Blue Monday - The Day I Turned GREEN!

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please check your link to make certain it's working correctly. Sometimes computers "help" us by filling in what they "think" we want to type, and sometimes that information is incorrect.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Several weeks ago, the beautiful Blue background wallpaper that I've had on this blog for several years just disappeared (out of the Blue!) and in its place appeared gray circles enclosing negative signs. Although it was super ugly and bothered me, I didn't take the time to try to fix it. (Truly, I did not know how, and I thought hoped that it was only looking like this on MY computer!) After all, no one mentioned it.


Finally, Jenny from TwoTumbleweeds brought it to my attention this past week when she commented:
What about a soft, blue background without a pattern for your blog background that doesn't distract from your photos. Instead of your nice photos all I see are the circles with minus signs which is also negative. Sorry this isn't a happy comment.
Then I realized that not just me, but EVERYONE COULD SEE THE SILLY CIRCLES!

Friends, I've never claimed to be bright, but it's times like these that cause me to realize how dense I am!

(I only wish that I was this pretty and blonde.)

I clicked some clicks and clicked some more. I'm not sure just what I did, but I ended up with a totally GREEN blog--about this color GREEN. Ugh! That's the worst thing that could happen to a lover of Blue. To make matters worse, I LOST all my stuff! I frantically began calling for help. I called several people--all were sympathetic, but no one could help. I even sent emails. One blogger sent me a link, but when I tried it, I was blocked.

Jeanne from Backyard Neighbor was one blogger I called. She got on her computer and witnessed my ugly GREEN blog. (Just ask her; she'll tell you that it was "not Sally.") Meanwhile, I continued click, click, clicking--trying to change things back.



BJ from SweetNothings came to my rescue. She spent a good bit of time on the phone helping. In fact, when we finished, she looked something like this.


I really appreciate everyone's help. Meanwhile, I've cleaned up my blog a bit and changed a few things.

I leave you with a question. What about all the awards that line my sidebar? They take up so much room that it's hard to see my bookshelf way down at the bottom. Should I move them to a separate page? Should I delete them? What do you suggest?


Happy Blue Monday!
