All day long our house smelled divine. It started with the spaghetti sauce which turned out delicious. Later the additional aroma of home made focaccia. I used the recipe from one of my favourite bread making books
I had never made focaccia before, this was very easy and cooked up quickly. This was a good thing because I was cutting it a bit close with the need to leave to take T2 to horse riding. Unfortunately it was too hot to try before we ran out the door.
Our plan was to have a very early dinner as G was working late. Apparently I was unable to wait for the noodles to cook
T2 greeted my bread and sauced spaghetti with complaints and slouched shoulders, already tired from riding and nearing the end of her tolerance for everything, yet she asked for seconds. RESULT!
Second week of riding lessons went really well and T2 remembered a lot from last week. This week she was able to guide her horse through a line of orange cones and around the small paddock without help. The horse she rides is very tolerant and docile, today he wanted to yank leaves from a particular tree each time they passed it which caused quite a lot of unexpected movement for T2 but she handled it well and the second time she didn't hesitate to nudge her heels and remind him to keep walking.
She was concentrating too hard to smile!
No science scheduled for tonight, just some more Charlie Wilcox (it's a good WW1 book. T1 and I are enjoying it) and T2 and I will read the next Magic Treehouse book. Then early bedtime for all of us!!
