I Heart Snow Cones


I was in snow cone heaven the other day at the pool.

We call them 'Kaki-gori' here, which literally translates to 'shaved ice.' This stand by the lazy river pool had snow cones in five different flavors. I got the Lemon flavor but there were also Strawberry, Melon, Mizore (colorless syrup), and Blue Hawaii.

Anybody want to join me?

What a joy it must have been. Close to half past four in the morning, still way too hot to sleep, I'd like to wish you all a wonderful Wednesday.

Ooh. I like learning what they're called in different countries! I'll have to remember that :-)

Hope it's sunny where you are, too!
