Chocolate Mug Cake and the Last Camping Trip

I think I just had my last camping trip for the season.  Dave will be in Moose Camp starting next weekend until the end of September, and come October, it may be too cold.  So, I enjoyed the morning and evening campfires, went on a couple 4 wheeler rides, soaked in the view, and batted away the gnats that were everywhere!

It was also the weekend for 4-wheeler accidents.  Dave and I went out to get some firewood.  Mooree was running with Dave and I was a couple minutes behind.  I was about to turn off the trail to where the wood was and Mooree ran right in front of me.  I turned and hit a big hole, and the 4-wheeler went over.  I pushed off the wheeler, so it wouldn't land on me, and landed hard.  Dave had to turn my wheeler over by himself and drive me back to camp.  I took some good anti-inflammatory and had a nap, thinking I had messed up my fake hip.  Luckily, the meds worked and I limped around the rest of the day but no real damage.  I was thanking my lucky stars it wasn't worse. I did have a sore hip the rest of the weekend but Motrin and a couple dirty martinis helped.

And now that I'm home, chocolate cake helps.  I'm trying to keep that leg stretched, but not get it sore and a trip to the microwave to bake this little puppy up is just the medicine I need!  Chocolate helps everything.
