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

 A banana and a coconut bar in milk chocolate

 Porridge with honey and some coffee

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

Bags under my eyes are here to stay… 15-16. May 2017

15. May

 A banana

 Peanut butter energy bar

 Pelmeni with sour cream

 Spaghetti with tuna-veggie sauce

I went and picked up my new ID-card at the police office. I hoped that the bags under my eyes would be less visible on the light photo on the ID, but they are quite very much there. I guess I just should somehow try to accept that the bags are there to stay. You can’t fight your genes I suppose.

16. May

 A couple of bananas and a cup of coffee

 Bacon-onion pastry

 Four grain porridge with berries @ Koloniaal

 Roasted eggplant soup and some coriander bread @ Koloniaal

 Strawberry-rhubarb juice

 Whipped quark with strawberries and chocolate syrup

 A cherry-apple pastry

 Lamb stew with a potato and some carrot @ Koloniaal

I worked all day and basically went to sleep as soon as I got home xD

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.

Café time… 4. February 2017

 Buckwheat porridge with raspberry jam

 Coffee and a pancake with bacon and cheese filling @ Koloniaal

 A banana with peanut butter, puffed rice and puffed honey wheat

 Mashed potatoes with mushroom sauce and some salad

My boyfriend took his nephew to see a BMX competition (Simple Session) and since I had no interest in joining them, but didn’t really want to sit at home alone either, I decided to go out for a walk and maybe check out a few cafés I had thought about sending my CV’s to, but hadn’t done so yet, because I couldn’t really tell via Facebook what they were like. I am a bit specific on the places where I’d like to work.

I walked around Telliskivi area for a while and found a couple of new cafés where I’d like to know if they are maybe hiring. Eventually I plopped down for some lunch and a cup of coffee at a place called Koloniaal that is part bakery, part organic food store, part café. The pancake was great and the coffee good too. I ended up sitting there for several hours and reading a book. It was really cosy. I have always wanted to do that: go to a café and read a book, but I have never actually done it. Well at least not as far as I can remember. The café in my university doesn’t count, because that was usually out of necessity rather than pleasure.

Later I pondered over the café visit and the fact that I did something I’ve been fantasizing about for ages. I wonder if this, the fact that I am willing to step out of my comfort zone, means I am doing a bit better? I mean, I do go to cafés often, but usually not alone and if I do go alone, it’s usually to grab a quick bite or buy coffee to go, not to sit there for hours to read or whatnot.

Anyway, it was a new experience. I hope to do something like that again soon.

Walking and baking and partying… 9-10. Dec 2016

9. December

 A persimmon for breakfast

 I baked a peanut butter brownie (after this recipe) and had a few slices for lunch

 Spicy coconut milk soup with shrimp, tofu and rice noodles

We went to our local television studio with the boyfriend to rent some costumes for the upcoming Christmas party at his work. The theme of the party is 20’s fashion and the lady working at the costume department found us costumes in a snap. It was amazing how she just looked us up and down and then picked out the clothes from the long lines of costumes and they fit just right. We didn’t even consider trying on anything other than she picked out for us. Must be years of experience dressing people 😀

10. December

 Omelette and salted cucumber

Party foods:

 Crab rolls, deviled eggs, sült (head cheese)

 Veggies and dip

 Meats and sausages

 Sandwich cake

 Meatballs and chicken wings

 Paté stuffed buns

I ate a bit of everything 😛

 Quark stuffed pastry (had 2 of these), a slice of peanut butter brownie and coffee. I ended up drinking about 3 cups of coffee near midnight xD

I slept in in the morning, so I didn’t get much done that I wanted. I had planned to do the dishes and clean a bit, but instead I decided to laze in bed with a headache. Eh. Eventually I got up. Then we went to the store to get some groceries and also bought stuff to donate to the food bank. Back at home, I baked another one of these peanut butter brownies and then my boyfriend’s brother came and picked us up to go shopping for presents for our friends. Going to shopping centres is crazy right now; so many people 😦

It took us a couple of hours to find what we needed (+ I scored a cute candle holder, a new kettle and a hexbug cat toy) and then we headed to the birthday party we had been invited to. The party was pretty fun and we got back home around 3am in the morning.
