Photo Friday: Brightly Lit + 100 Happy Days – Day 49

My response to today’s Photo Friday “Brightly Lit” prompt is actually a two-fer. Initially I had one photo in mind, then as I was searching for it I came across another that I thought seemed particularly appropriate, so in the end when I couldn’t choose between the two I decided to share both! The first […] The post Photo Friday: Brightly Lit + 100 Happy Days – Day 49 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 48

Today there is cause for a milestone celebration in my little corner of the blogosphere, as this is – wait for it – the 1,000th post I’ve shared with you, my readers, since opening Alphabet Salad in August, 2009! I’m pretty lousy at math, but even I can figure out that this works out to […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 48 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 47

Today? I’ve got nothing to offer. NOTHING ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 26 + 100 Happy Days – Day 46

As a sort of continuation of yesterday’s post, today’s happiness is brought to you by the satisfaction of a fun job completed – in this case, dividing all the goodies I bought and distributing them among 80 little treat bags, ready to be handed out to trick-or-treaters on Friday. I enjoyed preparing them… and, happily, […] The post Tangled Tuesday No. 26 + 100 Happy Days – Day 46 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

#MicroblogMondays 9 – A Ton of Treats + 100 Happy Days – Day 45

Today’s happiness is brought to you by a whole ton of treats! No, they’re not for me (my idea of a treat is more along the lines of a bag of chips!) – rather, they will be assembled into tiny decorative bags and distributed this coming Friday (Halloween, for those of you in countries who […] The post #MicroblogMondays 9 – A Ton of Treats + 100 Happy Days – Day 45 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 52 + 100 Happy Days – Day 44

Today’s happiness is brought to you by a sunny Sunday afternoon with time to curl up on the couch with an assortment of creature comforts – soft blanket, a fluffy cat or two, hot cup of tea – and a book I’ve wanted to read for quite some time but never managed to get around […] The post Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 52 + 100 Happy Days – Day 44 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 43

Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile know that I love organization. Along those lines, you might even remember that in spite of my adoration for electronic gadgets (particularly my iPhone), I actually prefer using a paper planner to organize my schedule and document the happenings in my life. (I wrote […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 43 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo Friday: Translucent + 100 Happy Days – Day 42

I didn’t think I had anything to share for today’s Photo Friday “Translucent” prompt, but as I scrolled through my archives I found a picture I took a short time ago which I thought would work quite well. It’s the view through a privacy window on the side of our house, where the ivy has […] The post Photo Friday: Translucent + 100 Happy Days – Day 42 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 41

Today’s happiness is brought to you by my fluffy goofball Oscar. Before I got out of bed this morning I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and Oscar – as he usually does – was walking all over me, getting in between my face and the iPad screen, and generally doing anything he could to […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 41 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

100 Happy Days – Day 40

Today has not been a happy day for Canadians. For those of you who may have missed it, there was an attack this morning at Parliament Hill in Ottawa that left two dead and several others injured, and at the time of writing the situation is ongoing and considered “fluid” according to police. Happiness is […] The post 100 Happy Days – Day 40 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more
