Yesterday's trip to the hospital was one of the nicest visits ever. We spent there almost three hours, just walking through corridors and rooms, talking with people. We met two elder, lonely ladies whose families didn't manage to visit them. It was clear to see that our conversations gave them a lot :)

When you are a rider but at the same time you do meal prep... :P That means cooking till late night hours!
As on Wednesday's morning, we were going to Strzegom I needed to prepare my meals for whole 3 days. As you can see below, it was quite a lot of stuff! I decided to make easy things - chili chicken, chicken with Italian herbs, baked pepper, carrot, broccoli, and groats. These things just packed in different combinations make a few meals :)
Fast recipe? Just put vegetables and chicken (wrapped in the baking paper) into the oven in 200-celsius degrees for 20/25 minutes. Voila! Quick tip - don't be afraid to use a lot of different herbs, it will make everything much more interesting :)
Our last competition before the Polish Championships didn't go as we expected but it showed us what we need to practice before the ,,final test". Lady made an impressive progress on dressage (51,3 points with 2 mistakes, 10 place from 40 competitors, 3rd in polish juniors!) and our test looked really good. Just see on the photo how she was trotting!
This weeks' hospital visit was one of the nicest I've experienced. Patients were smiling, weather was finally good and everything seemed to be going in the right direction :) We helped some older lady with her rehabilitation and encounter patients that we had already met a week before. They remembered us! We a few minutes with them and settled on a next visit :)
Something different this time :)
Yesterday, the Communication Day took place! It was a final of our social project. The purpose of Disconnect (that's the name of our project) was to bring attention to the subject of communication in public transport. The response of society was amazing! A lot of people helped, asked about the idea or worked as a volunteer. Chapeau bas to all of you!!
Few days ago we were visited by our friend Wiktoria, who is also a photographer. We've made some exterior photos - the weather was stunning! Lady as full of energy so my ride was quite.. interesting :P Luckily Wiktoria has some amazing skills and she managed to capture the moments that were satisfying :)
I'm truly in love with those photos!
As you can see on the picture, I'm baking some vegetables :) Best of the best: sweet potatoes, carrots, yellow and red peppers, eggplant, zucchini, garlic, onions... To make it even tastier I've added provence herbs that my mom had brought straight from France! Hope it will all work well together :)
I've made quite a lot of "service" things this month so it's hard to decide which one should I describe :) I was in hospital with Zuzia for few times, then helped in some project, helped with oral exams for candidates to our Highschool... And although it costed me some time, it also gave me an enormous satisfaction - especially the exams, where i was able to meet some new people. It was quite funny to see those stressed teenegers, in the same place where I've been just an year earlier! I was really grateful that it is all behind me now!
My mum asked me to made for her something that will remind her of her childhood. The choice was easy - fresh, still warm chałka served with homemade jam. Unfortunately my diet & meal prep is still in progress, so she was the one that ate almost everything.
The recipe was taken from book "White Plate. Słodkie"
We made it! Thanks to our performance on international competition in Sopot (28-30.04) we have got an qualification to Junior European Championships in eventing :) Our dressage test had been scored with 54 points, which with clear cross country and parcour gave us 10th position. We were second from polish riders, and first from polish juniors - this leaves hope for few additional points to PP. Now we need to practice our flatwork and keep fingers crossed - in July we will know if we are choose to represent Poland!
