Out of the Blue Thoughts


Thinking about color, being that it’s the time of year leaves turn vibrant colors.   (I’m still waiting, but the palm trees around here aren’t changing.)  


So why do we have favorite colors? Must be a brain thing releasing happy chemicals. Or maybe it stems from the childhood question, what’s your favorite color, to which I quickly answered. Purple! 

All I know is that for the last two years, I’ve been on a blue kick.    My blue Christmas décor, random blue purchases (candles, a dutch oven, & tanzanite to name a few), and now trying to sway my husband into a blue tile roof. Oh, and my absolute favorite snack, blueberries. Why does food come naturally in every color except blue?  Blue cheese is kinda blue, but are there any more?

My love for blue just seems instinctive.  Thinking about reading the blue books at the library as well.  That’s after I set up my blue website, when will I ever find the time to write?
