meh… 24. April 2017

 Coffee, bacon-onion pastry, Parrots organic Inca’n’Chocolate almond bar with seeds

 A pancake with chicken and a pancake with banana and honey. The chef decided to be economical and served the sweet and savoury pancakes on the same plate. My chicken tasted of honey xD

 Fried potatoes with eggs and bacon

To the wilderness… 23. April 2017

 Coffee and banana muffins

 Red currant juice, boiled potatoes, roast pork and some marinated cucumber

 Shared this whole hazelnuts Ritter Sport with my boyfriend

We drove to Uulu, because firewood needed to be made for the winter. I mostly tagged along so I could get out of the city for a change. I left my family to do the firewood thing and took a long long walk in the nearby woods and the sea-side. In my defence, I really really really don’t like being near chainsaws, so I wouldn’t have been much help with the work anyway. I helped to make the food for the working folk later, so I guess I wasn’t completely useless.

Work and sleep, nothing much else… 19-21. April 2017

19. April

 Four grain porridge with butter and a banana

 Mulgi Krõpsud potato chips, Realist sea-buckthorn lemonade and a pancake with ham and cheese

 Pearl barley with mushroom-minced meat sauce and some salad

I splurged on my lunch, because I had a bad day. I was supposed to have a day off, but one of my co-workers didn’t show up for his shift, so I rushed in to save the day until someone else could come in and replace me. Unfortunately, I am the only one there right now without children or a second job, so it only made sense that I’d go. I guess I wasn’t really pissed off at having to work, but because having to work, because someone else didn’t attend his duties.

20. April

 Coffee and some fruit bread

 Öun apple lemonade with red currant

 Eggplant chili with rice, tortilla chips and sour cream

 A banana-honey pancake I shared with my boyfriend

 Pearl barley and rice with mushroom-minced meat sauce

21. April

 Coffee, quark with passion tefruit jam

 My new favourite tea from Marks & Spencer- refreshing cucumber, peppermint & spirulina. So good.

 Azu, which is a Tatar style pork stew, with sweet potato fries and some salad

 More coffee and a Jäämari chocolate ice-cream

 A pancake with mushrooms and bacon + some salad

I was working full day shifts for the past two days, because the guy, who didn’t show up for his shift, didn’t appear for his half-day shifts either on the next days. As far as we know, he is fine, just not allowing any contact. It has happened before. I guess he is no longer my co-worker. So, for the foreseeable future, we are understaffed in the café. They are looking for new people, but it’s not going too well as people don’t show up for their trial days and interviews like promised. Just on Thursday a lady didn’t come in for a trial day like she’d promised and only one girl showed up for an interview out of three who were supposed to come.

You better work… 17-18. April 2017

17. April

 Kiwifruit-gooseberry quark and a cup of coffee

 Some ham and cheese omelette

 A pancake with a banana and honey

 Spaghetti with vegan sausage-tomato sauce

The vegan sausage was weird xD But it was half off in the store, so I gave it a try. The spaghetti dinner was altogether delicious though. Does vegan sausage count as vegetables?

18. April

 Some fruit bread and coffee

 A piece of omelette with sweet potato in it

 My angry lunch. I had sweet potato fries, a schnitzel and a fried egg, because the chef refused to give me any soup D:

 Soothing my upset of not getting any soup with a Realist ginger-peppermint lemonade. I’m in love, this lemonade was so delicious!

 Spicy eggplant chili with rice and tortilla chips @ Koloniaal. This was so so so so good.

 PAI raspberry-beetroot-black currant smoothie

I worked from open until close in the café, because a co-worker fell ill, so I covered his shift, and boy was I tried when I got home. On one hand, I am thankful that there weren’t many customers, because otherwise I would have been dead, but on the other hand, it’s not good for business when there aren’t many customers. :s

Anyhow, here is a relevant blast from the past:

Great day… 16. April 2017

 A Karelian pastry, omelette with sausage, and a cup of coffee

 Burnt tasting coffee @ PEPS

 Their pancakes with mushroom sauce were delicious however

 Had several slices of this lemon cake at my mom’s place with some tea

 Scrambled eggs with some tomatoes, cucumber and marinated cucumber

It was an eventful day. In the morning I went to Snikt with Miss K and bought myself a Spider-Man comic. Then we had our second breakfast of pancakes and then I met up with Janice and her friend. I met Janice online in a dolling community maybe 15 years ago or so and we have been on and off penfriends over the years. It was fantastic to finally meet her in person.

We had some coffees here and there and I showed them around the town for a few hours too. It was so much fun. Later I walked them to the harbour and headed home to make dinner. Dinner got a bit postponed, because my boyfriend went to help my mom with some computer stuff and I tagged along. Good thing I did, because there was lemon cake xD

Change of plans… 13. April 2017

 A croissant with ham and cheese, coffee

 Garlic beef jerky

 Buckwheat-cabbage stew with a fried egg

I was supposed to go museum-tripping with Kadi, but the weather was bad in the morning, so we decided to postpone it to some nicer day. Instead, I cleaned the apartment a bit and ran some errands. At some point Marit called me and I ended up hanging out with her for a few hours. Then a trip to my favourite second-hand store where I found myself another skirt, a cardigan and a cute pendant. The rest of the day was spent napping xD I truly am embracing my inner cat these days.
