Pink Party!





Hi Pinkies! I am having a rough week. Technologically speaking! My new cell phone is charging and it is a purple awesome dream! But my laptop which is 2 years old in May 2011 is going to need a new battery ($150) and a new shell ($60). I think it is absolutely awful that companies have such little pride in their work that they mass produce junk! So I am going to have to buy a new lap top and teach my youngest son a lesson  learning and finance.  If he wants a lap top he will have to save money from his paychecks to buy the parts needed for the laptop so he can use it.
But I did not want to write a sad post so I wanted to share a couple simple recipes for cool summery drinks! I know we are stuck in the dead of winter and where I live more snow is expected this evening into the weekend. But we can all dream can't we? So well I am cleaning up this mess from my laptop and removing all my files and photos I am using a google image or two to show you these cool drinks. I would never use any images that I would not credit the owner of the photo but this google image stuff is complicated and why does it end up on the image site if you can use it to make a point or show you a recipe in thsi case. Argh... So these are not my images but they give you an idea about what you can expect when you create this easy summer drinks.
The mosaic picture shows a dreamy creamy punch that is easy to make and works well for a bridal or baby shower! Just add a can of pink lemonade consentrate to a large punch bowl and use the ginger ale or sparkling water in place of the water. Add a liter bottle of ginger ale or sparkling water. Add a quart of raspberry sherbert. Simple and delicious. For simple lemonade punch just combine a can of pink lemonade and follow the directions on the can. Add some sliced citrus fruit, preferably lemons and you have a nice pitcher of cool lemonade . You can add ice for a frosty poolside treat!
Now winter won't seem so long or cold. Next stop by Beverly's and thank her for being a super cool hostess of the weekly meme Pink Saturday. Then visit spome pinkies. That is where I am headed now.

I hear you girl ! Mine had the same problems. Also, my laptop was also becoming cranky and would sometimes take a long time to start or would not. It needs a lot of coaxing (rebooting and starting again) before it sometimes would stay alive for a couple of hours and then...phish. I got so frustrated , it just drove me nuts!

Anyway, what a lovely refreshing post on PINK today! The lemonade in pink looks gorgeous! :) Wishing you a lovely weekend!

Smiles,
Silver

I share this with you, sweet friend ~

STRONG PERSON
A strong person knows how to keep their life in order. Even with tears in their eyes, they still manage to say "I'm ok" with a smile. God is good. Change is coming. God saw your sadness and said hard times are over.

Thank you for bearing with me, I am over the hump & will be back up on Monday for sure. Sorry, but you know how it goes with this med issue.

Happy PS Saturday, sweetie
Have a beautiful day ~

It must be this darn cold weather or gremlins in our computers. I just changed my blog and can't get the header photo big enough!

Tomorrow is another day my friend!
