It’s fall! Now it’s finally time for all those fall things. Like pumpkin oats! I made a big batch Monday for the last breakfast before our company left and had leftovers this week.
I know some people don’t like leftovers or batch cooking, but it truly is so nice when you have been super busy and you don’t have to think about what to eat! Work has been back to really busy again and it was nice to have something to pull out of the freezer and heat up. I am also laughing at all the fingerprints on John’s phone
This is that funny time of year where the overnights get really cold and the temps are nice during the day. Our breakfast ride on Wednesday was so cold! It was about 45 when we left the house. I was layered up like crazy:
My eyes were watering a little bit, too. Even though I wear eye protection, the cold makes them water. It’s going to be too cold for morning rides soon. 40 is close to the cut off for riding comfort. I’ll walk in those temps, but riding is not very comfortable when it is that cold. John and I both decided we are going to try to ride a little longer into the cold season if we can with thermal stuff.
John got me a window birdfeeder for my birthday this year. I wasn’t actually sure how many birds would come that close to the house. Turns out quite a few! Mostly chickadees and a few sparrows. The tufted titmouse is now feeding heavily at feeders at this time of year to store seed and they love this feeder. Or they love the safflower seed, I guess.
Stealing seed and ready to leave!
This feeder has been great, I have to say!
It’s fall – so it’s time!
Yes indeed. This makes great ride fuel, too. It’s a nice change from dried fruit 😀
