PINK SATURDAY

THANKS BEVERLY FOR ANOTHER PINK SATURDAY!

Pink_Saturday

YESTERDAY WE HAD A ONE TABLE BRIDGE GAME, HELPING A LADY THAT IS JUST LEARNING TO PLAY.   I SERVED CHICKEN SALAD, FRESH FRUIT, AND ASSTORED OLIVES AND ANTIPASTO WITH CRACKERS AND RASPBERRY TEA AND LATER ASST CHEESE CAKE WITH COFFEE.  IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE PIZZA AND TEA, BUT I THOUGHT I WOULD FANCY IT UP JUST A BIT AND I FIXED A PRETTY LITTLE TABLE FOR FOUR. WELL EVERYTHING WAS RECEIVED WITH WOO AND AWW AND THEN THE HORROR STORY STARTED.

IF YOU ARE A BRIDGE PLAYER, YOU WILL UNDERSTAND……OUT OF 8 GAMES I COULD ONLY BID ONE TIME, MOST OF MY HANDS HAD A TOTAL OF 2-4 POINTS.  IT WAS A NIGTMARE AND ON TOP OF THAT IT WAS POURING DOWN RAIN AND SO I HAD THREE DOGS AND SEVERAL CATS IN THE HOUSE, NOT TO MENTION 2 VERY UNHAPPY BABY GOATS WHO WERE PENNED UP IN A BABY PLAY PEN………OH YES AND THE PHONE RANG ABOUT 6 TIMES.

DURING ALL OF THIS I HAD 2 YOUNG MEN CLEANING MY CAR OUTSIDE AND THEN PUTTING IT IN THE GARAGE AND TRYING TO PUT ON ON  OF THOSE CLEAR BRA’S THAT KEEP THE FRONT OF YOUR CAR FROM BEING PECKED TO DEATH BY ROCK….REMEMBER I LIVE IN THE COUNTRY..WELL THEY COULDN’T FINISH BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH LIGHT…SO THAT IS ANOTHER DAY I MUST GO TO COLLEGE STATION AND ON TOP OF THAT THEY DROVE BACK TO COLLEGE STATION WITH MY ONLY SET OF KEYS TO MY CAR…….SO ONE HAD TO TURN AROUND AND DIVE 60 MILES ONE WAY TO BRING THE KEYS BACK AND IT IS STILL RAINING CATS AND DOGS.

This is my contributions to Pink Saturday, but thanks for let me blow of a little steam about yesterday. Isn’t that what friends are for?

What would I do without all of you?

What lovely pink-a-licious goodies this week. I could get lost in pink and never return☺ Beverly didn't know it but she made my day when she came up with this day to celebrate my favorite color!

Wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday and a wonderful weekend full of sunshine and l♥ve!

You have me laughing. The part I liked best was the baby goats in the playpen. I guess life isn't dull out in the country? It sounds just as stressful as here! Enjoyed your pinks!

What a day you had!! The old saying "when it rains, it pours" certainly fits your day in more than one way, right?! LOL

Love all the flowers, especially that last one of the stacked pots...so unique and pretty.

Thanks so much sweet friend for the award. I'm truly touched.

Hugs!
Kat

Hi Barbara, Kind of late for Pink Sat, but here I am. We were gone all day Sat. No time for visiting. Ok, I am a bridge player. I can really understand the no cards frustration. Add on all of the other stuff and I probably would have lost it. At least you had the presence of mind to still post pink Sat. You rock!!! BIG smile. Your pink was terrific. Have you calmed down a bit? LOL.

You get extra big hugs today...Jeanne

Sounds like a very lovely lunch you served. I don't know how to play bridge. The frustration part I understand. Seems like your day was going okay until bridge time, then your horror story started, something out of "Hitchcock". Hope this week is going okay.

Deanna said...

Hi Barbara dear! I do wish I knew how to play bridge but you vent all you want! We'll give you some big big huggins!

Where did you get that wonderfully whimsical stacked flower pot beauty?
