Hello & Welcome to my 53rd episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is a ghoulish true tale from half a year ago, when I stumbled upon the frightful sight of a wee baby weasel…
😮😨😱

Ah yes… I remember that morbid moment like it was only yesterday. The startling moment that caused me to scream at the sight of a dead (or was it still alive?!?) rodent’s body, right there on our backyard patio!!! … Well, perhaps it was less of a scream and more like a squeal or shriek?? Hmmm… nothing full throttle or shrill, mind you… Probably something as simple as “eeek!!!” with a bit of a jump… Yeah, that’s it… a startled jump! Or would that be jump startle?? Well anyway…

it was a lovely, warm and sunny afternoon in early May. The lawn and foliage was rising from winter dormancy. The flowers had not yet begun to bloom. Then suddenly, the piercing sound (which can scarcely be described as silence) of startled verbalism emitted from me…

A crowd of witnesses flocked to the scene… Well okay, our nearly 10-year old next-door neighbour and her friend happened to be passing by. Thankfully, and without a moment’s hesitation, the fearless young girls ran to my rescue! Upon closer examination, the tiny creature was found to be laying in a pool of its own blood. We pronounced the rodent dead at the scene. Prior to proper burial, we proceeded to respectfully photograph the unfortunate li’l guy—for the sake of its 15 minutes of fame via the blog.

Thanks to this photographic evidence, the victim has now been identified as a baby weasel. Yup… with an empty field out back and community pond around the corner, wildlife sightings are just part of the environment. So who knows what some other neighbour’s cat might drag into our yard next?!? :-/

Special thanks to Madison and Sarah, for their assistance throughout this investigation!

Moonlight, Bloody Moonlight

Well, it’s October 31st…
a scary night of fright for some.

Personally, this spooky victorian treat of 19th century party games from AnnabelleTroy is tricky enough for me! Especially since my earlier attempt to reblog AnnabelleTroy’s “Victorian Lamb Cake” post turned out to be a bit of a nightmare! … LoL … So go on now and sit a spell with Annabelle… Show her some love and tell her I sent you! 🙂 ♥ Jackie

Well it’s that spooky halloweenie time of year again. Ghoulish horror or any form of gruesomeness is not my thing, though. Real life just seems scary enough on its own, I’d say… Might anyone agree?

All the craftiness, costumes and chocolate is the fun part, for me. Lots of chocolate! Plus costumes such as this knit dress by fashion designer Benjamin Cho. It’s a bit creepy, yet frightfully delightful! You might say it is rather boo-o-o-o-tiful 😉

Now close your eyes and try to imagine the rather boo-o-o-o-tiful Cinderella’s stylish journey home via this magical pumpkin carve-a-van… Ahhh yes, it’s like a halloweenie fairytale 🙂
