner by the fireplace where you can sit back and read your book or you can choose the cybercafe’s man cave with the big screen TV and big recliners.

I’m sitting by the fireplace with my book. Viktor brought me a pot of tea and windmill cookies. It’s nice and quiet in here, but the cybercafe’s bar is busy if you decide you want some noise.

No ice at the cybercafe this evening. I’m having a grilled cheese sandwich and a hot cup of cafe mocha. Francois made some oatmeal cookies with pecans, chocolate chips, and dried cherries. Some of them have coconut, too. Yum. I’ll have a plate of those.

I’m watching Jacque Pepin make eggs and crepes. Yum.

Hi Linda, I'm here for a late lunch today. Had to wAit until the roads thawed out. There was a flash freeze this morning with lots of ice so I stayed in and enjoyed a couple cups of coffee. For lunch I'll have the spaghetti and meatballs with garlic cheesy bread and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some Klondike bars and an iced cafe mocha.

Reading your comments about your weather makes me realize I can’t complain that the temperature was 30 degrees this morning! I don’t have to deal with temperatures in the single digits in Monroe, NC. We do occasionally have ice and once in the twelve years we’ve lived here we had NINE inches of snow. Usually when it snows 1 to 3 inches of snow, it’s melted by noon.

I’m ready for a nice cup of tea and lemon shortbread cookies. Ah, it feels good to sit back in my recliner by the fireplace with my bunny slippers on and a cat by my side.

Hi Linda, I'll trade weather with you any day. We had ice earlier this morning so I waited until the roads were plowed out, and went to my favorite coffee shop in Winooski. I was so tired after my swim yestarday I slept all afternoon when I got home. For lunch today I think I'll have the macaroni and cheese with lots of garlic bread and butter a coca cola with that please. For dessert I'll have some brownies, and an iced cafe mocha.

Zzyyggy, your weather would be perfect for me! We’re having a gorgeous day with sunny, clear skies at 60 degrees. I miss winter. I miss the dark cloudy days. I miss the constant wind on the top of the hill we used to live on. You notice I didn’t mention the cold? I realize that if you dress appropriately it’s easier to deal with extreme temperatures, but I can’t say I miss the freezing cold. I’d like a cloudy snowy day, please—I’ll just order one up. The forecast shows temperatures in the 60’s for the next ten days and I just put the flannel sheets on the bed.

Your new YMCA sounds impressive Zzyyggy. Maybe the windows at the pool will be good motivation to get out and go for a swim.

I’ll join you by the fire Zzyyggy. Viktor, I’d like a bowl of chicken soup with mini ravioli, please. Mm, chocolate chip cookies and iced mocha cafe for dessert. Delicious.

Hi Linda, here for lunch today. Had to check out our new YMCA this morning. Wow what a place. The pools are huge, and the whole area is a lot bigger then the old one. Also there is no more swimming in the cave like the old one both pools have windows so we can see the weather outside. Today it's not so great weather. Snowy, cloudy and blah outside. For lunch today I think I'll have some fried chicken with mashed potatoes, and gravy biscuits and a coca cola with that please. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip coookies and an iced cafe mocha. An afternoon by the cyber fire is a perfect way to spend the day.

Glad you made it home before the snow, Zzyyggy. It was a great brunch this morning and walking around the cyber farm was fun. I got to pet all the goats and feed them sunflower seeds.

I’m ready to spend the evening reading my book in my recliner by the fireplace. Viktor, I’d like an iced brownie and a mocha cafe, please.

Hi Linda, here for Sunday brunch. I think I'll have the scrambled eggs with a giant blueberry muffin and a cinnamon bun as well with sausages and iced cafe mochas. That should put me into a sugar coma hee hee. I think I'll take a nice hike around the cyber farm today. Haven't done that in awhile. I made it home yestarday before the snow really started to come down. It is pretty watching it though when you're not trying to walk through it.

Yikes, your forecast is full of snowflakes Zzyyggy! We’ve been having exceptionally warm temperatures this winter. Usually our highs are in the 50’s not the 60’s and 70’s. At least we’re getting rain now after a very dry Fall. The sun is shining right now although it’s a very humid 64 degrees. Crazy weather!

An afternoon at the cybercafe by the pool sounds good to me Zzyyggy. I can practice my cannonball splash after I digest lunch.

