Blue Monday - Sibling Lunch

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!


**The first Monday in September will be the blogiversary of Blue Monday. This September will be the 7th blogiversary! 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With people living so far apart, I don't see my siblings very often. We three recently got together. Therefore, this week was a special treat for me.

My brother and sister and their spouses came to have lunch with us this week. I asked the waitress to take a picture of the occasion. Of the eight pictures taken, this was the only one that turned out. [sigh] Johnny and Alison are in shades of Blue.



Clockwise, you can see me, Johnny peeking around my sister, her husband, my twin, and his wife.We went to Grillsmith. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the time together.

Happy Blue Monday!

Must be great to be part of a twin - I have two 4-year old little nieces who are a twin - so fascinating! They complete each other's sentences, sing to each other to fall asleep:):)

how time flies - let the blues go on - all the best for the coming weeks and years

How awesome you have a twin! My bestfriend and I calls each other "my twin" but we're not really naturally born twins.

I'm so excited to see my siblings later this week. I didn't see them since October last year. We're gathering for my grandfather's funeral though so it won't really be a happy reunion...

Jeannie Marie said...

How nice to have a chance to all be together! There is nothing like a gathering of siblings! I'm a middle child and always wished for a twin!

Always good to catch up with those we love, especially if they live far from us, Sally.

LV said...

So glad you are up to getting out and enjoying time with your family. Trust you feel as good as you look. Take care my friend.

It is the times we live in that everyone is scattered around the universe ~ Great shot of your family get together ~ didn't know you had a twin ~ Loving photo of family gathering ~ which to me is what it is all about 'family' ~ Yet, we are all connected even those we don't know.

Happy Week to you,
artmusedog and carol

I just came back from a two week visit to NYC where I saw my two brothers, so I know how nice it is to get together with siblings and enjoy family times, Sally! Have a happy week!

Best Regards

Oh what a nice lunch. Your so blessed. to be able to spend time with family. I didn't mean to ignore. I just don't have much time in the morning. And I want to get the link up. I'll see if I can fix what wasn't working. Thanks for the party. Have a good week.

Sarah said...

Hi Sally,

I just had lunch with my brother today in London :-) He's very busy with his own company but sometimes we manage to get together when I'm up in the city.

Have a great week!
Sarah

My sibling and I have been trading vintage photos all day long on and off! She is off to the cemetery with her friend Joan. She is going to see if she can find a photo of our great grandfather's grave stone. Love the blues and your siblings too. Hugs, Anne

Dear Sal!
I wrote my blues after work in the late hours of this Blue Monday, and after the blogpost was posted I had to go to say hello to my bed and my pillow...Up early this morning, you know. When I first read your blogpost I was confused, but then I understood that you were with your relatives.
Nice to have some good time with the near ones you dont meet so often.
Happy Tuesday to you!
Best wishes,
AnnA
