On ice… 19. January 2017

 Cashew and coconut bar

 7 grain porridge with khorasan wheat (kamut) with some added chia seeds and honey

 Baked potatoes, tomato and zucchini with some cucumber-avocado salad

 Raspberry cake and some tea

I think ice is a dangerous thing. I don’t like walking on rivers, ponds etc. that have iced over, because the ice might crack and you might fall into the icy water and die. I don’t like holes in ice where some people like to dip themselves in during winter after going to sauna, because you might get a cold shock, cramp up and drown. I also don’t like high places and think jumping down from said high places (with bungee cords or parachutes etc.) for “fun” is stupid, but that’s stretching my point I guess.

So, you can imagine how happy I was when my boyfriend told me that there might be a chance of them going on an ice track on some lake during the weekend with their enduro bikes. I looked out the window where there has been rain and warm temperatures for a week now and went: you want to go on a potentially melty ice track with a big machine that has nails on the wheels? How about no?

I know these are my fears and they are probably unreasonable, as the tracks are supposedly “official” and supervised, but this is just how far my limits go. I try to be supportive with his hobby, but ice tracks freak me out. I know he can also potentially hurt himself just riding in the woods (a point which he has proved to me several times), but at least there isn’t the risk of drowning in an icy death trap. I’ve been conflicted about this big time. On one hand, I don’t want to be the kind of restrictive girlfriend who says what he can or can not do, but at the other hand, I would be so happy if he didn’t do stupidly dangerous things that make me worry like crazy.

Bah. Men!

This happened today… 18. January 2017

 Rice cereal with milk and a cup of coffee

 Tom yum instant noodles with sour cream and a grilled chicken leg. I have been eating too much junk food again lately, should try to get myself in check again :s

 Minced meat pastry (also had a coffee)

 Cheesy veggie soup with noodles

 A chocolate éclair and some tea

I had a job interview at a cool tiny café. I think it went well 😀 They promised to contact me again next week. Keep your fingers crossed for me 🙂

Simply a good day… 17. January 2017

 Morning coffee and 7 grain porridge with khorasan wheat (kamut), some peanuts, chia seeds and blueberry jam

 Some carrots

 Unplanned café time @ Gustav Café. We shared a slice of Napoleon cake and I had a Vienna coffee.

 Sausage sandwich and some cheesy veggie (carrot, potato, zucchini, lettuce) soup with noodles

Not all good days are somehow extraordinary. Some good days are simply good because they are ridiculously ordinary. Like my day today: I slept late in the morning which was fine. When I got up, I cleaned a bit, did the dishes, did some laundry; went out for a walk and popped into my favourite second hand store (got two shirts and a book for 4.50euros) and got groceries; later in the evening accompanied my bf to town while he ran some errands and then we stopped for a bit for some cake and coffee; Got back home, made dinner, played a bit of computer games. The day was pretty ordinary, but since my last thought before falling asleep that night was: “wow, today was such a good day!” then I guess it actually must have been a really good day 🙂 Sometimes ordinary and even a bit boring is the best.

Raid and dreams and Kiki… 14-15. January 2017

14. January

 Garlic pork, fried potatoes, salad with zucchini

 A banana

 Cookies!

 Beer

It was raid night with my guild on Rift. So much inappropriate fun ♥

Also, dreams: I dreamed that I applied for a ticket seller job at Tallinn Zoo, but was terribly late for the interview, because I was looking for the main office inside the zoo, but it turned out that it was actually a few streets away from the place. It was awfully embarrassing when I finally got there and the people interviewing me were not too impressed at me keeping them waiting for over an hour. I don’t think I got the job.

15. January

 A banana, cocoa pudding and a cup of coffee

 Sushi! Mostly with salted salmon, cucumber and avocado.
(Thanks, Josie, for the photo. I was a forgetful goose and didn’t take a photo myself. Unbelievable, but sometimes that still can happen.)

 Delicious red velvet cake

Josie came for a visit and brought cake 😀 I made sushi and we watched “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” which was a charming, but silly little movie. It was a really fun day 🙂

Otherwise I was weirdly tired and sleepy the entire day. I napped for an hour before Josie arrived and when she left after the movie I fell asleep for another 2 hours. I just couldn’t stay awake for some reason.

2 random days… 12-13. January 2017

12. January

 Rice cereal with milk and a cup of coffee

 Pukupuku Tai “cookie”. It was delicious 🙂

 Noodles of frustration. I attempted to write that day and couldn’t even open the Word document again, so it all ended up in tears and cooking noodles.

 Vegetable soup (potato, carrot, cauliflower) with leafy greens and nuts/seeds

 Some assorted Tirol chocolates and a cup of tea

Dreams last night involved: My little brother ice skating and wearing a hairclip with pink roses in his hair while doing so.

13. January

 Coffee and a sausage sandwich

 Tom yum flavoured instant noodles with sour cream

 Some garlic pork, boiled potatoes with herb butter and salad with zucchini

 Tea and some Reese’s peanut butter cups that my sis brought me. I shared the  sweets with my bf.

I had a long walk during the day, then I cleaned the entire apartment and cooked dinner. I’d say it was good day.

Dreams… 11. January 2017

 Two sandwiches with chocolate spread and a persimmon

 Tea and two sausage sandwiches

 Vegetable soup (potato, carrot, cauliflower) with leafy greens and seeds

 A sausage sandwich with some leftover salad from yesterday

Dreams last night involved: Lumi’s puppies; My grandparents had built many log cabins on their property for tourists. The cabins were kind of rickety and I was afraid being in them, because they creaked and wavered; I was given a huge painting station as a gift. It had a built-in easel and drawers for painting supplies. My heart was hurting so much, because I had this amazing working place now but I had lost my ability to do any art; And all the time there was a big party happening. People occasionally went to see my dad’s motorcycle club members, who were sitting amongst themselves, to trade their Rock beers for Alexander beers.
