|OOPS wrong Blue Monday - visitors on 4-18 - here's the current post!|
|Not old, my hubby made this - talented and me for a helpmate, the man has it all.|
Joining my first ever Blue Monday with Smiling Sally today!
Dear Helen Hartman,
I’ve heard the expression blue Monday but never really embraced it fully until today when a whole new set of allergies I didn’t know I had got me by the nose. Now I’m calling it Blew Monday.
Love some relief!
Dear Loved One,
Helen never got the Monday blues, either, especially not with two darling children and a hubby who all left the house Monday morning for work and school. Helen liked to call it “Dance Naked and eat Cookie Dough Monday” but somehow that never caught on. As for allergies – Helen does not dispense medical advice (well, not anymore – turns out there are some things love and chocolate won’t help!)
But think on this: The world is full of little flecks of fabulousness (and bargains!) in all colors but in honor of you, blue Monday, a few examples I don’t have to get out of my peignoir (yes, Helen wears a peignoir like Lisa Douglas on Green Acres, pay no attention to the woman in the T-shirt and boxer shorts behind the keyboard) to share.
Enjoy and hope your allergies blow over soon.
|Saw this fellow time and again on a shelf and couldn't imagine why no one snapped him up - maybe because he looks like he needs a mate - poor lonely blue boy! He's mine now.|
|I couldn't resist this Riceland Rice book for the cultural campiness, the photos that included fun kitschy figurines and the, um, amazing recipes.|
Yes, German Salad in my Asian 'Inspired' cookbook, rice added, of course! The real reason I have to show this is that the dishes are the very pattern I grew up eating off of, my mom's cherished Blue Danube, the pattern my family still uses today. Big picture. Small flecks of fab. Life goes on and there are reminders of love everywhere if you only look for them. That's nothing to sneeze at!
