Oatmeal Weather

Dear Reader,

I woke up this morning to a pour-down, dreary-down weary day.   Woke up to a saucepan full of soaked, steel-cut oats in buttermilk and water.  Rinsed them clean, topped them off with water and set them to boil for 15 minutes while I had my morning devotion.  Closed with an Amen & poured out the mush into a baking dish (no need to fumble with fine china in the ay ehm).  A dollop of pumpkin butter and a splash of whole milk.  Maybe a squidge of whipping cream.  A plop of heaven after my supplication.  I spoon thee, oatmeal rendered autumnal and sweet, so sweet.

    I'm sorry that you had to wake-up to a down pur of rain. That's never very motivating. However, your oatmeal breakfast sounded like a good one.
