Yesterday was nice and warm– I went for a long run outside, and a few friends and I even ate lunch in the sun. Not today, though! It’s pouring rain, and more snow is predicted. *Sigh* I wish the weather would make up its mind!
Oh well, at least the cold weather gives me a good excuse to eat one of my favorite warming breakfasts– oatmeal! Not that I don’t enjoy oatmeal in the summer, but there’s just something about a steaming bowl of creamy oatmeal on a cold day that makes me feel all snug and cozy.
In the picture are steel-cut oats, made with raisins, apples, chopped walnuts, and a small splash of soymilk at the very end.
And here’s some GREAT news: Some of you know that I volunteer a few times a week at a local shelter as a dog-walker. Well, one of my favorite dogs was adopted this week! Of course I will miss him, but I’m sooooo happy! He deserves a good home (as do all the dogs there).
I will continue catching up with your blogs later today; right now I am off to make some hot tea!
