Blue Monday - Happy New Year 2014

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

Somebody please tell me how to leave a comment on a google + post.

I hope you had a good Christmas with family and friends. I sure did. We went to a candlelight service Christmas Eve with our family. Johnny and I went over to Allen's, (our son's home) Christmas morning. We live just seven miles apart.

After going out to eat breakfast at the Waffle House--yes, you read that right--the Waffle House, we returned to Allen's house and opened gifts. Allen began this annual Christmas breakfast many years ago. It's a strange beginning but we enjoy it. Both Johnny and I got pecan waffles. Here's their logo and a Blue sky.

Later in the day, our daughter-in-law, Sharon, served a delicious meal. This year, she made lasagna. Here's a shot Allen took. He's wearing Blue, and some others are wearing Navy Blue. I'm at the far end of the table and Johnny is to my right.

Thanks for sharing this special occasion with your family. You have a great family that looks so happy being together. That does not happen to everyone. May the good Lord bless you and family with health and happiness in 2014.

Hi Sally
Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas how special that you all live so close by. You are lucky! I have a mixed bag of Blues for Blue Monday this week but soon is the Aussie Open tennis which is mega blue!!!!
You asked about making a Google + comment? Not sure whether you wanted the response here but my understanding is that you need a Google + account, I offer e-mail on my side bar for those who do not have or want Google + which works well. If I turn off my Google + It removes ALL my comments. As I have fully accepted Google + I can not go back to an either or option... It is a pain.
Anyway wishing you very Happy New Year!

Good morning Sally, We are leaving Fl today to go back home. I have been on a blog break for a few days.

Your family together is always a special time. Love the photo.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful New year in 2014.

We are on our way home and it will be a long 11-12 hours. Home sounds good as we have been gone 10 days.

Love, Jeanne

Hi Sally! I'm so glad you had a wonderful Christmas and you look beautiful sitting there at the end of the table! I love your hair! It's almost 2014, can you believe it? Well, I'm wishing you a Happy New Year and here's to another year of blogging with you, old (as in, we've been blogging a long time) friend! :)
Be a sweetie,
