Blue Monday, My Blue Balls and other things

I'm joining in with Smiling Sally for this fun party of "Blue Monday". Please visit her blog and see all the "blues".

Here They Are!

My blue dryer balls. I have to tell you that I am totally impressed! I've been using them for 2-3 weeks in at least 10 loads of laundry. They do everything promised. They fluff, soften and prevent cling in the clothes. The towels are more absorbent. And I will not have to ever buy dryer sheets again!! I have to admit that I first tried to get away with buying some cheap imitators for $3.95. They were hard and lasted exactly 2 loads before splitting in half. I then went and bought the ones advertised on TV. These are softer and bounce like a real ball. They're GREATTTTTTTTT!!

As promised, here is my 1 year old Grand-son for Blue Monday! This was today with his very own blue bucket full of sand! They were visiting at the barn today and both got to ride the "horsey".
(Although Jack was pretty engrossed in the whole arena of sand!!)

These next couple were last week at my house in the yard.

Just a quick note about this or I will tear up! This belonged to one of my most beloved dogs, Bear. He was the kindest and gentlest dogs I've ever had. He's waiting at the "Rainbow Bridge".

Well, this is in the blue family. My lupines are all starting to bloom. Note to self . . . Move these closer to front of garden as some other things are getting much taller than them!!

I'll end with one of God's most beautiful blues. The blue skies of May.
Have a great Monday.


  1. I haven't tried those balls yet. maybe I will have to soon!

    Lots of fun blues with the cutie!!

  2. Your lupines are goregeous. I haven't had any in my garden in years. They didn't seem to last. Maybe it's time to try again. Your grandson is a cutey. Happy blue Monday.
