Pet all the puppies!… 10. October 2017

 A quark pastry, a wiener pastry and a cup of coffee.

 Pasta carbonara with some cherry tomatoes.

 Skyr with honey.

 Rice with tuna, tomatoes, sour cream and wasabi-sesame spice.

There are amazing pros and cons to working in a café. The pros are that we have a pet friendly establishment, so I get to pet a lot of cute dogs and an occasional ferret among other critters. No one has sadly brought their cat yet.

The cons are occasional unsavoury customers. For instance, this time a very drunken and smelly Russian guy first bothered women in the bus stop in front of our café, then came inside and attempted to bother my female customers. I told him to stop and managed to keep him away from my clients, but then he started professing his love to me over the counter. I played dumb, told him that I hardly understood what he was saying and invited our tall male chef to come and translate for me. The drunken guy didn’t seem to like that xD Ugh, I was so relieved when we finally got him to leave.

Fancy coffee time… 6. October 2017

 A quark pastry

 Farmi Kreeka Kohuke. A vanilla kohuke with Greek yoghurt. It was creamy and good.

 I had late lunch and some coffee with Marit @ The Living Room Café. We started with some pita bread and hummus. Yum!

 My lovely lunch date ❤

 I had a bacon beef burger with some tortilla chips. It was yummy!

 A banana

 Indian style curry with beef, champignons and cashews, served with rice and some salad.

At the lake… 24. September 2017

 Coffee and several sandwiches with butter and honey

 Porridge

 Leftover chicken and veggies from the day before, some sült and tomato-cucumber salad

 Coffee and a breakfast burrito (egg, bacon, potatoes) I shared with my bf

In the morning we helped Agu and Liia to set up a new corral for their cows and then move them to their new corral. Afterwards we went down to a lake. The others went out on a boat and tried to catch some fish. I stayed on the bridge, because I don’t feel comfortable with people swishing around fishing hooks near me :p It was so nice, warm and calm. It was such a shame we had to drive back to Tallinn. I would have loved to have spent another couple of days at the country side.

 There was water in the boat

 Sunlight

 Spiderwebs

 A water lily

 People fishing :p

 Forest magic

 Grasshopper on a log

Rough day… 18. September 2017

 Cranberry kohuke

 Two bacon and cheese pastries straight out of the oven

 Miso soup @ Tokumaru

 Chicken katsu curry. I felt upset and tired after my doctor’s appointment, so I decided to treat myself to something nice. This truly hit the spot.

 Salad with lamb’s lettuce

 Potato and minced meat stew with sour cream

I went and opened the café before my doctor’s appointment in the morning. Then I had the appointment which was… difficult. So, after I had run a few more errands, I treated myself to some nice food and then went home to sleep. The evening was quite a lot more tolerable after my long nap. Sometimes nice food and sleeping the day away are just the answers you need.

Jam, jam, making jam… 11. September 2017

 Rye bread with butter and coffee for breakfast

 I spent most of the day cleaning the lingonberries Loviise picked for me.

 Then I set a jarful of lingonberry kvass to ferment. Going to be an interesting experiment for sure. The yellow glob in the bottom is honey.

 Rye cereal with honey and milk for lunch

 After that I made lingonberry-apple jam.

 A luscious chanterelle beef burger from Diner. OMG HEAVENNNN! I had planned to make dinner at home, even bought the ingredients, but since my stove is tiny and the bubbling jam pot was big, I had no room on the stove for anything else. Thus, the take-out.

 But I gots jam!

Don’t insult your friend before they have paid for your food… 5. September 2017

 Carrots and coffee for breakfast

 Cookie balls

Kadi bought me the carrots and cookie balls in the morning. I have awesome friends who know that the way into my heart is through food! xD I may or may not have sleepily insulted her when she was paying for the items. It was hilarious. I should not be allowed to talk before I am fully awake.

 Vegetable soup

 A pancake with bacon

 Yoko matcha drink

 Japanese style mushroom curry with rice and marinated garlic
