WOW I’m so refreshed! I slept until 9:00 today – unbelievable! I stayed up a little later than usual last night watching Project Runway and a new show right after it that’s about the models of PR. It was dece!
You know what I was thinking yesterday? There are hardly any “shows” left on television. Gone are the days of Seinfeld, Friends, Mad About You, Full House, etc. You know, the ones with a live studio audience? Now it’s all reality shows, all the time. Which is fine – I actually happen to like reality shows – but it’s just funny what 10 years can do to television!
Anyways – the Fall weather continued through the night and into the morning…so guess who made a comeback? OATS! It’s actually been so long since I made oatmeal, that I had to consult my own How-to Stove Top Oatmeal directions because I had forgotten how!
I dug out my dried fruits, spices and old fashioned oats to make Fig & Apricot Oatmeal.
In the mix:
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal
- splash of cinnamon & vanilla
- 1 banana
- 3 dried figs
- 3 dried apricots
- drizzle of sugar-free syrup
Oh how I have missed you, oatmeal!
The sweet, creamy, comforting, warm bowl was just what I needed on this chilly morning.
I sure did miss the pOp of those fig seeds too 🙂
I may not be thinking clearly because this bowl of oatmeal was so satisfying and the current temps are so cozy, but…I can’t believe I’m about to say it…bring on Fall! Bring on the football games, crock pot dinners, apple picking, hoodies, leaf raking and everything else that comes along with my favorite season! 😀
Here’s the rest of today’s agenda:
- Catch up on emails
- Go to bank
- Go to drugstore
- Work on blog (ch-ch-ch-changes are in the works!)
- Vacuum & dust
- Relax with trashy day-time television 🙂
Sounds good to me!
What’s your favorite part about your favorite season?
