Perfect for fall...

It's very windy here today. Almost Iceland windy! The only problem is all of the trees...at least in Iceland we didn't have tree limbs falling on us all of the time. Heh.

I found something new in the grocery store last week. Quaker "Simple Harvest Instant Multigrain Hot Cereal." Delaney loves the apples and cinnamon version. I just picked up maple brown sugar with pecans this week. Yummmy! The box says "all natural" and now that I think about it, I have to wonder...what's in the traditional instant oatmeal that isn't all natural? Sue, if you have a box of instant oatmeal, please look at the ingredients and tell me. I'm thinking the difference is in the sugars. At any rate, this maple brown sugar with pecans is exceptional! Warms the soul on a cold day.

Today: laundry and putting away Halloween deco.

Saturday: maybe the Chesapeake Heritage Arts Festival. Looks like a fun time! Akemi has been sick since Halloween night so maybe if she is better, Ashley will go, too.

Sounds like a lovely Halloween! Here is my favorite oatmeal:

Irish oatmeal, John McCann's steel cut.

Available expensive in an attractive tin at the grocery store, or in bulk at health food stores. Takes longer to make, but very substantial--sticks with you a long time! Very tasty too...

I have some of that oatmeal. I like the apple cinnamon and just bought the almond one... Haven't tried it yet...