Viktor, I’ll have a ham and cheese sandwich with mayo, mustard, tomato, and lettuce on rye bread with kettle chips and an iced tea, please. Francois made ginger molasses sandwich cookies with orange buttercream filling for later this afternoon.

Hi Linda, Sorry I missed the last three days the weather hasn't been cooperating with getting out every day. I may have to rethink this no internet at home. I'm back at Starbucks this morning before another winter storm hits. For lunch today I think I'll have the bacon cheeseburger with french fries and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies and an iced cafe mocha. Another afternoon in the pool seems like a wise choice. We haven't seen the sun around here for awhile. I loved the New Year's Party though.

Happy New Year! Wow, what a great New Year’s Eve party we had at the cybercafe last night! Great food, dancing, and singing. Zzyyggy and her pack joined in and made it a howling success.

I’m going swimming in the cyber pool for awhile and then I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon on the patio reading my book. I’m sure Viktor will keep me well supplied with snacks and iced tea.

Great way to spend the afternoon Zzyyggy! Swimming and then chocolate chip cookies while we watch movies. I’m actually watching The Witcher on Netflix.

The bonfire has started. Let’s hurry Zzyyggy, we don’t want to be late for the party. Francois has been cooking all day and Viktor has set up the bar and made punch. Let’s see if we can find a fire pit and roast marshmallows for s’mores.

Hi Linda, Happy New Year. I'm hanging out today at the local Starbucks. My sister gave me a gift certificate, and I had to meet my other sister in down town Burlington, so Starbuck's was the place. It's a nice little store. Not as nice as my favorite coffee shop in Winooski, but nice enough, and it has Wi Fi. Usually I hang out at the library in Burlington but they have something going on there for New Year's Eve. For lunch today I think I'll have some beef stew with lots of bread and butter for dipping. A coca cola with that please. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies and an iced cafe mocha. I think I'll hang out on the terrace until the bonfire tonight, and fire works. Maybe we should have a movie marathon, or just do some swimming? I probably won't be in tomorrow as everything will be closed so hope you have a good last night in 2019.

I missed brunch, Zzyyggy! It got warm enough today in my house that the air conditioning came on. When the daytime and nighttime temperature stays at 65 degrees the house gets nice and toasty. I need to change the setting on the air conditioning to a higher temperature.

I’m headed to bed. I just stopped by for a chocolate covered caramel or two.

Hi Linda, I finally made it in for Sunday brunch. I figured I better get out today before the Winter weather comes in the next two days. I think I'll have the two eggs over medium with English muffins, hashbrowns, sausages, and of course lots of cafe mochas. I'll also enjoy a plate of the cinnamon buns as well. I think I'll sit on the terrace and see who comes in.

Snow, rain, snow! Zzyyggy it looks like you’re in for a bit of weather. It’s been warm where I live and we’re going to have more rain.

It’s late and I’m finishing up my tea and cookies. The decorations at the cybercafe were fantastic for Christmas. I saw Igor carrying bags of balloons and streamers. They’re going to setup the dining room and the patio by the pool for the party on New Year’s Eve. I’m off to bed. Hope I see you this week.

Hi Linda, Today is such a gorgeous day outside I couldn't stay in. Did some errands earlier, and now am at my favorite coffee shop. Tomorrow night we're getting some nasty weather into Monday morning.

For lunch today I think I'll have the quarter pounder with cheese, fries, and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies, and an iced cafe mocha. Today is the last nice day of 2019 for us. I see Igor decorated the place real well for Christmas, and now he's getting the place ready for New Year's day. We should have an outside bonfire that night.

Zzyyggy! Glad you had a merry Christmas. We went to our son’s house for dinner along with some of his wife’s family.Yum! And I didn’t have to cook. We had fun. They came to our house for lunch on Christmas Eve. The littlest sweetie (our grandson) has had a great holiday and he’s staying over tonight. He considers our house his other house.

I’d like a fast food cheeseburger and a Dr. Pepper. Then I plan on hanging out at the cybercafe in my recliner with my book and napping throughout the evening.

I really enjoyed practicing my cannonballs in the cyber pool this afternoon, Zzyyggy. I was so worn out that I took a three hour nap. (Or it could have been insomnia.)

