How wonderful for Scott to be away again for a lovely holiday. Merry Christmas to him and Larry and Cynthia and all the members of this wee welcoming site. I'm so glad we have this Coffee House and I have to get up earlier to get some coffee. What a delicious load of goodies Scott is leaving us with.

Larry, you are having a wonderful time with this Kansas Nutcracker - so different and entertaining, no wonder it is sold out for every performance.

Went shopping today and will have to go again even though most gifts are small and just to show our good wishes for our friends and family.

I will be checking in more often and see if I have anything exciting to say....probably not. Although I do have lots and lots of deer that see no reason they can't come right up to the house and eat anything growing around it. Go out and get within 15' of them and clap my hands and say "shoo" - they just look at me. Seriously. I think I look pretty threatening. Oh and black bears. They will become a problem like the deer population soon. So many around.

Anyway, Merry Christmas and enjoy the season.

Hey friends! Anyone care to join me for a late night coffee while I read some stories or perhaps try and write one?

Hello lovely Laura! Great to hear from you, Elizabeth and hope your rehearsal went well Larry!

Another bitterly cold morning with high winds. A cup of Earl Grey tea would go down nicely. ☕

Still here, Cynthia?

It's a properly pleasant day. Bright and sunny.

The coffee has brewed and I'm having my first cuppa java while computer updates get installed.



All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

Hi Guys. Any Glühwein available. Nothing like it on these cold December evenings.

Hi Larry! I'm checking in again. Definitely a hot drink needed for a cold night here!

Just now out the door for a Friday performance.

You sleep well, dear lady.

I had never heard of this until I recently saw it in a store and bought a bottle. My youngest son informed me it is his girlfriend's favorite wine this time of year.

I went back and bought a few more bottles since she is here from Germany for the holidays.

She also brought a lot of beautiful homemade cookies she baked.

I'll take a diet soda of some sort to counteract the number of cookies and chocolate I've eaten. I'll be in the corner checking over my list of things still to do or buy before Christmas.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Good morning, Gill. I've probably had maybe ten bottles of wine in my whole life. Not a clue what is really good or not. Enjoy, folks.

Leaving for a matinee in an hour.

I'm having my third cuppa java, preparing myself to go out. It's still rather chilly.

For those unfamiliar with Glühwein, it is a kind of mulled wine which should should be taken hot but not boiled. It really chases the cold away. toast

We have hot mulled wine here, which is a variation on Gluhwein. Very warming and seasonal!

Hope the perfornance went well, Larry!

It's raining here again. I am thinking of building an arc.

I am back to planning family gatherings. Perhaps I should become a professional planner.

At least I have gotten much better at delegating and assigning tasks to others.

I'll have a ginger-ale and go sit in the corner perusing recipes and making more lists.

It's the time of year where it's pretty much grey all day and dark by 4.30 pm! Brrrrrr!

Well done on the delegation for the family party, Gill! You are an ace planner.

Cup of Earl Grey here please. ☕

It's done. Final performance of The Nutcracker. I don't expect to do it next year. I'm tired.

The weather has been rather nice here. In the 50s during the day. Some people hoping for snow on Christmas.

I'm brewing my cuppa java now.

Larry, with the boss man gone south for a few days in the sun, do customers need to brew their own java? Not complaining, you understand, but cleaning up afterward might be a challenge. ;)

The cleaning gets done in the same manner that it does in an Awesome Bar I know of in another place. The brews that customers of this Coffee House drink appear with the help of each patron. Perhap the clientele does not speak of it but it gets done and we seem to be enjoying our coffee and tea along with other tempting drinks that sometimes are discovered by the folks here.

Good morning. Nice new username, Cynthia. Is Henrietta the favorite sister of Henry? Perhaps the novel by Charlotte Lenox. flower

The java is brewing. Not a lot is on the horizon for the day.

Thanks for the inspiration, Larry! It was you who gave me the idea. (hugs)

And I think Henrietta is the black sheep of the Fielding family! ;) 🐑

Larry, thanks for the inadvertent info dump on the ID of 'Henriettta'. Cyn, imo, that's a fine handle, or alias, as the case may be. ;)

Good coffee, Larry.

You two play nice or at least be sanitary.

Oh, I've got a cuppa java in me and the day can begin.

Nice to see you here, Bill.

That first sip of java. Nice.

It's a Friday and there is little to do today except take the pup to have his nails clipped.

I'll be off to do some writing for now.

Sanitary, for sure Bill. Sane? Hmmmm. In my case that is, not Larry's! ;)

Some kind of bedtime drink would go down nicely. :)

An herbal tea is a good sleepy time drink, Cynthia. You're up late tonight, my dear lady.

I'm finishing a final cuppa java and will have some chamomile tea next.
