Hanging with friends… 10. March 2018

 Chickpea curry with sour cream, nettle rye bread with butter and ham, a cheese roll and a cup of coffee.

 A vanilla kohuke and coconut chocolate.

 Minced meat pastries and cheese rolls at Kadi’s place.

 Grapes, juice, beer, rye bread crisps, tiny Tosca cakes…

 Chinese chop suey and fried bread from Kathmandu Hill

 I had a hot and sour chicken soup, boyfriend had a chicken wonton soup.

Women’s Day with flowers and cake… 8. March 2018

 Coffee and nuts & seeds in dark chocolate.

 Green pea-cauliflower soup with some roasted pumpkin seeds.

 Pasha cake our manager brought us for Women’s Day. It was surprisingly good.

 Green pea-cauliflower soup with sour cream, nettle rye bread with butter.

I don’t care much about Women’s Day, so I never expect any flowers or anything, but I was still flattered and happy when our manager brought us roses and cake and when my boyfriend came home in the evening with a pretty bouquet of flowers. I don’t have anything against Women’s Day, I just never remember that particular holiday. I do like when people gift me flowers however, no matter the occasion 😀

Where do you eat your meals?… 4. February 2018

 Five grain porridge with lingonberry-apple jam, some chia seeds and butter.

 Moomin shaped marshmallow candies! These were so cute, look at the little Snufkin shaped green candy! Sadly their cute shape was the only good part about these, several of the flavours tasted kind of soapy. Meh.

 Sauerkraut soup with barley and pork. I also added some sour cream to this later. So delicious! I don’t know why I don’t make this soup more often.

 A couple of banana muffins.

It kind of bothers me that I almost always eat behind my computer. We do have a dining table, but it’s usually piled full of crap that honestly should not be there and is in general quite hard to access. For instance right now, I would have to climb over a small fold-table and a giant bag full of motorcycle gear to even get to it…

Feeling better… 2. February 2018

 Buckwheat porridge with bacon and a fried egg.

 Coffee and a delicious semla from Killuke Kooki.

 Miso soup and onigiri with black rice. I like how the added black rice dyed the white one all purple. It’s a very awesome shade.

 Mjuk turmeric kombucha. It tasted nice and refreshing.

 Freshly baked white bread with butter and honey, and a glass of milk.

I am feeling a lot better already. I still sleep a lot and take medicine, but the cold symptoms have toned down quite noticeably. I even had some leftover energy to bake some white bread and to take a hot bath in the evening.

Vet… 1. February 2018

 Quinoa cereal with milk.

 Boiled egg, rye bread with butter and ham.

 Tomato and red rice soup with sour cream. Also drank some kombucha.

 Okinawa style brown cane sugar flavoured potato sticks. Shared wit boyfriend, they tasted okay.

My poor kitties have been to the vet several times for the past two weeks for a check-up and some procedures.

Loki had surgery on the left side of his neck and behind his ear. He had a strange lump on his neck that seemed to be growing over the years. We did try to get a sample from the growth some time ago to determine what it was, but failed, so the doctor decided that the best option was to remove it just in case. During the surgery it turned out that there were altogether three strange lumps on his neck, plus a tumour behind his ear D: Poor Chernobyl kitty! The growths and the tumour were sent in for further analysis.

He was groggy for the first couple of days but seems to be doing better now already. He managed to scratch open the stitches behind his ear at some point though, so we had to take him back in. This time they clamped the wound shut with metal clasps D: He is the Terminator kitty now. Anyway, he is healing now as well.

Kohuke needed her first vaccines and then she got sterilised. No kitty babies for her. There are way too many unwanted kitties out there already, her having been one of them at some point, considering she was thrown out of a car to a farm yard. She is doing fine already, recovering quick and being her usual little rascal.

Totoro went in for a check-up, because she has licked away so much fur from her legs and tummy. The doctor got a blood test done for ailments that could cause this, but all was clear. We would need to send in a urine sample, but that is just mission impossible… we have her locked up for the second day in a row in the bathroom with the special kitty litter and a bowl of water, but she just refuses to go and pee D:

If we manage to get a pee sample and nothing wrong is found with it, then it’s either a) the food she is eating or b) stress. In any case, I hope we will figure out the cause, because SHE UGLY right now and of course, I don’t want my sweet cat to be in distress in general.
