Blue Monday/Love is.../A Belated Happy 4th of July!/Hannah's 23

Hi and welcome to my late Blue Monday post! Too much fhun, phamily and friends this weekend! A long weekend too! Whew! We had a blast. It is always wonderful to spend time with those you love. So here are some shares from our weekend. Hope you spot the blue here!
Hannah turned 23 on Thursday July 3rd. This was her cake! Our local Albertson's Bakery did a fantastic job. Plus it cost about fifteen dollars less than the other bakeries near our home. It was a marble cake with butter cream frosting and chocolate fudge filling! This is from a song by Blink 182. The lyrics are a little obnoxious so I won't share them here! But the sentiment is funny. I must confess we do like her even though she is 23! We had a quiet phamily barbeque. It was a nice evening.
Sleepy kitties. Notice any blue? These two dislike the heat and they
sleep whenever they can! Mr. Kitty on the left and Rose on the right.

Here is the sky at dusk. I wish the pink in the clouds was as vibrant as when I shot this photo. It really was lovely. The blue sky is settling into night time too, just like those kitties.
Hannah (bikini) and Nick (black shirt) hung out with friends at the Cherry Creek Reservoir on her birthday. It was very hot! Skip over to Sally's and say hi to all the nice blues you will find!
Me and music. Music and my honey. I adored the Bee Gees and love their music dearly. They were three unique individuals and I appreciate all the range of music they wrote and performed all through the years. I can not play a musical note but I sure love the piano.
This is an oldie. Nick and I in 2012 before he left for college. My goodness, two years have passed us by. But we try to fly our flag most days and especially for the holidays. I had Old Glory hung in the breeze all week last week.
Although we enjoyed the fireworks displays around us safely from our home we did see this display in 2009 at Estes Park. It was a freezing cold Fourth of July. This was beautiful though. Hope you celebrated safely. We can see fireworks from Northglenn, where we live, Thornton to the East of us and even some of the fireworks they shoot at the stadium after a Colorado Rockies game, But my neighbors up the street had fireworks that were spectacular. I was a tad disappointed in our city's display.   We pay a premium for our use of the city water and I think they should use that money wisely. A little extra fireworks would have been nice. Lord knows they did not use any of it on street repairs!

I hope your week will be wonderful and you will find many memories to share with us here. Have fun!

Happy Birthday to your Hannah. One of my daughters also had a birthday this past week. She says she's "29" but my math comes up with a different figure. haha. Pogo and I watched the fireworks on TV. It was more comfortable for us this way. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
