blackberry macaroon tart muffin 5I come bearing muffins in an attempt to apologize for my absence.  Sorry!

If any muffin is going to make up for my utter scheduling woes and my pure laziness when I did have free time these are the ones to do it.blackberry macaroon tart muffin 3

We could solve some real world problems with these muffins.  You will definitely have some nation building happening, you know if muffins are served during those sorts of things.  They should be if they are not if you ask me but no one has asked so we will just have to enjoy them. What?

blackberries

They are a muffin, they are a macaroon, they are a tart, they are amazing!

But back to my disappearance.  You already know I joined roller derby and am flat-out obsessed.  It kicks my tush and I love it.  I was driving 2 hours away once a week to get to practice and it really was having an exhausting effect for the rest of my week.  With summer season coming the drive was going to only get worse.  I was torn, I just found this amazing sport that I’m loving but I can’t be a zombie for the rest of my week. Folks, I was bummin’.

Well luck would have it, right around the time I started roller derby some ladies right here on the Cape were trying to start a league, I met them for some open skates and well the practical thing occurred.  I talk to my other league about the distance and I ended up joining the Cape league. YAY Salty Dolls!  What?

We are all just starting out but we are determined to make this happen plus I love that I can be in a league and fundraise and all that jazz in the community I live in.  Sure we don’t have a roller rink and are currently using a melted ice rink so we have some hurdles to get through but we are having so much fun along the way.  If you happen to know anyone who wants to build and own a roller rink on Cape Cod there are some ladies who would be ever grateful, I’m looking at you Bill Murray.

apple tart

Short on time?

Out of patience?

Got a couple of apples?

How about the desire to eat something yummy with your coffee? Tea?

Tired a sacrificing quality because it’s a mad, mad, mad rushed world?

Does this sound infomercialish?

Is infomercialish a word?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, wait.  Should you have answered no?

I’ve confused myself, it’s not difficult to do.

vanilla cupcakes

I wish that I could own an apple orchard right by the ocean.

I wish that my outfits were all styled from the 1940’s and each had a smart little hat to go with them and of course were practical.

I wish I could figure out a haircut that worked for me and it wasn’t so uncomfortable for me to get said haircuts.  To my hairstylist, I apologize for my lack of social skills and zero ability to make casual conversation and that our time together is agonizing silence.

I wish I could roller skate everywhere.

I wish I could never worry about money and bills and adult like stuff and could just spend my days cooking and baking and playing with dogs and my photography.  All while roller skating!

I wish I could master the guitar.  It’s not happening.

I wish I could live in a lighthouse.  A lighthouse on an apple orchard overlooking the ocean.

I wish I was as wonderful a person as my grandma was and will always be in my heart.

I wish I could bake and cook like she did.

vanilla cupcake batter

I wish that I could always be smelling fresh-baked bread.  I wish I could always be stuffing fresh-baked bread into my face.

I wish I could be an old-timey lobster boat captain.  You know, as a side job from my lighthouse, apple picking, baking/cooking, dog playing, photography, roller skating duties.

I wish and hope that my husband is up for some of these things.  I wouldn’t want to not have him with me, that’s no fun.

I wish I had a cupcake right now.  A yummy little vanilla cupcake with a sticky sweet coconuty marshmallow top!

frosting!

Well folks, we are in luck!

I’ll keep working on the others but the cupcake, that’s a go!

blueberry lemon

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.

blueberry goodness

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.

newton & blueberry lemon cake

Hi friends!

I’ve missed you.

I’ve been busy, sort of.

I’ve had a bit of a change to my schedule that I’m still working out and that has made me a bit out of sorts.

It’s all worth it..I think.  I’m being bold and brave.  The whole purpose of this blog so I’m sure you understand.

But I have missed you.

I made you (and my husband who is my biggest supporter..swoon!) a cake.

As you can tell it is beagle approved.  I’ll post the recipe real soon.

Do you see him?

Just waiting for his moment to pounce…bad beagle.

Thanks for all the kindness.

Have a fantastic day!
