Tiny Picspam!  
See? I promised to be around more often..hehe.

In my last entry I told you that we made cherry jam and that I had to climb on trees to get them, right?

Well, here are some impressions of what I did..I don´t have pics about myself sitting in a tree though, bc a) it´s pretty difficult to make some pics when you´re holding the cell in one hand and trying to hold onto a tree branch with the other...and nope, I couldn´t make my Dad understand how to work my cellphone-camera..he already has problems finding the right buttons on his remote control! LOL

Anyway...nice pics ahead!! (plus, two pictures show the birthday cake we made for my Dad today, it´s a "Schwarzwälder-Kirschtorte" hmm don´t know if it´s translated into Black Forest Cherry cake, but it´s the best I can deliver! *gg*)
Edit: got told that it´s either called Black Forest Cherry layer cake or Black Forest Cherry Gateaux. Thanks for the heads-up!! <33

See that ladder? I went all the way up! Loved it, allthough it had been a little windy..sometimes the ladder would´ve creaked and given way a little bit..but it was safe all the time! :)

Overview from ontop of the ladder..could´ve spend all day up there!

Hmm..too bad the bigger tree branch had been so straight..I wanted to go up there bc there were more beautiful cherries!

See what I mean? *sigh* Well, at least that way the birds are having some nice cherries too! ;)

View all the way back down the ladder..sorry that it´s so blurry!
looking back down

Halftime! At the end I had a full bucket with yummy (wormfree) cherries!

Did the same thing with the sour cherries..the tree hadn´t been that high, so I managed to climb up without a ladder..sorry, no pics there though! :(

Finally, the cake (especially for angels_cordy ):

I know it isn´t the most perfect cake ever, but it´s soooo yummy!!!

And last but not least...there´s actually a Ford Mustang in my town!!!! SQUEEEEE!! It´s not as cherry red as War´s *points at icon*, it´s more of an orange-red, but still...a MUSTANG!!! *dies* I got to drive behind it for a while, so sadly, no pics! But I´ll try to find the car again..hehehe..I need pictures of that beauty!!!

And now I´m off. Need to clean up. (again!) Yesterday I had to clean up my closet...buying new clothes isn´t wise when you actually don´t have space for them! LOL I managed to put away some old and torn clothes, and now I´m considering of throwing more old stuff out..maybe I´ll give some things to the flea market...I´m so pathetic when it comes to my toys from back when I was a child..can´t throw them away allthough I KNOW I won´t ever need them again..but still...*sigh*
Okay..I´m really off now..*grin*

Peace, love and music,

Oh, that is a pretty cherry tree! I had climb into that of my ex's parents once myself. I like climbing trees. :D

I think it's Black Forrest Cherry Layer Cake. The 'Layer' makes all the difference. *lol* And it looks really delicious even though I'm not a fan of layer cakes.

It´s the tree of one of my dad´s friends...since he doesn´t need all of them, he was willing to share! :)
And I LOVE climbing trees! There´s a huge "Lindenbaum" at my uncle´s farm..I love to sit up there and be all alone, watching people from afar, without being seen myself..*gg*

Oh..okay! Thanks for the info! I´ll change it in a second! I have to admit, I´m a fan of almost every cake..I´m not that picky if it comes to cakes..LOL

I wish I had a tree I could climb. It's been years that I climbed a tree!

I like fruit cake. Just plain fruit cake and there especially apple crumble. Mmmm. ;)

Cherries! My favorite fruit! I wish I had a cherry tree in my garden! But I just have pear (which i don't like at all) and a peach tree!
It seems you enjoyed your time up there and baking for your father! It's good to know after your last post.
Und unbekannterweise "Joyeux Anniversaire* zu deinem Vater.

Your favourite fruit? Really? Awesome! I like strawberry best, but I also love every other fruit too..*gg* Pears!! YAY! Compott, cake, or pear halfes filled with currants..yummy!!
Peaches!! OMG I love peaches!! (see? I love all of them..LOL)

I did enjoy it, allthough I´m not completely over the things that had happened...
*padahug back*

Thank you! And, just to give you an impression who you are wishing Joyeux Anniversaire:

Yay - great pics! ... Looks like a lovely cake (I think it's what we call a Black Forest Gateaux)

I am also having to sort out clothes - I have decided not to pack the clothes I know don't fit!!
Andrea: Hawaii-five-0: Alohalupina78 on June 18th, 2011 01:33 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! Oh thanks for the info! Will edit it in a minute!

