  1. wakey wakey! it's saturday! :spin:

    it's early evening here, so i've been "good". resisted starting the thread until now! wanted to give y'all "up/over's" time to reach the future!
    here in oz we had bacon and eggs for breakfast today! and i mean real bacon, not that miserable strip of fat with a sliver of bacon through it like what we had during our trip "up/over!" that's not bacon! oh, and quartered tomatoes too! plus toast. washed down with a nice hot cuppa. either tea or coffee, you choose. enjoy!
    have a great saturday everyone!

    Morning all!
    Hiya Gracie--sounds like the perfect breakfast. Make mine with coffee if you please!

    Hi JmGrn--yep...I'm up early to feed the beasts as well. i was off yesterday so I slept during the day and had a nice restful sleep so I think I've had enough and will stay up.

    Coffee is on! working on my 1st cup which is the best of the day. Last night it cooled off to the 50' beautiful was that? Had a lightweight throw on the bed and was actually chilly. Daytime is supposed to be 75-80 and cool in the evenings again. This is weather I can live with. Have a party to go to this evening. Dear friend, John is having a get-together and my fellow grads will be there...some of them I haven't seen since May so it should be a great time. Have to go to the store and get some ingredients to make my special Rio Rancho salad that John craves so much...erm...and a bottle of Grey Goose vodka (to drink...not waste in the salad!)

    Morning!! Yes REAL bacon is one thing I'll miss when we get to the USA.

    Here it's pouring with rain & is thoroughly grey, windy & miserable. Guess our summer is over already!

    Have a good day everyone xxx

    Good middle of the night from California . . .

    It would be Saturday night in Vietnam. Can't forget that yet.

    I couldn't sleep and got up at 2:30 a.m. to write some things down about my trip. I need to get back to sleep though . . . but Grace, your breakfast sounded good and I'm hungry now.

    Saturday is only 4 hours old here - but Happy Saturday nonetheless.

    good morning gang

    workday for me. we're meeting friends to bike at 10am and other than that no real plans.

    the weather is cooling off here, too. we've had the ac off since wednesday and it's been great to have fresh air in the house again. we live out in the country so we get great breezes (even though they sometimes carry some interesting scents).

    have a great day all.

    Good Morning Everybody!

    I should probably be saying good-night. I'm going to try and get some sleep before it's time to get up to go back in to work tonight. I don't think I'll be getting last night's assignment back. Wah! It was a good one for a change. They gave it to someone who's only there until three pm. We'll see what the day brings. Two more on and then off on Monday.

    Have a good weekend all!

    Morning all!

    Home from work....good night, can't complain....well I CAN but I won't !
    IT messing with internet passwords again....they have nothing better to no one could get online last night....they pull this on a Friday....and no access all weekend long. Day shift was in a 'right wicked snit' about it'll bet someone's phone will be ringing today..... . Those dayshifters can be an evil bunch of peeps....mess with their internet access and heads will roll! We use a lot of internet-based patient education pt teaching this weekend.

    Better head to down and two to go. Have a great weekend all. Thanks for breakfast was delicious!!

    Hi Grace.

    Heart attack and high triglycerides on a plate for breakfast? No thanks. bwahahahaha.................

    I'm off for the next four days. I have to finish up my course on Aging during this time. So I'll be busy with that. I think I have something like a final exam and three or four papers, to do by Tuesday. Ugh.

    I'm going to an art show opening tonight in Tampa which should be fun.

    Mornin' Y'all! show.....reminds me of the commercial, "We're walking, we're walking, we're looking"..something like a class fieldtrip at an art museum or something... I can't remember. lol

    Anyway...not much going on here. No class going on right now, my room is clean....I don't know what to do. LOL

    I was actually having major boredom last bored I watched Harry Potter with the kiddos. (I am not a movie fan...don't like to sit still that long unless I'm doing something else during the boring parts of the movie...i.e. study, surf online, eat, clean...something....)

    I hope y'all have a wonderful, spectacular day! BBL!

    Tweety - I love going to art shows. We went to a few galleries in Vietnam - one with those silk embroidery "paintings". Lovely.

    Well, I didn't sleep, just tossed and turned so I got up and brewed some coffee and read the paper. Now I'm headed out to jog since the sun is up.

    I have to make 3 dozen cookies for my son's preschool lemonade booth at the cutting show. (This is a show with cutting horses - lots of bigwig pretend cowboys and huge horse trailers - lots of income for our little valley though).

    The reunion starts at noon and goes until midnight . . . . it is my dh's 35th high school reunion. Yes, I married an old man. :spin:
