Blue Monday - Closing!

It's Blue Monday! To participate:

1. Post about something blue on your blog. It can be pretty, ugly, funny, old, or new as long as it's blue. Leave a link to this blog on your post.

2. Place the Blue Monday button on the top of your post so that people can easily spot it. Place another Blue Monday button on the sidebar of your blog.

3. Mr. Linky will be up after midnight. Return here and link in with Mr. Linky by leaving your name and the Permalink to your post. To create a Permalink, click on your Blue Monday post title and copy all the stuff in the http window. It is a longer address so that people can find your post even later in the week--whenever they get a chance to visit.

4. Leave me a comment. I promise that I will visit you and leave you a commet. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.


We close on our South Florida home this coming Thursday. I hope our skies are this blue and that the new owners will enjoy this home as much as we have.

We'll move into our temporary apartment in the Tampa area this week and wait for our new home to be built. It'll be good to say, "Ahhh" at the end of this hectic week.

I will be posting each and every day, so please plan to come back. I always return visits and comments.

With the view from your back yard I am not surprised that your home sold so quickly... Now you are almost in my back yard... We are just over the bridge in Pinellas County... Hope all goes well for you & your new home...

Best wishes for you these last few days. I bet they are exciting and a little nerve wracking at the same time.

LV said...

Moving is never fun, but I am sure you and family will adjust well. I do so enjoy your Blue Monday post, and will to try to participate when I find nice blue items.

Bridget said...

I know it will be hard handing over the keys. Just keep the image of your new house in your mind to get you through it.

You gave me a good scare with the title of this post...I thought you were closing the door on Blue Monday.

ellen b said...

I can only imagine what these weeks have been like for you packing up and now moving. Blessings on you as you move into the apartment and wait for your home to be built!!

Debbie@Like a Rose said...

My first time to do Blue Monday!

Goodluck with the home building and congrats on selling yours.

Tea said...

Blue skies for you!

Unknown said...

Best wishes on this new venture and chapter in your lives, Sally! I look forward to hearing about the progress of your home and settling into the apartment!

I have no blue monday post today but I had to see how things were going for you. We have lived in the same house for over 30 years, I can't even begin to imagine packing for a move! But I'm so excited for you in this adventure!

Hi Sally, Congrats---almost!!!! Soon you will begin your NEW life!!! WELL--it won't really be 'new' 'til your home is built. But--maybe the interim time will help you just getting to know people, finding doctors, churches, directions to get around the area, etc...

GIVEAWAY on my blog--today only!! Pass the word.

Have a great day.

NatureFootstep Photo said...

that was strange, because I was absolutely certain I DID comment on the blue sky. But there has been a lot of trouble with blogspot access tody.
maybe my comment was lost in cyberspace. :(
Have a nice day :)

Susan said...

Sorry...didn't mean to pass by you.
I love your photo- congrats on the closing. Hope all goes smooth.Happy Blue Monday! This is such fun thanks for doing it!

Ashley ~ said...

Sally, I left you a comment last night, it's the 5th one on the list. But, I wanted to leave another one to thank you for letting me flaunt the "teal" today. I'm always a little hesitant to add too much about the cancer on my blog, for fear of it becoming too depressing and no one would want to come by, but Ovarian Cancer Awareness is near and dear to my heart, and reaching other women with the warnings is very important, so thank you again for allowing me to do that today on Blue Monday*!
(((hugs))) _Ashley

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

Hi Sally, sorry I didn't leave you a comment earlier, I'm still playing catch up. I had to get to work this morning and I was running late. Thanks for being such a great hostess. So you're building a new home? That sounds exciting!

Blondie's Journal said...

Happy Blue Monday, Sally. I hope to participate next week.

This must be a happy and sentimental week for you all at once. I'm a little lost on why you are moving and where your current home is. I noticed a few similar comments. Care to share??

I hope your week is as stress free as possible! :-)


Susie Q said...

It has to be such a bittersweet week for you. Moving is trying but you have so much to look forward to! I am so pleased that the sale process has gone as quickly for you as it has!
I think I have told you that we lived in Tampa for 3 years and loved it.
I hope that the buiding process goes well and quickly and that soon you will be settled in your beautiful new home making new memories there!
