Happy Blue Monday - Blue for Marc's Birthday

Happy Blue Monday to everyone.  Today I'm joining SmilingSally for Monday BLUES.  Be sure to click on the link to visit the other participants.

On Saturday, June 30th we celebrated Marc's birthday and of course we were at Rockledge cottage.

For his birthday breakfast I made crepes with blueberries and whipped cream along with sausages.  It was a lovely morning and the birds sang Happy Birthday with me.

I commissioned my younger son Richard to make him a lazy susan for the deck table.  Even with the hole it can be used indoors.
fits the table perfect...
Didn't he do a great job?  It is 20" diameter.
Now our condiments are only an arm's turn away.

With a new shirt and lantern for the deck.

In the evening Janet and Ryan, little ones and our friends Mickey and Molly came over for dinner.

I baked a cake with 3 colours of icing of which 2 of them were BLUE...
and also little French Macaroons.  It was the first time I'm made them...see the BLUE ones..
Marc and the little ones blew out the candles on the BLUE cake I had baked.
It was a humid day and my hair shows it for sure.

Mickey and Molly ride their golf cart over and took the kids out for a drive.  Jack helped drive.

Janet and Ryan.....

I know it was a fun day for Birthday Marc....because the rest of us had fun for sure.

Looks like Marc had a great birthday! Love all the food you prepared for him. What a pretty cake and the macaroons are gorgeous! I love the lazy susan your son made for him. He's quite crafty! You look as cute as a button, humidity or not! :)
Be a sweetie,

I'll bet Marc loved his cake, his cookies, AND that super duper idea: the lazy susan--with his name on it, no less! What a neat idea! Thanks for sharing your blues.

Happy Blue Monday, Judi.

Hi Judy, I love your post about Marc's birthday party. The lazy susan is brilliant. A great handmade gift. Happy belated birthday Marc. I loved the photos you shared. You have a wonderful loving family and it made me smile to see all the fun you had that day.

Happy belated Canada Day. We are having a quiet 4th this year. Our choice. We have been sooooo busy that I just want to kick back and relax. The day has started out great. I am enjoying time to visit my blogging friends and Bill just brought me my coffee. Life is good!

Hugs, Jeanne

PS, I have tried to get to your blog a couple of times and your link brought up a popup totally unrelated. I finally clicked on your blog on my list of faves. Weird.
