Sittin' on the Patio

The other day I mentioned heading to Starbucks for the pumpkin spice latte. Well, I thought I'd share a couple of photos. My daughter and I were enjoying a nice cool evening after a long day shopping at the mall. She had a brand new iPhone and wanted to snap photos.

After declaring me too shiny (see first photo, left), she powdered my face, told me to move so I covered a car behind me, then snapped the next shot. :) Yes, I'm sure we looked strange to people inside watching the whole thing! Nevertheless, we had a good time.

There's something special about eating outdoors. That's why Ruthy and I hope you'll enjoy our little cafe and our patio. Pull up a chair (and powder your face if needed!) and sit a while. Enjoy the nice fall weather as well as some of Ruthy's amazing pastries. And of course, a nice coffee.


  1. I just changed us back to a Blogger template. I hope this will make commenting easier! Please leave some comments so we can test it out. :)

  2. I love eating outdoors, too. But only when it's warm and sunny. It also makes it nicer if someone else does the cooking!

  3. I'm the same way, Myra. I'll choose a restaurant that has a patio just for that reason! Some of my favs:
    PF Chang's
    Taco Macs
    On the Border
    Five Guys

  4. Testing, testing!!! ;)

    Lovin' the paisley in autumn tones! This makes me feel better about bare-midriff fashions coming back.



    Okay, back to Starbucks and outside. I love eating outside because wintr is l-o-n-g here. Spring is cold and wet and muddy. Summer and fall are gorgeous. Just wonderful. So eating outside, walking the pier, visiting the beaches along Lake Ontario or the town park. I just love it. And I rarely get Starbucks here because it's a twenty-minute ride so my Keurig keeps me from becoming news-worthy as a mass-murderer.

    Because that's SO BAD FOR YOUR WRITING CAREER, you know???

    Good job, Missy Tippens!

  5. Heavens no, we don't want your name tied to a caffeine-deprived crime spree!! Thank you, Keurig!


  6. Hi Missy and Ruthy,

    Loving the new look and all the pictures!

  7. Missy, you have such a slim face. Beautiful

  8. Thank you, Tina! The diet has helped. :)
