Miscellany Monday

Another Monday and that means it's time to be random with Carissa.  Thanks Carissa, for always showing up for us and especially today in the midst of Hurricane Sandy.

 1,2,3 Cake...........
I found the perfect little night time treat (or anytime treat) on Pinterest the other day and, in case you didn't see it, I felt it my duty to share it with you. ~smile~  You take a box of Angel Food Cake mix and another box of cake mix (any kind your heart desires) and mix the two mixes together (in a large bowl or a ziploc bag).  You then take 3 tablespoonfuls of the mix and drop it into a coffee mug or small dish, add two tablespoons of water and stir well.  Then place in the microwave for 1 minute and "eureka" you have a nice hot piece of cake ready to be devoured.  You can top it with whipped topping or ice cream and make it even better.  I used the milk chocolate cake mix with my angel food mix.  Of course, it makes a whole lot, so I put it in quart jars and will give them as a "happy" and, I stuck one of the jars in my cabinets for my own use.  I think these would make great little gifts this Christmas season.  Just attach a cute little card with the directions, tie a ribbon around the top of the jar and there you have it.  Now, aren't you glad I shared this with you? 

Two alike...........
This is Krista and Kristin, twin daughter's of Hubby's office manager.  Aren't they just the cutest!  A couple of weeks ago their school was celebrating Homecoming all week and this particular day was "costume day" so they came as crayons.  They are about to celebrate their 17th birthday and it seems just yesterday they were born. And, believe it or not, I still do not know which one is which.  They are not identical, but close enough that it stresses me to try and figure it out. ~laugh~  

 Called and anointed...........
This precious couple show in the photo with Hubby and me are two of the most inspiring folks I know.  They have spent their entire lives at home and abroad spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. Tommy and Wade have been friends since childhood and we delight at any and every opportunity that we have to share with them.  They were guests in our church services yesterday and what a blessing.  They never miss an opportunity to change someone's life for eternity.

Dressed and ready...........
Clancy has almost worn this costume out and Halloween hasn't even arrived yet.  But, he will be in fine form come Wednesday.  He loves Spider Man and it only made sense for him to have this amazing costume.  Sure wish a bazillion miles (a small exaggeration) didn't separate us so that he and Hanna Beth could enjoy Halloween together. But, it is what it is and we'll enjoy it together from afar.

As you go through this week remember........

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Good morning! What a good idea on the "instant" cake...I might just use that as a gift idea too. The crayons are darling...look identical to me! Enjoy your day!

  2. That is a dangerous recipe for me!!! I would have every coffee mug in the house dirty!!

    Im scared of spiders...but something tells me that one is a friend and not a foe!!

  3. I love the cake idea and plan to use it this weekend while babysitting Miss Ava Grace. The twins are beautiful and I can easily see why it would take an effort to tell them apart. So wish we could have been at FBCB yesterday to see and hear Wade and Barbara. What an amazing couple! I think it's great that Clancy is getting to enjoy his costume; after all Halloween is only one day. Have a great Monday!

  4. I love the cake idea! Another cute way to package is put the mix into a pretty mug.

    My 6 year old nephew is always in a costume : )

  5. I've seen that instant cake ... not sure why I haven't tried it. I wonder ... how long does the cake mix combo last? Otherwise I'd have an instant cake with every meal (so it wouldn't go to waste) ... and I don't think that my waistline would appreciate that. ha!

    I love seeing littles dressed up in their costumes ... Halloween is only one day ... why not enjoy those costumes for a week or ten? ;-)

  6. Thanks for the cake idea. Of course I have to try it now! Then give away as gifts. I love the Joyce's idea--it's two gifts in one!

    I remember when Joel was Spiderman. He lived in that costume! Your Clancy is getting someone's money's worth out of his own Spidey gear. :)O

  7. I haven't tried on of those 1,2,3 cakes yet but they sound so easy.
    The girls are beautiful. How wonderful when people dedicate their lives to teaching His word.
    Little ones get so excited about Halloween, Clancy looks so cute.

  8. I did not see this on pinterest, so thank you for sharing....and what a super great idea for those "Happy" gifts for others...Love the thought process going on here..
    Cute crayons and spider man is sure to be a big hit...

  9. i'm enamored with the cake in a mug. to think of having cake that quickly is amazing and dangerous. : )

  10. cake in a mug how fun... anointed, yes Lord's servants, what a blessing

    cute spider man!!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
