Happy Pink Saturday!!

It's Pink Saturday again. Today I thought I'd share with you the last pink flowers on my lawn. I'm not quite sure what these are.
I must apologize for my lack of posting lately. I just haven't been that motivated to do anything. Since August 16th, I've been working at a job where I was standing for 8+ hours a day, so I was pretty tired at the end of the day, and just wanted to sit.
These are some impatiens and some other plant in a pot by the corner steps.
I've been pretty bummed out lately, today I think I realized it's partly because I haven't been outside much. I had finished my standing job, and ran a few errands, walking around getting groceries and items for one of my Yahoo! groups.
A further away shot of the impatiens and other plant:
The cool air and wind helped me alot, but then I came back and took a nap, and I've been pretty wiped out since.
I've been pretty depressed since I learned the store (another one of my jobs) will be closing soon, learned the actual date today, and the thought of having to find another job, plus my parents trying to help me, has not helped. I was extremely depressed yesterday, but I spent the whole day on the couch and watching TV.
Some of our roses in the corner garden (and that glorious pot hole in the background).
I'm hoping to get out and do a little walking, now that it's not so warm (or shouldn't be as fall is on it's way). That will definitely help my mood, not so much the job situation, but I need my mood to be better.
Another view of the roses on the corner:
So, hopefully visiting the Pink Saturday participants and going out to the All-American Weekend tomorrow will help.
The roses I like the best in our yard:

I hope you enjoyed my Pink Saturday post, sorry about the not so exciting narrative, but hopefully the pictures were nice.

Your flowers are beautiful! Sorry you're having a rough time... Maybe you can take a little bit and visit some of the other blogs for a little cheering up? Hope things get better for you!

At least you have these beautiful flowers to look at-mine are all dead. I know what you mean by being exhausted at the end of each day-try and take some time to do some things to relax-read a book, take a long bath, or just sit and watch the birds.

Thanks for showing the PINK flowers today :D

I agree...visiting some of the piNkiES today should cheer you up...

Come visit me...I have PINK on a carosel horse...

It gets better: God blesses the people who patiently endure testing. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him. James 1:12

I love your flowers! I think the first is a geranium. I am sorry to here about where you work. There are so many people here out of a job due to businesses closing - I am praying for a turn around! Getting out in the garden always helps my moods and getting out and helping people!
I hope you have a delightsome PInk Saturday,

Looks like you and I were both paying tribute to what's left of our gardens! Love all your pinks... the first pic are geraniums (I think). Have a wonderful weekend! :) mercedes
