Just Jot It January – Serendipity – Day 20

#JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 20th

***

Your prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 20th is brought to you by Jill! Click here to find her last post and say hi while you’re there! Jill’s word for our prompt today is “serendipity.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!

***

Today’s Jot word is = serendipity. Thanks, Jill!

***

Serendipity = the accidental discovery of something good that you hadn’t been looking for.

***

That is a nice sounding word, a fun word to describe an unplanned wonderful surprise. There have been lots of things discovered accidentally in medicine, and technology throughout the years. In Jill’s post she mentions the microwave oven, and penicillin as two of them, and I’d seen them, too when I looked up what serendipity meant.

What are some more? Hang on a minute while I look….

These are just a very few of the accidental discoveries from the past that are still used today:

Vaseline

Potato Chips

Coca Cola

Plastic

Teflon

Velcro

Popsicles

Post-It Notes

And, as the painter, Bob Ross, says:

“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” ― Bob Ross

Escapist Coloring Club – October

Escapist Coloring Club – October

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – October 1, 2018

***

***

I seem to have missed posting my coloring pages in September, so here we are already into October.

It’s been awhile since I’ve added any more new ones, but I did finish the giraffe, and started on the lion.

I’m still using the twist up colored pencils, which I do like.

For the giraffe, I did some of the larger spots in different designs to make it look interesting. I did mess up one, though. I started doing a design that didn’t turn out very good, so I erased it, then tried to do some shading to cover up the mess up. Still looks a little wrong, but that’s how this coloring thing goes when you do what you can to be creative.

And, as Bob Ross, the painter says…

“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.”
