Today was a good day for many reasons. Firstly, riding today went really well. I as able to trot without holding onto the saddle. I need to get a little bit better on that and then I can begin to canter. My new set of breeches for riding and my new riding hat seem to work well and are really comfortable. And because I have some time off this week, I will get in 2 riding lessons instead of just 1. That will be fantastic because I do look forward to riding every week.
The second good thing is that we have some colour samples on the en-suite wall. I couldn’t be decisive so we ended up with 9 sample pots. I think we have it narrowed down to 2 and I will be painting starting on Wednesday, as I took the end of the week off so I could do just that.
The third thing was I did a little voice work for a friend who does a small programme for a volunteer radio station down south. The first episode aired and I listened to it afterwards. I was pretty stiff, but by the end, not too bad. Again, a fun little side project that I am enjoying at the moment.
Finally, today was my last day of cooking. I had another go at salsa which was much better. I think I will need to keep experimenting with how many jalapenos to put in it until I have it the exact spiciness I like, but until then, at least experimenting is helping me with my veggie intake. I have started to compile my list of things I have learned over this month. Some are small things mainly related to cooking and some are bigger, more general things I have learned about myself. Either way, first month nearly done and hopefully tomorrow I will write up my lessons learned.
