We had just got back from our favourite indoors of the year - Cavaliada! Attending this competition has been out little tradition - we already have "our" spots in Poznan and we love to come back there. Unfortunately, it isn't Lady's favourite arena to compete on :P She was quite nervous, unconcentrated and had waaayy too much energy. First two days were tough (for me to survive :P) but the Sunday's result is satisfactory - we were on the awarded 10th place in Big Round CSI1* final (135 cm). Even though we got back from Poznań at 3 am on a Monday morning, it was worth the effort :)

As I had quite a busy weeks lately (competitions, national holidays, family meetings), unfortunately, i haven't had time to go to the hospital. Instead, to fulfil my service, I prepared a few goodies for charity bake sales :) I made a quiche with goat cheese, zucchini and caramelized onions and butter cookies. As you can see in the picture, they disappeared quite quickly, so I assume they were tasty :P

On this weekend we competed in Indoor Polish Championships elimination in Salio. It was our first start on the national level since spring, and the last opportunity to test Lady before upcoming Cavaliada :) And to be honest - it couldn't go better! We were second during both classes on the first day (Small and Middle round, beating more than 150 horses!). Lady jumped so amazingly that on Saturday we decided to try our first indoor 140 class! And, as you can see from the picture below, the result was great - we finished with one down and point-awarded 8th place! Both, my trainer and I were thrilled :) Sunday was simply the frosting on the cake - with both clear rounds we again achieved 2nd place, this time in National Junior Class! :) To be honest, it was a quite satisfying way to be back!

Finally, after few months without showjumping, yesterday we went to Aromer to compete :) We took part in two classes - 120 and 125. Even though we had had a break, we managed to win both of them ;) good to be back on top!

​A few days ago I made one of the best meals in my cook career - sun-dried tomato tagliatelle with herb chicken, served with fresh tomato salad :) My secret ingredient was Philadelphia cheese - it gave an additional creaminess to the sauce, making it perfect for pasta.

This time I won't give you the recipe, as I will probably patent it in the future :P I am finally confident enough to really improvise in the kitchen - results are now always perfect, but in this case, it was really worth it!

This Monday’s visit in hospital was extraordinary. We met a very talkative older woman, who trapped us with an endless conversation :p Luckily, after a few minutes we were saved by the other patients. Of cause, as a volunteers, we never mind talking and listening to others, but in some cases we are needed for more serious tasks.

When it comes to service, I always write about hospital. But this week I’ve made something quite different, which was not only charitable, but also very pleasant. I’ve baked a cake for our school bake sale :) I chose the autumn apple-carrot cake with peanut butter cream. I dont want to boast, but it was a bestseller :)

Good, old rides are back :) After consultations with Paweł Spisak, polish olympian from Rio, we had totally change our work, finally being able to build a good cooperation with Lady. Now she feels better than ever and every visit in the stable is satisfying for both of us.

A few days ago Maja, Zuzia and I went to the hospital together. As always, we did some groceries and talked with a bunch of people, getting to know something more about the polish healthcare. As it turned out, it's not as bad as it seems, and a lot of foreign patients (even from U.S.!) come to be treated here.

Yesterday I lunged lady before our training, as lately she has too much energy ;) Fortunately it helped and the ride was amazing. We managed to practice our new dressage program, which (as it turned out yesterday) is quite challenging for us. Hopefully we’ll work out all problems during winter :)
