10. June

 Coffee and three strawberry kohuke

 Magus Mull apple-lemon lemonade

 A waffle cone with kama fluff by Vahvlihaldjad

 Bacon pizza by Street pizza

 Some grapes and pastries @ Ebe’s birthday

Foodgasm! I was at work in the morning and afterwards we popped by the Tallinn Street Food Festival. My intial idea was only to get churros, but there was so much tempting food that we ended up eating a lot xD Later in the evening we went to Ebe’s birthday party, so yeah, we totally overate xD But all was fantastic.

11. June

 Coffee, bacon-potato pastry and apple-cinnamon pastry that I shared with my bf

 Pancake with banana and honey

 Oven baked potatoes, cutlets, some salad

 Nettle marmalade. It sadly tasted mostly like sugar.

 Water kimchi! I used this recipe to make it. Turned out great, however I think it needs to sour for another couple of days.

 Potato-barley curry with mayonnaise

Boyfriend was a sweetheart and came to work with me in the morning. We had coffee and pancakes ♥ After work I popped by @ Koht. Elvira treated me to some fantastic passionfruit beer.
When I got home, boyfriend had cleaned the apartment floors. Bless him! I hate vacuuming so much. We had dinner and watched “American Gods”. Good day, good day.

Good job :D … 1-2. June 2017

 Hamburgers and sweet potato fries @ Bastard Burgers

 Nomnom. Sadly, I have no idea what most of this was as I didn’t order it myself and I couldn’t read the menu anyway. It was delicious though!

 Baked tomatoes, chicken and other meats on a stick

 Rice with butter and some sauces. The salad was sadly very bitter 😦

 Cake and ice cream

*

We took Loviise to her horse clinic near Uppsala and then proceeded to just hang out in Uppsala with my boyfriend. We went to Ikea where we bought a bunch of unnecessary stuff with a few useful exceptions xD Then we just walked around the city centre for a long while and visited Museum Gustavianum where they had a lot of ancient Egyptian artefacts on display. I had never seen a real mummy before… it was so cool and it also freaked me out a lot. I mean, one day you die, you get buried and then thousands of years later you end up as a museum exhibit. How fucked up is that? I felt weird taking a photo, because it used to be a real person once, so I didn’t.

Anyway, I had a great time walking around and in the late evening we had dinner at a Persian restaurant together with Loviise and her clinic people. It’s odd to me that horse training sessions are called clinics xD

Sun stroke… 19. May 2017

 A persimmon and rhubarb-oats-spinach yoghurt. The persimmon was surprising, because it had seeds in it. Usually the ones we get in Estonia, never have any seeds. The yoghurt was a good rhubarb yoghurt, but it was disappointing as well, because again, I didn’t find any spinach in it.

 A very gooey cherry pastry

 Wild garlic pesto pasta @ Koloniaal

 Limoncello ice cream

 Vegetable soup with garlic and mushrooms

 Milk chocolate with honey roasted almonds and some coffee

Well, it was the first truly warm, even hot, day. I am not fond of weather too warm, because as usual, my hands and feet swelled up. I felt awful going home from work, feeling too hot, my head started to ache, hands and feet swollen, I was sweaty all over and it was annoying to walk, because my sweaty thighs were rubbing together and hurt. I think it took me around 30 minutes to get home with a stop to the grocery store. I was feeling so sick, head hurt like crazy, so I decided to pop some painkillers and to take a nap… I did so only to wake up an hour later all covered in cold sweat and shivering. I’m sure it was a sun stroke and that it happened because I didn’t wear a hat. The only hat I had with me was a very thick winter hat and I really didn’t want to wear that in the scorching heat. Anyway, I think I’ve had enough of summer for this year, thanks.

“maximum effort”… 17-18. May 2017

17. May

 Cocoa pudding

 Cocoa flavoured candies

 Pasta with chicken and mushrooms

 Pancake with mushrooms and bacon

 Movie night foods: rice with beef, fruit roll-ups, cumin crackers, veggies with crappy hummus dip, some white wine etc.

I was at work during the day and in the evening, we had a movie night with Miss K and Mall. We watched “Deadpool” which was still awesome as ever 😀

18. May

 Coffee, sandwiches with sõir, ham and cucumber

 Chocolate ice cream

 Mulk’s porridge (mashed potatoes with pearl barley) with some salad

 Fritz-limo apple-cherry-elderberry lemonade

I spent most of the day sleeping 😀 I tend to sleep most of my days off away 😀 In the late afternoon, I took out the recyclable trash to the collection site, went and picked up a gift candy box from a sweets store, came back home, made dinner and did all the dishes. I’d say it was actually a quite productive day. For my standards at least 😀
