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.

"Piece of cake."
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!
