Darling Zanny and I were delighted to have friends to hack out with today, and we were using our own saddle, so that was pretty special. Zanny loves hanging out with her friend Frank, and he is such a placid boy out and about, so makes me feel lovely and safe. One thing that alarms me when I am on horseback is other horses playing up. The herd mentality can strike and set eveyone off. Zanny was pretty excited about being out and about, but was a lovely girl to ride. My saddle was fantastic.
We are eating summer foods now, and we were given a lovely box of new potatoes. They are divine.
Summer stonefruit is in the shops. Today I stocked up on peaches. Tomatoes are so cheap to buy at the moment too. I love the plump, juicy tangelos in the shops at the moment, and The Crafty Neighbour has a lemon tree laden with fruit.
We are in for another hot day tomorrow. Happy holidays even if you are still working. Make every day a special day.
