November ended with gray skies and ushered in a rainy December. Having just come from a week in Buffalo and driving the first part of the drive in snow; it feel unseasonably warm here, even with the rain and gray. This morning, I went for a walk before the girls awoke. Before we moved, I was in a nice little workout routine. Recently, I really grew to miss the time alone, the workout feel-goodness, and there are a couple pairs of jeans I would still like to fit better. I set my alarm and went a walking.
When I came home, I put baked oatmeal in the oven. So. So. So. good. Make this you won’t be disappointed. All have it with dried cherries & flax seed mixed in: one adds blueberries & milk; one adds applesauce and eats it dressed as a fairy; and one eats it plain with her hands.
We have a date with the girls to watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, tonight. Ella is perched on the top of the couch waiting for her dad to come home – she seems to have forgotten we need to eat dinner before she is allowed to watch the movie.
