    Good Morning Zoe and to all that follow.

    Zoe....Good morning.......didn't see the turkey last week while I was home, but I didn't get out too much, playing with the grandkid and it rained most of the time I was there.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful day today........

    I couldn't sleep tonite, so came to join the early fun---my usual time!!
    I go back to work Monday nite---gosh, 3 weeks sure flew by!!

    Now that's it's time to go back to work, I have a bad cold, along with it, I seem to have an ear problem--ear ache & it feels "stopped up", decreased hearing in that ear.

    Oh well, that too will pass!!

    Zoe, thanks for starting our thread.
    Green tea ice cream tastes just like green tea---LOL!! That's the onlyt way I can describe it. DH hates it---says it's tasteless to him.
    I find it refreshing after the meal.

    Extra, good morning to you!!

    Well, I hope everyone has a good Saturday!!
    See you all later

    Morning all! Work day for me (3-11). Grey, cloudy and sprinkly out there today. Had a lot of rain last couple of days and suddenly the grass has turned green and trees have little buds on them that weren't there before.
    Hope everyone has a great day/weekend.

    Good morning!

    Waking up with a strong cup of coffee. I think it's just going to be a relaxing day. Most of the chores are done, but the back yard seriously needs mowing.

    good morning all.

    I played hooky from my writing yesterday. A friend called and asked me if I wanted to go in town with her for some shopping (at Costco!) and lunch. We also ended up going to a farmer's market. Nice day, but today I have to get some work done. I won't have time tomorrow because I have to do my son's belated birthday dinner.

    Grey and cool here today. Blech. I'll have to do some taxi driving this morning. Youngest son has to finish his community service for school and he has to be in town for 10, dd starts work, also in town, for 9 and I promised her a lift in. Hmm, I wonder if my oldest would be up and would drive them. Oh, right. What am I thinking??? Him? Up? This early in the morning? On a weekend? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Good afternoon all - it's 12:45 UK time here.

    Sorry I haven't been in much of late - started my new job this week - it's where I used to work a year ago and it was soooo the right move - it has been like going home, except things have changed a lot. I am still unpacking and trying to get the house straight, plus I've got a couple of articles to review for a nursing journal, so that's my weekend written off I guess - lol!
    DD is ok in Germany, DH is watching TV and DS is at work - so I'm off to have a soak in the bath before I start my unpacking...

    Green tea ice cream sounds kinda weird - prefer tuttifruiti, raspberry ripple or vanilla myself.

    Morning all!
    Getting back into life's usual routines post-vacation. Must tackle Laundry Mountain today and head to WalMart. One does not survive on coffee alone!

    Good morning to you all (except Fone and Grace, I know you're somewhere else in the time zones, lol!)!

    Getting ready for Sabbath School here.

    Mary Ann, I LOVE green tea ice cream!! There's a sushi place near us that makes a green tea custard --- a flan-like creation, with the sauce on top, and a little whipped cream, and a few mandarin oranges on the side. It is LOVELY!!! So, yes, I do like green tea (especially at Japanese restaurants ) and all the derivatives I've tried. Have you tried mochi? It's ice cream with a soft rice flour "shell." Two bites and you're done. Sometimes it's a nice (smaller) alternative to a whole serving of the ice cream. Come to think of it, I NEVER order mochi (pronounced moh-chee), I ALWAYS have the serving of the ice cream, lol! Dh loves plum wine ice cream.

    OK, gotta go get ready. BBL! Have a good day!

    Hi Again,

    I did eventually get some sleep last nite, but it was in my chair instead of in bed!! Oh well, at least I got some sleep; my ear is still hurting & DH put some drops in it---don't know if they still do that for earache or not-----it's been years since I had one.

    Di--*I didn't see any mochi on the menu, altho, I think it was on the menu of the place we ate at in Texas.
    They did have red bean ice cream and they also had the green tea ice cream with red bean paste on topl I didn't try that because DH & I were sharing & he is not so adventutous!! LOL!! I love that green tea ice cream as well as green tea.
    I could eat sushi & sashimi any day!!

    Hope everyone has a great day----only 2 more days before it's back to work!!
