Pink Sky Pink Saturday

Pink Saturday Pink Sky

I had a completely different post planned for Pink Saturday. But last night around 8:30 I looked out of my kitchen window and this was my view. I put on my shoes, grabbed my keys and phone and ran out to the street. This was my reward, not a red sky at night, but the most beautiful pink sky. 

The saying goes that a red sky -- or pink sky -- brings a sailor's delight. Unfortunately that gorgeous sky brought the most humid day of the 2020, so far. We've had mostly very nice weather in May and June, and I'd completely forgotten what a hot and sticky summer day is like. Today refreshed my memory. 

I've been thinking about outdoor dining, but hadn't factored the weather into my plans. Most days in July are too humid for eating out of doors past 10:00 in the morning. I'm hoping to treat myself to an actual restaurant meal eaten at a restaurant very soon, and breakfast or just an iced coffee may be my first venture out. I've been scouting the neighborhood and will, of course, share photos. 

I've got a quiet week ahead, but plan to catch up on postcards, decluttering and reading. I've also got a few new "firsts" that I hope to enjoy, as well.

As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care. Much love and stay well.

It is gorgeous, especially framed by the tall buildings. And bright yellow on the bottom!

It is truly a beautiful photo. It gives hope that all will be alright.

Were you able to get my email through the "Follow By Email Tab?" I also sent it to Darlene and asked her to send it on to you.

Wishing all a great week. I cannot believe that July will arrive in just a few days.

So happy you captured this pretty pink sky. I look forward to you dining out and sharing with us. It's hot and humid here too. I've been walking at 6 a.m. for the past week or so. I wish you a wonderful Monday.

The really is spectacular. We were told that we would see some pretty sunsets with the Saharan dust but it's been dull this last few nights. Enjoy your week! I hope you have a good one!

A pink sky like that would make one want to be outside to enjoy it. We've had a few hot and humid days, but I stay inside in the a/c and keep comfortable. Trying enjoy these summer days in the best way possible. hope you enjoy your summer in the best way possible.

You took a great photo of my favorite color in the sky.

Yes, that sticky, hot weather is back. I was working in my gardens today and after half an hour, I was soaked with sweat.

I hope you get a chance soon to stop for some iced coffee, Carol. We all need “normal” events in our lives.
