Blogging from A to Z + NaPoWriMo 2015

If you happened to be hanging around Alphabet Salad last year around this time, you might remember that I participated in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge by Tangling from A to Z. (And if you weren’t here back then, do check out the posts – they were a lot of fun!) Though I […] The post Blogging from A to Z + NaPoWriMo 2015 appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo Friday: Intense

The picture I chose for today’s Photo Friday challenge prompt of “Intense” fits the criteria in a couple of different ways – first, due to the intensity of the sky in the photo, but also because of the intense debate and controversy surrounding the Ambassador Bridge, its owner, and the various proposals and plans for […] The post Photo Friday: Intense appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Throwback Thursday: Toys & Games

I‘m pretty sure that no matter what differences may exist between us in terms of our ages, backgrounds, or cultures, we would all agree that toys and games of some sort or another were an essential and prominent part of our childhood years. Play is universal, after all! I grew up in the late 1960s […] The post Throwback Thursday: Toys & Games appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Wildcard Wednesday No. 10

For whatever reason, ever since yesterday evening and right through most of today I’ve kept having to remind myself that no, it’s NOT Thursday, but rather only Wednesday. Does that ever happen to you? Anyway, now that I’ve set myself straight (AND breathed a sigh of relief at having an “extra” day to complete the […] The post Wildcard Wednesday No ....more

Tangled Tuesday No. 45

Welcome! In spite of a schedule that turned out to be far busier than I had originally anticipated, I still managed to squeeze in a TON of tangling this past week – so today’s Tangled Tuesday post is full to bursting with all sorts of fun stuff. Hope you enjoy! ...more

#MicroblogMondays 30 – Truth in advertising?

This weekend kind of got away from me. (Seriously, there are NOT enough hours in the day – can someone please DO something about that?!) Plus I’ve been running around all over town today and my feet are sore and I’m ready to crash on the couch for the evening. So, thanks to the flexibility […] The post #MicroblogMondays 30 – Truth in advertising? ...more

Today’s Gratitude List + March 2015 Gratitude Linkup

How was your week? Mine has been great – not really due to any one thing or special happening (unless you count the first day of Spring and/or the complete departure of that lingering cold!), but just generally positive, and that fact is at the top of my gratitude list today. Here’s to many more […] The post Today’s Gratitude List + March 2015 Gratitude Linkup appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

251 Things That Make Me Happy

For several years now I’ve maintained my own personal Happy List, first to acknowledge and affirm and then to remind myself of life’s beauty, richness, and blessings. I hope that by sharing some of the items on my list I will inspire you to slow down for a few minutes and think about the things […] The post 251 Things That Make Me Happy appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Photo Friday: Spring

One year ago we were experiencing a long, cold, snowy winter that just seemed to drag on and on and on with no apparent end in view… so when “On my mind” showed up as one of the Photo A Day Challenge prompts last March, the first thing that popped into my head was, “Well, […] The post Photo Friday: Spring appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more

Throwback Thursday: Childhood Television Nostalgia

We didn’t get a whole lot of television channels when I was growing up way back in the 1970s (yes, I really am THAT old!), but my early childhood favourite TV shows included Sesame Street, Mr. Dressup, The Friendly Giant, Little House on the Prairie, Gilligan’s Island, and The Brady Bunch. Some random thoughts about […] The post Throwback Thursday: Childhood Television Nostalgia appeared first on Alphabet Salad ....more
