Moanday mourning greetings to all. The coffee pot is good to go as is the tea kettle.

Now that the dynamic dietary duo of Sarah and Anna May have supplied well balanced hints vis-a-vis cookies, I'll just take a few (hey, what happened to the carrot cake cookies?) and, coffee mug in hand, retire to the corner table, then crank the heater up a notch and fret over whether my beloved New Orleans Saints can beat the Bucs and their 'All-Universe' quarterback, Tom Brady, three times in one season. (worry X3)

Never fear, I've arrived. The week will start now. I'm happy to see my micro was approved by Gill this morning. It's always fun to see one's work on the main page of our site.

Coffee is cooling as I move to the forum and see what else has transpired around the site over the dark hours.

hello1 hi everyone
A large iced coffee sounds yummy in the tummy right about now.
I just submitted a cute little story
Never fear I have fresh cookies!

*moving the old cookies to the emergency cookie tins behind the counter and filling the cookie jars to the tippy top with fresh cookies*

In Big Bird we have carrot cake cookies. Pecan divines, cinnamon stars, and maple walnut cookies
In Cookie Monster we have butterscotch marshmallow crunch cookies, ginger snaps, banana and peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip cookies
*giving the adorable mascots fresh water and treats shaped like snowflakes *

Stay safe everyone!

Hello, everyone. Nice to catch up with all your news. I'll grab a ginger and lemon tea and a handful of those delicious cookies Sara kindly provides.

Morning, 'Spacers. The coffee pot has been hosed down and filled with prime dark roast and the same fine tap water that now fills the tea kettle. Enjoy.

Think I'll grab a ration of cookies, fill my mug and weave my way to the corner table to ingest both while catching up on Stories Space, you know, stories. ;)

So, I went out to get the mail tonight, took a couple steps on to the driveway and went "great big nope". It was like stepping on to a skating rink. There was freezing drizzle in the forecast and I guess we got some.

My neck of the woods is once again in a "state of emergency" and "stay at home" due to everybody's (not) favorite virus. There's the usual raft of exceptions to the latter. We shall see if this helps bring numbers down, though I suspect that it being two weeks passed since the holidays will accomplish that as much as anything we actually do now.

Good evening, all. * grabs an assortment of cookies while the kettle boils *

Morning, Spacers, and a happy Hump Day to all who enter. The coffee pot has been rinsed out and filled with whatever off-brand of coffee was located under the counter. Pristine tap water was then added to both the pot and tea kettle prior to their being cranked up.

A generous supply of cookies are still available. So feel free to take one, maybe two, right after I grab a handful, that is.

With a filled mug of coffee in one hand and a bunch of cookies in the other, I'll stumble over to the corner table to sit and contemplate life, its consequences and inevitabilities.

Morning, Bill. Are you still contemplating life? I hope you left some coffee for me. Counting down. Next Wednesday is Inauguration Day. We thought it would never come.

I would like to be contemplating life, but work gets priority right now. Just wrapping up my lunch hour. Nice day here. Debating if 4C is warm enough to go for a walk. My Canadian nature says "go for it".

Afternoon tea is on. Orange pekoe with a shot of lime juice.

Very funny. I just meant that I was wrapped around her like a koala...so I guess I played that part.

Also I don't dream about her very often for some reason.

And I did go for a walk (don't tell my boss, though) and it was glorious. Sunny, not too cold. Did my regular summer route but avoided woods (the trails aren't maintained in winter).

The coffee pot is being washed nice and clean now. Plenty of river water ready to brew coffee and make tea. Sara has made sure there are scads of cookies for everyone. Our coffee house is a great place to settle down and think. I know I want to express some ideas in some stories. I'm looking forward to seeing more work from our SS family.

Morning, Spacers. Pokes at the snoring form of Mendalla sprawled across the corner table. That walk must have taken the starch out of you. Guess I'll make a lot of noise while doing the coffee pot and tea kettle.

Okay, coffee's pretty good and the tea kettle is ready for action. My mug is full and so is my other hand but with Sarah's cookies.

Scott, you mind scootting over just a tad? I'll take that snort for a 'no'. So let me tell you what I'm agonna do, I'll just slip around to the chair nearest the heater. Granted, it's one of those folding plastic jobs and uncomfortable as hell but a small bit of suffering is acceptable in lieu of disturbing Scott, probbably.

Y'all feel free to come join us, he says while wondering what was in that tea.

Later, Inspirators. glasses8

...so Jane won't be wearing all black on next week's episode of WL. The last time that happened, none of the contestants were very smart and the winner didn't win by smarts (they were the only one to get any questions right during the final round).

TLDR; I don't have high hopes right now but I guess we'll see what happens. coffee

It's Friday, out-of-control TGIF celebrations are in order. ;) Now if we can only get by next Wednesday (Hump Days have been rough, recently) things just might settle down to a dull uproar. (crosses fingers)

Sarah, a blessing on you for the cookies and the comfy chairs.

Coffee's been prepared in due and ancient form and the tea kettle is doing its thing. Think I'll fill my mug, grab a few cookies and go check out those chairs Sarah installed.

It's time to join Bill and Scott in the coffee house. Thanks for getting the coffee ready. Smells good.

It snowed overnight. Not a lot but it is cold and the wind gusts are blowing the snow around. It is too cold for civilized shopping today.

Planned naps need blankets, too, don't they? bunny I've put some in the cupboard behind the new chair you brought. And there's a couple big, cozy quilts on the couch for serious power napping.

Good evening. Another week over and done with. 2021 is two weeks in.

Too late for caffeine so I'm having a lemon-ginger herbal tea with my cookies.

Is there any other kind? cat

Good morning. Coffee is on, kettle is boiling. Picked up a fresh selection of teas and restocked the mini-marshmallows.

Quiet weekend ahead here. Might do some writing and a bit of housework. Maybe read or watch something. Who knows.

Good morning, Scott. Thanks for getting everything set up. I'll have a cuppa java now. It smells great.

This morning there is still snow on the ground but I will need to venture out for things that we need. Like milk. So I'll get that done in the morning and then stay snug in the house the rest of the day and weekend.

Got my daily exercise in. Got some more work done on a long gestating story set in my fantasy world. Will likely be gestating a bit longer. I'm thinking this is headed for 6-7K words based on progress so far (currently at c. 2300). Watched some Youtube. Yep, it must be Saturday.

Think I'll now grab a couple birthday cookies, make a green tea, and crash out in one of those comfy chairs while I figure out where this story goes next (And, really, where it is going in general. Still not sure of the ending.)
