Blue Monday - Florida Sunrise

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

After you've linked in, it's a good idea to check your link. For the past two weeks, there is one person whose link has been defective. That link is entered in as ME! So everyone who clicks on it, returns to Smiling Sally. The person does not leave me a comment--can you imagine THAT--so I cannot notify her/him of the error. {sigh}

Click on other's links and wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One morning this past week, Johnny happened to catch this gorgeous Florida sunrise. I'm sharing it today for my Blue Monday. (Although they look like mountains, the black silhouettes are actually houses in our neighborhood.)




Did you watch the Super Bowl? We did. We were invited to a Super Bowl party. Both teams use Blue for their color.




I am one lady who actually watches the game, but I also love to watch the commercials! What do you watch?

Happy Blue Monday!

I'm ba-aaak! Happy Blue Monday. Beautiful sunrise. (Sorry, we don't have a TV so no Super Bowl. Pretty blue, though.) God bless.

Barbara F. said...

Eli Manning is my hero! I always watch when it involves a NY team, but otherwise I enjoy the commercials and half-time show! xo

Barbara F. said...

I've missed Blue Monday for too long, so I linked up two! I love the sunrise, and yes, I thought it was mountains at first. xo

Cafe au lait said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally!

My Blue Monday.

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, Yes, we watched the Super Bowl game. We were rooting for the Giants so we were happy. The Commercials were interesting. I think the M&M one was pretty cute as well as the Polar bears for Coke Cola. I also liked the half time show for a change. It was nice to understand the words Madonna was singing. She looks fabulous at fifty.

The sunrise is stunning. The houses do put one in mind of the mountains.

I hope you are feeling well Sally.
Love, Jeanne

Loui♥ said...

Beautiful sunrise! Just found you, and thank you for hosting. Carol Ann

Jan said...

Suppose the Super Bowl is available on Australian TV, but I only saw a couple of seconds in the evening news. Apparently Madonna's segment was a hit.

Iteresting sky photo, though it does look cool.

jane said...

Hello Sally - this is my first visit to Blue Monday - I love your sunrise picture and I have watched a clip of the entertainment at half time on the news - I expect there will be more on later - Jane UK

wifetoalineman02 said...

Eden said...

Very nice capture of the sunrise.

Happy Blue Monday.

Beverly said...

I give Johnny's photo a double thumb's up. A gorgeous sunrise is like a special gift to begin the day.

We did watch the Super Bowl, and we were cheering with the Giants' win.

Happy Blue Monday, Sally.

Lesa said...

Gorgeous sunrise! I don't keep up with sports but I did see a bit of the half time show.

I'm linked twice-- the first had an error and I didn't see how to delete it. sorry! Can you delete my first one? It is number 46 DeLynne @ Baja's Cozy Book Nook (Princess Grace)-- that is the wrong book-- It is PINK!

:)

FABBY'S LIVING said...

I love that beautiful sunrise! Yeah, great Superbowl, hubby loves it! Have a happy week sweet Sally. Thanks for hosting and having me.

Jake said...

barbarah said...

That is a gorgeous sunrise. No, we didn't watch the Super Bowl but I saw a few of the commercials online.

Annesphamily said...

Love Johnny's photo! Stunning! Happy Blue Monday! We were rooting for the Giants although we are Bronco fans! Glad to see the Pats put in their place. After the beating they gave Denver I chose to root for lil Manning! I think he will become a great QB and no longer stand in his older brothers shadow! Hugs Anne

Shelia said...

Hi Sally! Lovely snap and glad you had fun at the SB parties! Thanks for hosting.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

LV said...

Your over the housetop sunrise shot is great. I am happy the Giants took the blue away from the Pats. I watched this one all the way through. Thought it was one of the best I had seen. I loved that a play, where the fellow just stopped and sat down for the touchdown.

LadyD said...

Our team won but we are still Chargers fans. Loved M&Ms and Coca Cola bears. The prohibition commercials were done w/ style, lots of funny ones, too. So many people watching but it's nothing compared to a lovely sunrise!

Leovi said...

Beautiful, I love the light, the blue sky is delicious shades.
