#MicroblogMondays 8 – Tangled Scans + 100 Happy Days – Day 38

Once again I’m getting ahead of my usual Tangled Tuesday post (it’s still Monday, isn’t it?!), but things are moving along and I just have to share! Continuing on from my announcement the other day that I’d finished my tangled alphabet, I managed to get to the print shop this afternoon and was able to […] The post #MicroblogMondays 8 – Tangled Scans + 100 Happy Days – Day 38 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 51 + 100 Happy Days – Day 37

Today’s happiness is brought to you by a delicious snack of WildFire Bakery bread, toasted and buttered and spread liberally (what can I say? I like a little bread with my jam!) with Mom’s chunky pear-ginger jam (AKA My Very Favourite Jam in the Whole Wide World). That this precious jar of spicy golden goodness […] The post Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 36

I almost can’t believe that this moment has actually arrived… the long-anticipated moment when I announce that I have now finished tangling the letter Z, and so today’s happiness is brought to you by a COMPLETED tangled alphabet!

Photo Friday: Autumn Colour + 100 Happy Days – Day 35

Yes, I’m back in Windsor… but as it turns out, today’s post is still going to be rather Victoria-centric, so please bear with me! First, for today’s Photo Friday “Autumn Colour” prompt (yes, I took the liberty of switching to the Canadian spelling!), I thought I’d share a picture I took the other day outside […] The post Photo Friday: Autumn Colour + 100 Happy Days – Day 35 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 34

My time in Victoria was absolutely marvelous. I saw people I wanted to see, did things I wanted to do, ate food I wanted to eat, and went places I wanted to go. It was fun, and relaxing, and nostalgic, and eventful, and overall simply wonderful – a visit I will always remember and memories […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 34 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo A Day Challenge – October 1-15, 2014 + 100 Happy Days – Day 33

My sister and I spent part of this afternoon – my last day in Victoria – at Fisherman’s Wharf. We dined at Barb’s, enjoying some of the best fish and chips, tartar sauce, and coleslaw I’ve ever tasted… wandered around looking at the colourful floating homes… and checked out the marine life. Along those lines, […] The post Photo A Day Challenge – October 1-15, 2014 + 100 Happy Days – Day 33 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 24 + 100 Happy Days – Day 32

Today’s happiness is brought to you by a box of freshly-made Chinese honey buns (also known as cocktail buns). This particular sweet, coconut-filled dessert is one of the treats I often enjoyed when I lived in Victoria, so when we found ourselves back in Chinatown this afternoon I just had to pick up a half […] The post Tangled Tuesday No. 24 + 100 Happy Days – Day 32 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

#MicroblogMondays 7 – Tea in Chinatown + 100 Happy Days – Day 31

Today’s happiness is brought to you by a trip downtown with my sister for a “Cosy Fall Drinks” tea class at Silk Road Tea in Chinatown. Silk Road is one of those Victoria-only shops that I wished I could pick up and carry with me to Windsor when I moved, so visiting it while I […] The post #MicroblogMondays 7 – Tea in Chinatown + 100 Happy Days – Day 31 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 50 + 100 Happy Days – Day 30

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians, and Happy Sunday to the rest of you! Today seems to me like an especially appropriate opportunity to stop, consider our blessings, and express our gratitude for all that we have. And, in the seasonal spirit of the holiday, today’s happiness is brought to you by the cutest (if […] The post Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 29

After a couple of long-ish flights, several reunions and gatherings with friends, two VERY early (for me) mornings, and a couple of full days at work, by the time Saturday arrived I was more than ready for a quiet day of doing very little. So that’s what I did! Today (after a decent sleep-in, of […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 29 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more
