Stomach vs. Rain

December 29, 2008

It’s kinda sad here this morning – we’ve all got a case of the vacation end blues. We’re racing the radar to get in a run before the pouring rain hits, but we didn’t want to miss breakfast so we’re just waiting to digest. It’s an upset stomach vs. getting soaked competing at this point.

I ventured into the instant oatmeal basket and mixed a packet of plain with 1/2 a packet of cinnamon bun with some hot water, cold milk and 1/2 a mashed banana. Plus a small bit of crumbled spice muffin. I forgot all my packed toppings upstairs and just went with this. Probably shouldda gone back for the Barney Butter packet!

Plus some grapes

And coffee – (oats pre-muffin crumble, grapes half eaten)

At least rain + reading go hand-in-hand! I only have 7 pages left in Eleanor and then I’m starting The Blue Bistro by Elin Hinderbrand, which I got for Xmas. It was supposed to be my sunny beach read but my historical queen drama is taking me too long to finish!

I JUST starting reading Blue Bistro last night. I hope that it’s as good as Barefoot. It’s pretty good so far (all thirty pages, hah)… definitely a foodie’s book.

That’s a great read. I’ve read all of Elin’s books and that is one of my favorites (along with The Love Season). I’ve read it several summers in a row on the beach. Enjoy the rest of your vacation!
