Always such a pleasure to join in the fun here. Visit Aw....Mondays
Our oldest son has a fascination with goats. I recently read an article saying that Nigerian Dwarf Goats are great pets. They are certainly very cute (the photo is not a photo of them). But they are very high maintenance goats. Unless you have all in the time in the world they are probably not the pet you dreamed about.  A fun fact I also read about goats in general are the mama goat will remember her baby.  I just thought this google images was very sweet. I found a blogger Why you don't want Nigerian dwarf Goats and this is the post she had. Those Nigerian Dwarf Goats are smart and sassy and the male, well, he is stinky, super stinky!
Love always right on target. These are some of the cutest ones I have seen.
This chandelier hangs in the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island Michigan. I have had Sally DeStefano on my mind all week along. I have her on mind most days but this past week, I really kept thinking of her and how much I Miss her hosting Blue Monday. She was a remarkable person and she visited every single person who participated. I admired Sally for her faith and the love of her phamily. So I found a few blues that made me smile in memory of Sally. I miss her today and always.
I thought this peaceful photo was perfect to remember a dear sweet lady. I will never forget Sally and hope to see her again on the other side.
I sure love this inviting blue door. I wish I could step inside and see Sally again.
I love doors so this blue door with the doily like covering made me happy. I think Sally would have enjoyed all the blues today.
McGuffy's Although Annie has been on hiatus I thought of her too and wanted to share these words:

"If someone were to pay you ten cents for every kind word you said and collect five cents for every unkind word you said, would you be rich or poor?" Author unknown, quoted by Jacob M. Braude

That is a very good question we should all ask ourselves.

I love that second blue door. It's so homey looking. As for the words, I hope I would be rich. Enjoy your day, hugs, Edna B.

Awww on the goats. They are indeed so cute and lovable too.

I love the blue doors and there was a time I wanted a chandelier. Not anymore, but I did back in the day.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Anne. Big hugs. ♥

What a sweet tribute to Sally! Someone who still lives on in our hearts!
Jeremy should check out Jackson Lake Island (on FB). It's one of our favorite places to picnic and/or take out-of-town guests ... largely on account of their adorable goat population. My son's always afraid his wife is going to 'kid'nap one or more. :)

I love your beautiful blues today, and I WANT that door! I think those dwarf goats are so cute! I love how goats have rectangular pupils! It helps them see better.

That quote about our words is very thought provoking. I need to write that one down. That blue door was very pretty. Loved your tribute to your friend.
Blessings, Jan

Goats are cute animals. I know nothing about them really other than someone said they are great creatures for getting rid of kudzu. We have some of that wicked stuff on our back property. I need to find a service that can remove it successfully. Absolutely love is what gets you through hard times. I love those the little Kim cartoons! They are sweet and often so true. :) I might have participated in Blue Mondays years ago but I certainly have seen others playing along. I'm sorry to read that Miss Sally isn't with us anymore. That's sad but how sweet to remember here by sharing some blue photos. The ocean blues is a beautiful and peaceful picture. I love how the light hits the water on the sand. :) I do know McGuffy Annie. I miss her presences in Blogosphere. I hope she's ok. Your Sparks quote is good. I'm not around people so I don't know if I'd be poor or rich. lol I'd like to think I'd be rich, though. :) Thanks for visiting on Monday. I'm sorry for being like a snail in my return visit, dearie. Have a boogietastic week!!
