This picture is from yesterday (Tuesday) morning. Marion, one of my neighbours, came along to ask for our gardener’s phone number. Peter gave her the number. I showed Marion in the computer the photos that we had taken on Monday morning at the lake.

Here is another photo that I tried to shoot with my camera from the computer screen. It shows part of that beautiful playground near the lake.

Marion asked me whether I still felt to be in a celebratory mood. “Very much so,” was my reply. Tuesday morning was a lovely morning: Wonderful sunshine, the air felt balmy. When Marion arrived we had already finished our morning tea outside in front of the house.

A little bit of Sunday's ice-ream cake was still left. Peter and I  enjoyed this before we had our cup of tea.

Sitting outside in the sun I decided I would wear this hat.

I had tried the hat on in the bathroom to see what it looked like.

Before I got dressed I had taken another picture in the bathroom. My aim was to take a picture of the flowers when I noticed I could also be seen in the mirror!

So I stepped back - but surprise, surprise: the mirror did still catch me!

Later I took a picture stepping back a bit – but surprise, surprise: the mirror did still catch me!

Looking through my birthday cards again I felt like I wanted to take a picture of them.

These are the names of the ladies who gave me these beautiful flowers. Joan came a bit later after work. Her name is missing on the card. Anyhow these are the flowers I received from the ladies on Monday. Aren’t they beautiful?

So Tuesday morning I went around enjoying all the flowers. I kept shifting them to different places and took  pictures of them from different angles. I just love taking pictures of beautiful things!

Here is this week’s TIME magazine. On page 14 it says:

ON A HUMID MID-SEPTEMBER NIGHT,
SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY
ARRIVED AT THE ROYAL PALACE ON SAUDI
ARABIA’S RED SEA COAST TO BEG
THE FAVOR OF A KING

The writer of this article says that Abdula bin Abdulazis is perhaps the most powerful man in the Middle East.

It is said in this article that the U.S. has built a fragile web of alliances to fight ISIS.
The question is being asked: WILL THIS SHAKY GROUP OF PARTNERS HOLD?

I, Uta, ask myself, how can we as ordinary citizens possibly grasp all the complications? It’s of no use working myself up, right? But I still want to know as much as possible where we are at at present.

Back to my flowers. Here is another glance at them:

      Nein, Gislinde, war nicht viel Arbeit für mich. Die Gäste kamen nur zum Nachmittags Kaffee. Caroline und Peter sahen nach der Küche und besorgten das Einschenken während ich wie die Königing mit meinen Gästen am Tisch sass! Wie du siehst, bin ich ordentlich verwöhnt worden und die vielen Blumengeschenke machten mich sehr glücklich. Es war ein ganz besonderer Geburtstag der sich über mehrere Tage erstreckte. Nun bin ich offiziel im fortgeschrittenen Alter. Hat aber auch seine guten Seiten, finde ich. Hab vielen Dank für deine lieben Glückwünsche, liebe Gislinde. Herzliche Grüsse, Uta. 🙂

      Well, Cat, now there is proof that I am not a vampire! He, he 🙂
