Blue Monday - Blue Medicine

Welcome to Blue Monday! I'm so glad you decided to join in the fun.

For instructions, click here.

I ❤ to read your comments, so please leave one for me.

I've been fighting a bout of asthma for the past month. Guess what I've stumbled upon? Blue medicine! The package has two shades of Blue.

Look at this lozenge with its pretty shade of soft Blue. Perfect, don't ya think?

Here's a tight shot of the Blue lozenge with my camera flash turned on.

Hi Sally! LOVE where you found your shades of blue this week! And I hope you are doing well; asthma is a challenge, that's for sure.
Best wishes and hopes for feeling better! Cass

Looks like a great refreshing lozenge that will aid in your breathing. the blue flecks must be a nice cool flavor.
Hope you feel better soon.

Nice idea for Blue Monday entry.

Happy Blue Monday Sally.

Great blue with the Halls cough drops.

This is my first Monday joing the blue team.

NatureFootstep said...

the blue color should indicate strong mint I guess. Good for the throat.

Sorry about the asthma - I've been having that same problem all summer. I use Hall's, too, but usually the honey-lemon flavor and the package is yellow, instead of such a lovely shade of blue.

Hope you're breathing easier soon!

Rebecca said...

Sally, you're almost as crazy as me coming across pink stuff-food, toiletries, etc. They just seem to catch your eye-hope you're feeling better soon!

Maria's Space said...

Very refreshing and looks like it would make my nose run really good.

Beverly said...

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally.

Great minds must think alike. I've got blue packaging today, too.

LV said...

Trust you are feeling better today. I am sure since these Halls are in a blue package they will work better. We appreciate you still giving Blue Monday your best even if you are not well.

I have had the same problems - allergies and asthma - hope you feel better.

Hope you feel better soon!

Deborah said...

I am sorry too to hear that you are feeling under the weather though your blue cough drops look wonderfully soothing. Since I have not visited in a while, I also wanted to wish you Belated Congratulations on your 52nd anniversary (and your 35th birthday). You two are an inspiration to us all.

annies home said...

while the color is blue it makes me blue thinking about the day when I will need these

joyh82 said...

Oh goodness, that asthma is nothing to mess with. Hope you feel better soon. Happy Blue Monday!

Heidi said...

Hi Sally,
Hope you are feeling better soon.
I've been using those blue drops for a cough, they help! Guess it's the season to catch bugs, thank goodness for blue medicine! Thanks for hosting Blue Monday.

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

Oh girl, are ya still not feelin' well??? Your on my prayer list right now.

The Halls...aren't they fantastic. When I have a sore throat, like when it feels like it's closin' up. This is the only thing I've found to open up the old vocal cords so I can belt out in song again!

God bless and have yourself a marvelous Monday dear Sally!

Get to feelin' better, ya hear!

Sally I do hope you are feeling better, too! Hope these little blues bring some comfort to you!

Happy Blue Monday!

Hope I am not yet late.. Visit me and see my post .ty.

Sarah said...

Sally, hope these bring you some relief. Great for Blue Monday! ~ Sarah

Jeanne said...

Hello Sally, I am sorry you are not feeling well. I prefer lemon honey if I need a cough drop. Being a blue cough drop is certainly right up your alley. HA! We need a laugh when we don't feel well.

If you saw me this morning you would surly laugh. I was working in the lily garden and looked a sight. Hat, grungy clothes and not a drop of lipstick. Well, there was color, white sun screen. I'm glad I don't live in a regular neighborhood. I was outside four hours this morning. Cheri sat on the lower deck watching my every move. She is such a good little puppy.

About the nails, Marilyn did not do these, but she is capable of true art on nails. These were from Google. I will add that too my post.

Feel better Sally.
Hugs, Jeanne

sorry to hear that asthma is bothering you! IT is not fun stuff-
Happy Blue Monday!

Wifey10 said...

Oh I love halls, but it's quite addicting as well.hehe..Blessed week!

Self Sagacity said...

You always find such wonderful blues Sally. I think I might be color blind or going mind blank - like men. I see these things that you've posted in blue, but never made the connection like you do. You have slowly taught me to open my eyes while absorbing with my mind. Clarification here: I am slow, your teaching isn't slow. Smiles.

Dhemz said...

halls is my refreshing!

Shey said...

Love this lozenge too. The color itself is very soothing.

Hope you're feeling better. :)

Windchime said...

Very creative! Hope you feel better, hugs! ♥

Janet Marie said...

I'll bet they are refreshing.

I hope your Monday was good and your asthma not too bad...or none existent all together.

Barbara Jean said...

Hi Sally. Thanks for visiting.
Did not buy the crib, and would have only used it for display, not for any children.
Thanks for the warning about the slats though.

Gypsy Lala said...

Hope you are better now. I have suffered asthma for about 15 years in my childhoodtime, now I totally get rid of it for more than 20 years already. You do take care and keep yourself warm...I like your blue posts.

April said...

Hi Sally!
Chris has developed asthma just recently, so I have a pretty good idea of how rough it's been for you. Hope things turn around soon!

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, thinking of you this morning. I really do miss your visits and awesome comments. Short, to the point and often with humor. Your quick wit is the perfect blogger recipe.

Love ya, Jeanne

Judi said...

Hi Sally
I hope your asthma improves - disappears.
Thats a very pretty shade or 2 of blue and I hope its relieving your problem.

Have a great rest of the day and a late Happy Blue Monday...
enjoy the weekend.

Anne Fannie said...

Hello Miss Sally,
I have been so busy lately that I completely forgot about Blue Monday this week!
Leave it to you to find blue medicine! LOL
Hope you get to feeling better. This time of the year seems to bother my husband's nose too!
Have a safe and fun weekend!
Hugs, Ann

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Happy Labor Day, Sally!

I'm racing around trying to see a few people to ask for prayers for Mr. Magpie. He has surgery tomorrow, and we leave in a few to go stay in the hotel by Mayo. I just posted details on my blog.

Thank you for any prayers you send our way.

Love you...


Sheila :-)
