Today’s Gratitude List + May 2015 Gratitude Linkup

Peter remarked yesterday that I almost always seem to come down with something post-traveling, particularly when using some form of public transit. And it’s true! Though I was (thankfully) spared from picking up any nasty bugs the last couple of times I was on an airplane, I somehow managed to catch a cold after traveling […] The post Today’s Gratitude List + May 2015 Gratitude Linkup appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

On Becoming a Crazy Cat Couple

Once upon an October day last year, two of our good friends packed up their possessions and moved into the house they’d just bought. They thought it would be just the two of them living there; however, they soon discovered that they weren’t the only residents of the place! Unbeknownst to them, around the time […] The post On Becoming a Crazy Cat Couple appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo Friday: Beach

My choice for today’s Photo Friday “Beach” prompt was taken in Victoria, BC when I visited last fall. The fog down at the ocean’s edge was, as they say, as thick as pea soup – so much so that the normally very prominent breakwater was completely hidden from view behind a mass of dense whiteness. […] The post Photo Friday: Beach appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

On getting past the fear of “real” cameras

I have a confession to make. While I am attached to my iPhone and have come to truly adore snapping and editing pictures with it, the idea of using a “real” camera – you know, the kind with all those bells and whistles and lenses and complicated settings and such – intimidates the heck out […] The post On getting past the fear of “real” cameras appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Not a real Tangled Tuesday post, redux

It’s been a fun and eventful week for me – which is fantastic! – but as you might guess, a rather packed schedule means that I don’t have a whole lot to report in the tangling department (at least not enough to justify a proper Tangled Tuesday post of its own). While I did learn […] The post Not a real Tangled Tuesday post, redux appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

#MicroblogMondays 38 – Photo Stream

First thing this morning Peter and I, along with a friend and a busload of other ready-for-fun Windsorites, hopped on a shuttle bus and headed stateside to spend the day at the Toledo Zoo. I had an absolutely wonderful time – but after an early morning, lots of fresh air and sun, and a long […] The post #MicroblogMondays 38 – Photo Stream appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s Gratitude List + May 2015 Gratitude Linkup

The city of Windsor is blessed with a gorgeous stretch of accessible riverfront greenspace, and the fact that Peter and I live just over a block away from this wonderful resource is high up on my gratitude list. This past Friday we spent part of a relaxing evening in my favourite park on the riverfront, […] The post Today’s Gratitude List + May 2015 Gratitude Linkup appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo A Day Challenge – May 1-16, 2015

Can you believe that we’re midway through May?! It feels like only yesterday that I was sharing my month of April photos for the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge, yet already I’ve amassed another couple of weeks’ worth of new ones. Time flies when you’re being creative! ...more

Photo Friday: Reflections

Much as I wish I could share a gorgeous close-up water photo for today’s Photo Friday “Reflections” challenge prompt, I’m afraid such pictures are few and far between in my archives. I’m probably a little too paranoid about dropping my iPhone into the depths and losing it forever, so for the most part I tend […] The post Photo Friday: Reflections appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more
