Blue Monday

"Happy Blue Monday" everyone~ Thank you Sally for hosting this fun event. You can click on the link or the Blue Monday button on my sidebar to visit other blues today.

One of my favourite confections, although I have several, is brown sugar fudge! Since I can't make my own {I have a hard time beating the candy while it cools; I only have success making chocolate fudge} and my mother can't make it for me any more; I am so happy to have discovered this fudge in the super market. It comes all the way from England and it satisfies my sweet tooth when I get a craving {which is more often than I ought to}. It also comes in a blue bag which is why I'm sharing it with you today.
Take it from me, it's as good as it looks!
Hmmm, what have we here? A little blue velvet box! Wonder what's inside?
Why it's a pair of little sparklies for my ears!
This next item was a birthday present from my son Joel and his wife, Carina. They had gone down to the States to a Michael W. Smith concert at Christmastime and they bought two of these; one for Carina and one for me. When they came home in February, they brought this with them to give to me. I was so surprised and very happy! I would imagine most of you in Christian circles would be familiar with his music. He is one of my favourite singers and I was tickled pink to receive this hoody with Michael's name on the sleeve. It is navy blue with a big heart on the front and Faith, Hope, Love, and Serve on the back.

I am probably the only one on the Island to own one of these! It is unique and a real blessing to have it! Thanks guys!

So, those are my blues for today. I hope you all have a wonderful and bright 'blue' day and please do make your way over to other Blue Monday posts. You never know what you'll see!
