Morning, Bernadette! Glad you could join us. Do you have a muffin, or maybe a bagel? I'm hungry. Ask Lynne.
To board the struggle bus: no whining, board with a smile, a fake one will be found out and put off at next stop, no maps, no directions, going only one way, one destination. Follow all rules and you will arrive. Drop off at pearly gate. Bring nothing.

 :lol:

I don't usually eat breakfast these days. Just a snack in the afternoon, dinner, and a snack in the evening lately. Though my aunt did make some excellent double-chocolate muffins yesterday for my birthday. They are literally the best muffins I've ever eaten (and I've eaten a few!). Help yourself.  :)

Thank you Bernadette, they sound wonderful. Do they have even a tiny bit of fiber in them so I can justify this decadence?

Happy birthday Bernadette! Can't believe I missed that in your post. Too busy thinking up snark for Lynne. Happy, holy day to you, sweetheart. I can say that. I am old enough to be your mother!

How kind of you! My birthday was Sunday, the day our Parish Mission started. :) The muffins are late, but I consider it sort of a "birthday week" kind of thing.  ;)

Well, chocolate's good for moving the digestive system along.

A heart felt good morning to all. No saccharine here! It's raining and who cares! Still a good morning. OC, I drank some angry orchards yesterday. Good idea about AO. You inspired me to buy some for the wedding. You would not believe the left overs. It was cold, and it seems the order of the day was COLD beer. Go figure. Hot beef rib tips and wings left over. Party at my house tonight! And no, it's not a hoe down, even if it's in my barn.

Chestertonian, we will help you without you having to get out of chair. No we are not specifically wheelchair accessible, but the barn doors are wide and no steps. Unless you want to go to loft. I do not recommend that. What if we drop you?

If the home schoolers I know make a catapult, belive me, we just may have to peel you off the ceiling or side of the barn. Ches, we don't want that.

I'm working from home today. Had a bagel. I'm cold but don't want to turn the heat on. I may have another cup of coffee...

Grab an afghan, and have a great day Lynne! Do you prefer working from home? I'm afraid I would not be so disciplined if I worked at home.

I like working from home but I wouldn't want to have to do it every day. My job is kind of strange, I have specific tasks to do each month and when those tasks are done, I look for busy work to do (on my computer). Today, I'm in busy work mode.

My in laws stopped by after dinner last night, and my mother in law brought  a container of muffins.  The kids wiped them out for breakfast, though.....none left to share.  Good thing you aren't hungry today, Carleen!  ;)
