Oh so blue

How ironic...It's Blue Monday...and so perfectly matches my mood !

I'm blue because it's the end of summer.

I'm blue because school starts tomorrow for my boys.

I'm blue because I hate the sound of an empty house (even though it's not completely empty- I still have my daughter around... but boys sure make a lot of noise !)

And I'm blue because I'm still traumatized over my son's injuries last week.

I had to take down the post because all it did was make me sad when I saw it.

But for all of those who left a word of comfort and support, I thank you from the bottom of my heart !

And now for Blue Monday hosted by Smiling Sally

(Photos taken on a weekend getaway !)

A fabulous chocolaty recipe and a new giveaway is on the way...stay tuned !

With a weekend getaway like that to remember, who can stay blue? Besides, I've been reading the cheerful comments you've left, and obviously you know how to get smiling! Thanks for sharing your blues. Happy Blue Monday.

We home school so miss out on the departure. Son (16) starts community college (dual credit) Spanish III today in the big city of Austin. He is working on Driver's Ed on-line so by second semester will drive himself...sometimes. Now that is going to be blue ;-/
Hope your son is getting back to health (I missed/or don't remember) what happened. Prayers for recovery for you and him. ;-)

I'm sorry your feeling blue. I know how hard it is with children going back to school. Not sure what happened to your son, but I hope that will also heel.
I have a 20, 18 & 16 year old... it's gets much more challenging... get ready!
Happy or not Blue Monday
Love Claudie

And blue is such a great color, soothing and a reminder of the expansive ocean and unlimited sky..., funny how it's also associated with feeling down.

You've chosen lovely blues to share with us today. A little thought, a lot of prayer and chocolate will chase all your blues away. I hope today is going to be an easy one for you. Hugs and blessings...Mary

School started for me last week; I am still mourning the end of summer myself. It is my absolute favorite no matter how hot. Hope your son is healing and that his injuries were not serious. I would like to invite you to join with me at for Crock Pot Wednesday. It's informal and fun. I think you would enjoy it. Mister Linky is up and waiting for your link.

Seems as though we all have our "blue" days... Thanks for finding me and commenting on my blog post. Lets hope that for both of us, the blue will remain outside in the sky, and not enter our moods... ;)
