Remember how I teased yesterday that I was going to reveal the identity of my super-special Christmas gift in today’s post? Well, I’m going to do so – never fear! – but first, I have a little story I want to share that will give you a bit of context as to why [click to continue…]

photofriday

This season our little part of the world hasn’t yet seen much in the way of wintry weather – really, just one small snowfall that only stuck around for a short time. There have been some fairly cold temperatures, but also some non-jacket days that totally felt like [click to continue…]

More fun stuff from Zazzle was left in my mailbox today! This time it was several sheets of stickers – one of my Holly & Snowflake design, and one of each of my four Zendalas, all with a matte finish. I love how they turned out! [click to continue…]

You know, I’m beginning to think that the mail carriers and couriers in this city are becoming my new best friends… because it seems as though every time there’s a knock on the door it’s one of them with a delivery that makes my day! ‘Tis the season, I suppose. [click to continue…]

Funny boy Felix has a brand new way of showing affection (or perhaps, more accurately, communicating a “get up and feed me already” message!) – that is, climbing on my chest just as I’m waking up in the morning and licking my chin (and [click to continue…]

100 Happy Days – Day 92

happysmiley

Wow, am I ever glad the day is done and I am back home! I spent the afternoon braving the slow-walking, middle-of-the-aisle-stopping, children-whining insanity that is Christmas shopping at the mall, and I am beat. But happy, too… because [click to continue…]

My choice for today’s Photo Friday “Blue” challenge was actually taken fairly recently – just about a month and a half ago, in fact – in response to a “Something Blue” prompt for the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge. So I apologize to those of you [click to continue…]

100 Happy Days – Days 89 & 90

happysun

Today’s happiness is actually in duplicate (hey, who wouldn’t want their happiness doubled occasionally?!), because even though I did take a 100 Happy Days photo yesterday, I didn’t write a 100 Happy Days post. I shared my photo on [click to continue…]

Today’s happiness is brought to you by receiving the very first present for my upcoming 48th birthday! No, I didn’t open it… I was warned that it was coming and instructed to leave it until January 1st, so I’ve tucked it away and will try to forget about it [click to continue…]

I have been doing an awful lot of tangling lately, mostly in the late evenings right before I go to bed. I work at my desk, hunched over my paper, and often find that a good couple of hours have passed before I even realize it! Not a bad thing… except for the fact that [click to continue…]

Today’s happiness is brought to you by a decadent coffee mousse dessert, prepared by yours truly. Well, not exactly the dessert itself – more accurately, I’m happy today because of the reason why I made the dessert in the first place – that is, to bring to [click to continue…]

The Photo Friday challenge today is Depth of Field, and because it’s a prompt that also came up several months ago in the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge, I knew right away that the picture I took back then would be the one I shared here today. [click to continue…]

Today’s happiness came to me (and my oh-so-winter-dry hands) in the form of a bottle of moisturizing lotion in a lovely-smelling, summery-sounding “Coconut & Lime” scent.
