Blue Monday - Bluest Day of the Year!

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! Come and play! For instructions, just click here.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links.

Today is the BLUEST DAY OF THE YEAR! No joke! According to my EXTENSIVE research, the formula is:
\frac{[W + (D-d)] \times T^Q}{M \times N_a}

where weather=W, debt=d, time since Christmas=T, time since failing our new year’s resolutions=Q, low motivational levels=M and the feeling of a need to take action=Na.

This date allegedly falls on the third Monday of January.

Since we're here to celebrate all things BLUE, so...

Spend some time with your friends. You might make some new friends by visiting our BLUE participants.

I leave you with a Big Blue smile.

Happy Blue Monday!

Jan said...

Hi Sally, it used to be the 4th Monday of January, and now it is the 3rd... must be some logic there. Lovely blue pics as always.

By the way, I posted from a new team blog "50+ and Loving Life" .... but the + didn't take.... we learn something new every day.

Have a great Blue Monday and a great week.

Mary said...

Sally, you have the dead half of the math world rolling in their graves with that equation :-). You go girl! Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Jeanne said...

Good morning dear Sally, Today I carried over yesterday's post. It is something I really liked so I just left it to share for another day.

Your post today gave me a big smile. That is a very interesting formula. I will let Bill see this because he is a walking math formula. He will get a kick out of this one. Loved your pics and especially your big blue smile.
Hugs. Jeanne

Melynda said...

Hello Sally, it really is a Monday! Could you please fix # 48, it's not bean soup, it is a delicious blueberry breakfast cake. The link works, the title is just leftover linky stuff. Thanks so much and Happy Blue Monday.

Sue said...

Well, It might be the bluest day of the year, but I'm not feeling blue- I'm on my way to changing a lot of things about myself and things around the house and I feel pretty darn good. Now if I could just get going on some of these projects, I'd be feelin' even better! :-)

Dorincard said...

Nice, funny post, Sally! I like the Na! :D :D :D

I do have trouble with the "winter blues" due to the lack of color and light this time of year. I posted some tips about "Help for the winter blues" here last week:

Joy said...

Well these posts will help to make it less Blue or more Blue depending how we look at it

Ann said...

Love this share today Sally. The blue smily face is so cute and cheery. Happy to have all my Blue Monday Friends.

nannykim said...

Well, I have been blue today but it is because I have to trust God and not myself during many random and weird and stressful trials that fell today!

The Tablescaper said...

One can tell when the bluest day of the year is???? Thanks for hosting.

Nezzy said...

I'm smilin' my biggest smile for blue.

I did think of ya when I was in Texas last week for my Dad's memorial service.

My sis brought in these hideous blue dyed daises to tie to the balloon strings to let go durin' the 21 gun salute. She asked me to tie them and my hands were morphed into blue Smurf hands. I was to speak in just a few minutes and I had brilliant blue hands. (Sorry I didn't get a pic...I was in a panic) I ended up usin' bleach and a scrub brush to make me human again. I was thinkin' the whole time..."Sally would love this!!!"

God bless and have a marvelous week sweet gal! :o)

Picket said...

Hey you!!!! How on earth are you? I hope the New year has started off good for you...I know you won't believe this.but I was passing by a yard sale on the side of the road and this 'blue' object caught my eye...yeah I had to turn around and go take a closer was a beautiful glass door top of a small cabinet...I just knew it would be perfect hanging on my wall in the living room...only $10!!! I love it!!! lol Who with blue!!!! lol Love ya Sally...take care...Picket!!
