Today’s Gratitude List + July 2015 Gratitude Linkup

I feel I have to start out today’s post with an apology to my faithful readers and gratitude list sharers. As I wrote in an earlier post, I found myself caught up in a bout of blogging dis-inspiration (and laziness!) during the month of June, and I’m very sorry that last week’s linkup post was […] The post Today’s Gratitude List + July 2015 Gratitude Linkup appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

If we met for coffee

If we met for coffee, I’d order a refreshing iced coffee with milk for myself (what would you have to drink?), and we would claim a patio table outside the café so that we could enjoy the gorgeous sunshine and soft summer breeze while we chatted. If we met for coffee, I’d mention how much […] The post If we met for coffee appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo Friday: Red

What is your favourite part of summer? There’s a whole lot to love about the season, but I especially delight in the abundance and variety of fresh, ripe, sweet fruit available throughout the warmer months. So although I had several photos I could have chosen for today’s Photo Friday “Red” challenge prompt, I thought this […] The post Photo Friday: Red appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

The Alphabet Salad Connection

The theme of this month’s NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) challenge is Connect – and since that particular topic is rather near and dear to my social-loving heart, I thought I’d tackle a few of the writing prompts now and then as I blog my way through the month of July. Sound like a plan? […] The post The Alphabet Salad Connection appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo A Day Challenge – June 18-30, 2015

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks! In honour of the holiday I had a little fun decorating my profile pic (I do love photo editing apps!), and present it here so that non-Canadians can share a little bit in the fun and celebration of my wonderful country’s 148th Birthday. And now, on to the […] The post Photo A Day Challenge – June 18-30, 2015 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 50

As you may (or may not!) have noticed, June was a real bust for me in terms of keeping up with my daily blogging practice. Early in the month I decided to skip posting on a day when I’d been busy and didn’t feel particularly compelled to write – and that, being my first break […] The post Tangled Tuesday No. 50 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s Gratitude List + June 2015 Gratitude Linkup

Happy Father’s Day to my wonderful dad, who is at the top of today’s gratitude list. He is a terrific father in a whole lot of ways, but in light of the tragedy in Charleston this past week I must say that I am especially grateful to him for instilling the understanding in a very […] The post Today’s Gratitude List + June 2015 Gratitude Linkup appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo Friday: Flowers

My heart has been heavy ever since hearing about the tragic deaths of nine people in a racially-motivated execution which was carried out in the midst of a prayer meeting at Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina. I will confess, with no small amount of shame, that the sheer frequency of mass shootings in […] The post Photo Friday: Flowers appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more
