Today’s SoCS post is “icing on the cake,” because HAPPY BIRTHDAY to LINDA, our SoCS, #JusJoJan host! Linda asks that we write about the first thing that comes to mind when we think about the phrase, icing on the cake.
My husband David is icing on the cake. Not that we eat a lot of sweets, but he’s an extra blessing. Before he came back into my life, I was willing to stay single and starting to accept that, if me staying single was what God wanted. I focused on the things single women have accomplished and the advantages of being single – the freedom, no snoring, doing yoga while watching TV with no make-up on (which I do anyway.) It’s totally okay to be single. And I’d always have dogs for company.
Having a compatible partner is icing on the cake – extra. He’s not perfect of course. He snores and he doesn’t like to watch TV, so I watch whatever I want while doing yoga with no make-up. And he doesn’t like coconut. It’s a texture thing. Like I don’t like sauerkraut. It’s a texture and a smell thing. Yuck. But David is intelligent, handsome, spiritual, and he loves dogs. Handsome is icing on the cake. It’s also a strange word, hand some. As in, hand some cake over.
Getting back to coconut, my favorite icing on a cake would be the coconut pecan icing that normally comes on German chocolate cake. I would put that icing on dark chocolate cake with chocolate chips in the cake and more nuts, because I’m nuts about nuts. It would all be vegan, preferably, which is entirely possible, and while I’m at it, no calories, which is very unlikely, unless I’m imagining the whole thing which is probably for the best. But I could have some nuts and dark chocolate which I do have on hand. Some.
Now “some” looks weird. Somewhere over the rainbow way up high. Okay, enough already.

Handsome is icing on the cake. And German Chocolate is my favorite cake and favorite pie.

What? There’s a German chocolate pie?! How did I not know that? I just went to look it up and my mouth is watering.

I’ve made it at home, but mine pailed in comparison to Marie Cakendars version. (In the store NOT the frozen one)
January 22, 2022 at 8:26 pm
I’ll be keeping an eye out for that.

What a lovely tribute to your hubby. Happiness is icing on the cake!

Thanks, Maggie. Happiness IS icing on the cake. 🙂

I’m so happy for you that you found your handsome icing on the cake. He should be honored that you wrote about him today…so much so that he goes out in the kitchen to make you a vegan German chocolate cake. Right? 😉
January 22, 2022 at 3:26 pm
Oh yes! What a great idea! Thanks Mary. 🙂

HI Joanna, you made me smile about a husband being icing on the cake, and a handsome husband being extra icing. I think we all think our husbands are handsome as, in our eyes, they are. My hubby also snores.
January 22, 2022 at 3:33 pm
I’m glad you could relate. You bring up a good point that when someone is considerate and has a good heart, it makes him handsome.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, they say.

I’m not sure my wife would consider my looks to be icing on the cake, but I’m glad to see you say that about your hubs. I do love German Chocolate Cake.
January 22, 2022 at 8:17 pm
I bet she does. Plus, all those practical skills.
January 22, 2022 at 1:46 pm
What better icing on the cake than your hubby 🙂

These days it’s homemade keto dark chocolate cream cheese fudge with lots of pecans. I can dream of German chocolate cake, though! ❤ Enjoyed the post, JoAnna.
January 23, 2022 at 1:38 pm
That sounds great! I love dark chocolate. Glad you enjoyed the post! ❤

An amusing stream
January 23, 2022 at 8:39 pm
Thanks, Derrick. I’m glad you found it amusing. I never know what’s going to happen in the stream of consciousness.

I love this! It really is a stream of conscious. 😀 Enjoyed!

Thanks, Gloria. I never know what I’ll find in the stream. Glad you loved it. Thanks for reading! 🙂
