Five By Five Has Got the Blues

And so does the weather, apparently.  It’s incredibly overcast today, which gave me a bit of a slow start this morning (damn Seasonal Affective Disorder!), but I’m doing fine now.  And it’s a welcome break in the heat, with a forecasted high of only 83°F.  I also got the window air conditioning unit installed in my studio yesterday, so I’ll finally be able to work in there on these hot days!

The Blues is not a bad thing though, especially when you’re talking about music.  This is one of my favorite musical genres (yes, I like music other than hair metal and cheesy 80’s pop) and I was thrilled when, while I was living in Chicago, I got to see B.B. King at the Chicago Blues Festival and Jonny Lang at a concert.  There’s a Blues Festival this weekend near where I live, but we’re already going to be busy with the Balloon Festival.  One of the bands playing at the Blues Festival Saturday is also playing at the Balloon Festival Friday night, so maybe I’ll get a chance to hear them.

For now, I’ll just pop some songs into a playlist and groove while I present these blue items to you.  The Blue Basically Beaded Faceted Bead Necklace from the set of seven is first:

This next one is more of a turquoise blue, but that’s still blue, right?  It’s basically another variation of the Yellow and Silver Large Bead Necklace with Red and Yellow Snail Charm using different colors and bead caps.

This snail is also available as a single charm necklace, just like the yellow and red one.

Blue pairs with gold for this next necklace featuring a five petal blue flower:

Similar to the Blue Marble Gold-Framed Star on Gold Chain Simple Charm Necklace, I also have this pear one:

Snails, flowers, and fruit… sounds like a lovely day in the garden.  But now we’re going to take a giant leap out of the garden for our next blue item…

And these ones are available in blue:

And now, I need to get busy doing my homework, instead of going to play in my newly-air-conditioned studio.  That really gives me the blues.
