Monday Blues # 38

Good Morning. It is a cool and rainy morning here in what is usually called "Sunny Socal". I had a wonderful weekend with my family. B and I spent most of it at around town going to the grocery, buying treats such as Chex mix and yummy fruits to enjoy for the week. On Sunday we took an outing to Claremont which is about half an hour from us and discovered a cute little quaint downtown. I had visited Claremont when I was in college but only to play lacrosse so this area is new for both of us. We will be returning here for another outing but for now the work week awaits.
This Monday blues I would like to take a moment and share with you some sad news. My friend Meta whose blog you see on my left hand side under photography, passed away unexpectedly. I had noticed that the lovely moon picture she took a month ago had not changed so I sent her an email to check in. Last week her sister wrote me and told me the news. I met Meta here in the blogosphere but I was deeply saddened with the news because I found her to be such an inspiration. She was someone who followed her dreams and was a very talented artist, jeweler, photographer and kind friend.

Lovely picture! And, Laura, I'm so sorry about your friend. I just visited her blog (for the first time)..., she looked so young. It is somewhat hard to wrap my mind around the fact that we all will leave this earth some day (and go back to where we were before we were born).

I'm sorry to hear about Meta passing so suddenly. I too checked out her blog just now...she had such talent. I know I will enjoy going through all of her photos.

Oh, it is so sad to hear of a fellow bloggers passing and one who had become a friend to you. This is indeed a Blue Monday.

I heard the weather changed in California, so bundle up and stay warm!

this is such a gorgeous photo, unlike the freezing and messy rainy weather we are having today. burr!

and i am so sorry to hear that meta passed away. that is just awful. it is so hard to lose friends and family in real life, and i am betting that losing a blogging friend can hurt just as much.

Hi !.
You may , perhaps very interested to know how one can collect a huge starting capital .
There is no need to invest much at first. You may commense to get income with as small sum of money as 20-100 dollars.

AimTrust is what you thought of all the time
The company incorporates an offshore structure with advanced asset management technologies in production and delivery of pipes for oil and gas.

It is based in Panama with structures around the world.

That`s your chance That`s what you really need!

I feel good, I started to get income with the help of this company,
and I invite you to do the same. If it gets down to select a correct companion who uses your savings in a right way - that`s the AimTrust!.
I take now up to 2G every day, and my first investment was 500 dollars only!

i'm very sorry your friend passed away. blog friends are special, reaching us across the miles. i am compelled to check out Meta's blog, so i will do just that.

this photo is so beautiful, peaceful, yet festive.

i really enjoyed your comment today on my blog. have a lovely trip with your BF- i bet it helps to chase the blues away, or at least will provide a much-needed respite. enjoy.

Sorry to hear the death of your blogger friend. last year I had lost a friend whom I met thru his blog. Although I had never met with him face to face it was a big loss for me..