I’m going to relax in my recliner by the fireplace with a cup of tea and some crispy molasses ginger cookies. Maybe I’ll read my book and pet the cat.

You got an early Christmas present, good for you! If you stopped coming to the cybercafe I’d miss you terribly. I’ve been missing Eabl. Hopefully she’s just taking a little time off and will be back.

I’m going to order a piece of 5-layer dark chocolate cake with alternating layers of raspberry and hazelnut cream filling, iced with chocolate ganache. An iced cafe mocha would be perfect with that.

Hi Linda it has been cold around here the last two days, but today the sun is out, and that makes a big difference. Yestarday I got a new television set the first one in about 20 years. I had an old tube tv and was just using it for VHS tapes since it wasn't getting any channels on it. I missed tv this winter though. My brother took me up to Best Buy and we got a nifty 24 inch screen one. Came home, and put it together, and spent the rest of the afternoon watching tv. My brother thinks I'm going to become a couch potato, but I can't since I have no internet at home, and I have to come to the cafe periodically emoticon . For lunch today I think I'll have the seafood chowder with lots of bread and butter for dipping and a coca cola with that. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies and an iced cafe mochas. I also still have to go out for my mochas as well.

Sounds like you’re going to have a white Christmas this year, Zzyyggy. I was feeling nostalgic about snow until I checked out the temperature in Vermont. It’s a balmy 1 degree at 5:00am with a high of 12 degrees compared to 26 degrees with a high of 46 degrees southeast of Charlotte today. By the end of the week our temperatures will be back up in the 60’s. I can’t complain.

I think I’ll take a seat next to the fireplace at the cybercafe. I’ll start with a nice cup of coffee. Viktor left a fresh basket of mini pastries for me and I ordered a cheese and veggie omelet.

Hi Linda, I missed Sunday brunch, but didn't feel like going out all weekend. I spent the weekend reading. For lunch today I think I'll have a blueberry muffin, scrambled eggs with sausages, and a hashbrown, a cinnamon bun, and lots of cafe mochas. Out running errands today. The sun is out, but man is it ever cold outside.

Zzyyggy, your lunch order sounds good. Glad you got your computer back and it’s working okay.

It will be the perfect afternoon to spend at the cybercafe. It’s raining. We’ve gotten an over an inch and a half and are expecting to get at least another half inch of rain today. It was supposed to warm up into the 40’s today, maybe later in the day it will.

Viktor, I’d like the scallops broiled in butter, mashed potatoes and broccoli tomato salad and iced tea, please. For dessert, brownies with vanilla buttercream icing.

Hi Linda, here for lunch today. It's a beautiful day outside with lots of sunshine, but brrrrrr is it ever cold out. Picked up my computer from the repair store, and it's working pretty good now. For lunch I think I'll have the fried scallop platter with french fries, and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some brownies and an iced cafe mocha. I think I'll spend the afternoon by the fire reading with a plate of munchies and a pot of tea.

I’m glad I joined you for breakfast, Zzyyggy. The cybercafe’s cinnamon buns are the best! Mm, so good.

It’s 8:00pm and I finished the ravioli and sauce Francois made for me. The garlic bread was really good. I’m going to have to be careful not to breathe on anyone. For dessert there’s iced peppermint mocha cookies and I think a mocha cafe would go well with that.

I see it’s snowing by you, Zzyyggy. It’s already 34 degrees where I live and the temperature is going down below freezing tonight. Wrens have decided to roost in the garland and swag on the front door. Monday night one of the wrens got in the house. Good grief! Sweetie wanted to know if he could feed them. Fortunately wrens are insectivores otherwise we’d have a mess to clean up on the front porch.

Hi Linda, it is very cold outside around here today. I think I'll enjoy the afternoon by the fire with a pot of tea and some munchies. For lunch today I think I'll have the spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies and an iced cafe mocha. Just took my laptop to the computer store to be looked at. It wasn't getting wifi anywhere at all. It's still under warranty to any repairs will be free, but I'll go through scrabble withdrawl. I still have my kindle though, and I'm using the library's computers for this.

No snow here, although we were supposed to get rain, but didn’t. It was 75 degrees today. Tomorrow it will rain and the temperature will be back in the 40’s.

