Pet all the puppies!… 10. October 2017

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

 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.

Coffee grinder… 4. October 2017

 Coffee, a pear and a nectarine

 A quark pastry

 A different style of pasta with squid, grated cheese and some baby tomatoes

 A pancake stuffed with banana slices and drizzled with honey

 A glass of red wine after work. It was a lame wine, the taste of it disappeared in your mouth, so it felt you were simply drinking something… meh.

 Vegetable stew with smoked lamb and some sour cream on top

We went and bought a nice coffee grinder with my boyfriend after we both got off work. It was an early birthday present for my boyfriend that is actually kind of for the both of us :p The grinder will take a bit of getting used to and we will have to figure out the fineness of the grind that is suitable for our coffee machine. The first attempt was with a recommended setting for filter coffee and it wasn’t good at all xD I can’t wait to buy all the amazing artisan roasted beans tho! First I’ll get the Autumn blend from Haba when pay day arrives this month and I think they are going to ship my beans from Dodger Coffee Co soon as well 😀 So excited for coffee!

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

Mushroom hunting… 23. September 2017

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.

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.
