I'm not usually at Panera's in the afternoon, but why not? I'd like to have my own private cubby here, with a privacy screen in Panera's warm, harvest gold/orange/vanilla colors. Why? To do hair. My clients would come in on their lunch break. They'd all be friends with me. We'd talk while I 'worked' (if you can call it work). I'd schedule regular breaks to sit at my favorite table with my laptop. I'd have a bagel with cream cheese every day for breakfast with dark roasted coffee. For lunch I'd have a cup of soup and a half salad, with an apple. Dinner could be the same. I don't think I'd get tired of it. I'd become friendly with all the regulars. I'd feel like I was entertaining at home. I'm having a great day dream here. Too bad it couldn't work. I'd have to leave my job. I couldn't do that. I have a home to take care of. Not to mention a daughter. Well, a girl can dream, right? In the meantime, I'll come here and visit when I can. And dream.

What a lovely idea! I'd so like to have a place like that to come to! Why does reality always have to ground our dreams? Sigh

You made me smile with this post. I would love to live at an A.A. meeting. That way I always had a support group around me at the ready. I could blog from my laptop and watch television in the foyer. Maggie and Rosa might get out done with me though! hah! Glad you are enjoying your day off and thanks so much for the email today!

You know, that is a great concept. To have a gourmet coffee shop with good sandwiches, soup and salads, and be able to get your hair done and other services. You should talk to P&M about it! Oh, and good desserts too.

Oh, I'm a Panera girl too! Unfortunately my family doesn't like it, so I have to beg and plead or sneak off by myself in order to go there! Next time I'm in MD, we'll have to plan a lunch there! You know, when I was in MD last week, I actually heard my mom say that she was SICK of Panera!! I almost fell over! :)
Loving your blog!
