Benjamin Cho Fall 2007 Collection

Okay, so it’s past the stroke of October… sighhh… I’ve missed the calendar mark, again. But life’s battles continue and I’m determined (come Hell or high water) to post this mixed bag o’ treats via WordPress, YouTube and facebook!ย 

Let’s begin with Pete’s pOwerful post @ย Revelation310 “Rage Against the Machine” … Oh wOw… Have you noticed how the entire world’s been spinning freakishly out of control? Here in Canada, useless Soros puppeticians bent on destroying Canada took the helm 3 yrs ago. Yup, way back when life still seemed “normal” :-/ Hope to change that in the 2019 election?!? Well anyhoo… Pete’s article makes Biblically soundย sense to me. Do you agree?ย 

Please also enjoy the bountiful harvest of posts from my blog’s fb page. Hopefully something for everyone, including stylishly crafty foodish fun andย Nepal’s scariest waterfall highway!ย 

One Hundred Percent” @ Narrow is The Way Ministries and Pastor Charles Lawson’s sermon (below) are about the afterlife… Hell is a real place and my heart’s intent is to scare the Hell out of you so that you don’t end up there! โคย 

Coming up next time, I’ll finally fill you in on the project that’s been my focus apart from the blog. And of course, more of that wild ‘n wacky weather of ours ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

Well okay… here’s a link forย 
my “top secret” project

#53 ๐Ÿ’œ morbid moment with a soft touch

RIP li'l baby weasel

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 onย 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 verbalismย 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 guyโ€”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!ย

Today is “I LOVE YARN DAY” โค more loops, less hoop d’ loop!

I love yarn day 2013 logo

Today is I LOVE YARN DAY … and we the knitters, crocheters & crafters (lovers of yarn that we are)
LOVE to increase our yarn! Yes it’s true, we’ve all
let our stitches slip, once in a while. And the fact is,
there will be days when we’llย need to drop them
altogether. Even so, we all know that the keyย to
any raised increaseย is to fundamentallyย alternate
withย a row or more of solid, foundational,ย good ol’ fashionedย knit & purl or single crochet stitches.

But today is I LOVE YARN DAY … and we the knitters, crocheters & crafters
(lovers of yarn that we are) live in pursuit of a good yarn on the selvage!
We continually gauge ourselves, while planning every strategically slipped,
droppedย and/or most basic of stitches. And we are mindful of the fact that,
as withย any good yarn, every loose end will eventually need to be woven in.

Maybe if politicians all knew how to knit, the fabric of life
would be constructed of more loops with fewer hoop d’ loop… ?!?

One more note, in the spirit of today’s “birds of a feather” theme…
Thanksgiving Day in Canada is this weekendโ€”on Monday, October 14th. ๐Ÿ™‚
We are thankful and looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with family.โค
Yes, our family and turkey feast with all the trimmings is a mere 13 hour drive away!

And if a certain rafter group decides to talk turkey?
Well, then everyone will be thankful to be able to get back to work!

Happy Thanksgivingย โค Jackie

Blessings โค Thanksgiving

Here in Canada, our National Day of Thanksgiving is the second Monday in October. Itโ€™s a day off work and (hopefully) a long-weekend filled with family, food โ€˜n fun. Besides all that, though, this date on the calendar is like a friendly reminder to exercise our grateful hearts โค … Thank God for family, freedom, health, shelter, comfort, safety, success, the ability to breath, think, wiggle our fingers โ€˜n toes, live…

The Lord is my strength and shield.
I trust Him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
Psalm 28:7 (NLT)

And now, in the spirit of living in thanksgiving, I have gathered together a few of my favourite thought-provoking bits of inspirational wisdom. All these are shared freely online. My search efforts to reveal and acknowledge the original source authors, however, have lead only to seemingly endless re-postings by other grateful hearts… Even so, I thought it might be nice to showcase a few inspiring messages here, in a slide show.

Perhaps you have already seen all of these?
Well, here is one more link that I think we may all be thankful for…

Happy Thanksgiving from Canada to everyone!
