Haiku of the Week

Our theme this month is Halloween icons. The tombstone is the ultimate Halloween icon. Grave markers give us information and no matter shape and size, they are last honors of the person the dead once were. Let’s be honest, some a little creepier than others.

Trick or Treat Tuesday: Come visit the graveyard

Will you get a treat or a trick?

Click on each tomb for a spooky surprise! (Some have sound, turn up your speakers.)

I hope you had fun sprinting through in the graveyard. I’m new at making these little videos. Self-taught. I promise I’ll get better at it. ūüôā

HAVE A HAPPY HALLOWEEK!

Recipe of the Month – April

Dead. I’m mostly dead inside, besides a few Frankensteinian moments, brought on either by self-preservation or energy drinks, I’m not sure yet. Point is, the Covid-19 pandemic has made blogging kinda tough lately.¬† When I realized I missed the deadline to post Recipe of the Month on its scheduled day, I knew I needed to post pronto, with a fitting tribute.¬† So, where do you put dead things? In a graveyard, of course!¬† Just so happens, I really love the idea of being buried inside Half Baked Harvest‘s Deathly Chocolate Graveyard Cakes.¬† Everyone is dying for a good chocolate recipe these days. and this is the one.
Now, if you excuse me, I need to go rewrite my will, again.
