You might have noticed over the past few months that I’ve taken an interest in making and sharing videos. Mostly videos of me cooking some of my family’s favorite recipes.
I’ve enjoyed doing them for a couple of reasons. First, I get to learn some new programs and work on my video editing skills.
Second, I get to have fun with my oldest daughter who has embraced her role as my director, videographer, and even my make-up artist (darn blemishes).
When we make videos I’ll often mess up and that will get us laughing. There have been times I’ve wondered if we actually got enough good footage in between my mistakes and us cutting up… but it’s always worked out in the end.
It’s good to laugh… and it’s good to share a laugh with others! So I thought I’d put together a video of some of the funniest bloopers, outtakes, and behind the scenes moments from our recent efforts. You can see it below. I hope it makes you smile and gives you a laugh or two.
I also thought I’d use this opportunity to share a Bible verse that touches on the topic of happiness and laughter; Proverbs 17:22 MSG.
A cheerful disposition is good for your health;
gloom and doom leave you bone-tired.
Food, television, music… what made my list favorite things this month? Read on and find out!
What I’m Into Right Now – February 2018
Cara Cara Oranges – I like oranges but these are my favorite. They’re sweet and juicy. The peel is fairly thick so I’ve figured out the best way to eat one is to cut it up into slices.
Beard Oil – I normally keep my beard short but this winter I decided to let it grow. It’s longer now than it’s ever been but I’m doing my best to keep it looking nice. I got some beard oil for Christmas and I really like it. It keeps the hair soft and under control.
Mountain Men – Living off the grid and off the land is what this History Channel TV show is all about. It’s an interesting distraction.
From A Room: Volume 2 – Chris Stapleton’s latest album is as great as his previous albums. It’s the kind of album you can press play at the beginning and listen straight through to the end without skipping any tracks.
Spicy Candy – A while back my oldest saw some spicy Jolly Rancher candy. Knowing that I’m a fan of sriracha and spicy food she picked up a bag for me to try. Since then she’s found spicy Starbursts and spicy Skittles.
PowerDirector – I’ve been having fun making cooking videos and this is one of the Android apps that I’ve been using to create them. There are plenty of transition effects and text and picture overlay options.
Egg Sandwiches – Whenever I need a quick meal this is one of my go-to’s. My favorite variation is to use a toasted “everything” bagel, over-easy egg, pepper jack cheese, and salami.
