Blue Monday - Blue Lunch Bunch

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


My daughter, Debi, who lives in Gainesville, sent me this picture of her son, Zachary, and some of his friends, taken on her front porch one Sunday. Several times a month, Debi invites the college group from church to her house for a lunch of sandwiches. A large, hungry group of 25-35 respond.

This group is wearing Blue shirts. Three of the guys shown here are roommates, who decided to wear same colored shirts; they told Zachary so he would wear his Blue shirt too.The pretty, young lady--a friend of Zachary's sister, Caeli--happened to wear the same beautiful shade of Blue, so Debi had her pose with the guys.

In the right lower corner, you'll spot some Blue plumbago blooms. 


Our grandson, Zachary, is standing to the left, behind those on the swing.

Happy Blue Monday!

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, I just posted my blue for today. We didn't arrive home until 9:00pm last night. Too tired to post.

What a crowd and so terrific of your daughter. College kids love to be fed!!! Zachary is so handsome and I adore this photo. Such awesome young adults. It is a shame that only the bad kids are in the media. The world is full of outstanding young adults like these.
Kudos to Debi and her hubs. You have a terrific family Sally. I am not surprised. Smile.

Love,
Jeanne

Leovi said...

Yes, a very handsome grandson. They look very happy in blue.

LadyD Piano said...

Beautiful blues and lovely youth. You must be so proud! Wonderful photo of everyone.

LV said...

That is a fine looking group all decked out in their blues. Your daughter is doing a great service for the young folks. We need more families like that. Take care.

Kim, USA said...

I love that shade of blue. I also like to invite young people because it seems they are hungry and like to feed them too hehehehe. Thanks for the visit Sally I do appreciate it.

A great looking group in a lovely shade of blue! Thanks for hosting.

Sue McPeak said...

Those blue shirts are one of my favorite colors of blue, and I bet those are favorite young people of yours. I've visited Blue Monday many times through Beverly and Jeanne. This is my first time to post. I've a quilt with lots of blue and a good story to go with it. Thanks for hosting.

Mary said...

They all look great in their pretty blues!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

What a cutie your grandson is and the others, too. And how great of your daughter to feed that crowd of students. SO neat. She takes after her mother, i see. :-)

Love you...

XO,

Sheila (my old blog email no longer works, Sally... long story)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, I can't find your phone number, but I will try and find your email address and email you. If you get an email from an address with my initials in it, you'll know it's me. :-)

XO,

Sheila

Dixie said...

Hi Sally... it's been so long since I've posted on my blog. I couldn't think of a better place to re-enter the blogging world than by visiting Blue Monday.

Love the photo your daughter sent... shows she's always thinking of you and your BLUE!

HUGS. Dixie

Joy said...

Shelia said...

Hi Sally! What a great looking bunch of young uns! :) Your grandson is a handsome young man and how sweet of his mom to invite the young uns over for lunch. Love your pretty header. Now I've got a good excuse for not getting my fall on - we've been on a month long road trip and traveling to upper New York to see my only little grand daughter. But I did get out my boxes today. Hope you're doing well and it's always grand to hear from you.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

I just commented and wasn't signed in so here goes again - I said your daughter is so sweet to invite all of Zachary's friends over after church. My grand-daughter, Stephanie, wants to go to college in Gainsville - in 4 more years. They live about 40 minutes from there.
You have a lovely abundance of blues posted today!

Sarah said...

Sally, your grandson is very handsome. Hope all is well. Thanks for your recent visits........Sarah

AmitAag said...

Hey Sally! Lovely blog and theme hosting!Thank you! Blue being my favorite too I would like to participate in this fabulous meme, but your linking sounds a bit complex. Can I just not paste your website link on my post and add my permalink to your theme on Monday, like it is done with Sky watch Friday, Reflections and Blackandwhiteweekend etc?

Leann said...

All that wonderful love in one shot - gorgeous faces!
