Hello & Welcome to my 63rd episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is my dear, sweet husband’s birthdayโ€”on this 5th “Cinco de Mayo” day in the 5th month of May โค

Well it took a few tries, but our snow is finally ALL meltedโ€”again, for the 3rd time this season!!! Our treesย are barely budding. Red-Winged Blackbirds have returned for another season of sweet summertime tweets. Plus… mid-to-high 20’s ยบC temperatures (far preferred over the frozen fluff delivered the morning of my birthday) have bloomed just in time to celebrate hubby’s summer luvin’ personality โค

Ohhh it’s SO good to finally throw back the flannel, open up the windows, uncover the patio furniture and go outdoors to enjoy everything from breakfast to dinner, yard work and all things crafty!ย 

Our first (pic-less) patio picnic of 2017 was a menu of pork chops with roasted carrots and potatoes โค Today’s photo feastย of mouth-waterMELONing roll kuchenย (recipe posted here)ย was actually our last patio picnic from late-August 2016. Yup… that’s how long it’s been since our weather’s felt palatable for outdoor dining :-/ And yes, I do like playin’ with my food… gotta โค bits of hearty foodish-ness on a plate… LoL ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚ย

#61 ๐Ÿ’œ the snow came back…๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ป…but then all melted the very same day!


 

Hello & Welcome to my 61st episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is a tangled bit of freshly melted April snow, kitty cats and another blogging milestone ๐Ÿ™‚

Want to skip straight to cake? Check out Chef Hurricane’sย video below, featuring his how-to for decorating your own Yarn Ball Kitty Cake!

And how ’bout that snow, eh? Yup, our normally wacky weather struck again on April 3rd… SnoOow sweet of spring to gift me this wintery surprise on my birthday! Later that afternoon, my wish came true when it all melted ๐Ÿ™‚

April 7th also marked 2 full years since my iMac died and left the blogging to just you, me & my iPad… That’s actually how this whole “KWH iPad Show” thing began, in case you were wondering. An “about” page would be a good place to explain that. I really wanna-oughta- gotta buckle down and do that :-/

Anyhoo, the “KWH iPad Show” is just my way of amusing myself until we can finally replace my old iMac. Who could ever have imagined the show would last 2 years (and counting)… wOw!!! I’m thrilled to know you’re all here and that I didn’t just curl up in a blogless corner, somewhere โคย

Belated Pi Day greetings, everyone!ย 

awe gee whiz… Late again!!!ย Ohย well,ย I’ve been keeping busy with reading blogs and previously procrastinated iPad maintenance,ย while thinking of what to post for St. Patrick’s Day ๐Ÿ™‚ Then suddenly just now, I realized Pi Day 2016 was yesterday! … dohhh … :-/

But hey, that’s okay… This crafty blogger’s knit pie DIY caught my eye last yearย already, so I’m just going toย go ahead and postย it quickโ€”via my first “press this” WP share! Who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky next year and try my hand at this knit/bake technique in time for Pi Day 2017… Will you try?

Yup… any way you slice it,
any day isย a good day for knit pi day pie! โ™ฅ Jackie

Knitters are nerds. Proof? Search nerd, geek, and math in Ravelryโ€™s groups and find tons of chums hanging in places likeย GeekCraft,ย Geek Swap, and Botanica Mathematica. Needle crafters prove โ€ฆ

our teething sweetheart niece biting on a heart-shaped baking dishHello & Welcome to my 39th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is a Valentine menu of crafty foodish-ness that’ll surely have you stopping toย smell the roses… The fresh-baked, rose-shaped pizza roses & apple roses & chocolate-covered strawberry roses!!! โค

But first, I’d like to introduce you toย our youngest great-niece (hubby’s brother’s son’s daughter). Hmmm… looks like our lil’ teething sweetheart is trying to eat her momma’s baking-dish-heart out ๐Ÿ˜‰

Okay, now for the video how-to’s… They’reย not knitting, but they’d make greatย munching-whilst-knitting finger food! Plus, posting them to the blog means I’ll always know where to find ’em… You might want to bookmark this page and try these at home, too ๐Ÿ™‚

the KWH iPad Show #28 ๐Ÿ’œ sheepish flatulence

frowning Mac computer

.
Hello & Welcome
to my 28thย episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is the sheepish reason
behindย last week’s emergency landing for
Singapore Airlines flightย SQ7108 :-/

.

HuffPost Weird News - No Evidence Farting Livestock Caused Emergency Landing, Airline Says - article

Okay, soย what’s all this fuss about flatulence?
Well apparently, a group ofย 2,186 Aussie sheep walked aboardย a plane and farts began to fly! Smokeย alarms went off and the plane made an emergency landing in Bali. Can ewe believe it?!? Awkward!!! Imagine the embarrassing headlines, had that been 2,186 of usย … lol …ย Talk about the haunting effects of flaunting one’s flatulence… phew! So anyway, I’m sure this flock will feel sheepish for a while yet! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Click photo to read HuffPost article.

And did you know cauliflower can cause flatulence? Click here to read more.
Plus, here’s a video demonstrating how to carve sheep from cauliflower!
