Vet… 1. February 2018

 Quinoa cereal with milk.

 Boiled egg, rye bread with butter and ham.

 Tomato and red rice soup with sour cream. Also drank some kombucha.

 Okinawa style brown cane sugar flavoured potato sticks. Shared wit boyfriend, they tasted okay.

My poor kitties have been to the vet several times for the past two weeks for a check-up and some procedures.

Loki had surgery on the left side of his neck and behind his ear. He had a strange lump on his neck that seemed to be growing over the years. We did try to get a sample from the growth some time ago to determine what it was, but failed, so the doctor decided that the best option was to remove it just in case. During the surgery it turned out that there were altogether three strange lumps on his neck, plus a tumour behind his ear D: Poor Chernobyl kitty! The growths and the tumour were sent in for further analysis.

He was groggy for the first couple of days but seems to be doing better now already. He managed to scratch open the stitches behind his ear at some point though, so we had to take him back in. This time they clamped the wound shut with metal clasps D: He is the Terminator kitty now. Anyway, he is healing now as well.

Kohuke needed her first vaccines and then she got sterilised. No kitty babies for her. There are way too many unwanted kitties out there already, her having been one of them at some point, considering she was thrown out of a car to a farm yard. She is doing fine already, recovering quick and being her usual little rascal.

Totoro went in for a check-up, because she has licked away so much fur from her legs and tummy. The doctor got a blood test done for ailments that could cause this, but all was clear. We would need to send in a urine sample, but that is just mission impossible… we have her locked up for the second day in a row in the bathroom with the special kitty litter and a bowl of water, but she just refuses to go and pee D:

If we manage to get a pee sample and nothing wrong is found with it, then it’s either a) the food she is eating or b) stress. In any case, I hope we will figure out the cause, because SHE UGLY right now and of course, I don’t want my sweet cat to be in distress in general.

End of the trip… 26-27. May 2017

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

 Delicious raspberry juice I bought in Sweden

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

A pointless day and a nice day with blisters… 5-6. November 2016

5. November

 Coffee and a couple of cranberry kohuke.

 Rice with Chinese cabbage, sesame seeds and a fried egg.

 I ate this entire chocolate ice cream.

 Pelmeni with sour cream and salad.

I didn’t do anything useful the entire day. Also I ate too much crap.

At least my vicious little predator is adorable. He jumped smack head first against the window at some point, because a dove got too close xD

6. November

 Coffee and a cranberry kohuke.

 Rye bread with butter and sausage; boiled egg with salt.

 Japanese style pumpkin curry with rice and salad.

 A banana.

It was so nice and snowy outside, so we decided to go out for a walk. We ended up walking almost 12 km and since it was the first time I wore my winter boots this year and my feet were not used to them, I got a huuuuuge blister under my foot xD It was a really lovely day though.

Junky foods, kitty, a good movie and a dream… 25-26. September 2016

25. September

 Pear halva cake.

 Tom yum flavoured instant noodles.

 An apple.

 Vegetable gratin, toasted rye bread and some pumpkin juice.

 Boyfriend took a nice photo of Loki.

26. September

 Oatmeal porridge with different seeds and some honey.

 Fried sausages and tom yum flavoured instant noodles.

 Raspberry lemonade @ Mack Bar-B-Que

 Fried chicken with guacamole

 Pulled pork pizza. I only had about half a slice, because the pizza turned out to be extremely sweet tasting and it was disgusting.

 I ate some fries instead. They were overseasoned and too salty 😦

We went to see “The Magnificent Seven” in the evening. I had no expectations for the movie, because it wasn’t a movie I had particularly wanted to see in the first place. I ended up enjoying the movie a lot. It had fantastic characters and a pretty straightforward storyline which was good. Honestly, I fell in love with ALL of the characters, even though most of them were pretty awful people. I bet the social justice warriors are giving this movie a lot of flak due to blatant racism in it etc, but in my eyes it was the most racially diverse movie with a strong female character I had seen for ages. I was also surprised later that the movie had managed to avoid so many clichés this type of movies usually have. The most notable missing clichés were flashbacks and a corny romance storyline. So if you want to watch something action packed and fun with great characters, I really recommend this western.

Also, Chris Pratt’s smug face for the win! 😀 I had a dream about him kissing me the following night xD Unfortunately the dream me is still faithful to my boyfriend, so I rejected him xD What the heck of a dream was that!?!?

Blurry bits and pieces

Birthday gifts I got from my lovely friends 🙂 So many cool things like sweets and snacks, a painting of Spock, a Dir en grey album, foodie gadgets and a bath toy, also a candle and some nice smelling soap 🙂

I also got this panda shaped onigiri making kit 😀

Some serious onigiri making. My boyfriend always takes such blurry photos for some reason xD

Sadly this time there are no photos of the actual finished onigiri as I got a terrible headache in the middle of making them and had to go lie down. Boyfriend ate the ones I managed to make.

Totoro in her usual “feed me nau, hooman” position

Loki licking all the things

I was also given a chatty bath toy for my birthday. Loki came to investigate it while I was testing it out, so I ended up with some cute kitty footage to share 🙂
