100 Happy Days – Day 6

Well, I can’t say that today’s been a particularly happy day… more like an incredibly frustrating one! Why, you ask? Well, mostly because all of my time in between work and the other things I needed to do was spent attempting over and over (and over yet again) to return my beloved iPad to its […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 6 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo A Day Challenge – September 1-17, 2014 + 100 Happy Days – Day 5

Today’s happiness is brought to you by a fragrant batch of fresh strawberries that Peter picked up while grocery shopping this afternoon. I’m looking forward to enjoying a bowl tonight and then some more tomorrow in my breakfast yogurt – so the happiness will linger! Now, on to the first half(ish) of my September Photo […] The post Photo A Day Challenge – September 1-17, 2014 + 100 Happy Days – Day 5 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 20 + 100 Happy Days – Day 4

Yes, it’s Tangled Tuesday… and it’s also another happy day! There were several things I could have used for today’s 100 Happy Days photo – the bright blue sky (which made a much-appreciated appearance after several days of greyness)… the long-term forecast on my weather app (which promised a return to summery conditions by the […] The post Tangled Tuesday No. 20 + 100 Happy Days – Day 4 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s happiness is brought to you by the number THREE (which, coincidentally, happens to be my favourite number)… as in, today marks Week THREE of the fun “Write in your own space” MicroblogMondays, my personal Day THREE of participating in the delightful 100 Happy Days challenge, and THREE more pebbles removed from my “Going… Going…” […] The post #MicroblogMondays 3 – THREE! + 100 Happy Days – Day 3 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 46 + 100 Happy Days – Day 2

Yes, I realize that it’s a rather complicated post title – but today (and each week until I finish the 100 Happy Days challenge), gratitude and happiness are walking hand in hand! Today’s happiness is brought to you by the swirls and curls and sweet-smelling, spicy goodness of Nag Champa incense smoke, lazily undulating in […] The post Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 46 + 100 Happy Days – Day 2 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 1

Over the past several months I’ve noticed a number of friends participating in a challenge called 100 Happy Days, where every day for 100 days they submit a picture of what made them happy that day. Fabulous idea, don’t you think? This sort of thing is right up my alley, and I’ve always thought about […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 1 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo Friday: Panorama

My heart sank a little when I saw today’s Photo Friday prompt – Panorama – because I was pretty sure that I’d have nothing suitable to share with you! See, I would describe my method of photography as iPhoneography, which means that my shots generally tend to be Instagram-focused and taken from a 1:1, perfect […] The post Photo Friday: Panorama appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

It’s September – welcome autumn!

Whether we add them to our calendar, make intentional plans and preparations, or keep them tucked away as subconscious thoughts, we all have our own traditions and rituals which we observe to recognize and celebrate the changing of seasons. It might be planning a garden and ordering seeds… buying your first Pumpkin Spice Latte of […] The post It’s September – welcome autumn! appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more
