Just work… 16-17. June 2017

My current crappy work schedule is keeping me from updating my blog daily, so I update it whenever I am off work and feel awake enough to do so for now. Hopefully my schedule will return to normality soon. I’m getting really tired xD

 Coffee and three strawberry kohuke

 Magus Mull apple-lemon lemonade

 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.

Second day in Uppsala. We did more walking around the town and visited The Uppsala University Palaeontology Museum, which was awesome. All these old animal and dinosaur bones and fossils were fascinating… and also really really scary to me xD History frightens me and I get scared in museums, even though I absolutely love visiting those places.

In the evening, we caught another overnight boat back to Estonia. It was a great trip, I loved it a lot. Sweden is a beautiful country and I am absolutely in love with their nature and landscape.

 Birdie caught a wormie

 Mummified cat O_O

 How cute is that depiction of the fossil?

 This is why I am afraid of the water

 A dragon skull from Russia

 What dinosaurs actually looked like

27. May

 A banana and a coconut bar in milk chocolate

 Porridge with honey and some coffee

 Pelmeni in chicken bouillon with some sour cream

We got back home and unpacked. I took a long nap and then I spent the rest of the evening baking some cakes for the open gardens café event during the Pelgulinna street festival the next day.

 Also, Loki helped me unpack

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.

Adulting is so hard… 7-8. May 2017

7. May

 Smoothie

 Coffee and oatmeal porridge with honey

 A quark pastry and a sausage pastry and a cup of coffee @ Narva Kohvik. Didn’t get yelled at there this time xD

Beef chili with rice and sour cream

 Ice cream from McDonalds

I hung out with Eva for some time during the day. We walked a lot and had coffee in Narva Kohvik. Was chill and nice.

In the evening, I suggested to my boyfriend that we should get out the bikes for the first time and go to Rocca al Mare for some soft serve ice cream. They had a store there that served decent soft ice cream. The bike ride was great, but when we got to our destination, it turned out that the shop had been replaced by a butcher stall D: I was so disappointed! Therefore, we went and got ice cream from McDonalds. It wasn’t as good, but since it had been our mission to get ice cream, it would have been sad to return home without having any.

Also, speaking of bikes… the rats had eaten my bike handles D: Look!:

8. May

 Fresh Freddie coconut, spelt, mint and dark chocolate bar which was delicious + coffee

 Four grain porridge with butter and honey

 Jäämari peanut-butter cherry popsicle. It’s a curse having them for sale at the place I work, because I want to buy and eat them all xD

 A pancake with banana and honey

 Mulk’s porridge (mashed potatoes with pearl barley), grilled chicken leg and orange lemonade

I was dead tired after work, so I passed out on the couch almost instantly after I got home xD Boyfriend was a saviour and brought home dinner.

Work, clinic and friends… 4-5. May 2017

4. May

 Coffee and a kohuke. The kohuke wasn’t very good and I didn’t eat the Cherry-Spice Ampstükk, because it tasted horrible. Disappointing breakfast.

 Breakfast take 2: porridge with honey and butter

 A smoked tofu burrito @ Koloniaal

 Pelmeni in spicy chili sauce with salad

5. May

 Rice crackers with ham, cucumber and sesame seeds

 Smoothie and brownies from Blender

 Saku Antvärk honey pear cider

 Saku Antvärk lime cloudberry cider. Look at my adorable Yurio charm that Eva got me 😀

 Coffee ♥

 Laura Moon’s chili with rice and sour cream

 Cheesecake from Killuke Kooki

I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning which was super stressful. At first my doctor was late and then it was just emotionally quite hard. I was emotionally exhausted afterwards, so I went and blasted a gift card I had in Blender for and energy boost in the form of a delicious smoothie and some brownies.

Later in the evening I had Eva and Marit over for some chili and drinks. Eventually, Indrek came home as well and brought cake. I totally overate :p
