Strawberry Cake

Happy Tuesday!


Finally done looking at and evaluating over 75 assignments. The one drawback in teaching an online course is you have to look at e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. not just assignments. It takes me all day! But I’m done and have completed my 6.5 hours for today. We were going to go to the pool, but it is going to storm soon.


As I mentioned before, I buy most of my fruits and vegetables from the local farm. It is strawberry season right now, so we have been eating lots of berries! On Sunday we made Beer Can Chicken, and I figured a strawberry cake would be a good dessert. It was fairly simple to make. I followed this cake recipe and just topped with whipped cream and berries. Next time I need to cut up the cake and put a layer of strawberry sauce. Otherwise it was delicious. Max loved it so much he had two pieces! Don’t worry, he finished his dinner first.






He also licked the whipped cream off the beater



So some leg news – My doctor called today and my X-ray was inconclusive, so next step is a bone scan. I have no idea when that will get done as this procedure is a “we will call you” time appointment. In the meantime, I am still just going out for some short, slow 3K runs. I did another 3K run today in 19 minutes. I did wear compression sleeves. I felt the muscles around the shin tighten a bit, but it eased up. No limping and no pain. So I don’t know…

Who likes my hot pink compression sleeves?


Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!

    Oh no for your leg! I hope you get it figured out and feel better soon. I just got some fresh strawberries so I may need to make something sweet with them!

    I hope they figure out the problem soon. The worst must be not knowing, which of course makes it impossible to make a plan as to what to do.
    I bought my first pair of compression socks recently and wore them for the Vancouver race. Loved them! But I do find them too hot when the temps are high. How do you find yours in heat?

      I don’t mind them – but I haven’t really worn them in super hot heat yet. I do want them off as soon as I’m done running.

      I’m hoping whatever is going on will be figured out today. I went for a 5K race today and the leg was fine!

    Ah, the X-ray. Sometimes great, sometimes not so helpful. I hope the bone scan ends up being normal! PS: That cake looks amaaaaazing.
