So I’ve been a bit scattered as of late.  I just can’t seem to get into a schedule pattern that I can maintain.

Why you ask?

Well, I’ll tell you since you seem insistent on an answer.

I’ve joined a roller derby league!  It is so much fun.

Don’t get me wrong, right now I stink.  I thought I knew how to roller skate, wrong.  I stink but that’s okay.

As Adam says, I’m learning.  So wise that one, I think I’ll keep him.

Down side, it’s two hours away. Boo!  So that means I have a marathon day once a week where I work for 10 hours, drive two hours to practice, practice for two hours, drive home for two hours and then tell Adam all about my day.  Oh this isn’t a complaint, as long as it’s fun I’ll keep doing it but I’m afraid I haven’t balanced out the rest of my week.  Things keep getting pushed back.

I don’t do all of my other exercises, meal planning is a bit off and I haven’t been able to tell you all about this cake I made.  Well bear with me.  I’m getting there. I don’t like when I don’t have a regular schedule so this little disorder should be temporary.

Meanwhile I made you this cake.  It’s lemony. It’s blueberry-ey.  I used this icing.  You should make this, it should get you in the spring state of mind.

Do you know what the upside of making your own birthday cake is?

You can try a recipe that peaked your interest way back in February but when you told your husband about it a face was made.

“Black tea icing?  I don’t know?”  he says.  “You can make it if YOU want it, maybe I’ll try a piece”  he says.  “There’s still some old off name brand ice cream sandwiches half melted then refrozen and squished in the back on the freezer I can eat if I don’t like it”  he says.

Then he gives me the other face, the sad one because we won’t be having a fancy dessert that night that he would like.

“Sigh” I said.  And in the back of my mind this recipe went, only to reemerge when my husband asked if I wanted him to make my birthday cake.   “No, thank you I can make it” I said and  I cackled wildly shouting “I will have my cake and I will eat it too.”

O.K in reality I may have not have said that last part out loud, but it was said in my head.

The wait was well worth it and fun fact, my husband had eaten a piece every night for dessert until it was all gone.  Well worth the wait indeed.

What is more perfect than tea and lemon?
