SoCS: Handsome is Just Icing on the Cake


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.

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

  4. 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? πŸ˜‰

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. What better icing on the cake than your hubby πŸ™‚

  8. 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.

  9. I love this! It really is a stream of conscious. πŸ˜€ Enjoyed!
