Mushroom hunting… 23. September 2017

 Skyr with cherry jam

 Coffee and cookies

 A really crappy ham and cheese pastry. This was awfully dry.

 Brioche with honey

 Omg, look at this chicken!

 Stewed chicken and vegetables with some tomato salad

 A yummy rum pastry

 Rye bread with butter, some sült and tomato

We went to Southern Estonia for the weekend. When we got to our destination, we were greeted with a delicious chicken dish for lunch. After the glorious meal we went to the forest to hunt for mushrooms. I think we spent over 4 hours in the forests… sadly we didn’t get as many mushrooms as I had hoped, because the season for them is over, but it was still great as a long hike.

 Looks fluffy, but it was not

After the mushrooms adventure, everyone else went to a party nearby, but I was too exhausted to join them, so I took a nap on the couch. Later when they were back from the party, we went to sauna which was really nice…. I’d say it was a day well spent.

Fish… 9. September 2017

 Coffee and onigiri. The onigiri were made with tuna seasoning, some ponzu and half of them were stuffed with leftover ham bits.

 A banana.

We went to Vapramäe Trout… farm? Anyway, to a place where you can catch your own fish and then the house will prepare it for you. There happened to be an Atlantic sturgeon in the basin as well and Agu managed to catch it :p I didn’t try catching the fish, I think the kids were having more fun with it anyway.

 Some Atlantic sturgeon and trout with various shapes of potatoes. Sadly, the sturgeon tasted like mud, so I ended up not eating it. The trout and the potatoes were good though.

After the fish event, we drove to Karula where general chill was planned. I fell asleep on the couch there for a few hours, because I was still tired. It did me good though.

 Some tea, sült and bread with butter.

 Pihtla Õlleköök Viljapuna (Irish red ale). This was drinkable, but the taste was altogether quite unmemorable and maybe just a bit too bland.

 Pihtla Õlleköök Ingveriõlu (ginger beer). This tasted nicely of giner and wasn’t too sweet, so I quite liked it.

 Breaded parasol mushrooms that were oh so yummy!

Therapy… 4. September 2017

 Two cucumber sandwiches for breakfast

 A milk chocolate trilobite that I got from the Estonian Museum of Natural History a while ago. Finally decided to eat the cute thing :p

 An apple and some cardamom biscuits

 Tomato soup with black rice, quinoa and sour cream; two sandwiches with cucumber, tomato and some ham

 Teekanne Lemon Cake tea and a sandwich with crunchy peanut butter. I am not a big fan of that particular tea, but I am a sucker for odd things and want to try weird flavours, so this is why I got it initially. The lemony flavour of it is okay, but there is another flavour nuance next to it that makes it taste off for me. Perhaps it’s the cake part of the tea that I don’t like xD

So, I am going to therapy now. Once a week for the foreseeable future. So far it doesn’t feel any different than going to a psychologist, but then again, I think the therapist is still getting to know me. We’ll see how it goes.

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 😀

Making Mud Angels… 12-13. May 2017

 And a couple of rum pastries

I had a difficult day at work, because my neck and my right shoulder were hurting a lot when I moved. It was a pain operating the coffee machine and I kept dropping things when my hand went slack from sudden pain. Thankfully it wasn’t a very busy day, so I could sit and rest on one of the couches in the café quite a bit.

My boyfriend took part of Oro 4×4 Offroad 2017. I tagged along to hang out with Loviise near the track and to take photos of the event… however, I did bring my camera, but forgot the camera battery at home D: Really lame, because this event would have made some really nice muddy shots. Anyway, here are some crappy phone photos instead:

 Birch grove

 Froggy 😀

 Mud rain incoming!

 More birch trees. I am awful fond of birch trees.

 My boyfriend got “a bit” muddy XD

Speaking of my aching neck and shoulder, they were hurting quite a bit still in the morning, but the pain was almost gone by the evening. So yay, it wasn’t a sign of an upcoming illness at least 🙂
