Hi @Champagne Thank you for the tag and all the tags to the cafes. I think I feel able to join you tonight. It’s been a harrowing week but tonight I am sitting on the sofa with my cat on my lap purring and I feel a little calmer. More hopeful that perhaps finally I may be able to access the support that I need soon.
This afternoon I did nothing when I wanted and only did a few bits when I felt up to it. I won’t talk about this morning, the cafe is not a place to share.
Tomorrow I am going to a spa day with my sister as a belated birthday present from her. We have a massage booked and can spend the day on the hot beds and in the pool. It will be good to spend some time with her. She’s had a tough time during lockdown and she needs the day to relax.

Now to try some of your questions:

What is your favourite cocktail?
I have never had a cocktail!! 😮

If you could re-live one day of the past, which day would you choose and why?
I have a few key days which pop into my head. A few days when we were away on holiday as a family. But one day sticks in my head when we went out for a day to Chartwell. It is beautiful there. It was the last day when everyone was ok. It was the day before everything started. Perhaps I could rewind and relive the day and change what happened next. I’ve never been back, perhaps one day.

Are you looking forward to the winter and Halloween?
Not a fan of winter. Find the dark difficult and tiring.
and I’m terrified of having to drive in the snow. Never been a fan of Halloween. Used to do pumpkins when the kids were little but not now.

If you could pick the seasons which would be next?
Spring is probably my favourite season, not too hot or cold, flowers and lambs, trees back in leaf, more light.

Take care all you lovely people. I hope you are all doing ok tonight. *grouphug2

What is your favourite cocktail?
Margarita

If you could re-live one day of the past, which day would you choose and why?
I've had a lot of those, but not many recently lol. I'd probably pick a day from my youth when I was hanging out with my family at the park or one of the awesome Halloweens I celebrated as a kid.


Are you looking forward to the winter and Halloween? YES. Oh, yes.

What is your fave thing about Halloween? The costumes, giving out candy, the autumn weather, and just the excitement of it in general.

If you could pick the seasons which would be next? Autumn

Hey @Champagne ..... I'm opting in for tea again. no alcohol please. Ice... Please! 😁. Thanks so much for inviting me.... love the café....

How is your day going? Plain. I little too warm. Not much going on. I repotted a few house plants. I hope they're happy now.

What is happening this weekend for you? Not much except my own eager anticipation...

What is your favourite cocktail? G & T, whiskey sour, martini, Hagen Daz chocolate chocolate chip martini hmm what else???

If you could re-live one day of the past, which day would you choose and why? It hasn't happened yet but I'd love to relive it every so often after it does happen to celebrate how good it is

Are you looking forward to the winter and Halloween? Winter is a thing to look back on saying good riddance unless it had produced 18+ inch blizzards that refuse to melt until early spring and then quickly evaporate. Halloween I am looking forward to but with grown up kids and no one else to celebrate with, it's kind of sad.

What is your fave thing about Halloween? Circus peanuts and smarties. 388E3BED-F6B5-4CD7-BB00-D0D726D92F2E.jpeg 4FF090D2-74DC-4A26-BF00-1649DC507F6E.jpeg

If you could pick the seasons which would be next? Spring - particularly of 1952

I'm Wiccan, so Halloween (Samhain) is the most important Sabbat of the year

How is your day going? What is happening this weekend for you?

My plans for today worked out great. I am going to gain some weight. On the way to my friends house an hour away I stopped at Lux Cafe for breakfast. The entire city of Goshen police force was there. I ate the whole breakfast except for the last piece of toast, stuffed to the brim. I went to the house, installed the last piece of blocking, he is happy with the slide. I have to order four more slides and install them then he will be happy. He offered me a cup of coffee and I accepted. Fresh ground coffee. He was trained as a chef, now on disability. He pulled out a cake he had made, especially for the occasion, strawberry cake with strawberry frosting with strawberries on top. How could I refuse? I ate that into a belly stuffed with breakfast. When I burped a little bit came back up. 3 hours later my roommate and I went to Texas Roadhouse I ordered a 12 oz New York Strip Steak with loaded steak fries. There is enough left over for dinner tomorrow.

