I meant to post on the weekend but I got sick and hence felt much more like reading blogs rather than writing my own. I did get out to ride Edgar on Saturday. No pics, sorry. Must drag Sasha out one of these days. The ground was much better (not frozen solid) but it is really uneven earth. I guess it will be good for teaching him to mind his feet, but not great for many things. Oh, to have an arena...
By Saturday night I was sick so I was pretty boring on Sunday. I DID make some hot toddys with the scotch I bought on my way back from Ireland in February. [What? I haven't blogged about my trip to Ireland or posted photos?? It's on the list!]. This was the first time Sasha had one, he really liked it! This photo isn't mine, but looks pretty close. Here's what I do:
1-2oz Scotch or Irish Whiskey (don't argue, just pick one :) )
1-2 Tb Honey (to your taste; when my throat is really sore I go for 2Tb)
1 slice lemon
Extra lemon juice, if desired
I stud the lemon with the cloves and drop in mug. Add scotch and honey and top with enough boiling water to fill mug (if mug is big, leave an inch or so at the top...or use more scotch etc!). I don't use cinnamon, but it would probably be good.
Oh wait! I wasn't completely boring on Sunday (pre-hot toddy)!! I somehow convinced Sasha to drive me to the horsey store so I could spend too much money on new paddock boots and half chaps. They made me feel a little better, hee hee. They are way too pretty right now. They will look much better with some dirt and sweat. Will fix that in my lesson tomorrow, no doubt.
We also popped into the "feed and seed" to purchase some seeds to start. We have: arugula (rocket), rainbow swiss chard, mesclun mix, and kale. Can't wait to bring things to life!
