Photo A Day Challenge – December 1-17, 2014 + 100 Happy Days – Day 96

You know, I’m beginning to think that the mail carriers and couriers in this city are becoming my new best friends… because it seems as though every time there’s a knock on the door it’s one of them with a delivery that makes my day! ‘Tis the season, I suppose. Today I actually received two […] The post Photo A Day Challenge – December 1-17, 2014 + 100 Happy Days – Day 96 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 33 + 100 Happy Days – Day 95

Today’s happiness is brought to you by friendship in the form of a surprise tangling-related gift that showed up at my door today – “A Year of Tangling” in calendar form! – sent by a couple of dear people I just happen to know and love. What a thoughtful and sweet present! ...more

#MicroblogMondays 16 – Word of the Year? + 100 Happy Days – Day 94

Last January I followed along with a crowd of people who had decided to claim their very own inspirational word for the year – something meaningful and motivating that would provide intentional focus and direction as they made their way through each day. (You can read more about my word choice for 2014 here, if […] The post #MicroblogMondays 16 – Word of the Year? + 100 Happy Days – Day 94 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 59 (and something NEW!) + 100 Happy Days – Day 93

Funny boy Felix has a brand new way of showing affection (or perhaps, more accurately, communicating a “get up and feed me already” message!) – that is, climbing on my chest just as I’m waking up in the morning and licking my chin (and occasionally giving it a gentle play-bite, just to emphasize the point).

100 Happy Days – Day 92

Wow, am I ever glad the day is done and I am back home! I spent the afternoon braving the slow-walking, middle-of-the-aisle-stopping, children-whining insanity that is Christmas shopping at the mall, and I am beat. But happy, too… because I stopped to check my post office box on the way home and was delighted to […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 92 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo Friday: Blue + 100 Happy Days – Day 91

My choice for today’s Photo Friday “Blue” challenge was actually taken fairly recently – just about a month and a half ago, in fact – in response to a “Something Blue” prompt for the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge. So I apologize to those of you who may have already seen it, but […] The post Photo Friday: Blue + 100 Happy Days – Day 91 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Days 89 & 90

Today’s happiness is actually in duplicate (hey, who wouldn’t want their happiness doubled occasionally?!), because even though I did take a 100 Happy Days photo yesterday, I didn’t write a 100 Happy Days post. I shared my photo on Instagram, and also featured it here… but just in case you missed it, I thought I’d […] The post 100 Happy Days – Days 89 & 90 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 32 + 100 Happy Days – Day 88

Today’s happiness is brought to you by receiving the very first present for my upcoming 48th birthday! No, I didn’t open it… I was warned that it was coming and instructed to leave it until January 1st, so I’ve tucked it away and will try to forget about it until then. But just receiving it […] The post Tangled Tuesday No ....more

#MicroblogMondays 15 – Comforting Warmth + 100 Happy Days – Day 87

I have been doing an awful lot of tangling lately, mostly in the late evenings right before I go to bed. I work at my desk, hunched over my paper, and often find that a good couple of hours have passed before I even realize it! Not a bad thing… except for the fact that […] The post #MicroblogMondays 15 – Comforting Warmth + 100 Happy Days – Day 87 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more
