Rainy Start

Well, the rain came back this morning. It’s coming down right now and has been thundering this morning so I don’t think today is going to be very pretty. Our tomatoes need more rain, though, so I guess that’s good!

Since it was so dark, gray and gloomy this morning, I needed a bright and colorful breakfast.


Thank goodness for fresh fruit!


  • 1/3 cup oatbran, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 sliced peach, blackberries, raspberries
  • 1 Tbsp pecan pieces


I love fresh peaches, and these ones from the market are so good. I wish I had bought more!

I know what you’re thinking – no pancakes this morning? Believe me, I have a few more ideas but I only have enough egg whites to make ONE more batch, so I’m saving them for a fun one tomorrow  :)

This week feels like it’s gone by so slow, but I’m glad it’s finally Thursday.

Do your weeks feel like they go by slowly or way too fast?

Mine are usually super slow, unless it’s fun stuff or vacation – then everything goes way too fast!


  1. That breakfast looks gorgeous! I definitely feel like these summer weeks are going by WAY too fast! I cannot believe it’s almost August already:(

  2. This week seems to be dragging by but I agree, the fun times always fly by!

  3. I was just thinking about how this week seems to be DRAGGING…ack, so glad tomorrow’s Friday!

    Enjoy your Thursday- can’t wait to see your pancakes!

  4. “thank goodness for fresh fruit” – i totally agree! i feel like time has been flying by recently – there aren’t enough hours in the day!

  5. mmmmm peaches!

  6. My weeks have been going by super fast! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. It’s weird because it’s not like I do a whole lot to keep me occupied.

    Anyway, your breakfast bowl is beautiful! So beautiful that expectations from my tastebuds would be high :) they’d be satisfied for sure.

  7. tooo fast! I love the oatmeal, B. I can never see it, and that is just another reason I love you. :) XOXO

  8. Boo to the rain! This week has been going by WAY WAY too fast!

  9. i don’t know what else to say but GORGEOUS! nothing like bright and juicy fruit to start a day :)

  10. Since I am unemployed my weeks all seem to blur together. I never know what day of the week it is.

    Your breakfast looks delicious!

  11. Yummy mix of a breakfast! This week has been going so slowly for me, too.

  12. I hear ya–fresh fruit is one of my favorite things! I’m with you–weeks usually go by pretty slowly, except when I’m on vacation doing fun stuff!

  13. sorry you woke up to such a gloomy morning!
    fresh fruit is the best.

  14. i dunno…i guess life is going by a lot quicker recently….i rarely find myself sitting around twiddling my thumbs, like in the past….
