What do you Ponder?

So for grins I love to use the word, ponder.
It just sounds like less effort than, think about.
There are certain things that occur that make me stop for a moment and

There is the laundry ponder...
Almost weekly as I'm folding sheets, "where is that fourth pillowcase?"
I have two sets of white sheets for my bed with a total of 4 pillow cases.
Months ago I came up short a pillow case....drat!
I've looked high and low, it's no where to be found.
It's more annoying than the occasional missing sock, 
I have more than enough socks....
I'm trying to shake the memory of the missing pillowcase,
I don't understand why it continues to puzzle me to the extreme.
It's like trying to shake gum off the bottom of a shoe, it won't budge.

Then there's the Pinterest Ponder........
I will go on pinterest about once a month to see whats new.
I end up pinning almost every post on, how to have thin thighs, how 
to get rid of back fat, how to shed the spare tire on what used to resemble a 
stomach, how to loose whatever all that is that hangs off my arms.!
All with good intentions of doing something about "it."
Once I've claimed 15 or so of the fat facts....
in an instant I find myself pinning dessert recipes, meals with cheese and/or butter
as main ingredients.....with an occasional "low cal" dish for good measure,really?

Just today my cousin Dona Dee shared a "Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake" 
on Facebook. I responded with my usual response to a photo of future fat on my body, 

Just as I finished typing the last paragraph, my Facebook alerted me to a new post.
My daughter in law Katie just posted a photo of said Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake!

Where have you been all my life?!
Get the recipe from Oh My God Chocolate Desserts.
It must be a sign!
Raspberry's will be added to the shopping list...
After it's made and I've enjoyed every bite,
I  will move on to,
 What in the Heck were you thinking, form of pondering.....
It's what echos from my heart today.....
good intentions gone astray, again.
....and your welcome for including the recipe.


  1. haha... the mind is so easily distracted, isn't it.
    ... & now, I feel like I need that recipe in my life - or my belly :)

  2. Love this and I'm right there with you! Just 10 minutes ago, I was Pinning how to be healthy after 50. Of course that includes information about the "menopausal muffin top".

  3. Well, my dear, after losing so much weight from the dreaded e-coli, I'll probably make brownies and fudge and cupcakes. And, even the raspberry cream cheese coffee cake, and then I'll hate myself for a day or two. LOL


  4. I have raspberries in the freezer. And I am really hungry for raspberry cream cheese coffee cake right now! :)

  5. That picture you shared is not good, especially since I just poured a cup of hot coffee:). This post made me smile, and I could totally identify with your predicament.
