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!

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,
Andi

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. ;)
