Caramel’s Cafe Has Loved Having You!!!

We are thrilled that so many fabulous bloggers came to place a drinks order and have a chat with us every Wednesday here on WordPress! This is the last week of CARAMEL’S CAFE…but don’t worry – we have more in store for you to keep you warm through winter!

Coffee, Caramel Macchiato, Cappuccino

We are all getting used to rules chopping and changing from week to week, so there are not rules at CARAMEL’S CAFE. The more the merrier!

So please feel free to place a drink’s order in the comments below. Jack is going to make the drinks. I am here as your cheerful hostess with the mostess.

For the last week at CARAMEL’S CAFE (yes that’s right everyone, normal cafes are back open next week!) we have picked a song that we want you all to sing along to with me and Jack. To help you we found a video with the lyrics on the screen! Do it – go on, I know you want to….. 🙂

    1. lol – I do not believe it!!! I expect those who walk the boards professionally to be able to belt out a tune at the drop of a hat!!! 🙂

      Love the choices for drinks – it has been such a very long time since I had hot chocolate with marshmallows – such a great treat! ❤

  2. Thursday is Thanksgiving in the US. I’m off work until Monday. But I’m not very excited this year because of all the COVID restrictions. I’m not supposed to be traveling overnight. It would just be me and my parents this year anyway (and taking a plate of food to Grandma in a socially distanced way later), so it’s not a big gathering, but I haven’t decided if I’m going to make a long day trip out of it or go overnight and hope I don’t get caught (although a lot of local law enforcement has said they won’t be actually enforcing the curfew with fines or jail time or anything).

    Grandma turns 100 the weekend after next, so I’m probably going to drive home for the day for that too. She doesn’t want a big party, but I’d at least like to stop by and say hi from six feet away, and I heard some other relatives might be in town for that. It’s about a three hour drive from here, so like I said, it’s doable as a day trip but kind of a long day. We’ll see.

    I’ve been really depressed a lot lately, even more so than usual. But I did get a nice surprise in the mail today from my job; I can’t explain in detail since I don’t say what I do for work here, for spoiler reasons, but basically some nice notes for Thanksgiving from some people I work with.

    I’ll have the usual, hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream. How are you?

    1. Hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream for you Greg.

      I am fine – thank you. Work is busy – lock down ends next week and I think maybe work will be even busier then. We will see!

      So great your grandma is turning 100! I used to work for gentleman who was over 100. I think he reached 106. He would sneak into the garden while I was cooking, and before I noticed he was missing, he would slam a bunch of carrots he had dug up from his garden on the counter and ask me to prepare them for dinner. He was unstoppable!! I used to drive him around on visits to people who treated him like a celebrity. It was so much fun!

      He seemed to struggle to remember my name, so he always called me “Liverpool”.

      My American friends cancelled their plans to fly home for Thanksgiving, so they are connecting with their family via zoom.

      This year has taken a toll Greg. I was walking to work the other day, and I was thinking to myself that some days I feel kind of hollow. I have my wonderful Jack and so much to look forward to, but it is so strange being seperated from all the people and activities that make up my world. In some ways I am glad to have been working because the time has passed quickly. But I am tired, and the dark makes me feel a little low at this time of year.

      1. Thank you!

        Work is always busy for me. I know I’m fortunate to have a job right now, but it’s more work than ever and less rewarding than ever. I am making a lot more money this year than I ever thought I’d see, for reasons unrelated to COVID, but that doesn’t even help me feel better because everything fun to spend it on is shut down. And because of a health issue unrelated to COVID and unnecessarily inflexible rules about when one can return to work, I might not even be able to work anymore once we do reopen in person. If that ends up being the case and the rules end up as inflexible as they sound on paper, I just might have to sell the house and move somewhere else far away where the rules aren’t so inflexible, and where I probably wouldn’t be getting paid anywhere near what I’m making now… :\

        That’s a cool story about the guy you used to work for 🙂 People seem to live a long time in my grandma’s family. Her older brother passed last winter a few weeks before he turned 101, and she has sisters still alive at 95 and 97. Their mother, my great-grandmother, she passed away at age 88 when I was a kid, but she was the only person I ever knew personally who was born in the 1800s. She was born in 1897 (in France, which also makes her my most recent immigrant ancestor).

        I’m now hearing that at least one of the annual events that I look forward to every year (see the 4/22/95 episode of my blog) that was canceled for 2020 has been canceled for 2021 as well. I’m not surprised, given the way things are right now, but I am disappointed and discouraged. I may have said this before, but the most recent episode of my blog is a happy and joyful and hopeful one, and it was hard to write because that’s the opposite of how I’m feeling right now.

        Hollow. That’s a good word for it. But, yes, the time is passing quickly, which I guess considering that the last two years of my life have been a living hell, the passing quickly is at least a small consolation.


  3. Robert says he likes the sound of these hot chocolates you have been making.
    I would like something to get me in the mood for next month. Do you have something like fruit punch or a festive wine?

    1. Are you thinking of mulled wine Annette? We will start mulling it over.

      Yes, I noticed we had a lot of hot chocolate requests this month. Delicious! ❤
