Can't Help Feeling Bleu....Bleu-gris, Blue-vert

























Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future...

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea...
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me...
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free...
Oh, Lord, through the revolution
(lyrics by Steve Miller)

Feeling a bit melancholy tonight....can you tell?

The good news is that I will be flying soon...next week,
... in fact I will be flying to the sea!

And while I'm there I will be visiting my parents and in-laws and sweet sister Lynn.
It is just for a week but it will be a nice transition period...
...a time to think about my plan of action...

I'm looking forward to some warm weather... walks on the beach...late night chats with my sister...early morning coffee with my mom and dad...
...Why am I melancholy? Gee, I just cheered myself up!

Too bad Starla and Mr. Flea are staying behind...
...but somebody has to hold down the fort!
:)

Don't you just love blue-gray...blue-green?
The colors of the sea.....

No?

If you could only see one color....which color would it be?

I hope you have a wonderful time with your parents and your sister. I love being with my sister and there is nothing that I would rather do than run around with her and sharing our thoughts.
Have a safe and happy trip.

hugs

Linda said...

Lovely blues! It would be hard to pick one color-I think maybe greens, the colors of plants and nature...so many hues. How nice you can spend some time with your family!

judi said...

Laura,
Your photography is awesome...love the bleu's...love the ornaments in the bowl. The color does make me think of the ocean, my favorite place to be.
Have a great week, a time to celebrate the closing of one chapter of your life and the start of something new and exciting. Enjoy!

A wonderful song to have stuck in my head! (much better than the theme song from CSI) And to pick one color? That's a tough one. Right now I'm "feeling" BLUE with YOU!

I have a pair of pink tinted prescription sun glasses that I love, so I look at the world through "rose colored glasses" :)

Great Question!

Victoria@WhimsybyVictoria said...

Yes...love blue-gray and anything blue! One of my favorite colors. I am in love with those French composition notebooks...where could I ever find some like that? So beautiful! I hope you enjoy your trip and it brings a little yellow sunshine into your day! :) Have fun!

cette ambiance bleu gris est belle mais pas si facile à trouver.

bonne journée

One of my favorite songs!
That color would be the orangy color you see when you sit in the sun and close your eyes. I wish I could say this blue or a tattered powder pink, but I think I couldn't enjoy all of that if I couldn't enjoy the color of the sun.
I want to wish you a great day, but you'll probably have mixed feelings these days, hope the positive feelings prevail.

The French Bear said...

Gee, I never used to like blue and now I love it.... I love the shades of those books and the ribbon....beautiful! After seeing "Alice" I love it even more!!!
Have a great time on your trip!
Hugs,

Lululiz said...

Oh my, thats a really difficult question, just one colour? I do love all the different shades of blue in the sea, but I think it would have to be green, a soft, gentle happy green.

Beautiful photographs, as always. The glass baubles are so precious.

It's me said...

Pink is mine color!!

Enjoy to visit your parents and sisiter !

Have a great time..............and thinking of the good things of live!

Hugs Ria

Marion said...

Floss said...

For me it would be blue, and it would be the sea! I miss the Atlantic so much - frankly, the sea is always accessible in Britain, and when we moved to the US it was with my dad who was in the navy, so, more sea! The only downside of the south of France is that we're over two hours from either sea. I guess it doesn't sound like much to an American, so I should stop complaining! Have a wonderful time by the sea, Laura.

Theresa said...

Love all of the colors and I DO love the color of the sea:) I know you are looking forward to you beach trip. It will be a good transition time for you and I know you will enjoy visiting with family.

Have a blessed day my friend!

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Love those blue-greys, Laura. Going to the sea and visiting with your family sounds like a wonderful remedy.

cheryl kuhn said...

To me, nothing makes me feel calmer and happy than to be the sea. I hope you have a happy trip and come back relaxed yet full of excitement and hope till you decide which road in your life to travel next on!

Jackie said...

Greyfreth said...

Mmmm You sing the blues very well! I'm with you, sister - give me the blues - the faded stormy greys with a wash of blue.... perfection!
Have a great trip - the beach is the magical place that the soul always longs for.

marysworkshop said...

Your lovely photos always are such an inspiration!
There is so much to love about blue, as it's the color we see the most everyday in our earth's beautiful sky and water.
Enjoy your peaceful time at the sea!

Jacqueline said...

Dear Laura,
I LOVE your photographs,all are beautiful. The timepiece, the books in that lovely grey/blue, tied up with that beautiful blue ribbon.
What colour would I choose if I could only see one colour ? That's a hard question to answer. I think, maybe,(and don't hold me to this!!), an antique pinky/greyish/ lavendery colour !!!!
Wishing you a wonderful trip, Laura. XXXX

Bonjade said...

Love it. I collect these old christmas ornaments......love them
Fly with you......

Victoria said...

mary beth said...

My favorite color changes with regularity, but blue always comes out close to or on the top! Love the images you shared with us today..makes me think of summer and the way blues always help me through the hot humid Kansas days...the cooling, soothing pale seaside tones that I love to decorate with that time of year. Right now, I am in love with the pale aqua that is popping up all over design world...it makes me so happy!

Jen Kershner said...

That's my favorite color too! Thanks for all that gorgeous eye candy. I hope you enjoy your getaway. I'm hoping to escape to NC in April.

Ange said...

If I could only see one colour it would be in shades of blue..But I would need a splash of orange now and again ;-) Laura - the sea is invigorating, renewing and invigorating. Have a wonderful time - I personally couldn't imagine anything better than what you have planned. Affectueusement; Ange

Tracey said...

Ahhhhhhhhh I just LOVE coming here!!! You always feature so many things that I too find beautiful!!!

Enjoy your time at the beach...lucky duck!

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

Don't be blue Laura! Sounds like a trip to Florida is exactly what you need!
xxx..Carole
If I was a color I would be orange! lol

Lisa said...

Lovely! I like the blues. I don't think I could pick to see just one color. That would be too sad. I love them all. But when there are sades of the same one that is really lovely!!
Hugs, Lisa

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Hi Laura

Trouvais said...

Hi Laura. With all your creativity I doubt you ever stay blue for long...except that that teal-gray-blue is such a pretty color. Spring is almost here. Have a wonderful time "home". XO Trish
