Do you ever have one of those starts to the week? I did. On Sunday night, I decided to get a good start for the week by doing overnight slow cooker pumpkin oats for weekday breakfasts. I put all the dry ingredients together, but wanted to wait for the milk, pumpkin and water until right before I went to bed and turned the crock pot on. So I did that and got up the next morning to serve breakfast and what do I see? The unopened can of pumpkin sitting there next to the crock pot! D’oh! How does one forget the most important ingredient of pumpkin oats? I ended up just stirring it and it was fine, but man I feel like I am losing it sometimes.
Can you believe we are still riding? This is crazy!
I know it’s going to get chilly this weekend, but looking ahead to Christmas weekend and it’s supposed to be 50s. It makes me wonder if it is actually possible to ride in January? Global warming. I’m sure we will pay and pay hard for this later in the winter, though. The other thing with this warm weather is that I don’t expect Christmas to be next week. Eeeek!
Pixie seems to think it’s getting colder. She has been the lap queen when she isn’t sleeping on the radiators:
This is a little more unusual because Pixie wants my lap probably 95% of the time. Even if I have stuff in it and John’s is open. She knows who feeds her, I guess. I actually think it is because my lap is squishier and more comfortable 😀
I did get a better picture of the tree with the Rebel, too:
Still waiting to get that day off. Work has been pretty busy this week, so it hasn’t happened yet. Or I haven’t taken it yet, is what I should say. I need to just do it. I was saying how this weekend I had no plans at all — at all — for the whole weekend. Then I started thinking of things I could do and John said, “like relax at the cafe, read a book, watch TV, pay attention to me”. Since it doesn’t dawn on me to just relax! 😀 Those actually sound pretty good, though.
