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.

Photo Friday: Architecture

Today's Photo Friday selection is another picture taken from the Windsor side of the Detroit Riverfront, just a short walk from my house. I was tickled by the juxtaposition of the quaint wooden birdhouse against the steel and glass of Detroit's skyline - two completely different sizes and styles of architecture captured in the same shot. ...more

Some questions on self-image

What if you suddenly discovered that some long-held, deeply ingrained, negative belief about yourself was a complete and utter lie? What if for one moment you chose to see yourself the way others saw you, instead of through your own jaded, judgmental eyes and preconceived notions? What if every time you were prepared to automatically say I can't, you choked off those words and instead declared I'll try? How would it change your life? Please share your thoughts... ...more

Today's Gratitude List - Linkup No. 42

This has been quite a week, hasn't it? Though my own personal corner of the world is fine at the moment, it sure does seem as though the news has been exceptionally full of sadness and strife over the past little while. Perhaps that's all the more reason to take a few minutes to stop and focus on gratitude... even, in some cases, for the blessings that come in spite of the bad. ...more

Photo A Day Challenge - August 1-16, 2014

The August Photo A Day Challenge is only half over, but already I think it's one of my favourite months yet. For whatever reason I've been really satisfied with several of the shots I've taken, and have felt as though my creativity has been bending and stretching. It's a good feeling, and I'm enjoying it while it lasts! ...more

Photo Friday: Moody

It didn't take long at all for me to decide which of my shots to use for today's Photo Friday prompt! I took this one in May when we were outside doing some cleanup in the back yard, with Oscar and Felix supervising from Peter's office window. ...more

Humbling

This morning I got going a little earlier than usual, as I was expecting a delivery and wanted to be sure I was awake and dressed and didn't miss hearing the doorbell. I'd stayed up the night before just as late as I normally do, so was somewhat tired and bleary-eyed as I went through my usual morning routine. Still, once I'd made a coffee and settled down in front of my computer I realized that in spite of my sleepiness it was rather nice to have some extra, unexpected quiet time of my own - time to think, to prepare myself for the day, to catch up on odds and ends. ...more
