More Lake Blues

Happy, Happy Blue Monday, one and all! I am apologizing in advance for what will probably be a week where I do few or no visits I am having my second cataract surgery on my left blue eye today! Yay!! Maybe I'll some more gross pictures to share with you later in the week. Meanwhile, be sure to visit Smiling Sally and the other Blue Monday participants and leave a comment when you check out their fun blues!A few weeks ago I had some cool sky photos from a weekend I spent at my sister's lake house. They showed the clouds getting darker and a storm coming in.Here are my nephews and their friend in their blue life jackets under the blue Bimini as we go back to the dock when it started getting too dark. We went back to the house, cleaned up and played cards.

When the thunderstorm stopped, look what was right out our window decorating the beautiful blue sky! It made me realize I hadn't seen a rainbow in years. When was the last time you saw a rainbow?

oh my - eye surgery! I hope that goes well! The pictures from the lake house are great. Love the blue life jackets! We see rainbows lots around here - we get a lot of fast moving storms for some reason and they are often followed by rainbows. It is great!

I love rainbows! Strangely, this winter in Australia I have seen more rainbows than I have seen for years! They are such a beautiful sight! Lovely photos!

I often see rainbows; perhaps it's Florida's clean air. I wish you well with the surgery. I'm glad you're handling it. Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

Great photos! I love the welcome sign, your nephews are handsome and the rainbow is gorgeous!

I need to tell you that every time I open your blog, I smile at the thought of you as an evil overlord. Your photo just doesn't match that title! :)

Best wishes and prayers for a successful surgery and easy recuperation.

Good luck with your eye. If it like my Mother's, you'll be able to see colors much brighter.
Love that rainbow.

Neat post...I loved the jackets and the rainbow. The last time I saw a rainbow, I was heading to the beach. It was a glorious sign!

Best thoughts going your way for your surgery. Rest and recover quickly!

We have had sooooo many rainbows because of the buckets of water that have been falling from the sky!!!
Double ones also. So much rain here in Canada.
Best of surgery Elizabeth, and Happy Blue Monday.

Wonderful post!

Justine said...

We get so many storms down here that it's common to see rainbows. They always take you back to childhood though, don't they?
Good luck on your surgery. My dad just had his eye done yesterday.

Justine :o )

Haven't seen a rainbow in ages. Loved seeing this one. Prayers and good wishes for a quick and complete recovery.

ADORABLE painted sign!

Dorte H said...

That sign is absolutely charming!

I have not seen a good rainbow for a long time, but the area I live in is famous because we have so much water around that we get many double rainbows.
