Blue Monday - Packages of Blue

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


Many people place the Blue Monday button on the top of their post so that visitors can easily spot it. Another Blue Monday button can be placed on the sidebar of your blog. (Directions: Just put your mouse on top of the Blue Jay Blue Monday button. There's one on my post and another on my sidebar. Right click and drag it onto your desktop. If you have a Mac, click and drag onto your desktop, without lifting your finger off the mouse. Now, you have a button on your desktop! You can load it onto your blog.) Some choose to place the link within the Blue Jay button. You can find that code on my sidebar.

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

On a recent drive, Johnny and I spotted a pile of Blue packages stacked up in front of a store. Of course, we pulled the car over and began snap, snapping away! Can you guess what these Blue packages contain?

I'll give you another clue. Here's the store where they're sold. Notice it has plenty of Blue too.

A close-up of the Blue packages reveal that they are bags of salt for swimming pools!

Here's another shot of the store. Notice the ducky on the Blue roof.

I have no need to buy pool salt as I have no pool. How about you?

Happy Blue Monday!

Nope, I don't need any pool salt either, for the same reason as you! :)

Annesphamily said...

Such a clever post! I would like to jump into a cold swimming pool right now! It is so hot here! Have a bluetiful week!

Chubskulit Rose said...

That's a lot of salt!

xinex said...

I wonder how much of that salt I need to keep our pool clean. Cool pictures!....Christine

SwedishCorner ~ DownUnder...Pernilla said...

Wow, that's a lot of salt! No pool here either... Happy Blue Monday, Sally :) Thanks for hosting. Greetings from Australia♥ ~Pernilla

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, a late night but I hate to miss Blue Monday. This week is grandkids week so we are running the roads and busy as usual. This is a very special week and we enjoy it so much. Our children and grands do not live close to us so being with them is a blessing. Three of our children are here as well. Eleven in all. Cooking is a big deal for this gang three times a day for a week.

We used to have pools in our previous homes but we didn't use salt. However, our daughter in Kissimmee uses salt in their pool. It is much better than chlorine.

Happy Blue Monday.

Love, Jeanne

I recognized the bags of salt right away. We use them w/ our water softener. Have a great week, Sally!

Beverly said...

Ah, a familiar salt. I really miss our pool, but not enough to put one in here.

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally.♥

LadyD Piano said...

No pool, no salt but I do like to make my own olives and that takes lots of salt! I love your series of blue photos, especially ducky on top!

CailinMarie said...

I hear salt pools are really good for your skin - but I don't have a pool either. Love last week's post - 266 bird boxes?!? Wow. That is a lot of bird boxes.

We don't have a pool either. If we need a quick plunge in the water during the heat of the summer, we just go to the river by our farm. hehehe... Lots of blue stuff going on. :)

Seems you and Johnny take the right routes to finding neat blues.

We just filled our inground pool in this summer. Too much worry for daughter and me, too, with the grandchildren. Enjoyed your "blues."

Great Blue Pics!Happy Blue Monday!

Maria's Space said...

The kids and I all wish that we had a need for pool salt. My girlfriend just got one and had a bunch of those bags delivered recently. I should have headed over for a salt theme for Blue Monday.