Oh my..I don´t even want to know how much work it must be to pack your whole household!! I only had to tidy up my closet and with all those clothes thrown around in my bedroom I felt completely overwhelmed! Hopefully you are way more organized than I am!
Sorting out clothes you don´t wear anymore is a good thing to do, so you don´t have to move unused things anymore...good luck with sorting out!! (also, I´m hoping you´re way better in deciding than I am..I always end up keeping things I originally wanted to throw away! LOL

I am such a hoarder that I have so much stuff ... and some of it is junk. However how much will actually end up being thrown is a different question - LOL. It makes it easier that I know I'm moving to a smaller place - so have to be (a bit) ruthless!!
Andrea: H50: Who? What are you? An Owl?lupina78 on June 18th, 2011 01:53 pm (UTC)
Oy..you´re moving into a smaller place? That´s even harder to decide what to take with you and what not! I´m not envying you for having to make those decisions!!
I´m hoarding like crazy too!! For example, more than 10 years ago, I threw out my old carpet in order to get a new fancy laminate floor. Of course I had to throw away the carpet but before it landed in the trash, I cut a tiny piece out of it so I have a memorabilia kind of thing (from my CARPET!!! LOL)
I highly agree with you..planning to throw something away isn´t the same thing as actually doing it! *rofl* But I guess, this has to happen from time to time, since the place we live in doesn´t grow unlike our possessions do..*sigh*

Wir waren gestern in Kitzeck und haben auch Kirschen von nem Baum geklaut^^
Andrea: HAWAII landscapelupina78 on June 18th, 2011 06:16 pm (UTC)
Hehe..cool! Kitzeck ist schön, gell?

Zum Glück hab ich nicht so weit fahren müssen um Kirschen zu kriegen..*gg*

Wie gehts mit den Hochzeitsvorbereitungen? Alles unter Dach und Fach?
Sandraamelia_307 on June 18th, 2011 06:26 pm (UTC)
Ja, Kitzeck ist total schön. Meine Eltern haben die NachTbarn zu einem Kurztrip dorthin eingeladen und wir sind auch eine Nacht dort gewesen.

Ich warte ganz ungeduldig auf mein Kleid, das sollte schon seit 2 Wochen da sein, aber es gibt Verzögerungen. Aber gsd. muss nicht viel geändert werden.
Und ich bin auf der Suche nach Schuhen, was gar nicht so einfach ist, wie gedacht. Wir überlegen auch noch, wie wir den Ablauf der Trauung gestalten wollen (Musik, Texte, usw...), aber abgesehen davon ist gsd. das meiste erledigt. Unsere Ringe müssten wir auch in den nächsten Tagen bekommen.

Hey, das klingt ja schon recht vielversprechend! Ihr habt ja zum Glück noch etwas Zeit. Das klappt schon alles noch. :) Ich hoffe doch, wir werden ein paar Fotos zu sehen bekommen! ;)
Und ich wünsch euch natürlich supergeniales, nicht zu heißes Wetter, aber das versteht sich ja fast schon von selbst. *gg*

Awww, I have the most perfect cake in the world!! *pets herself* ;D

OH MY! Sitting in that sweet ride would make my life (almost) perfect...I wouldn´t wanna drive it though...no way I´m able to control that huge ship! And let´s not forget how much gas a Classic Car like that needs...20 liters or so? LOL But it´s such a great great great looking car! *sigh*

Gorgeous cherries!!!! I was on vacations in my Dad's hometown and we also had cherries, and sooo many!! But our trees aren't as tall as that one :))))) I love climbing trees :D Now I need to think of something to do with all these cherries we have...

Oh and yummy cake!!! It looks absolutely delicious!!!! It's perfect the way it is and it was made with love and that's what matters :))))

Love *squishes you*
