(Various Shades of) Pink Saturday

It's a beautiful Saturday in New York City and time to join the fun for Pink Saturday. I know this title sounds close to "Fifty Shades of Grey," but it's a lot less racy. This tiny park sits between two office buildings and is just half a block from my eye doctor's office. It was the perfect place to sit outside and read before my appointment yesterday. I thought the impatiens would be a good choice for Pink Saturday.

I'm making every effort to relax and just let myself heal. My eye is feeling and looking much better and I am keeping track of the eleven times a day -- three different drops -- I need to treat it. I did get out for an outing and was delighted to find local apples at the fruit and veggie store. I also bought a lime and am going to treat myself to homemade guacamole tonight.

Any Keurig users in Buttercupland? I won a sample pack of "Brew Over Ice," which consists of four Keurig samples of iced tea and coffee. I'd like to send it to the first person who leaves a comment telling me they would like it. I'm not sure when I'll get to the post office, but I think it will be iced coffee/tea season for awhile. Today feels like a perfect summer day and there's very little humidity.

As always, thanks for visiting and have a pretty in pink Saturday!

Well I am a Keurig user but have never tried the iced-one. I would try it for sure. I love the pink impatients, they helped you relax a little.

Carol,

I am way behind in reading your blog posts. So sorry to hear about your foot. I broke a bone in my right foot when I had my left leg in a cast. Matching black boots. How cool. Take care of yourself.

Carol, I knew about the foot, but what happened to the eye? xo

Mary said...

Lovely pink impatiens! Wow! Eleven times a day with the eye drops. I hope it heals well and quickly! Rest, rest, rest, and oh yes, take it easy! :)

Lynn said...

11 times per day that is a lot, pretty impatiens photo, and I can well imagine the frustration of being laid up-

Love your "boot"! At least you don't have to worry babout what shoes to wear. Sorry then you had eye problems. We must be soul sisters, I had a broken fascia tendon in my right foot, then while dealing with that, a abraishon in my right eye. Literally from "head to toe!" All I can say is: "This, too, shall pass!" Keep your chin up, but watch where you are walking! :-) {{HUGS}} Joy
