Wildcard Wednesday No. 7

I am so excited – I actually get to go out and do something fun tonight! OK, so that might not sound too exciting to you, but considering that I only left the house TWICE over the past month, it’s rather thrilling for me. Here’s hoping I don’t cough too much! ...more

Tangled Tuesday No. 42

Remember when I wrote the other day that I was having a hard time putting down my new Kindle Paperwhite? Well, there are only so many hours in the day, and unfortunately this week my obsession with reading took over the great majority of my spare time… not necessarily a bad thing, but it did […] The post Tangled Tuesday No. 42 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

#MicroblogMondays 27 – Linkup Etiquette 101

As you may know, I host a regular gratitude linkup on Alphabet Salad. I also hosted a 2015 Word of the Year Linkup back in January (which was a whole lot of fun!), and have participated many times in linkups hosted by other bloggers. For the most part, my linkup experience (both as host and […] The post #MicroblogMondays 27 – Linkup Etiquette 101 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s Gratitude List + March 2015 Gratitude Linkup

Welcome to a fresh new month of gratitude! Yes, March is here, and with it (in just a few short weeks) the official start of Spring. Although it’s currently cold and snowy where I am (and quite possibly for many of you as well), here’s hoping Mother Nature gets the memo and starts sending some […] The post Today’s Gratitude List + March 2015 Gratitude Linkup appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo A Day Challenge – February 15-28, 2015

Well, that’s February over – another month of blogging, photos, and winter, done and dusted. I can’t say I’m sorry to see the end of this one, as it’s been at various times challenging, unpleasant, and COLD. Here’s hoping that March brings better things… it’s when Spring officially begins, after all! ...more

Photo Friday: Leaves

I didn’t have to go too far to find my pick for today’s Photo Friday challenge prompt of “Leaves” – it was waiting for me right at my own front door! See, the outside walls of our home are slowly being covered with a blanket of ivy, and although this picture was taken awhile back […] The post Photo Friday: Leaves appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Throwback Thursday: The Mixing Bowl

If you were to sneak a peek into our kitchen cupboards you would find – amongst the utilitarian nesting stainless mixing bowls, the variously-sized modern black stoneware stove-to-table bowls, and the ornate glass serving bowls – a well-used, scratched and worn, slightly-yellowed white plastic bowl from days gone by. This plastic bowl was manufactured at […] The post Throwback Thursday: The Mixing Bowl appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Wildcard Wednesday No. 6

The sun has been shining brightly all day, it’s only -8°C out there (hey, the below-zero temperature is finally in the single digits – I’ll take it!), and the official first day of Spring is less than a month away. Life is good! In the meantime, though (while we’re waiting for the snow to melt), […] The post Wildcard Wednesday No ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 41

Happy Tangled Tuesday! I started writing this post with the overall impression that it had been a rather quiet week in my world of tangling, but as I looked back I discovered that I actually got quite a bit accomplished (particularly considering that I’ve been feeling under the weather lately). Read on to find out […] The post Tangled Tuesday No ....more

#MicroblogMondays 26 – Happy Two Years!

I can scarcely believe it, but it’s now been two years to the day since we happily added Felix, Oscar, and Grisabella to our little family. Yes, two years already! Time certainly does fly – or, more accurately (at least in our case), race around the house in a furry frenzy ....more
