Anti Viral Treatment may be possible now when infected with Covid!

From last Friday to yesterday, 10th of July, 2022, Caroline and Matthew were visiting me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday, Sunday, we also saw Monika and Mark, as well as Monika’s son Ryan, Ryan’s wife Ebony, and their sons Lucas and Alexander!

So, Lucas and Alexander are two of my great-grandsons. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lucas was born on the 18th of July, 2012, that is just three days after Gabriele (Gaby) had passed away.

Next Sunday the family is going to meet for lunch at the German Club. And in one week, on Monday, Lucas is going to be ten! ๐Ÿ™‚

As I mentioned probably already in another post, I am going to turn 88 on the 21st of September this year! ๐Ÿ™‚

And Great-Grandson Alexander is going to be 8 on the 27th of September! ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday all of us had lunch at the close-by Bowling Club. After lunch everyone came to my place where Caroline and Matthew provided afternoon coffee and cake. When the rain had stopped for a while Ryan and a few others went outside to beautify my backyard. They did a very good job at that! ๐Ÿ™‚

Matthew stayed inside and played with Lucas and Alexander. He is very good with the kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

Caroline did the dishes with a little bit of help from me. Mark was a bit crook because of some very bad Osteo Arthritis. For my birthday this year the family wants to meet at our special Sussex Inlet Holiday place again the same as in 2014 when I turned 80! ๐Ÿ™‚

On Friday night, soon after our arrival, we already did have a barbecue with all the family. On Sunday Matthew and Caroline cooked lunch for us. Sunday was a rainy day. This is why it would not have been such a good idea to carry all the supplies for lunch to the barbecue area. It was decided to have lunch on our verandah. Our family had rented four units. They were all next to each other. From every unit a table was carried to our verandah. And everyone carried their own plate, drinks and cutlery from their unit to the tables on our verandah. We had been sixteen people. But Mark had to leave early. Soon after it turned out that four of the young people could not stay for lunch either. In the end we were ‘only’ eleven people, including two year old Lucas’.

Saturday night was card game night in one of the units. Expecting Ebony and Lucas needed a rest and went to bed early. Eight people were playing cards, always four at a time. The rest were just watching.

After the card games we asked everyone over to our unit for some drinks of sparkling wine. We had a few bottles of this and Caroline poured the sparkling wine into these blue wine glasses. We were able to use the glasses from all the different units. I mentioned that I was looking forward to my approaching birthday. I actually sang a song about my approaching birthday which may have impressed a few people!! Ha,ha. Anyhow, I was in a cheerful mood.

Here is the song (the German version);

Ich freue mich, dass ich geboren bin
und hab Geburtstag bald.
Man hat mich lieb
und schenkt mir viel,
zum Essen, Trinken und zum Spiel.
Ich freue mich, dass ich geboren bin
und hab Geburtstag bald.

The following day, Sunday, after lunch all the units had to be cleaned before we could leave. Some people were still cleaning while others were waiting outside. Here I am with the group of people who were waiting.

Ryan had come with a van and could take in it all of our stuff that did not fit into our car.

    1. Lovely! Happy birthday! Th epics of the animals are great too. Being from the States, I love pics of kangaroos, and that lovely bird.
    2. Fondly,

      2. Yes, thank you Elizabeth. My 80th birthday is coming up in one month. In the meantime we might have another addition to the family. Ebony is very close to giving birth. Three of our granddaughters now have to cope with the death of their paternal grandmother. She died in hospital at the beginning of this week. We are all going to her funeral.
        So long, Uta

      4. Indeed we had a great time, even though the weather wanted to spoil it. But is winter and often in August we are getting those onshore winds that bring rain. It was good to connect again with mother nature. It could have been the last time we experienced this beautiful part of the country.

      2. Maybe the last time we could go there, but maybe not the last time. You never know what is still in store for us! 
        Thanks for commenting, Berlioz.