I’m ready to spend the evening at the cybercafe in my recliner by the fireplace with my bucket of M&M’s and my book. Viktor made hot chocolate fro me. 😋

Time for chocolate! A pumpkin swirl chocolate brownie for me, please. It’s a good evening to sit in my recliner by the fireplace with my bunny slippers on and my book. Did you get more snow Zzyyggy?

Hi ladies, for lunch I'll have the bacon cheeseburger platter with fries and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies and an iced cafe mocha. Snowing again in the real world so I'll enjoy the fire and a good book. A lot of tea and munchies would be good as well.

That was a wonderful second breakfast Zzyyggy. It’s time for a charcuterie board (a fancy way to say a cheese, meats, nuts, and fruit platter). Francois made my favorite little cheese crackers and a selection of other crackers and sliced baguette. I’m going to relax in my chaise lounge by the pool with my martini. All y’all are welcome to join me.

A bit chilly this morning, but a nice fire in the fireplace and a cup of tea will warm things up. Viktor, I’d like some tea biscuits and fruit, please.

Great afternoon spent by the fireplace at the cybercafe Zzyyggy. Now that I’ve finished my macaroni and cheese I’m going to order a slice of chocolate pecan pie with whipped cream and a glass of iced tea.

Good morning. I’m drinking my coffee as I watch the sunrise. The sky is pink this morning. We don’t often have pretty sunrise and sunset skies—unlike the cybercafe where the sky is always beautiful even on a cloudy day.

I’ll sit by the fireplace, Viktor. I’d like a vegetable omelet and raspberry cheese danish, please.

We’re having a thunderstorm where I live. I can hear the train, it’s a long one and every time they come to an intersection the whistle blows. The heat hasn’t come up for the day yet and it’s chilly so I thought I’d sit by the fireplace at the cybercafe. Viktor has got a nice fire going. I’ve got my tea and a cinnamon bun and I’m thinking of turning the heat up.

Zzyyggy! Good you’re still out here in the sun. Here’s another pitcher of iced tea. Viktor, I’d like the roast beef grinder with Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and mayo, please.

It’s nice to sit here and relax a bit. The house is clean and I’ll spiff up the bath just before company shows up. We’ve got cranberry relish, cranberry salad, pumpkin pie, and gravy all ready and the stuffing and the turkey are ready to roast. Sweetie is roasting the turkey. He dry brined it. I don’t make brined poultry as a rule because of the salt, but Sweetie’s in charge this year. Heaven help us.

Hi ladies, I made it in today. I thought I'd better since I won't be able to come in tomorrow. Everything is closed and I won't have any WiFi emoticon . For lunch today I think I'll have a roast beef grinder with everything, a coca cola and a bag of chips. For dessert I'll have an iced cafe mocha and chocolate chip cookies. Looks like Linda got her chocolate. I think I'll spend the afternoon in the sun with a good book, and a pitcher of iced tea. Maybe go swimming later. Everyone have a happy Thanksgiving, and eat a lot of Turkey. emoticon

Hi ladies, Linda if you brought them in here we would have eaten them. My grand niece is a baker and sometimes her stuff looks interesting, but its all good. For a late lunch or early dinner I think I'll have some fried chicken, mashed potates and gravey, biscuits and a coca cola. For dessert I'll have some chocolate chip cookies and an iced cafe mocha. I got a late start today.

Soup sounds good for lunch today. I’m going to have turkey barley soup. Viktor will bring out more bread and butter for us and a pot of tea for me. For dessert I ordered my favorite chocolate dipped chocolate mint cookies.

I made them for a Christmas dinner at Sweetie’s family get together and no one would eat them because they wouldn’t believe they were homemade. They wouldn’t even try them. The dough looks like tootsie rolls and they come out of the oven looking exactly like they did when they went in, which makes them ideal for cutting into shapes or pressing designs in—thereby making them look store bought.

Zzyyggy those blueberry pancakes sound delicious. I’m going to have chicken parmesan, though a dessert crepe with blueberries and syrup would be good. With chocolate something. Chocolate caramels. Caramel M&M’s. Yeah, that’s what I’ll do.

Sweetie went overboard and we now have 6 1/2 quarts of turkey stock (he insists it’s turkey broth, whatever). We also have 2 quarts of chicken stock in the refrigerator and another quart in the freezer. I guess we’re serving turkey soup on Thursday.