What is your favourite cocktail?

I am into whiskey right now, or scotch which is whisky made in Scotland. I had Glenlivet 12 today at Texas Roadhouse. I asked for a shot and she poured me a double, all that she had left. I drove home without incident. Probably would have blown over the limit. Did not feel any impairment at all.

If you could re-live one day of the past, which day would you choose and why?

My uncle's funeral, my dad's brother, I saw my dad cry. I did not want to cry. I stiffened my resolve and hardened my heart. For years after that I hardened my heart. I recognized that about age 45. If I could do it over again, just cry with my dad because my heart felt for him, leave my heart soft and caring.

Are you looking forward to the winter and Halloween?

It will be a tough winter and Halloween I was raised to believe is the Devil's holiday. It is tough to leave those brainwashed traditions behind, believe me.

What is your fave thing about Halloween?

my favorite thing about Halloween is corn candy.

If you could pick the seasons which would be next?

Spring is my favorite season. Everything come back from the dead.

Ty for tagging me @Champagne :) Curious to know your answers to all the q's too ;)

Day is going so-so, was kind of in a lot of psychological pain earlier (an hour ago or so) but glad to say I snapped out of it pretty quick at least, hoping that is a sign that I'm slowly getting stronger.
Nothing happening this weekend for me but gonna try to get more walking in cos need to get in better shape & drop a lot of pounds at this point, really want my body of a couple years ago back, miss it a lot.
Don't really have a fave cocktail cos I don't really drink (very rarely). When I used to be able to drink more then I liked paralyzers.

If you could re-live one day of the past, which day would you choose and why?
Anywhere from late June 2002 - November 2019 when I was near my sweet lil kitty who went to kitty heaven as of last December. She was a very special, perfect & loving kitty & I don't think I'll ever feel such a strong connection with any living being ever again, it was very powerful. Def. miss her a lot but she will always be alive in my heart.

Are you looking forward to the winter and Halloween?

Halloween yes, winter, not really.

What is your fave thing about Halloween?

Ohh hard one, love it for lots of things so I can't really pick just one. The colors, the candy, the costumes & pumpkins. It's my fave holiday, way less stressful than Xmas.

If you could pick the seasons which would be next?

Spring cos it's my fave season (fall is a VERY close second though).

If you could re-live one day of the past, which day would you choose and why? Any time with my grandma because that was the best.

So far going quite well.

What is your favourite cocktail?

Whiskey straight and neat.

If you could re-live one day of the past, which day would you choose and why?

The day my mother died, which I could have been there with her.

Are you looking forward to the winter and Halloween?

Halloween yes, the one day I can go out in public and nobody takes notice. Winter will probably be good but Winters in this area are typically not too cold so it is nice with the cool and crisp in the air.

What is your fave thing about Halloween?

As above, I can be myself and nobody says look at that weirdo! :)

If you could pick the seasons which would be next?

Spring. Fall and Spring are my favorite seasons with Fall most because Spring in Texas is more of Summer-Lite.

Thanks for the tag @Champagne

Today I had to do some reading and a quiz, which I could have done better on. But the reading was just so boring. Then I watched Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final. Dallas forced a Game 6, which is Monday.

What is your favourite cocktail?
I don't drink cocktails a lot, but mojitos are nice. Irish coffee when it's cold out. I want to try a Moscow mule but haven't had the chance.
If you could re-live one day of the past, which day would you choose and why?
IDK. Maybe when the Capitals won the Stanley Cup. Or when Spurs beat Ajax 3-2 in the second leg of the 2019 Champions League semifinal.
Are you looking forward to the winter and Halloween?
I'm not extremely excited about Halloween because it's just not as fun for me as it was when I was a kid, but I'm definitely excited for winter.
What is your fave thing about Halloween?
I like to buy myself some candy to eat on that day.
If you could pick the seasons which would be next?
I'd love for it to be winter now.
