Laurel Regan

Laurel Regan blogs about life as she lives it at Alphabet Salad - "an eclectic assortment of rants & ramblings."

Laurel is a writer, tangler, iPhoneographer, cat herder, learner of French and Italian, crocheter, needle felter, Growlita, iFan, on-and-off politics junkie, 80s music trivia freak, and ongoing work in progress who is rather taken with the phrase "professional dilettante" (courtesy Anne/Vintage Woman) as a substitute for "random and scattered."

She is originally from Victoria, BC but now lives in Windsor, Ontario (that's in Canada!) with her husband Peter and two gorgeous, fluffy tuxedo cats named Felix and Oscar.

How has blogging changed your life?

I‘ve been writing – in some form or another, with varying degrees of consistency – for most of my life. So that’s nothing new. I’ve even shared my writing – with friends face-to-face, in small specialized publications – on several occasions ....more

Photo Friday: On A Walk

A few years ago a small group of friends and I used to go for regular walks on the Ganatchio Trail. It was a fun way to both get some exercise and get to know each other a little better, and I have fond memories of those friendship-building days back when I was first putting […] The post Photo Friday: On A Walk appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

My Bucket List

I first put my bucket list in writing less than a year ago, so I was rather surprised and delighted when I looked at it today and realized that I can already cross off one item and part of another. Actually, now that I think of it, several parts of the first item on the […] The post My Bucket List appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Wildcard Wednesday No. 1

Blatantly stealing, renaming, and reviving an ever-so-fun idea from the ever-so-wonderful Becky Cochrane, who first came up with it way back in the height of our LiveJournal days (circa 2008ish)… I have in my hot little hands a copy of a delightful book called 14,000 things to be happy about, which is filled to bursting […] The post Wildcard Wednesday No. 1 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 37

I don’t know whether it’s the post-holiday January doldrums, but I seem to be suffering from a bit of a creativity slump these days. (On the good side, I seem to be coming out of my reading slump, so there’s that, at least!) Can you relate? Still, I have managed to do some tangling over […] The post Tangled Tuesday No ....more

#MicroblogMondays 21 – Sans maquillage

Today I accomplished something that the guys back in my school days used to laughingly dare the girls to do (though I don’t believe that they had many – or ANY! – takers): I left the house sans maquillage – that is, without makeup. Amazing, right?! ...more

Today’s Gratitude List + January 2015 Gratitude Linkup

After facing a deep disappointment, dealing with a new allergy development, and really feeling the overall bleakness that is January, sitting down to compose a gratitude list is in equal parts challenge and welcome reprieve. It’s challenging, because who wants to take the time to look with a positive eye at all your blessings when […] The post Today’s Gratitude List + January 2015 Gratitude Linkup appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

BlogHer ’15: A difficult decision

I‘ve been stewing about something for quite some time now – a couple of months, at least. Oh, I haven’t been thinking about it every minute of every day – but it’s always there in the back of my mind, nagging at me, reminding me that I need to deal with it and make a […] The post BlogHer ’15: A difficult decision appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo Friday: Sunrise

Today’s Photo Friday challenge prompt is Sunrise. Sigh. I have plenty of sunset photos, but being the extreme non-morning person that I am, I can’t say that I’ve ever been both awake AND in a photo-taking mood at sunrise (no matter how wondrous the sight may have been) ....more

Photo A Day Challenge – January 1-15, 2015

In case you missed it, the FMS Photo A Day Challenge changed from monthly to weekly in 2015. I’m personally still planning to hang in there for the whole month (in fact, I’d love to do another full year if I can!), but if that’s not something that easily fits into your schedule it’s good […] The post Photo A Day Challenge – January 1-15, 2015 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more
