In Honor of Smiling Sally…

I decided to re-post my very first Blue Monday that I participated in back on September 8, 2008 in honor of Smiling Sally and as a tribute to her. Smiling Sally left this earth confident of reaching her eternal home in heaven. We received the news on her Blue Monday post on March 7, 2016. I participated until 2011 but then other things took over my Mondays. The following is my original post.

I’m joining in with Smiling Sally’s new Monday Photo Challenge called Blue Monday. I love the color blue and thought it shouldn’t be difficult coming up with some blue to shoot and post on Mondays. If you want to join in click over here and see the guidelines.

One of the things I like to do besides blogging is to search for treasures at thrift stores. I always complain about the Goodwill’s in Southern California compared to Washington State but I finally found a goody.

This Blue Danube teapot cost me $7.95. Would anyone like a nice cup of Earl Grey?

Choose a cup and I’ll pour…

Sally has moved on to her eternal home and she asked a bloggy friend to continue Blue Monday in her absence. Jeanne at Backyard Neighbor is carrying on the meme. Thank you Jeanne.

Here we are on Monday of Easter Week/Holy Week. I love Easter and am looking forward to all that it involves for us and the traditions we carry on. Most importantly worshiping Jesus Christ and being thankful for his sacrifice that has brought reconciliation with God by the forgiveness of our sins. Grace upon grace. So because of that with joy we bake Russian Easter bread (Kulich, Paska). We make our sweet cheese spread, Seernaya Paska. We set an Easter table and enjoy a meal together after an Easter service. At our house the main protein is lamb. This year there will be ten of us around the table. All adults this year so no Easter eggs hunts. But wait…maybe the adults would enjoy a little hunt!? I’m going to reconsider that.

Do you celebrate Easter?

  1. An excellent tribute post to a special blogger. I love your blue tea pot. Yes, we love to celebrate Easter and we even honor Good Friday as that day when His work was finished. What a Savior!
