Blue Monday and Vacation....

I am on vacation this week!!! No I am not at the beach. I sure wish I was! This photo was taken by my daughter last year on her vacation with her father. Oh how nice on this very COLD March morn to be sitting right there! This vacation is from my job, however it will include several projects planned at home. The major one being a kitchen makeover. So it is a 'working' vacation. I have had the same tired old wallpaper chair rail in my kitchen since I purchased this house almost 14 years ago! Now that the kids are finally older, I am finally rearranging the house, painting and updating a bit ...all of course on a budget!

A bit of FUN will be included as I am traveling to the big city in a bit to meet a bunch of Georgia bloggers for lunch! As a 'renewed' blogger, this is such a treat to come face to face with these ladies. Nothing like food, sweet tea and lots of conversation!

A quick Blue Monday photo for today. This is a house in a tiny town just ten miles down the road from me. I was out Saturday to visit an antique store Olive Rue had told me about at coffee Thursday night. This house sets across the street from the line of store fronts. I have a love of blue houses and this old one with it's yellow and blue is adorable. Love the large porch!

One last side note .... you know the saying; If it can happen it will happen. Remember when my washing machine acted up earlier in the week? Well last night I put in three of my sweaters to wash, so I would have something warm to wear at today's luncheon. When I checked back later to hang them...there they sat in water. Ugh! The washer will not spin, will not pump, will not move. I am so not handy when it comes to machinery. Hopefully I can find a repairman to stop by and tell me if it can be fixed or if I will be shopping for a new one. NOT in the budget! But thankfully there is a little rainy day fund. (or was it just a snowy day fund?).


  1. I do like that blue and yellow house; the colors are so soft. I do hope that you enjoy your blogger lunch, and maybe even take some Blue Monday pictures! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

  2. Hi Sherri :)

  8. Sherri,

    The yellow & blue house is gorgeous! I also love a house surrounded by hedges!

    I had the exact same problem with my washer a few weeks ago. It was the little button that goes up and down when you close the lid and it did need to be replaced. I fiddled with it a few times and it did work, by re~setting the cycle and letting the lid fall on that button thingy... I have a Kenmore & I think my charge was $120.00.

    Hope you have fun at the lunch today!!
