Ghost in the Shell… 10-11. April 2017

10. April

 Some cereal with milk

 A slice of rhubarb cake

 Mushroom soup with bits of bacon @ Koloniaal

 Rice noodles with veggie-smoked tofu sauce. There were only tiny bits of bell pepper in the veggie mix, so I thought it would be okay, but boy was I wrong 😦

 Rye bread with sausage

My second attempt of baking sourdough bread didn’t go too well either. The bread didn’t rise and was too mushy inside again, but this time it had formed some fermentation bubble-holes in it, so I guess it’s some progress at least 🙂 I got some tips from expert bread bakers in the family that I am going to try out next time.

11. April

 Coffee and a cranberry kohuke

 Four grain porridge with jam @ Koloniaal

 A giant chicken Kiev with some salad @ Koloniaal

 Apple juice, a pancake with ham and cheese + sour cream and salad @ Pannkoogimaja. Boyfriend gladly ate all the bellpeper in my salad.

We went to see the “Ghost in the Shell” movie in the evening. I absolutely enjoyed it. It was visually stunning and made me nostalgic for the anime. I am so glad that I saw in on the big screen, because of all the beauty and spectacle in it. Good times 🙂

The Bifrost Incident… 7. April 2017

 Rice cereal with milk

 Tomato soup with sour cream and mozzarella

 A cheesecake flavoured kohuke

 Buckwheat-cabbage stew with sour cream

 A cherry pastry and a chocolate doughnut

I spent the day listening to The Mechanisms album “The Bifrost Incident” on Spotify. I am so in love with it. It’s as if the band had opened my head up, fished around in it for ideas and then wrote this album. It’s brilliant. I had goosebumps and was jumping around the room in excitement while listening to this masterpiece. This hasn’t happened to me in a long while.

Basically, it’s like a story told in a musical form, with different voices singing as different characters. If you are into Norse mythology, steampunk, Lovecraft or all the previously mentioned, be sure to give this album a listen. You can listen or buy the album here or look it up on Spotify 🙂

Working girl…3. April 2017

 Combined corn cereal and puffed rice cereal with milk

 Peko x Sanrio Characters Strawberry Party chocolates… and coffee 😀

 A pancake stuffed with ham and cheese + some uugra on the side @ Koloniaal

 Delicious quark doughnuts that my bosslady made 😀

 Mashed potatoes with turkey sauce and some salad

Sleepy Saturday… 25. March 2017

 Corn cereal with milk

 A pear

 Coffee time with Miss K @ Café Mademoiselle

 I had a “naked” burger that was delicious.

 Miss K had a risotto with zucchini and sesame seeds. We shared a bit of each other’s food.

 Spinach pelmeni with sour cream and some salad

I think I spent most of my Saturday sleeping. I woke up late, puttered around for a bit and made my first ever attempt of baking sourdough rye bread. I think the sourdough starter hadn’t properly kicked in yet, even though I let it sit for over 24 hours. The bread didn’t raise properly and was doughy inside. It did however taste alright. Better luck next time perhaps.

Then I felt sleepy and decided to take a “short” nap, but ended up sleeping for almost 3 hours xD

In the evening, I had a mission to go get cat food from the store and conveniently also organized to meet up with Miss K for some coffee and food too. It was great 😀 However, they guy sitting next to us, reading a book and drinking wine, obviously didn’t appreciate our discussions on eating bugs and maggots and about killing chickens as he kept angrily looking up from his book and glaring at us xD

I ended up going to sleep again super early in the evening. Well, around 11 pm is early for me at least.

Trial day… 3. March 2017

 Corn cereal with milk

 Cheese balls with dip @ Koloniaal

 Pumpkin soup with hemp seed and juniper rye bread @ Koloniaal

 Lentil soup with sour cream

 Coffee and a cherry pastry

I had a trial workday at the café/bakery/grocery store and it went well. I was quite overwhelmed with all of the new things I had to remember, but I think I did alright for a complete newbie 🙂 Also some of my coffee making knowledge is outdated and I need to learn some new stuff too, because the last time I was manning a coffee making station, there were no such things as flat whites and even the word americano was a very foreign concept. It’s cool tho, I love coffee and am keen on improving in that front.

I guess I’m getting the job as I was invited back on Monday to learn the morning opening procedures for the place. Welp, keeping my fingers crossed that it all will go smoothly and that I will not fuck up anything by accident. I am already wary of the chemex pot, because I’m afraid to break it xD I probably wouldn’t be this afraid of breaking it if I hadn’t been warned not to do it xD Oh boy, I hope I will get used to everything quickly and won’t worry so much anymore xD

It’s a cool place though and I am looking forward to working there 🙂

French fry pizza… 15. February 2017

 A banana

 Corn cereal with milk and a cup of coffee

 French fry and wiener pizza @ Rohuaia Kohvik. This made my inner 5 year-old all giddy and it also tasted great 😀

I had a long day. I don’t know why I thought it would be a good idea to go to a workout at 7:30am, but I did xD My boyfriend was a sweetheart and sent me to the gym, even though he really didn’t have to get to work that early. The workout was alright even though I struggled to stay awake even while moving around xD

Then I came back home, had a quick breakfast… and woke up on the couch at 10:45am xD Oops, I almost missed the time when I was supposed to meet up with Kadi. I sprinted out of the door and just barely made it in time. Kadi drew me an awesome Deadpool picture that I will scan soon, so I can share its awesomeness. Anyway, we did a round in a couple of second-hand stores and after that I had to go to Rakvere with my boyfriend and his family. They had some business to take care there and once they were done, we had a lovely meal in a local café.
