Straight up OR on the Rocks!

My rain barrel is ready for me!
A wee bit early this year 
but at least I can quench my thirst
whenever I want!

 but what is this huge coin shaped white disc wedged into the opening?

 Let's get my trusty tongue into this discovery....

 It really seems to be in there for good...

 I thought I saw myself in there...if you cross your eyes...there!

I do know that whatever it is
I likes it "straight up"
because I can lick it
and 
I like it "on the rocks"
because it cools me off
after a good run at the beach!

  1. A rain barrel! That is something we don't have here. Yours looks very refreshing and "on the rocks"....or maybe just "on the rock."

    1. Yes...we bought our 1/2 rain barrels at Home Depot many years ago...and use them for many different things...water for Sophie of course...plant beans in them...sweet peas...and a multitude of other things...move the barrels around each year for variety...on the deck this year...Jim says and I say Okey Dokey...besides I love beans and they will be very close to EAT!

    1. Oh yes...freezing one night and the top 2 inches of the rain barrel had this coin of ice, so I worked at it and it came loose... so I turned it on it's side so Sophie could drink. I left it there and the next morning it was frozen upright...kinda cool I thought!
