One photo every day: Birthday Cake (356/365)

in onephotoeveryday •  5 months ago

Hello again!

Today was my 42nd birthday, and I wanted to share with you the lemon-strawberry cake my wife Vera lovingly baked for me!

I slept quite late today, it being my birthday Vera didn't want to wake me up until Miro brought a friend of his to visit.

She also asked what I'd like us to eat for dinner and I came up with the idea we'd eat some rainbow trout baked in sour cream and cream cheese, spiced with dill and black pepper.

What happened in Jyväskylä?

Yesterday, Leo took off to visit grandparents in Tikkakoski, Jyväskylä, some 200 km north from Lahti. Today, as he was sending me his birthday wishes, he also mentioned their grandpa Esa had been taken to the hospital to treat a bad nosebleed. That's not good news, I thought...

Later today, I got a call from my mother-in-law telling me Esa has been taken in as a patient, and that they suspect a tumor. It's just that they can check on it on Monday at earliest.

This came as a small shock, as not only had Esa and Leo planned on going to see the 100th birthday celebrations and flying show of the Finnish Air-Force on Sunday, I had some plans of my own regarding to going to the gym today. It's also needless to say but Leo will have to cut his visit kind of short this time. Well, I called my father, and he told me I could have Leo visit them a little earlier than midsummer fest instead.

I am now going to fetch Leo back tomorrow, but will take him to see the Airshow first in the morning. That means I need to get to bed really early today so I can be sharp at sunrise, so I can drive there in time.

Anyh00, I'd like to take this evening easy and then get some sleep. I've got another long drive ahead of me tomorrow morning. But I'll be taking my camera along, and will hopefully get to shoot some photos at the airshow.

See you then!

Happy birth day @gamer00 wish you all the best

That’s a really gorgeous birthday cake which is full of love! Vera is very special!!

I do hope that the nose breed is not caused by tumour. Old people normally have very thin veins which can break out easily!!
He should reduce his sugar intake! My dad used to have his vein broken inside his legs! He had diabetics!

The months of July and August are going to be quite demanding and full of unexpected changes for everyone on different levels , depending on their karmas.

Try to keep cool and be flexible to adapt to the demands of those waves!!
You are a very angelic person and your Guardian Angel will look after you!!

All the best!
Your friend.

First of all I wish you a happy birthday! You made amazing photography of this b'dy cake and it looks delicious.
Second, I wish get well soon for Leo's grand parents.

@gamer00 - Sir Happy Birth Day & I hope Esa (Leo's grand father) will be okay soon Sir... The birthday cake is so lovely Sir...


Very happy birthday buddy. Sorry I'm late. So sorry to hear about Esa. The photos of the cake are awesome, makes me want to take a bite. Hope you had a good day bud


Esa is fine, he got out of the hospital today, as they finally found a specialist who got his nose fixed and concluded it wasn't a tumor. :) It's a relief really, everyone was so worried.


That is very good to hear. Super cool when things turn out well.


I'm glad to hear that. Will you return home any time this week?


Already home, I drove back after the visit to the air show.


Alright! Wednesday is the day after tomorrow. I suggest the Go club meet again at the harbour in the usual place. The weather will be windy but sunny and reasonably warm: between 21 C and 17 C during the club meeting.

Congratulations and I'll guess I'll see you tomorrow, with about 10000 other people :D


The odds for actually seeing me there, well. ;)

Just got a message from Leo that his grandpa has now been treated and will be getting home tomorrow. Now it seems I lost the actual reason for going there, but I might do it anyway just for the airshow, and if for some reason Esa is feeling too tired to take Leo there, I should probably come as a backup.

But it does mean i'll be doing a lot of driving just to see him for a day.

WOW. Happy birthday. That cake looks fantastic. Thanks for the invite. Please send the recipe as I have a sweet tooth as well. Maybe I won't bake it but get someone to make me one. Have fun and relax and keep your self an extra slice.
