Blue Monday

It is not a good way to start your week off with a cold, Blue Monday. However, if you will join me for a visit with Smiling Sally, you will be warmed by her new Florida home.

This a scene from our Texas Christmas blizzard. For some reason, the snow looks blue. Perhaps it is because of a shadow.
Just something a little different from the snow. What do you think this is?

The snow does look blue! Beautiful!

Is that last picture firewood?

All the best,

Sunny said...

Lovely blues.
My guess it's a log taken through a screen!
Happy Monday.
Sunny :)

Great blue snow picture, LV.... And that last one looks like some kind of critter or bird sitting on a firelog outside of your window/screen... I can't make out what it is though.

Love your blue snow! ~Kate

In the old days women used to add blue to the final rinse for washing to make the whites more white. Maybe they were on to something.

A piece of firewood with snow on it as seen through a screen door?

Tra La La Boom De Ay said...

Yes, my guess is firewood on a cradle. Are we correct?

Glo said...

The snow looks pretty! Nice blue idea!

The picture looks like fire wood piled up.

Cindy said...

Snow does look blue sometimes in the shadows.
I say a tree trunk.
Hope you are doing well.

SmilingSally said...

It looks like firewood that you may need to burn. Thanks, LaVoice, but my Florida home is COLD today with record-breaking lows!

Becky K. said...

I have come to the conclusion that the sky relects on the snow making it look that lovely shade of blue...

We will remember this winter for a long time, I think.

Have a great week!

hetty said...

Very nice! When I used to paint I loved doing snow scenes because of the blues, pinks and purple shadows.

Terry said...

Howdy LV
Happy Blue Monday to you .
Wow can you believe it we had snow !
I like the blue color of the snow in your photo .
We had to take our firewood and put it in the garage to try and dry it out a bit before using it.
Oh well :)
Have a blessed week my blogging friend.
Happy Trails

Just read the blog -Meditation from the Cardinal Nest - by Ruth !
At January 7 post ,you will see one amazing story about one amazing sister .She`s looking for founds to feed some hungryes childrens .
I just thinking how i can realy help !??
I pray that Joy For All will minister to it's visitors
and will encourage and bless everyone in some way.
We can identify with the disciples. At times, we have
a tendency to focus on the things that are going on around us instead of the One that is in control of all things. When that happens, reality may seem overwhelming, and the problems appear unsolvable. However, we must realize to be fearful
is to lack faith in God and in His provision for us. True faith focuses on God, not on the things that are happening.Psalm 139:11-12
If I say, surely the darkness shall fall on me,
Even the night shall be light about me.
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide
from You, but the night shines as the day,
the darkness and the light are both
a like to You.
in Jesus love >>

I like your great blue snow. I'm not sure about your second picture. It looks like firewood taken through a screen.
