Wednesday Randomness

It is Wednesday, right? I feel like I’ve ridden the Tilt-a-Whirl at the carnival, pulled in so many directions. I did the final proofing on my devotional this morning, ended up deleting 100+ words and tightening up the rest and finally hit “send.” Here are my random thoughts for today:

1. Hubby will be so surprised when he gets home and sees this: 

 

Pineapple Coconut Angel Food Cake

Pineapple Coconut Angel Food Cake

I found a 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple and an angel food cake mix languishing in the cabinet. I added 3/4 cup of shredded coconut and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Stirred it all together, poured into the cake pan and baked at 350F for 50 minutes. The kitchen smelled so good, the aroma made me hungry. I’m thinking DINNER. Or afternoon SNACK. 

2. Jae got his cast off Monday. He now wears a brace and will have a couple weeks of physical therapy. His lost Star Wars light saber was found inside the cast. Boys!

3. Last week I was at my daughter’s house. I left the room (and my iPhone) for ONE MINUTE. Teenagers! LOL Love you, Miss P.

When I got home, I found pictures of just about every family member on there. Oh, they were having fun with that! I like that the captures are impromptu, no posing–or hiding from the camera. 

4. I captured a wee bit of a sun dog (parhelion–new word for me!) at the park one afternoon.

5. I read this quote on someone’s blog, but forgot where I saw it.
“Look and you will find it. What is unsought will go undetected.” Sophocles
When I think of the wonders I do see, I can’ t help but wonder what I’m missing. Let’s keep our eyes open (and camera in hand) there’s always something to discover.

  1. I was at Ginter a week ago and had someone point out a sun dog to me. I’d never heard that term before! There were two – one on each side of the path but my camera did not capture it very well.

    The cake looks delicious! Maybe I’ll come by after supper and help you with the leftovers.

    Loved the granddaughter picture – she sure did have fun with your phone!

    • Someone had a sun dog in a blog post–that’s where I learned of them. I saw one on each side of the sun on vacation. I need to go back and find the photos. The cake IS delicious. It’s after 7:00, hubby’s still not home. I had to try it. P got some great shots–including her mother!–on another phone-left-behind opportunity.

  2. I want a piece of that cake. But, if you can believe it, I’ve already had cake and ice cream today. I love that you found random photos of your family on your phone. That is so sweet. You just taught me a new word, and that is a beautiful picture of the sun!

  3. Mm..that cake looks delicious. I laughed at your g-daughter’s selfie. Every time one of my sons-in-law is here and I leave my camera out, I find a goofy-looking photo of him on it after he & my daughter leave. Countless times….but still makes me laugh.
