School’s out

Yesterday was quite different than I expected in January. We were supposed to have a big graduation party for middlest son but now we only had nice dinner with all of us here and it was okay too. Some of our relatives and friends are coming here on June 13th to celebrate him so it’s all right.

I did a test-cake of rhubarb and strawberry filled cake with meringue-cream icing and it turned out pretty good. I’ve never made meringue icing so it was interesting to learn that too.

Youngest son begun his summer holiday yesterday and he got good grades too. Both of them went to school to get the paper and later in the evening middlest son went to his friends house and came home in the afternoon.

As I said to Rachel we have my MIL’s old recipe booklet for pizza from the early 80’s. It’s got recipes for all kinds of pizza’s, i.e. one with liver and another with kidneys or anchovies and European cisco (fish). Eww. Here is a pic of Pizza with Sardines, the lack of other pics is due the fact the booklets didn’t have nice pics. They looked more just mushy and were not clear enough for photographing.

There’s a bonus pic of Sirius. I was reading on our balcony and she came to sleep on me. I love when she does that because our old kitty Sysi was much more reserved after being in a shelter as a small kitten and hardly ever slept on or with anyone. Sirius was born on an pony farm which had puppies born at the same time and she is a bit like a dog, i.e. she comes when you pat your knee and some other small things too.  I really loved Sysi too, don’t get me wrong, she was an awesome kitty and was very protective of our boys when they were babies but she was shy. Only when she was old (18-y-o and forward) she slept on my lap in the evenings. But as a cat-person I love being a cat-mattress.

Day 10 THE FINAL DAY

..aand I’ll give you John Porter from Strike Back origins! I’ve never watched the rest of the series because I couldn’t care less what’s happening to the other guys when John drives towards the sunset. For me he’s always somewhere in there trying to do good in a hard world. He also cleans up nicely.

There’s quite a many other fictional men too I’d have chosen for my ten crushes but this is what I thought now. Maybe some other time it’d have been other guys, who knows.

Day 9

Today I’ll give you my favorite outlaw. I’ve loved Robin Hood since little girl when I first read the novel by John Finnemore. For me he’s the ultimate hero and has nothing to do with the snivelling rat we see in BBC’s version (in which a certain Guy draws all the attention..). Also I’m not including the 80’s mullet-version of Robin (even thou I really like Kevin).

 

..and then there’s of course Robin and his merry men in Shrek..

Day 6

So yeah.. I effing love Chris Evans, I’ve watched Captain America quite many times and that’s why I decided to have old Nick Vaughn here today. The movie ’Before we go’ was also his directorial debut and it’s pretty good imo. It’s one of those movies where not actually happens a lot but still there’s a lot of things.

Oh! There’s one thing I dislike in him. His perfect teeth 😀

(..and I’m still not going to put my fics out on Ao3..)
