Mom and I slept well and woke to the sunrise at 7. I didn’t have a bit of desire to go exercising, but the thought of taking a beautiful fall morning stroll sounded marvelous! So that’s what I did. I read blogs on my phone, chatted with Matt and took in the cool morning dew.
As much as I love to sweat, run and things, I sure do prefer walking. I should do it more!
Back at the HQ, Mom and I went down for a cup of tea and ran into Uncle Mel and Aunt Betty!
Uncle Mel is 101 years young!!
And if your curious what a 101 year old eats for breakfast? Oatmeal!!
I asked Uncle Mel what his favorite decades were. He told us how he was at Woodrow Wilson’s Inauguration and watched Roosevelt say "We have nothing to fear but fear itself" live! His favorite president was Truman, who he had the chance to meet in person before he was president.
I had a cup of tea and banana while we chatted before breakfast with Gram.
After a shower and things, Mom and I went up to Gram’s apartment where she was busy making soft boiled eggs on toast!
Smooshed onto some toasted + buttered Great Harvest bread I brought!
Served with a side of fruit (I love stewed prunes!)
And a hint of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip
And tea and OJ. Perfect grandmotherly breakfast!
We’re going on a morning shopping trip followed by lunch and then my quick trip comes to a close. Hope the afternoon is traffic free!
