Trick or Treat you decide!

Happy Halloween Everyone!
Be Safe!!

I started to do a Thursday thirteen yesterday but it didn't work out! Isn't it funny how we start out on one path then we are deviated by something completely unexpected. I am amazed that I can spend so much time at home, yet it still happens to me. That's what makes life such an incredible mystery!

This looks like a scene from Mary Poppins, reminds me of the song feed the birds. Seriously looks like a timeless photo. It was taken only a few days ago in Toronto. My daughter was floored by all the pigeons and squirrels there.

When she was little she loved squirrels and we had one we used to feed. In the last year she witnessed a lady bitten at a funeral then a few months later she was chased by one in Beacon Hill park in Victoria. Just last week she was at a family dinner with her dad and a friendly squirrel followed the cat into the living room and sat on the ottoman. Everyone sitting in shock burst into hysterical laughter. She informs me there is a park in Toronto rampant with squirrels. I'm thinking maybe she better make friends with this nemesis of hers. They don't seem to be going away!

I've been missing her terribly. Away on business, she's been working round the clock some days. Being with other people it's been difficult to have an intimate conversation. I realize if she ever moves out I will have to at least connect to her heart once in a while to stay sane! Looks like she might be trying to mail herself home! Unfortunately that's not the case!

Bryan was supposed to go with her but he couldn’t get the time off. We are enjoying each other and working on a project together. My art and his music, hopefully I’ll have a link up in the days to come.

I have been searching the net for Halloween food to make for today. Any suggestions?

This is a trick these two cakes were made in Toronto!

Surprise surprise my blog is rated General...nice! Now anyone knowing me so many years ago would have never suspected that! I pulled two posts to get it there though! I never felt comfortable with them back in 2006, this is a good excuse to dump them! One was an email joke.

That always makes me mad. One day I was in the musical "Oliver" and someone that I knew back-stage (I can't remember her name my memory isn't wonderful sometimes) Anyway, someone back-stage suggested that I put in a fake tooth. I did but none of the teenagers did. I think that's sad to be honest..that teens worry so much about their looks that they can't have a little fun. Ok I'm getting off the subject here...lolol sorry...
Love your blog! Your always so much fun. Even though you have alot to deal with. :) LOVE your halloween food!!! Thanks for posting this!!

One of these days I'm going to see what my blog rating would be. I'm guessing PG.

This was a great post - so full of good stuff!

I'm so curious about Canadian health care. Is it similar to the system in the UK?

Loved the pics of Pepper, the cakes, the birds, everything!
