White chocolate cake like a surprise
I really must say how grateful I am for receiving your comments and for Lewis´s help.
The temperatures are cooling off. It is only 22°C in the warmest part of the day. The sky is clody. There is a rainy weather today.
It is only one night and Csilla will be at home. I am getting more and more nervous. I have a few butterflies in my stomach again about Csilla flying. I hope that the authorities will be on hight alert.
In the morning I had a visitor. My father came over and I entertained him for lunch. After that we had a nice conversation over a cup of coffee. He lives not far from us in other village. It takes 15 minutes by car to get there. It is so extremely good to live close to family. He lives together with my younger brother, his wife and son. My father is doing well. He is 66 years old and he is retired. He has a garden with fruit trees and he raises animals: rabbits, pigs, chicken for own use and for us too. He brought me lots of fresh eggs so I will be able to cake Csilla´s favourite white chocolate cake tomorrow. It will be a surprise for her. I can let the cat out of the bag because I am sure, she will not be online until tomorrow.
We also have quite a big garden where we always have some work but we /my huband and I/ have green fingers. In this garden we have small vegetable pots . There is an orchard in the back of the garden. Around the house there is grass everywhere. I have a small rockery and lots of different flowers. Our garden is very nice mainly in the spring when the trees are in blossom and the flowers are colorful. I can pick fresh fruit end vegetable from our garden. During the summer I canned lots of cucumbers, green beans, peaches, apricots, nectarines and so on. I also made jam from apricots and strawberries.It saves money and it tastes better.
My son likes helping less around the house. He does the work but he always grumbles.
About one and a half week ago my son noticed that he runs out of his pocket money. My husband will offer payment to him if he fell trees in the garden. We have three apricot trees, one cherry tree and one sour cherry tree which are dried. He have to root out them, so it is quite a hard row to hoe. He started to work with a big ardor. In the afternoon he had some water blisters on his flat of the hand. In the evening he was so tired that he went to bed very early and slept like a log. Since then he has dug out three trees and our digger is broken. Now we have to buy a new one. Is it a good idea to offer payment to children for help? What do you think?
Best wishes! Have a nice weekend!
