Ten Spells a-Casting

“On the 10th day of Christmas, Zanzibar gave to me:

Ten spells a-casting,

Nine spiders weaving.

Eight cats a howling.

Seven bats a squeaking.

Six cauldrons boiling,

Five magic wands –

Four hooting owls.

Three blind mice,

Two jumping frogs,

And a sardine prepared for my tea.”

Have fun “casting” these “spells”!

Zanzibar’s Birthday

It’s here!!!!!


Zanzibar’s Birthday has arrived and it’s in ALL the app stores, Apple, Amazon and Google. And I think it’s my favorite app so far. Poor Zanzibar – doesn’t he look miserable in the first few pages? He really wanted a birthday party so, so much!! And I wanted to magic one for him so, so much. But oh me, oh my. I really messed up on this one.

You see, I thought if I worked with what I had then the spell would still come out ok. So when it called for five new candles, I used four and a half…because I’d used one when the lights went out. And then when it said add five jelly beans – one red, one yellow, one blue, one green and one black — well I added an EXTRA black one because Zanzibar is a black cat, and the black ones are my favorite. But my biggest mistake was adding five jugs of water instead of five jugs of milk, fresh from the cow, because we don’t have a cow. How foolish of me.


Still it all worked out well in the end – and I’m not going to tell you what happened. Just go to the Get Heckerty page and get Zanzibar’s Birthday!



You’ll be SO PLEASED you did!
