Tangled Tuesday No. 30 + 100 Happy Days – Day 74

This is totally NOT tangling-related, but… today’s happiness is brought to you by my first ever perfect score on the Wii Fit Advanced Step workout! And before this screen came up to confirm my score I was rewarded with a “Perfect Moves” banner that flashed across the screen, which totally made my day. Such a […] The post Tangled Tuesday No ....more

#MicroblogMondays 13 – Back on track + 100 Happy Days – Day 73

Today’s happiness is brought to you by my delicious and colourful broccoli slaw salad loaded with fresh veggies and a few green grapes, topped with roasted pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries, and drizzled with a tangy raspberry vinaigrette dressing. After several days of not-so-healthy eating, it felt great to get back on track today with […] The post #MicroblogMondays 13 – Back on track + 100 Happy Days – Day 73 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 56 + 100 Happy Days – Day 72

Today’s happiness is brought to you by a relaxing Sunday of staying inside our cozy house with my little family on a grey day, ignoring all the work that needs to be done, and starting a new 8″ x 10″ ZIA. There’ll be plenty of time tomorrow for house cleaning, laundry, and groceries. Today is […] The post Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 71

Home again, home again, jiggety-jig! Yes, that’s right – just two nights in the hospital for Peter before they sent him packing, which has got to be some kind of a record! He’s doing just fine – still building up his strength post-surgery, of course, but in great spirits and walking really well (albeit slowly) ....more

Photo Friday: Metal + 100 Happy Days – Day 70

Two summers ago I experienced Chicago for the very first time, and immediately fell in love with the city. It’s an amazing place! My visit was fairly short, but I still managed to fit in several of the essentials (Chicago-style pizza, anyone?!), including a visit to Millennium Park to see Cloud Gate – or, as […] The post Photo Friday: Metal + 100 Happy Days – Day 70 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 69

Immediately after Peter’s surgeon informed me that this morning’s operation was complete and had gone well, I headed downstairs to the hospital cafeteria to make some calls to various family members so that I could pass on the good news. I sat at a table facing the window, and when I looked up and saw […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 69 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 68

This has been a rather stressful day for me, as we’ve been wrapping up the final preparations for Peter’s upcoming hip replacement surgery and the recovery time to follow. I’ve been pretty calm and together about it up until now, and have managed to keep myself distracted with other things, but it all suddenly hit […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 68 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 29 + 100 Happy Days – Day 67

Today’s happiness is brought to you by the annual (and very exciting!) appearance of my own personal “Yes, the holidays are coming!” sign – opening my mailbox and finding that this year’s Lee Valley Christmas Gift Catalog had been delivered! I was actually half tempted to leave the mail in the box today (it’s COLD […] The post Tangled Tuesday No. 29 + 100 Happy Days – Day 67 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

#MicroblogMondays 12 – Motivated + 100 Happy Days – Day 66

Today’s happiness is brought to you by the results of this morning’s weekly weigh-in, which gave me the opportunity to move another handful of pebbles from my Going… Going jar to the (MUCH more satisfying) Gone! one. For anyone keeping track, that brings me a total to 40.5 pounds lost since my highest recorded weight ....more

Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 55 + 100 Happy Days – Day 65

Today’s happiness is brought to you by an odd little (well, not REALLY so little) something that’s actually on my gratitude list as well: my home office scanner. Weird, right? But hang on – I can explain… Yesterday I started working on a holiday-themed tangle design, and was enjoying myself so much that I couldn’t […] The post Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No ....more
