Want To Share Some Oatmeal?!

       As you can no doubt tell already, not much is going on in my house today! ^_^ And while that might be a bad thing for some people, for me it's a good thing! The quieter and less chaotic the better!...But it doesn't make for interesting blog posts.
      All I have for you is my 'stream of consciousness' talking, and some oatmeal from breakfast. Want some?! :-) ...

       Oatmeal doesn't photograph well...It smells good!...with the peaches and cinnamon in it...but it doesn't look good!...

      And since I haven't perfected the 'Smell-O-Puter' or 'Taste-O-Puter' yet, this is the best I can do...Sorry.

       I 'can' tell you that I slept through the night last night. YAY!...but I'm not feeling any more rested than before I went to bed unfortunately! Booooooo!...But apparently my brain 'was' getting some rest, because I woke up this morning with ideas floating in my head about color combinations and shapes and whatnot for my lapel pins!
     Then I realized that it's been a while since I checked out the other shops on Etsy that are selling lapel pins!....So I thought I'd check them out, for inspiration...Let's just say: WOW!...

        There seem to be more and more shops doing lapel pins! And lapel pins of all kinds too!...I love the little felt one above. It 'looks' sorta like the ones I make, but mine are crocheted...

      It's nice to see a market out there thriving for all of us! :-) ... As a matter of fact....WOW!...I just noticed that I just sold several lapel pins while I was talking to you!!! :-) ...Okay....I gotta go and check that out NOW!!! ^_^

      By the way, the Quaker oatmeal collection, from my header photo, includes the jar and two bowls!...

       ...It's very reasonably priced too...just saying! :-) ...So, get your oatmeal ready!...Or your oatmeal cookie making personality ready! ^_^ ... That's all I got, people..except for a warm tummy full of oatmeal and peaches. :-] See you tomorrow! Have a good day!


Do you find that you have lulls?
Times when life just has no 'Pings!'
Times when all that you've been planning
has been done! ... and nothing 'sings!'

You don't know what you should do.
Taking naps seem so sublime!
Knowing, when you look around,
that No! You haven't wasted time!

Lots of things have all been done.
But many things that you could do.
But nothing 'Pings': "Let's do this next!!"
The lull just gets the best of you.

Right now I'll try to ride the wave.
No expectation. Just relax.
Keep flipping books for inspiration.
Enjoying colors, brights and blacks.

Soon I know I'll be off again,
deeply engrossed in some new thing.
I'll get such satisfaction from it.
And that familiar little...'Ping!'


  1. Love the oats container, we just get these oats in a box in the UK, great bowls too! you are making me hungry now :)

    Bee happy x

    1. I love that container too! I think it would be a great place to hold oatmeal 'cookies' too!! :-) And the bowls can be used for all kinds of cereal...or whatever! YUM!

  2. I think your oatmeal looks delicious! I know what I'm having tomorrow morning! :) It could be that I'm getting hungry (again!), since it's close to supper time.

    Anyway, I do love those bowls! Really cute! AND congrats on more sales!! You go girl!!!

    1. ^_^ It was delicious too, Bead! There's nothing like oatmeal with some fresh peaches or pineapple and cinnamon in it! Ummmm mmmmmm!...Thanks for the support about my sales too. I suspect that YOU are partly responsible for it....with sharing my shop items on Pinterest. So THANK YOU!! :-)

  3. We get those oats here in Australia although I prefer an Aussie brand. If the weather was cooler here I would seriously consider a nice hot bowl of oats with fruit for brekky. Yum!

    1. Yum!!!...Oatmeal and bananas sounds good to me too! ^_^
