I am pooped! It was a great weekend, but also a weekend of being up very late, and waking up very early! Bad combo!
I woke up bright and early on Saturday to head into Belleville for the Art Show, which was a wonderful day. The sun was shining, the atmosphere was buzzing, I sold some paintings, baking goodies, and antique windows turned into chalkboards, as well as some of my antique dishware pieces (cookies trays, cake stands and bird feeders).
Then, after rushing home from the show, the hubby and I headed to a wedding in Madoc which was a blast. We didn't really know anyone there, but we quickly made friends and had a great time! The food was great (catered by some people we did know, but hadn't seen in a while!), the night was great, and we felt honoured to have been invited!
Sunday morning we headed back to Madoc early-ish to meet up with some friends we hadn't seen in a (waaaay too) long time!!! We had a great breakfast, and a bit of a catch-up, then rushed into Belleville for church (kinda late...). After church and running our usual errands, we got home, un-loaded the groceries, and went back into Tweed for a Feast From Farm thing that was going on. Local peeps with their local goods, music and games (Caleb won a pumpkin), and a nice sunny afternoon made this a pleasant event for the fam!
After that we went back home, had some dinner, and got a few things done like lunch packing and doing the (barn) chores. Then, right at bedtime some friends stopped in....and we all stayed up (even all the children) until about 11-ish! After they left, hubster and I wanted a wee bit of time to ourselves, so we stayed up until midnight eating Jelly Belly's (my treat day!) and watching Arrested Development.
This morning we were up and getting the kids out the door for school (all of them looking a tiny bit zombie-ish!). After they got on the bus I went for a nice walk, and now I'm just trying to jump-start my system with some coffee!
Phew, that's the end of the story about my weekend, and why I feel so tired today!!! :)
Soooo, another paleo mug cake!!! This one requires more effort than usual, but I was a-hankerin' for a salted caramel something, but didn't want to make a huge event out of it! So, this cake emerged from the mad-scientist lab known as my kitchen, and if you have a micro-wave, you will want to make this! If you don't have a micro-wave, you could make it in the oven, though turning the oven on for this seems wasteful. So, maybe use a toaster oven, or even your bbq! Worst case scenario, just make the caramel and eat it strait up. :)

For the cake:
Even though this cake takes more effort than a usual mug-cake, it is 100% worth it! Maybe even 150% worth it!
Well, I hope Monday shapes up well for you, dearest reader!
I'm feeling like a nap is seriously in order or else I won't make it through this day! Well, I might make it through, but I sure would be grumpy! Thumbs down to being grumpy!
