October always sneaks up on me, probably because we live somewhere with no fall. My birthday is in two days. Yep. And I'm left with my jaw hanging open, because there is no rain, wind, or clouds, and we've actually had a heat advisory in effect the past few days. It can't possibly be October.
Oh well. At least I can eat hot oatmeal.
You guys know how to make oatmeal. Boil rolled oats with a pinch of salt and water to cover by a finger's width until done to your specifications. Easy. I had this bowl with a couple spoonfuls of plain yogurt and a handful of sesame seeds toasted in a little frying pan. Hot tea on the side. THAT is fall.
Now if only the leaves would turn red and the sky would turn grey.
