Blue Monday - Spring Break!

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

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

Two of my seven (yes, seven!) grandchildren came to visit Johnny and me this past week during their Spring Break. They went to the beach and bought these T-shirts.

Zachary's T-shirt is blue, and Ara's is purple, a cousin of blue, with some of her lettering in blue!

They're a bit difficult to read. They say, " Spring Break, 2011, Clearwater Beach."

Zachary, 18, attends University of Florida and Ara, 16, attends Santa Fe Community College.

Remember when this time was called "Easter vacation"?

Happy Blue Monday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day this Thursday!

Beautiful blue. Beautiful grandchildren!

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I sure do miss visiting you more often. However, I am very glad you continue your Blue Monday meme.

Your grands are both handsome and very pretty. How fun to have your grands visit on Spring Break! I know they had fun too. their shirts are splendid and it was sweet of them to let you take their photos and blog about them. Some kids these days would object. It is so terrific that they are getting an education. It is so important for their future.

Happy Blue Monday my friend.
Hugs, Jeanne xoxo

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Hi Sally,

They are so cute! I hope that you all enjoy your spring break together, and yes, I do remember when it was called Easter Vacation.

Have a wonderful week, Sally.

Best and God bless,

Dena E's Blog said...

Hey Sweetie,, just tried posting about my gift.. Its hard to express my thanks in the post just the way I'd like to. Hopefully you'll be able to tell a bit of how exciting it was for me to recieve my book Sis...
And oh, about the Spring Break... Wow, do I remember this time of the school year as being called Easter Vacation in California as a child..
In fact when my Pete and Jenny were growing up here it was still Easter break.. Its all very sad in my opinion...That it had to change..You have a blessed week Sweetie and THANKS for your Sistership... May you know Christ's blessings through your new week...
Hugs and Prayers~~~Dena

betty-NZ said...

Here are my blues for this week.

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I came by to say hello and to see if you posted about St. Patrick's Day. I do miss your visits Sally. I miss visiting your posts as well. You became a pleasant part of my day and I have a hard time getting out of the habit of visiting back and forth. Anyway, I understand why you have slowed down because it takes hours of our time to blog. I don't have time to even read that I love so much. However, I do love blogging and will keep going with journaling things I love to write about.

Have a wonderful day my dear blogging friend.
Love, Jeanne

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Those are some mighty cute grands, Sally! So glad they got in a good visit with you. What fun! :-)

And speaking of fun, I'm wishing you a very Happy St. Patrick's Day. Have missed you much.


Sheila :-)

Life Moto said...

Anonymous said...

Yup, it used to be called 'Easter Vacation', just like 'the holidays' used to be called 'Christmas'. I say, call it what it is!

Bethe77 said...

I have popped over from LV's blog. She mention there was a birthday girl in cyber space. So I have hopped on over to wish you a very Blessed Birthday. It appears to be off to a grand start with the grandchildren visiting.
I have never done blue Monday. I must find some blue.

Barbara said...
