Üüüüüberraschung! / Surprise!
Well, it didn't work perfect to surprise this sweet little boy at his birthday. Because some hints slipped out of someones mouth without having willed it. *LoL* But it is really difficult to keep the mouth shut for a year, I really can understand that mummy. Last Sunday we celebrated my father 70th birthday and we had in mind to surprise him with the small party.
It is hard to believe that between this photo and today lay about 65 years. And I can remember, that my brother and I were allowed to splash in this little washtub too on hot summerdays at my grandmothers.
Smile... and when I feel today's temperature I really would love to squeeze myself into this washtub now, but I guess this wouldn't look as sweet as it did when my father did it as a boy.
Wasn't it just a perfect day for a party?
The saying "When angels travel the heavens laugh" seems to be true *smile*.
The familiy who owns that farm hires it on weekends for small parties.
The family even cooks for small groups like us. The only minus point was that the weather was so hot, that I wasn't at all hungry. It was a pity for all those delicious things they cooked. But of course my appetite returned at the dessert buffet. How could I resist chocolate mousse, Caramel cream, Meringue, Vanilla Ice Creams with hot berries and delicious cookies. I just had to taste everything. :o)
Okay, he preferred dandelion instead of the dessert buffet. At the farm were donkey, chickens, geese, rabbits, goats, a cat and a dog living. To say it short: I felt at home.
It was a wonderful day but of course it went by much too fast. I made blueberry muffins as decoration. Unfortunately I had to freeze them because at the morning of the party I had no time for baking. While defrosting they got a bit soggy at the ground but hey, I loved them anyway. Nothing sweet is safe from me. It has something to do with gene, I've got it from my dad... it is really not my fault... honestly! :o)
So, Ihr Lieben, das war's auch schon wieder, denn bei den tropischen Temperaturen sitze ich nicht gerne vor dem PC. Gut, man könnte jetzt ein Becken mit kalten Wasser unter den Tisch stellen, Füsse reinhalten, Augen schliessen und sich vorstellen man wäre am Meer. Aber das ist mir zu viel Schönfärberei... es ist einfach zu heiss. Punkt, aus, fertig. :o)
So, this was it for now because it is much to hot for sitting at the computer. Well, I could put a bowl of cold water under the desk, put my feet in it, close my eyes and make myself believe to sit somewhere at the sea... but that would be too much of a trouble. It's just too hot.
Habt es fein und hoffendlich immer ein Glacé in Reichweite.
Have a great time with always an ice cream in reach.
