Sorry for Lack of Updates
Things here are on a crazy hold because we’re in financial schtuck because of taxes and houses and things. Though we have had a bunch of nifty coins donated by my (Cat’s) Dad from various countries. I have not done a full count yet, but I think we’d have a nice area to cover from that. So, all our focus is going to this: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/258996?a=1101419 ...
Now that I have access to truly decaffeinated tea I can say that I’ve reworked Peaceful Dreams. Taste tests really couldn’t determine if it was better with peppermint or spearmint, so since we can make to order we will offer the blend with either or both. Thunderstorm’s electrical interference pending it should be in the shopping cart by the end of the day. Sencha Green Decaf...
I’m sorry there’s no real update about the cafe this week; but I’ve been a bit freaked out about a more dire money situation that we’re in so Becca and I haven’t really done much planning cafe-wise. I’m $275.76 short of the morgage this month and I’m trying to raise the funds. I have a fundraiser up here:...
Bread for Bread
Today we made bread :) Bakery cafe’s need lots of bread after all. This is two batches of dough and we made three loaves, two dozen clover leaf rolls and some bread knots with the left over dough. So, this is our Honey Wheat Bread. We’ll be trying out other recipes over the next few weeks because we want to have lots of yummy healthy breads to offer over the course of a week.

ssfseiyakou: magicmondaycafe: Today Becca and I are sitting down and collating recipes for the food we’ll have on our menu. We’ve been going through muffin recipes for the past hour and now I’m really hungry :) Now we’re going through other sweet treats we might offer such as pies and brownies. Yesterday was soup day. We’re also going to go through different lemonades and healthy soft...

This week, we got a nifty wolf card from Bigger on the Inside purveyors of fine hand-made books :) Check them out; and thank you so much! 991 US pennies * 6 Canadian pennies and a 2 euro coin * denotes updated totals. If you would like to send us pennies for our floor, please mail them to: Magic Monday Cafe P.O. Box 2410 Umatilla, FL 32784
walk-your-talk: magicmondaycafe: While we were away our good friends Patti & Steph from Starlit Creations and Last Chance Myu sent us 300 pennies! Thanks so much ladies! We also received three pennies from Munchkin which he found on the floor and were probably mine to begin with ;) Our current total stands at 980 US pennies * 6 Canadian pennies and a 2 euro coin * denotes updated...

I feel comfortable sharing this now as we’ve heard from the building owners that they’ve received it. It seems our initial send didn’t go through and then we were out of town and various things. So, they have the floor plan now and you guys can see how we’re hoping to set things out. The blue room would be where the pennies go! We had a hiccup with the P.O.Box turns...
IMPORTANT Address Correction
Apparently there was a mix-up somewhere between the written record and the actual box. Our address is Magic Monday Cafe P.O. Box 2410 Umatilla, FL 32784 Many, many apologies. I went off the paper the post office had printed as I thought I was mis-remembering, and then we return from vacation and it turns out the boxes don’t go that high and our key opens 2410. So, if your pennies get...
Penny Total of the Week
Over the weekend we received our first two penny donations by mail! Our current total is: 677 US pennies * 6 Canadian pennies * and a 2 euro coin * denotes updated totals. We had a donation of U.S. & Canadian pennies from N.R. Minor-Architect on livejournal, who found us via the livejournal Crowdfunding Community. N.R. let me know that the Canadian mint isn’t producing pennies...
We have a ticker now! It’s cute! Thanks to the munchkin’s generous trading of pennies from his piggy bank for “silver coins” from my wallet we now have: 658 US pennies 3 Canadian pennies (!) and a 2 euro coin (which I forgot to say was found by Becca’s son) This is our overall fundraising total which looks equally daunting: Thank you to all of you who have...
Send Us Your Pennies!
So, here’s our big announcement! In striving to make our cafe as nifty as humanly possible we’re customizing as much as we can. We have a friend who is going to paint a brilliant mural holding our menu board along the back wall and any other large walls we have. Each table and chair we purchase from Habitat, Goodwill or other local thrift places is going to be an individual work of art. Then...
We have the P.O. Box for the pennies!
Send your pennies to: Magic Monday Cafe P.O. Box 2410 Umatilla, FL 32784 As said before, when we receive and log pennies we’ll thank everyone in a weekly round-up post, and you’ll be listed on our website under a special section of the “Thank You” page.
Pennies Update and Mug Question!
Already we’re feeling the love with regards the penny donations! Thank you SO MUCH everyone who has spoken about the pennies, volunteered pennies and so on. We’re intending to get a P.O. Box set up, but so far that hasn’t happened :( as we had some rather distracting mug-related issues today. We’re trying to test-paint up some mugs as we want to be able to give away tea...
Floor Plan Sent!
We’ve been struggling with our floor plan for several months. We tried to lay things out in Sims but it has weird rules about placing and you can’t change the size of things to fit the specifications you might find online for your appliances. We’ve tried using graph paper but it gets really confusing, and pitted with erasings and lines and things. Today Becca found a program...
