When do I learn that you ALWAYS have to read the labels?… 9. February 2016

 Oatmeal porridge with honey

 Matcha KitKat

 I made pea soup for dinner, because it’s a tradition to eat pea soup on Shrove Tuesday in Estonia. Unfortunately I was careless when picking out the smoked ham for the soup in the store. Instead of proper smoked ham I ended up buying fake smoked ham, which means that the “ham” is given a smoked like smell/flavour with a smoke essence :/ And the soup was inedible, because the taste of that unpleasant smoke essence overpowered everything :( Honestly, it was not pleasant at all. That’s three hours wasted on cooking that soup and not to mention the food wasted! Down the toilet the entire pot went :(

 We had no other choice than to run to the store and get some food from the readymade food court for dinner, because it was late and I didn’t feel like cooking again that night. We got some Mulk’s porridge (Potato porridge with pearl barley) and breaded friend beef slices. The food was a tad bit too salty, but still so much better than that damned pea soup. I also had a slice of toasted rye bread with cheese.

 A matcha whipped cream and azuki paste semla from Tokumaru and a cup of peppermint tea.

I was feeling awful and spent most of the day sleeping. I don’t think I’ve caught a cold as it didn’t feel anything like that… I just felt bad, like an aching pressure in my chest and head, so it was better to sleep than be awake.

Can you tell that I was not feeling good by how blurry and weird today’s food photos are?

Doing inventory… 7. February 2016

 Karelian pastry and cocoa pudding. The pastry was super salty this time :/

 Potato salad

 Instant noodles with leafy greens, garlic fried mushrooms and cherry tomatoes

 A semla and a cup of coffee

My friend works at a book store and she asked me if I’d be interested in helping them do an inventory of their store. I agreed and spent almost the entire Sunday counting books and scanning barcodes. It was much easier than I figured that doing an inventory would be, but I imagine it was much more of a hassle some years ago. This time we had hand-held barcode scanners and ipads to input the data right on the spot, so there were neither laptops/computers nor papers and pencils involved.
If I had to do this type of job all of the time, the novelty of it would probably wear off quickly, but to me it felt like a sort of job I’d enjoy doing :p But heck, ipads are heavy! xD My hands were aching by the end of the day.

ARGH… 5. February 2016

 Coffee, Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Smashables Jelly Popping Candy. Ate about half the chocolate. Was alright.

 Pumpkin-oatmeal porridge with strawberry jam

 Potato and rice soup with wakame

 Black tea and a banana

I’m not doing well with my graduation paper. I think about it constantly, I try writing… and it just doesn’t happen. It’s infuriating. There is this block or… *sigh* I know that if I did it, worked on it, it would reduce my stress levels a lot, but since I try every day and have no results to show in the evening, I simply keep increasing my stress over it. It’s driving me crazy to the point that it’s sometimes painful to even breathe.

I just want to curl up on the couch and stuff my face with bad food.

Blah :(

Sleepy… 3. February 2016

 Toast with honey, a banana and a cup of coffee

 Toast with beef ham

 Pumpkin-potato casserole with chicken and some leafy greens

 A semla with cherry jam in it

 Cranberry brownie. This was made with very dark chocolate… so it wasn’t very good to be honest. Overly dark chocolate is not for me.
