Blue Monday - Celebrate with Blue!

Happy Fall, y'all! It's Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

I really appreciate it when you take the time to leave a comment for me. Oftentimes, what you say makes my day!

Have fun by visiting other Blue participants. Simply click on their links and wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

Some people like to awaken early in the morning, while others prefer to sleep in. Each morning, at 5:30 a.m., my husband, meets with a group of men at McDonald's. There they discuss sports and solve the problems of the world. Ah yes! You have Johnny and his buddies to thank for the solution-free planet where you reside!

This past week at McDonald's was "People Week." The restaurant celebrated their employees by decorating with Blue. Johnny thought about our love of Blue and took these pictures for me to share. See the Blue streamers and the Blue balloons?

You'll spot more Blue amongst the signs.

Why, even an employee, Jayson, decided to add Blue to his hair. It's good to see his sense of humor, and it did match his Blue shirt! He's also wearing a People Week button that has some Blue on it.

Here's a close-up of the button on Jayson's shirt.

Ah yes, I heard that question: "Where is Sally?" 
I am left at home, tucked under the covers, with a smile on my face!

Are you a night owl or an early bird?

Happy Blue Monday!

Blue Monday - Movie Review: The Words

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

I plan to visit every Blue Monday post. I love to see the many shades of blue you find.

I appreciate the comments left for me. I always look forward to seeing what you have to say.

Try to visit other Blue participants. That's what makes the day fun. Simply click on the links below. Be sure to wish everyone a Happy Blue Monday!


Thursday, my daughter treated me with her gift for my birthday this past May. She took me to the movies. We've been waiting for a film that we'd both enjoy. Notice the Blue sky and the Blue trim on the theater.

CineBistro is an experience of a new way to enjoy dinner and a movie.
The seating is luxury to the max. Look how wide and cushy these soft leather seats are!

They rock back too! Notice the attached trays and cup holders. Look at the wide aisles!

Dinner is served on china by uniformed staff--and it is GOOD too.
Talk about luxury! Boy, was I spoiled.

The film we saw was The Words.
It is a complex story-within-a-story about an unsuccessful young writer, played by Bradley Cooper,
who finds a great manuscript inside an old brief case and decides to submit it as his own work.
Because of that choice, his life is forever changed.

The color of Cooper's shirt is Blue.

Here he speaks with the novel's true author, the Old Man, played by Jeremy Irons.
You'll spot more Blue here.

I liked it; so did my daughter; however, we both agreed that it is not for everyone. If you enjoy reading books and seeing films that make you think, this is for you. Because it's not for everyone, I give it a thumbs undecided!

Happy Blue Monday!

Blue Monday - Doctor's Office Redo

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

It's been reported that Blue Monday Bloggers have the largest collection of blue finds. Join in the fun. Find some blue and share it with us!

It's amazing how much Blue there is in our world.

Wherever I go, I see Blue.

My endocrinologist recently updated her office.
She chose to cover her dark, wood paneled walls with Blue paint.
I thought you'd like to see the result.

Even the water bottle is Blue.

What is your opinion?

Happy Blue Monday!

Blue Monday - Happy Labor Day!

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

There are still people who do not check their links. Last Blue Monday, a blogger tried to link in twice. She wrote to me this past Thursday complaining that neither of her links showed up. Unfortunately, it was way past the time that I could help. I searched but her links were nowhere to be found. I don't know what happened. Please check your link(s) to avoid disappointments.

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

In the United States, we celebrate work with a holiday called,
"Labor Day."

I love this Norman Rockwell painting of a teacher.
In fact, I have a copy hanging in my home.
I taught school, and I loved it!
However, I don't remember my students sitting quite so prim and proper!

Our oldest grandchild, Lauren, is a first grade teacher.
Here she is after a day's labor of cleaning and decorating her classroom
in preparation for this new school year.
Notice, please to labor she's wearing Blue.
In addition, there's plenty of Blue in the classroom.

What labor do you do?

Happy Blue Monday!
