MicroblogMondays200x200

We can all lay claim to some unusual, harmless things about our physical selves – little quirks and oddities that when combined with the rest of who we are make us unique. I certainly have them – and I don’t know about you, but I rather enjoy [click to continue…]

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 [click to continue…]

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. [click to continue…]

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 [click to continue…]

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 [click to continue…]

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 [click to continue…]

Tangled Tuesday No. 50

A to Z Tangle Sampler - April, 2014

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 [click to continue…]

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 [click to continue…]

More than halfway through June? How can it be?! Guess it’s time for me to share my first batch of photos from the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge.

Tangled Tuesday No. 49

A to Z Tangle Sampler - April, 2014

This week has been all about the tangling for me – learning patterns, starting (and finishing!) a project, and even trying my hand at a new technique. I’ve been having a lot whole of fun with it, and I’m excited to share the results with you. [click to continue…]

Happy Sunday! Wherever you are, however you might be feeling, whatever the weather, there is always something in your life for which to be grateful. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to stop and consider your blessings and then share some of them [click to continue…]

Photo Friday: Atmosphere

photofriday

One of the spots I love most in all the world is Pagliacci’s Restaurant (Pag’s, for short) in Victoria, BC. The food is absolutely divine, the atmosphere loud, bustling, and energetic, and the warm terracotta-coloured walls with New York City-inspired mural [click to continue…]

My Food Dislike List – UPDATED!

If you happen to follow me on various forms of social media, you may have seen that yesterday’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt of “Disgust” inspired me to post a photo of a big bunch of cilantro (shudder!)… and the subsequent stream of comments that followed [click to continue…]

Happy Tangleversary to Me!

Birthday Candles

Exactly two years ago today (that would be June 9, 2013 for those of you keeping track at home!) I opened a new-to-me book (One Zentangle A Day: A 6-Week Course in Creative Drawing for Relaxation, Inspiration, and Fun by Beckah Krahula), learned [click to continue…]

Just on the off-chance that there was ever any doubt in your mind that we really, truly, honestly DO live with four cats, I present you with photographic proof – the first picture I’ve been able to take of all four of the furry beasts together in one place [click to continue…]

Today’s post features something a little unusual at the top of my gratitude list – my new glasses, which I just picked up this week. I’m feeling grateful about them for a number of reasons: that the woman I dealt with at the store was very patient with [click to continue…]

Photo Friday: Road Trip!

I will admit right up front that my selection of picture for today’s Photo Friday challenge prompt of “Road Trip!” is very, very silly. It’s something I set up for a previous Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge (the prompt in that case was “Yellow”), and I happen [click to continue…]

Well, the month of May is now history (at least for this year!), and I’ve already moved on to snapping my daily photos for the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge in June – but this is the first opportunity I’ve had to actually share the remainder of last [click to continue…]
