Beautiful Danger

Monday is my designated grocery store day, so off to HEB I headed after I took Bo for a short run. Summer opted to go with me again this week which I have found to be helpful lately. When she was younger she wanted to go with me and her help usually hindered me. Now that's she's older and can properly read a list and push a heavy cart around I can cut a good 15 to 20 minutes off my trip.

Before we got to the store I had to drop off some stuff  to Toby at work. About 100 feet before the turn in to his building I spotted a bill being whipped around by the wind in front of my car. I couldn't tell if it was a 1, 5, 10, or even if it may been $100, but it was definitely cash.

The area where I spotted it is heavily trafficked and is also an exit area from I-35. As the passing thought of pulling over to chase the bill and risk getting ran over entered my mind, I noticed someone else had already  beat me to the idea and was pulled off on the shoulder eyeballing it. Good Luck to them as all I thought. I would hate to know that I had risked my life for a measly dollar...but then again risking my life for $100 wouldn't have been so bad.

As far the rest of the day, I spent it making a cake I saw on Pinterest. I know, as if I needed cake but I had some Greek Yogurt that was 2 days past expiration and if it didn't get used it was going to be wasted...I don't eat yogurt plain so that was not an option. I added the yogurt to the Devil's Food cake mix in replacement of the eggs and oil as directed and baked away. It turned out delicious. I also whipped up some butter cream frosting for the top...I KNOW, I KNOW I didn't need to add the frosting either. Hopefully Toby and Summer will eat the bulk of it like usual.

I'm not sure how I will spend the rest of my evening. Most likely trying to figure out how we are going to spend our week in this beautiful weather we have been having.

  1. We had a beautiful day here, too. But the temp has dropped to the 20's again and I have a fire going. Good call on the yogurt, you cannot waste it!!
