Day 152: Ordinary things . . . Oatmeal

Over five months ago I started this blog as an homage to the ordinary things in our lives. I've been sidetracked quite a few times posting pictures from our travels and family gatherings as well as a substantial number of my art pieces.  It's pleasing to see the watercolors as they shine on the computer screen.

Today I return to a reflection on ordinary things.  I offer you the humble and delicious bowl of oatmeal.  This photo was taken in Ireland while we were self catering in Schull.  After the weeks of FULL IRISH BREAKFAST at the B & B's we'd been frequenting, (can you count the vein clogging fats in those meals?) all Ron wanted was a bowl of Irish oatmeal . . . or porridge as they call it.  When we'd ask the B & B owners if they had any we got the reply that "Porridge is only served in the winter."  Hmmmm.  I wonder.  Well, we bought a bag and made our own.  It's nice in a white bowl with a blue rim, don't you think?

A healthier way to start the day than this:

  1. But, um, look! There's VEG on that plate. Doesn't a mushroom and half a cherry tomato (roasted/fried out of all it's nutrition) compensate for the grease and heart-stopping goodness??
