Lisa, Kathy and I watched as the girls got their horses groomed and saddled and then for part of their riding lesson but once we saw that the girls were comfortable and doing great we headed off to relax, chat and sip some coffee.  While we were away the girls finished their riding lesson, did some work around the barn, watered the horses, learned about different breeds and markings, had a snack and did some arts & crafts.  We returned and the girls ate their lunch, finished their crafts and then their first day at camp was over.  Maisie and all the little girls had a wonderful day and they’re all looking forward to tomorrow and the opportunity to ride their horses again and learn new and exciting things.

Exciting things too over on Cook Lisa Cook.  I have joined a Secret Recipe Club and today was my first time posting.  How it works is, each month you are assigned a different participating food blogger and without telling them, you make one of their recipes of your choosing.  Then on a specified date everyone who is participating that month posts their recreation or version of the recipe they made.  I thought, what a great way to find some new food bloggers and try out some different recipes while also forcing encouraging me to post more to my own cooking blog, so I signed up.  So I’m hoping that this will be an additional kick in the tush motivator to help me post more often to my cooking blog.
