Day 7: Aw....Monday/Blue Monday/Love is.../Maxine Cracks Me Up/My BoJon Heritage/

Yesterday we went to see the movie The Secret Life of Pets with Noelle and Roger and two of the grand boys Devin and Jayden. If you have the opportunity to see this cute movie please do. It made us laugh out loud.
A cast of silly, silly pets.
Max and
Duke the brothers! Hee Hee Hee!
Snowball is a bad, bad, bunny! Look at the wild look in his eyes!
Gidget has a "thing" for Max!
Chloe is....well.....she is a cat! Enough said! Visit Sandee at Aw...Monday. These pets gave me an Aw.....moment!
Happy Blue Monday to Jeanne and all the Blue Crew! This pinterest find highlighted in blue and pink made me smile.  I do 1-2-3-7-8-9-10-13-15-16-17-18-20-21-22-23-24-25! I am trying to be g=get better at eating more healthy things. I love bread and dessert so those two things really have to get cut back. I do some yoga and exercise but I have not been consistent so I can not tell a fib. I am working on it. I thought this would be a good blue list to post today.
This is good advice, plain and simple. I have had so many problems with my allergies this season. I went from Winter to Spring to Summer and nothing has changed. Somedays I get so aggravated. I am going to frame this quote.
I need to go over this list and try to answer these questions. I thought some thoughtful fun was in order for Blue Monday today.
I always keep honey on hand. This Love too sweet not to share.

I am not a meanie like Maxine but these kicky boots are sure cute. You have to admit, Maxine is quite clever.

My dad's folks celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on May 22, 1955. that was an awesome achievement. My goodness they suffered so much and prevailed and kept their marriage strong. My grandmother was not well so much of her life and yet there was Grandpa caring for her as if she were some rare jewel. Their love was something to see and I wo't soon forget it. I don't have many good photos of them and hoping someone comes forward with some to share. One of these days I will sit down and figure out how many grandchildren and great grandchildren they had. My grandfather was a very kind heart and I will always have a very special place in my heart for him. He passed away when I was in the 7th grade but I never forgot the many conversations I had with him. Like my father, he was easy, like Sunday morning.  Those are words to a song and they fit both my grandfather and my dad's personalities to a T. I hope you stop by again very soon. I have fallen behind with commenting but I will be visiting you very soon. Thank you for supporting me here.

All those pets gave me an Awww too. So adorable. I'll bet the movie was great.

You need to tell me what a foam roller is. I've not a clue and I never knew I needed one.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday. Big hug. ♥♥♥

Chloe was my favorite, I took the granddaughters to see it. Your grandpa sounded like a very special, caring guy. What a true example for all the next generations.

We laughed a lot too at Secret Life of Pets. That's so true about the potato and the egg and Maxine is funny. I wish sometimes my parents had lived long enough to celebrate all those years together, but I know they wouldn't come back for anything. A very nice tribute to your grandparents.

Hi Anne, Love your post today and always for that matter. I want to see that movie. I know we would like it a lot. I saw your first list recently and it is a good bit of advice. Like you, I like bread and dessert. HA! The second list I must read more carefully. I too am very allergic to many things. I especially laughed at the boots. Maxine is so funny. Your grandparents are a testament to how important it is to work hard to have a great marriage. Wonderful role models for anyone. A nice share.
Thanks for being faithful to Blue Monday.
Blessings and hugs,
