Blue Monday

Today I woke up to a very chill morning.

I felt like my lips were cold... blue even.
So today is the day that I put on my favorite blue sweater and my blue jeans.
It make me think of my Mom.... she was a flannel shirt and jeans lady ... weather she had blue flannel or not ... she always had blue jeans on... Men's Jeans because women's didn't have her size  ( she was 6ft 1inch)... she would live and breath in her jeans.. clean house, go to friends, play hop scotch... so many flash memories of her in blue jeans and trying to do so many creative things with so little money and three very eager little girls ( my sisters and me ).

Now I don't have a picture of her in her jeans and I wish I did.. I will ask my sister and maybe i will post one if  I can... welcome to my Blue Monday thought

Take a look at Smiling Sallys Blue Monday link.. It's fun!!

Your mom used to call me "beautiful" every time she saw me. And it was easy to believe her. I have fond memories of her--she did my hair for my Junior Prom...and she made the nursery into a magical place for the little ones, and a discreet place for the nursing moms...and her smile is unforgettable. An amazing woman, your mom~ love you-

LOL You worked on this one! Happy Blue Monday.

BTW: I looked at your profile and want to tell you that one of my granddaughters is a lovely 6 ft. tall lady. She's gorgeous, too.
