Tangled Tuesday Break

A to Z Tangle Sampler - April, 2014

Hello, Tangled Tuesday followers! I do have a bunch of stuff to share, but this cold is sapping all of my energy (not to mention brainpower), so I’ve decided that I’m going to save them up and include them in next week’s post. Hope you’ll stop by then!

#MicroblogMondays 24 – Cold Comfort

MicroblogMonday

Well, the cold I mentioned yesterday decided to hit me full-force today, so thank goodness for the whole MicroblogMondays (emphasis on the micro) thing… because the idea of sitting at my laptop for any length of time – not to mention actually using my brain [click to continue…]

It started out with a little tickle in my throat on Friday… progressed with a sneezing fit (that freaked out poor Oscar) on Saturday… then developed into sinus pain, mild headache, sore throat, slight muscle aches, and the beginnings of a cough, all of which [click to continue…]

Scrapbook Stories

The other day I was digging through the contents of several as-yet-unpacked boxes stored in our basement (hey, it’s ONLY been three years since we moved in!), and came across something I haven’t looked at in what feels like forever – a gathering of [click to continue…]

Photo Friday: Weather

Last winter seemed to drag on and on and on and ON… and just when you thought it might finally be over, yet another cold snap or dump of snow would rear its ugly head and cause your hopeful heart to sink. The picture I chose for today’s Photo Friday [click to continue…]

My Creativity Inventory

Scissors Resting on Ribbon

Since the theme for February’s NaBloPoMo is “Make” (check out this post for more info and all the links!), I thought it would be a great time for me to review and update my (hopefully comprehensive) compilation of the leisure-time, hobby-type, [click to continue…]

I don’t know about you, but after two full weeks (now in the middle of the third) of connectivity issues at work… then having to clean up somebody else’s mess after yesterday’s thoughtless happening… followed later in the evening with me having to [click to continue…]

Tangled Tuesday No. 39

A to Z Tangle Sampler - April, 2014

This has nothing to do with Tangled Tuesday, but… remember yesterday’s Snow Day? And how Peter and I worked really hard together to clear our path and the sidewalk in front of our house? And how every last muscle in our bodies aches because it was [click to continue…]

#MicroblogMondays 23 – Snow Day!

MicroblogMonday

Our city got dumped on yesterday and throughout the night – not quite a record breaking snowfall, apparently, but I’m pretty sure it’s more than we’ve seen at one time since we moved to Windsor (and this is our fourth winter here). Plus there was [click to continue…]

One of the highlights of this past week was an incredibly fun evening with four friends (and thirty-some-odd strangers) at Paint Nite, where in the space of around two hours each person in the group painted, with instruction along the way, their own version of [click to continue…]

Another month of daily photos (and, with this post, daily blogging) is now DONE – I’d say I’m off to a good start for 2015! (Hey… in case you missed it, the FMS Photo A Day Challenge changed from monthly to weekly in 2015 – so if you’d like to try [click to continue…]

Photo Friday: Paradise

I struggled with finding something suitable for today’s Photo Friday challenge prompt of Paradise. Probably the closest thing to paradise I’ve ever experienced was visiting Hawaii (The Big Island as well as Kauai), but that was a long, long time ago – [click to continue…]

NaBloPoMo February 2015

Whatever happened to January?! Seriously, it feels to me as though we were just celebrating the holidays (though perhaps that’s because I STILL haven’t taken down our string of greeting cards – must get on with that!)… yet here we are, already, [click to continue…]

Wildcard Wednesday No. 2

Remember last fall when I did the 100 Happy Days Challenge, snapping and sharing daily photos of things that made me happy? When I was first introduced to the challenge I read a bit about the 100 Happy Days Foundation, and decided that once I’d finished [click to continue…]

Tangled Tuesday No. 38

A to Z Tangle Sampler - April, 2014

This has been a good and productive week in my little corner of the Zentangle® world! Not only did I learn some new tangles and participate in The Diva’s Challenge, but I also (for the first time in awhile!) picked up my pens and enjoyed several hours of [click to continue…]

#MicroblogMondays 22 – Symphony No. 6

MicroblogMonday

Learning to play the piano began for me at around age five, and I was fortunate enough to be able to carry on with formal lessons until my last year of high school. My teachers mostly focused on materials from The Royal Conservatory of Music to [click to continue…]

Peter and I spent yesterday together. We ate breakfast and visited with friends at our favourite diner. We took our books to a café and settled down at a corner table, drinks in hand, for a companionable session of quiet reading punctuated by the [click to continue…]

How has blogging changed your life?

I‘ve been writing – in some form or another, with varying degrees of consistency – for most of my life. So that’s nothing new.

I’ve even shared my writing – with friends face-to-face, in small [click to continue…]

Photo Friday: On A Walk

A few years ago a small group of friends and I used to go for regular walks on the Ganatchio Trail. It was a fun way to both get some exercise and get to know each other a little better, and I have fond memories of those friendship-building days back when [click to continue…]

My Bucket List

I first put my bucket list in writing less than a year ago, so I was rather surprised and delighted when I looked at it today and realized that I can already cross off one item and part of another. Actually, now that I think of it, several parts of [click to continue…]
