Here it is the cake.
I found a way of downloading those pictures I took with my new camera.
My husband made me a dinner, very good, that had leek soup, a kind of beef welington ( with pork) with mashed potatoes and vegetables and ice cream for dessert.
And in the end we still had my cake: a kind of pudding my mother knows I die for.
It was such a good night. The problem with all that so good food was, in the end I was so full.
Never mind, it's everyday that we have our birthday!

On the 22 October it was one of my girl's birthday, as I posted before, and on the 24 was mine.
I wanted to post here a picture of the cake and all but I couldn't find a way of transfering the pictues to my computer because I have a new camera!
Yes, my husband gave me as one of the presents. The other one is perfectly good but he wanted to give me one more advanced. The problem is I was so used to the other one that now I don't know, yet, to do some things as putting all the photos in the computer.
Never mind. I will show you the ones taken with the old one.
That's hubby's hand here.
I don't dare to show my face. When I see me in the mirror, I don't dislike it and accept very well the signs of the time but when somebody takes a picture of me it's so depressing. I was looking at some my husband took and I couldn't stop thinking to myself: who is this old woman? And I felt a bit sorry for my husband who married a pretty girl and now have this fat and old thing.
Well, I must say to myself that the image in the mirror is the true one, not the ones in the pictures.
Don't think now that I have a low self estime. I quite like me , with all my good and bed things - in my own opinion, more good than bed. It's just I have a very bad relationship with the camera when it comes to my face. I think I'm never well enough.
Sorry about this, I just needed to talk. Maybe someone who reads my blog can feel the same and understand.
Now, here they are some presents I had, given by my mother: a rose plant, a nightie ( it's so pretty, isn't it?)
a big birthay cake, my favorite, here still inside the box, and a Christmas towel.
My mother knows how I'm crazy for Christmas.

as it was spring or summer
but we can see the fallen leaves everywhere.
The temperature has been quite high. Now is going a bit better and pleasent.
We were dreaming with the rain and it came.
Now, in this moment, we are having strong clouds and a bit of sun. Yesterday it rained so much that today we are waiting for more.
Most people dont'l like the rain but I like it so much.
So, I'm happy in this departement.
For Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer.

Here we are now feeling the Autumn arriving and, if it's not as obvious as in other countries more at the North, even so we can see the sins.
For instance, this tree of diospiros at Monserrate.
First of all, I must say that, translating on google, the answer for diospiros was kakis. I don't know if it's true. I must ask my husband.
Anyway, previous saturday, we went to the garden of Monserrate - more pictures in my blog Sintra, Glorious Eden - and again, this saturday we went there.
First most leaves of that tree were green, now most of them are brown.
Amazing how they changed in a week.
It's time to be cozy in the sofa with a throw - ah, I like that - and eat apple pie, which my husband already made.
I quite prefer the apple crumble and I'm planning to make it soon.
That amazing how, in all the blogosphere, people are feeling the same need of baking.
More news about it soon.
