Blue Monday - Blue big and small

Hello again everyone. I've been missing all the awesome blues everyone has been posting here on Smiling Sally, hopefully I'm back for good. One thing is for sure, when I created this blog I actually had "early morning peace" time between 6:30 and 7:30 am. Not so much anymore. I go to work at the gym at 6 am and by the time I come home, around 7:30, the kids are up and, well, it's not so peaceful anymore. I'd have to get up at 4:30 am just to experience that great feeling again.

In the mean time I try to find little blocks of time here and there to get back to writing and reading and sharing.

Above are some tiny and big blues I found around the other day when I was testing my new Nikon D90 camara. So exciting, though I need to really learn how to use it. I could not help spotting that little birdhouse someone left in a tree in the front yard. I think it's the only one around and it is frequently visited by woodpeckers, but mostly by the house finch. Next to that is a view of the Guantanamo Bay and a pier just calling my name. However, I'd have to request permission to use it...can't just show up. Beneath that is my little peanut showing off her 4th of July tatto of the American flag, to her left is the bounce house and fun games set up for a day of family fun and finally the itsy, bitsy blue seaglass my peanut found and used on her homemade picture frame. I bet if I try harder I can find all sorts of blues, water not included.

I am on my way to visit many of the people who posted their blues on Smiling Sally. You should do the same... it's a great way to see other parts of the world or other people's ideas.

Until Next Time,
