Pink Ice in Pool

Good morning to all...

I decided to throw away the old ice out of the freezer last night about dusk...so I thought I'd snap a picture...didn't take long to melt..but I don't know why the ice is pink and the pool looks gray..thought it looked cool..so here it is..

I sure enjoyed the little bit of rain we got yesterday afternoon...could have used more..I still have to add water to  the pool ..It was a comfortable 74 at 3:30 a.m. this morning at my place..

It's grocery day...so gotta get my list started and menu planning...Hope you all have a great day....stay cool...

Good afternoon...

It's a hot, hot 92.5 degrees, according to my Weather Channel thermometer in the shade of the lanai.  It's also showing some cloud/rain drops.

We might be getting some of the 20% chance of rain..Bobby was talking about this a.m. We sure could use it...my weeds need water.

Been stuck inside today...my neighbors behind me are getting a new roof...lots of noise...so lanai time will be later when the sun goes down.

Hope everyone is having a good day...enjoy your evening too.

Good morning to all,

It's currently 74 at my place this morning. Hope everyone will be getting their hurricane supplies ready.  When my husband was in the Air Force for 21 yrs, one of his jobs was survival instructor. So we are always prepared. If we travel in the winter, we have all the items need to make it through a cold night. So we take this hurricane supplies kit seriously. I hope, everyone in Florida will get ready in advance.

Have a great day!

Good morning Suncoast...

Our weather is hot and humid and 77 here in W. Bradenton. I've been watching all the terrible pictures from Joplin, Mo and in Minnesota.

Please, send out prayers to all the families that lost loved ones and their homes and business.  Please, also pray that we do not have the hurricanes that they are predicting.

Hope your day will be a good one.
